Hi Fmuser, all,
I just received a FBE200-H.264-LAN and I am facing an issue trying to record/view an RTSP stream.
The setup is fairly close to the default settings, and the encoder is directly connected (static IP) to the computer recording/viewing via ffmpeg/vlc.
The input is a computer (1080P-60FPS). The picture coming from the computer looks fine when viewed via the output of the HDMI splitter that also feeds the FBE200.
The settings used are the following:
The ffmpeg command I use is:
ffmpeg.exe -i rtsp://192.168.1.168:554/main -acodec copy -vcodec copy test.ts
ffmpeg.exe -rtsp_transport udp -i rtsp://192.168.1.168:554/main -acodec copy -vcodec copy test.ts
When viewing in VLC, I use the same URL (rtsp://192.168.1.168:554/main).
In both cases (ffmpeg and vlc), I get different results every time I try:
- Sometimes it just fails, providing the error “rtsp://192.168.1.168:554/main: Server returned 404 Not Found” [ffmpeg provides this]
- Sometimes it starts to record, but for 10 seconds, and just stops.
- When viewing in VLC, I get a similar behavior: sometimes it just fails, and when it does not fail right away, it just stops playing after a couple of seconds.
As you can see on the screenshot the device version is: E264-20180408.
Can you provide some guidance that would help diagnose what is going on?
Do you advice using other parameters/options in the ffmpeg command I use?
Is the firmware I have stable (I don’t see it on the firmware topic of this forum, it seems newer than anything posted on the forum)
