2.4 Using the VLC player This camera supports RTSP streaming, here you can
view the camera using VLC player.

When the network speed is bad, here you had better select videoSub.
For example: IP:
RTSP Port number : 554
User name : admin
Password : 123
Here I can enter one of the following URLs in the VLC.
1) rtsp://admin: 123 @ 554 /videoMain
2) rtsp:// @ 554 /videoMain
3) rtsp://: 123 @ 554 /videoMain
4) rtsp://admin@ 554 /videoMain

Open the VLC, and go to Media  Open Network Stream option, then enter the
URL into VLC


Create windows shortcut by copying the VLC shortcut, and add it to the "target:" field
of the shortcut

On linux create a shortcut on the desktop by whatever means and add the rstp URL
to the target address as well.
