Geovision stream

Postby Art Dustman » Fri Jan 02, 2015 10:39 am

I would like to get my geovision cameras to stream to the web clients. I installed the gv-server which gives me an RTSP and http stream (supposedly) but don't know where to go from there. I see a few posts where people claim to have solved their problem, but no mention of how they accomplished this. I'm working on getting the feed in a browser first; and could use help there since I get only a video feed window, but no video.

None of the RTSP streams will ever be able to be viewed in a browser without flash or on the mobile clients. You'll need to configure motion jpeg streams in order to see the live streams. Otherwise you'll only be able to grab single images and force them to refresh using the reload option.

Any idea how to do that. I've been through the manuals and forums and can't get anything to work.

I would have to remote into your GV server to experiment. I know I have done this in the past to at least get the static images.

There are 2 steps you need to do to get streaming from Geovision.

1. I had to install and configure GV-Mobile Server to stream to the Web clients. In GV-Mobile you can configure HTTP streaming. You simply check a box to enable the streaming and assign it a HTTP Port. You then can configure the motion JPEG to meet you needs.

2. On the MLServer share you will need to create a HTML file for each camera stream ( I save these files to the project directory of my client HTML pages). Your file will need the following lines in it:

<html>
<body>
<img src='http://ServerIP:Port/jpeg?cam=1'> Note: Server IP = the IP address where you have GV-Mobile installed and Port = the Port number you defined for the GV-Mobile HTTP port. cam=1 refers to camera 1 in GV-Mobile
</body>
</html>
3. Now in the MainLobby Scene Designer create a Web page box. For the URL address list the HTML file you created in step 2.


Hope this helps.

You don't really need the dedicated web page. All you need to do is drop an image on the scene and set the image path to the url for the camera stream. http://ServerIP:Port/jpeg?cam=1.

That works for me. I was being silly and tried to actually test the URL first in a browser and it would never work. Tried what Dave suggested and it works fine. I did eventually figure out to setup the GV mobile server. Thanks!
