wyze cam running openipc

Post by botzen67 » Sat May 12, 2018 2:13 pm

Bleeding edge question here. I have a V2 wyze camera running openipc. (From what I understand it's the same underlying hardware as Xiaofang)

I'm trying to get it hooked up to ZoneMinder. So far I've been able to connect to the RTSP stream but when I open the monitor I get a blue screen.

(sorry for using a screenshot, when I tried to export the log to a text file I got a server error)

Has anyone been successful getting a wyze cam to work with ZoneMinder?

Use VLC to check the stream and resolution. Zoneminder will show the blue screen when the resolution is wrong.

Did you happen to get this figured out @botzen67? Considering a jump to ZM to run some Wyze cams (v2).

Looks to me like you need to add auth info.

I THINK I FIGURED IT OUT.

I have only one camera connected right now, but you do need to make sure the IP is correct. I fell prey to the autofill of my browser and it tried to use another URL I had in that field recently. The IP was wrong. When changing the IP, I was able to get a feed. Then you also need to make sure you set the max FPS to 100 (at least that's what I set it to.) I have been streaming a WyzeCam V2 running OpenIPC to ZoneMinder on Ubuntu for the past 30 minutes.

It's a bit choppy at times, but with my current network speeds, I am able to stream a solid 10-15fps with an occasional 5 second freeze.

Anybody still trying to get this working? I came back to it after a while and keep finding the same thing. I can get ZoneMinder to connect using various resolutions but then after a brief period of time (less than a few hours) the ZoneMinder connection seems to "die". Using VLC I can always access the RTSP feed so I know the camera is still working. Just curious if anyone is seeing similar results.
