Hikvision DS-KD8003 Camera not working



  • Hello,

    I’ve tried to connect a DS-KD8003 camera but it didn’t work with the echo show 2nd gen. (I don’t use the monocle server, all my dahua cameras work find with the echo show 2nd gen. without the server :)). The stream is working without any problems in VLC or other security software.)

    These were my settings:
    rtsp://192.168.1.74:554/Streaming/Channels/101
    DIGEST
    correct username & password
    720p Resolution (1080p didn’t work either)
    H264
    no audio codec (G711 didn’t work)

    Does anybody know what to do?

    Thank you in advance,
    Max

    Have you tried using VLC player on the same LAN to see if the stream works with that?

    Your IP looks okay.

    rtsp://192.168.1.74:554/Streaming/Channels/101



  • Thank you for your response. Yes, the stream works with VLC.

    My IP has the forward slash on the end (my cam is on .57)

    rtsp://192.168.1.57:554/Streaming/Channels/101/

    Try using the / on the end.

    If that doesn’t work try VLC as a test.

    I’ve tried using the / on the end but it didn’t work with the Amazon Echo, it worked with VLC. In VLC the stream works with the / and without.



  • Does anyone know why the rtsp stream is working with vlc but not with the echo show, the picture on the show is only flickering for some seconds and after that I get a “camera is not responding” message from alexa. Very strange… Is there something I could try to make it work?

    Thank you in advance,
    Max

    Are you using the Monocle Gateway with this camera?

    Thanks, Robert
