Axis 211M IP Network Camera and

Sep 28 2008 | 2:05 pm


I’ve been trying to get to read from a network camera. To get some image on a browser I can use:

method 1:×240
for on-demand jpgs


method 2:×240
for a live stream of jpgs, pushed by the camera

both are using a motion-jpeg codec.

It works well in Safari, but in I get no results. The CPU spikes immediately and no image at all.

I already used a strategy were I would download using jit.uldl but writing to the disk is obviously too slow.

Note that I tried both http methods in quicktime using "open url" and I can get the static image (method 1) with no problems, but when I use server pushing (method 2) Quicktime says it’s an invalid url.

Any ideas are well appreciated.

hi there. i bet you were totally thinking that this was a dead thread.

i just made this work with an axis p3384-VE ptz net cam, with 30fps at 640×480. you need to put a configuration message in the RTSP url.

read rtsp://×480

should do it with no problems. cheers!

And for a non-Axis camera what would the lingo be like?

I found another solution for Axis cameras, but it does not work with mine. And I bet it is all related to what I should type after rtsp://.

Any suggestions? What should I write for a generic camera instead of rtsp://×480
