Thanks for your replies.
The following rtsp address works on VLC and shows the 4 cameras for my Channel Zero feed. .57 is the IP of my NVR on my LAN.
According to VLC my Channel Zero feed is H264. VLC codec info tab shows:-
Codec: H264 - MPEG-4 AVC (part 10) (h264)
Decoded format: Planar 4:2:0 YUV
I tried to use the @fake-fmtp parameter as a Monocle tag in the settings but Alexa says “Hmm, the camera isnt respodning”.
For additional info, I know Monocle on my Echo show can access my camera feeds in two different ways:-
By accessing each of my cameras directly on my LAN.
By connecting to my Hikvision NVR then showing the camera feed via that IP (.57).
For example, the local IP for my front camera is:-
101 is the camera IP address and /101 is ch1 feed 1 (its a coincidence they are both “101”.
The IP for my NVR is .57 and my front camera os No 1 (101)
Both of these addresses work in VLC and both work in Monocle.
So I know Monocle can access all 4 cams either directly or via my NVR. This is why I think it should be possible to view my channel zero feed by connecting to my NVR on rtsp://192.168.1**.57**:554/Streaming/Channels/001/
The 001 being channel zero feed 1 (primary feed).
Robert, you mentioned getting captures of the Monocle Gateway log file and inspecting that to see where Alexa seems to be failing on the stream.
How can I provide you with the Monocle Gateway log file?
