I have a number of Foscam IP cameras that I am trying to stream on the LAN. PMSencoder is loaded and working and I have added the stream URLs to the Web.conf file. I can see the folders under "Video" however when I navigate there the response is "There are no titles". The cameras also stream to Surveillance software (Blue Iris) which I have also set up to re stream the video with the same result. All of these streams play properly in VLC.

The camera streams are RTSP h264 video with URLs of type rtsp://user:password@(IP address):88/videoMain, so my WEB.conf entry is "videostream.Cameras, Front Door=rtsp://user:password@(IP address):88/videoMain". The cameras cannot be set up without authentication so in case that was the issue I tried tapping the un authenticated re-stream from Blue Iris with WEB.conf entries of type "videostream.Cameras,Front Door=http://(IP address)/h264/FrontDoor/temp.ts" MPEG-2 transport stream and " videostream.Cameras,Front Door=http://(IP address)/h264/FrontDoor/temp.h264" raw h264 stream and videostream.Cameras,Front Door=http://(IP address)/h264/FrontDoor/temp.m3U8 also videostream.Cameras,Front Door=http://(IP address)/mpg/FrontDoor/video.mjpg" M-JPEG stream all with the same result.

I would prefer to get one of the above methods to work if someone has some advice. As a last resort Blue Iris is also capable of streaming Flash Media Live Encoding (RTMP). Not sure if PMSencoder can tap this directly or if I would have to install a Flash Media Server and re- stream again from there.

I'm curious about this as well. Is it currently possible? Or could it be? It would be very much appreciated! :)

I did eventually get it to work although it is pretty crappy. The syntax I was using wasn't quite right, the stream requires a name. Once I got that bit right I started to get somewhere. The only stream I could get to work even half decently is the h264 raw stream from the Blue Iris server. The stream takes about 15 seconds to load, and even when loaded is always at least 10 seconds behind real time. I was expecting a much better result especially since the Blue Iris app works flawlessly on both my iPhone & iPad. The app even works brilliantly remotely when on 3G while I am downloading torrents on my 20/1 Mb ADSL connection.
