getting '[ERROR] Uncaught Exception Invalid RTSP Request-Line:'

  • When my camera is on for a while and I try to reconnect, I get the following error in my logs:

    2020-05-09T16:45:32.235Z [ERROR] Uncaught Exception Invalid RTSP Request-Line: '\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000

    (and so on about 200 more ‘\u0000’)

    I am able to sucessfully connect to the camera using VLC and the only way to fix the issue is to restart the service. I am using docker, but I was having the same problem prior to using the docker container. My camera type is

    Manufacturer:Amcrest  Model: IP2M-841W

    Anyone know what to do? I assume my next move is to try some sort of tool to check the request responses from the camera. I’m assuming they are fine (or VLC is just better at dealing with them). Then I guess my only step is to run they typescript source from an IDE and see if I can find out the issue myself. I’d rather not have to do that (not to mention I may not be able to do so).

    Any ideas?
