Hello all.


I am new to IP cameras, although I have just bought 5 Reolink which work perfectly and reluctantly purchased the RevoTech that being the cheapest and smallest something was telling me stay away and boy o boy do I wish I listened to my instincts. This Revotech I706 has to be the most user unfriendly camera in the world. I need help as I am trying to live-stream with it and after following many instructions and guides I am still having no luck.

So the camera is on the Poe network and has an ip address, I am able to login to the web interface to change settings and one of the items in the ui is a live preview of VLC in which I can see the camera working but absolutely no control options.

So I try to stream media in VLC using

rtsp:/admin:[Password]@192.168.0.72/mpeg4 or

rtsp:/192.168.0.72:8554/live0.264 or

rtsp:/admin:[mypassword]@nnn.nnn.nnn.nnn:8554/live0.265)

Revotech say to use rtsp:/username:password@IPaddress/mpeg4

However still no look and VLC comes back with an error

Your input can't be opened:

VLC is unable to open the MRL 'rtsp:/admin:BirdBox2022@192.168.0.72:8554/live0.265'.

The camera uses port 80 for http and port 8554 for rtsp and the video codec is H265

I am totally stumped any help or advice would be appreciated.

Thank you.

If you had joined IPCT and researched the Reolinks products BEFORE you purchased, you likely would have not bought them.....sorry, just being honest.

Anyway, re: the Revotech, here's some more URLs to try. Note that I used the normally default internal RTSP port of "554", not sure if it merits using "8554" in your URL except externally. Of course if you logged into the cam's webGUI and it already states that it's "8554" then of course, you'd use that.

NOTE: In all cases there's 2 "/" after "RTSP:", the forum software won't allow posting 2 consecutively! :idk:

Code:
rtsp:/username:password@192.168.0.72:554/live1.264
rtsp:/username:password@192.168.0.72:554/12
rtsp:/username:password@192.168.0.72:554/1/stream1
rtsp:/username:password@192.168.0.72:554/profile1
rtsp:/username:password@192.168.0.72:554/profile0

Thanks I will try the URL's the cameras are exactly for Wildlife projects. I'm not a camera expert but I bought five different types of the reolinks for different purposes in all cases they were setup in two minutes and did exactly what they said on the tin and so I'm happy :)

I was troubleshooting a similar issue for a cheap $35 Revotech pinhole POE 6688 (I706-2P) and blue iris wouldn't find the video until I put the Discovery/ONVIF port to 6688. That changed the Main stream to /profile0 and the sub to /profile1. Putting this here in case you or other folks are having the same issue.

Now if I could only figure out why the camera loses signal about three times an hour....
