How to Find a RTSP Address for an ONVIF Compatible Camera/NVR/DVR


Who should use this?

If you’ve already setup port-forwarding for your device, but Angelcam can't find a stream automatically and/or:

  • Your device documentation doesn't mention a RTSP or MJPEG stream path

  • Your camera supplier or manufacturer provides no support

  • You can't find any documentation or information on Google

Finding a stream path

  • Step 1: Be sure that you are on the same network as the device you're trying to discover (advanced users can also try to find a stream address for remotely accessible cameras as well, just use the "Add" button and specify the public address and forwarded ONVIF port of the remote device)

  • Step 2: Download and install ONVIF Device Manager (Windows only)

  • Step 3: Click the "Refresh" button to scan your network

  • Step 4: Select "Live Video" from the menu

  • Step 5: Copy the stream address, shown under the live video, to your clipboard (be sure to replace your local IP address with the public one when connecting directly)

  • Note: if your camera is password protected, be sure to enter your credentials in the upper left corner.
