i have an Amcrest NVR. it can record any cams with ONVIF, even no names ones.
just got some cheap wifi cams with RTSP, no ONVIF :( seems my NVR has no way to view nor record RTSP. i can use VLC to view but i dont want to leave my PC up for recording.
is there a cheap NVR that can do RTSP? budget less than $150.

+1^^.
For main stream, try this (first is no authentication, second is with. Insure there's 2 "/" after "rtsp:", as forum software won't allow 2 to be displayed consecutively):
Code:
rtsp:/camera-IP:554/cam/realmonitor?channel=1&subtype=0
Code:
rtsp:/user:password@camera-IP:554/cam/realmonitor?channel=1&subtype=0
The channel # in the URL may be redundant when setting up channel 1 and may possibly conflict with the NVR setting for channel so I'd suggest leaving it out entirely ("channel = X") and select the channel in the NVR.

I am guessing Eufy RTSP is special then. this format works in VLC rtsp:/user: pass123@192.168.1.209/live0

tried in Amcrest NVR as you suggested. pasted "rtsp:/user: pass123@192.168.1.209/live0" in main stream. left username and password boxes blank.
(i had to put a space between user and pass or else you would see an emoji )
no luck.
channel number and remote channel was left blank but nvr auto filled when i hit Save.
i tried filling in username and pw too but that did not work....

Sorry, did not consider that the cams were not Amcrest (re-branded Dahua).
What is the model of the cam?
Also, the URL that works with VLC did not require the RTSP (port 554) in that URL?

Specify the username and password in the fields for those details. Not in the main stream field.
Or try leaving them blank.
Add in the port number too (554).

Add a stream URL as well.
Likely rtsp:/192.168.1.209/live1
Without sub stream set, the video in that part appears black.
It still records the main stream video.
i tried your live1. didnt work. i just put live0 for sub stream too. no problem.
