Working with IP Security cams!!

Added by Ressler Khan almost 2 years ago

Hi all,

first off, I've only just installed TVHE and have mucked around with what I thought would be an easy thing to do... I must be doing something silly/wrong because I can't get it to work..

Basically what I'm doing is trying to get my security cams to display as an TV source on my Plex server.. Many say that it can't be done, but I've found places which say it can..

Plex -> TVHProxy -> TVHE -> Security cams

the part I'm having my first issue with is getting TVHE to see the cam streams. I must admit that I have no idea what I'm doing, and I'm after a walkthrough kind of guide.

So far, I've gone through the initial setup (it's running on a Synology NAS, no tuner)

and I've added a network, then added a mux with the rtsp stream URL of the cam but it just won't work... the stream URL (from the cam) plays fine in VLC, just not when it goes through the TVHE

any help would be greatly appreciated

let me know if you want more info

thanks

Gotta use the pipe

make a separate network
make a mux in that network
give it a separate channel number, choose ethernet adapter
scan create

put this in the address box

pipe:///usr/bin/ffmpeg -loglevel fatal -i rtsp://root:/axis-media/media.amp -vcodec copy -acodec copy -f mpegts -mpegts_service_type 0x01 pipe:1

that works for an Axis camera, not sure what yours is?

works here make sure FFMPEG is installed and current

The solution worked for me thanks to the community and the members for the solution.
