I am connecting to IP cameras by registering them as a stream files. To register a stream file, we need to populate
"Enter a name" and
"Stream URI". fields.
Consider a stream file “
Test.stream” and the corresponding Stream URI is
rtsp://invalidurl The stream file gets added through the engine manager.
Now when I try to connect to this stream through the engine manager, it gest connected and I could see it listed it in the
Incoming Streams tab. Although after getting connected, the Status of the stream is always Waiting for Stream and it never becomes Active as the RTSP uri is invalid but I expect that this connection itself should fail as the RTSP uri for the stream does not actually exist.
is this the default behaviour of the ‘connect to the stream’ feature using engine manager, what are the scenarios in which this connection fails if any ?
