RTSP camera acting... weird

  • I have 2 SCICAM cam cameras, they allow RTSP viewing of the stream and this works on other NVR software setups but in Shinobi they act strangely, the little iconified preview works but it goes in and out, and if I pull up the main view it's just black.

  • Did you try different stream types? I'm using RTSP and I have best results with Stream Type "HLS (includes audio)" and Video Encoder set to "auto". Also you could try reducing the bitrate of your camera.

  • nothing is working fro me.. i am getting the same error

  • I just activated motion detection and now I get the same error. Could you try disabling motion detection and see if that is causing the problem? Go to global detector settings and change enabled to "no".
