Need help setting up PTZ with ONVIF compatible IP Camera

Post by shahmir_k » Mon Apr 20, 2020 2:58 pm

Hello everyone I have recently switched from Blue Iris to zoneminder and everything has been very impressive so far. I was wondering if I could get some help setting up PTZ with my camera.

The model is a Besder C-P05 or C-P05(EN)C. The link to where I purchased it can be found here ... 4c4d6DlXgd

I have the video stream up and running, but the PTZ controls don't work at all. I've edited both the onvif and netcat onvif control files to have my pan/tilt distances set but there's no change when trying it on the monitor. I've tried various different things for Control Device but nothing seems to work.

The PTZ controls work fine in it's own mobile app YCC365, and also on the android app Onvifer. I tried looking through the settings in onvifer to see how it was controlling the ptz but I couldn't come up with anything other than some Control Device paths that didn't work.

I read how some people have modified the netcat control script and fixed it for their cameras, but my coding knowledge isn't advanced enough to figure it out by myself. If anyone could please point me in the right direction I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you
