I currently have around 50 namebrand (axis & sony) live IP cameras being ingested by RTSP into my Wowza 4 stream manager and they are properly pushing to my CDN. I am using the RTP Medicaster type.

I recently attempted to add an offbrand IP camera to the same exact workflow using RTSP and are unable to view the stream in the stream previewer. It also does not show any bytes out to the CDN, despite having plenty of incoming data.

The rtsp stream in question plays without any issue in VLC.

Should I be using something other then the RTP media caster?
Are their certain criteria for the RTSP to meet to be compatible for Wowza 4?
Despite it playing fine in VLC, does using this url structuce prevent it from working with wowza? rtsp://ipaddresshere:2081/cam1/h264-1

Thank you!
