    Hi, is anyone using Zoneminder with their Reolink cameras? I have tried to configure Zoneminder to use the RTSP stream, but I can't get it to work. The RTSP stream from the cameras is working with other software, but Zoneminder is a little bit complicated to configure. My configuration is shown in the image. Any ideas? Thanks!

    How about changing the port to 8000 and try?

    It looks like the problem is with Zoneminder, not with the camera. I will post again if I figure it out. Thanks!

    Zoneminder on Linux system currently could not support. However, reolink is working on its web login. It will support Linux, Mac and Windows system to login by HTML5 compatible web browser like IE, EDGE, CHROME, FIREFOX, SAFARI, etc.

    Hope all of our customers will have better experience with reolink items.

    Use source type: Ffmpeg
    Use source path: rtsp://username:password@address/h264Preview_01_main
    Use remote method: RTP/RTSP

    Your capture width and height much match what the camera is set to output.

    You only have to use Windows once to setup the camera with your preferences. After that, zoneminder reads the camera fine.

    I cannot get the actual zoneminder web interface to show the camera feed with the settings gbiggins listed above. All I get is the attached image. However, I can get the camera feed through zmninja (Zoneminder app) with the same exact settings. All zmninja does is pull the info from Zoneminder so I am not sure what is wrong with the interface. My main issue I still am working on is getting the main stream to feed smoothly. Right now it only shows maybe 1 frame every 20 seconds. If I use the sub stream it comes through just fine, but who wants to use the sub stream.

    I got a RLC-410 working similar to gbiggins’ settings above:

    Source Type: ffmpeg (on first tab)
    Then, on second tab:
    Source Path: rtsp://YOURIPADDRESS:554/h264Preview_01_main
    Remote Method: RTP/RTSP
    Capture Width: Must match the setup on the camera
    Capture Height: Must match the setup on the camera

    I also had to lower the FPS on the camera to about 9.

    If this shows green on your ZM main page but still can't see the rendering, note you may need to have Java installed on your browser machine if you are rendering with the Cambozola client.

    I also had an issue with a headless CentoOS ZM install, and apparently due to memory, it wouldn't render either, so had to do a GUI installation of CentOS.

    Good luck!

    Similar to gbiggins, only some minor changes on a RLC-410

    ffmpeg
    rtsp://ipaddress:554/h264Preview_01_main
    width and height as setup on your camera, i modified to 1280×720
    also, lower your FPS on the camera to 9

    This works for me and shows the monitor as green on the main zm page.

    If it is green there, but you can't see the video, you need to check if you have java installed on the machine you are browsing from.
