Just some info on streaming from an Axis camera that I have working, if anyone is interested.
Here is what I added to the web.conf
change username and password to your actual settings. If you have your camera setup for anonymous access just remove "username:password@" from the entry.
change xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx to the actual i.p. settings of the camera.
On the camera change the setting for
system options/advanced/plain config/network (group)/session timeout/
to "0" (that's a zero). This will allow the stream not to stop after 60 seconds.
My box is a ubuntu 9 server 64 bit. It takes about 25 seconds before the video displays and the stream is about 5 seconds behind.
You can leave the camera setup to do a live stream of mpeg4 video(for normal web viewing) and this mjpg stream will still work.
I found this page: http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/research/dtg/research/wiki/axisCameras very helpful.
Now for what I could not get working(again for the interested)...
Here are a couple of examples of the working rtsp on VLC:
With VLC on XP they connect in about 2 seconds and are about 1.5 seconds behind.
in PMS this did not work):
I did not wait for more than a minute for the video to come up in PMS, so I can not be sure it was not just bufering it however.
I hope this helps someone.
Thanks for making this program. It is wonderful and getting better day by day!
