Onvif camera, what about?

Solved

I bought a new lowcost camera with PTZ, onvif compliant (sricam SP020).

Android app see the camera.

Windows app see the camera.

Onvif compliant cms, see the camera.


all of these is working.

Except zipabox, that is unable to detect the camera. The manual clearly confirm that zipabox is onvif compliant, so it MUST work.

what about?

thanks for that resource.

anyway the problem is zipato.

They state that if the camera dispatch rtsp , is compatible: mine do that, I can configure it in every app that support rtsp. Except zipabox.


Their zipabox manual clearly state about onvif compatibility. Mine is onvif. I configured in an android app (not the cam app) as onvif camera ad it works. With zipabox, I'm unable to find reference to onvif.

find out what the RTSP stream url is and put that in the hi-quality stream box. You can find it by either using software like iSpy or onvif device manager.

Zipato is not onvif compliant, despite what the manual says. It would be helpful if it was, as onvif is an easy to use and setup camera protocol. Though not so secure as rtsp.

For getting proper paths for your camera you can use

https://www.ispyconnect.com/ to get correct rtsp, mjpeg and/or snapshot path

Additional tool only for rtsp is https://sourceforge.net/projects/onvifdm/

Sure sure, I know what the paths are (anyway they do not works. They works on ipcamera app, on onvif compliant apps, on tinycam pro for android (as onfiv or as a rtsp stream).. but not with zipabox.

The fact is that, like often happen, zipato declare a thing and do another. Manual say that zipabox is Onvif compliant, and I expect that is really onvif compliant.. and not that this is a lie or a joke.

I have to say another word, and I'll open a ticket about it because I think I'm not alone.

After url setup in web UI, watching the stream by webUI fail.

It fail locally or remotely, hi or low res.

It fail with firefox, chrome, and edge; it fail with or without adobe flash installed (new browsers abandoned flash in favor of html5...).

BUT

watching it in android app.. it works, HD and SD!

So the issue stay in the webUI and/or flowplayer (that is used to play the video stream).

As I said I already know the right paths, anyway thanks for suggestion (I already know that application).

I just discovered that the issue stay in the webUI probably in the flowplayer, used to show the streams.

With the path I configured I'm unable to see the stream from the webUI (don't mind if Firefox, Chrome or ms edge) but, opening from Android app.. It works,locally and remotely.

So paths are correct.
