Ref Monocle streaming to Echo Shows, unless instructed otherwise BI passes through the camera resolution, and as my Shows are reluctant to play high resolution streams, I have to specify h and w in the url to resize - eg rtsp:/[BI IP]:[Port]/[camera or group name]&w=1280&h=720.Yeah I was able to confirm VLC works locally and on a remote PC so firewall shouldn't be a concern. It might not be compatible with the cameras that I have, but I don't think that should matter given that from monocle's perspective, blueiris would be the "camera".
If you have some luck with it, please provide an update. Thanks.
FYI, there is a +/- 10s lag so the Show isn't a good device if you want live monitoring.
