Thread: IP Camera Live Stream

  1. #1

    Default IP Camera Live Stream

    Hello

    I am trying to get a live stream From an IP camera I have set up. I am following the tutorial on how to set up a live stream using RTSP, and when I go to test the player in Wowza, it gives me an error code of #2048 I cant not figure out where I am going wrong. The camera is a H264. I can use the vlc to stream the camera with no problem. Can someone point me in the right direction Please!

    Thank you!

    Hi Joe,
    First, make sure your .stream file does not have a .txt extension.
    Are you getting any errors in the logs as to what the issue may be? You can start Wowza in stand-alone mode[install-dir]/bin/startup.bat (startup.sh on Mac) You can then monitor the log output in the Terminal.
    Can you post what you see here? Posting the logs into a code block will make them easier to read, to do this add "[code]" before and "[/code" after with a "]" after the "e" to close.

    Also take a look and double check your configuration against the troubleshooting tips and related articles of this guide:

    Hi Salvadore,

    I am new to this whole concept. If you could bare with me and provide some basic info for these questions that would be great.
    How to I make sure my .stream does not have txt extension?
    Where do I look for the logs is this in the Wowza streaming engine. Or on the server logs?

    Thank you

    Joe, the .stream file should be located in the content directory, you can find it inside [install-dir]/content
    It should be called someFile.stream, and not someFile.stream.txt

    To start Wowza in stand alone mode, first make sure Wowza is stopped, on Windows:
    1:Open a Command Prompt window (press WIN key + R, type cmd in the Run dialog box, and then press ENTER).
    2:Execute the following commands:
    cd %WMSAPP_HOME%\bin
    shutdown.bat
    Then run:
    cd %WMSAPP_HOME%\bin
    startup.bat
    On Mac:
    To stop Wowza open a terminal window and enter the following command:
    cd /Library/WowzaStreamingEngine-4.0.1/bin
    ./shutdown.sh
    Then run:
    cd /Library/WowzaStreamingEngine-4.0.1/bin
    ./startup.sh
    These commands assume you are running Wowza 4.0.1.

    I have verified that it is a .stream file and when I run the

    cd %WMSAPP_HOME%\bin
    startup.bat
    the CMD says.
    INFO server comment -Wowza streaming engine is started!
    What should my next move be?

    Do you have a user name and password associated with this camera?
    If so you can try adding these to the camera URL like this (NOTE: not sure what your URL looks like, found this example thru Google search)
    rtsp://userName:password@[camera-ip-address]:554/cam/realmonitor?channel=[CHANNEL]&subtype=1
