Hikvision DS-2CD2332-I RTSP Auth issue


#1

Hello,

I implemented a DS-2CD2332-I camera. I am able to use the 2232-I5 model profile without issue, until I upgraded the cameras firmware. The upgrade set RTSP authentication to Basic on the camera. At that point NCS is unable to connect even with the proper username and password. If I disable RTSP authentication on the camera then I can access the video streams again.

Is there an issue with NCS using RTSP Auth?

RTSP authentication is pretty standard in NCS however maybe the implementation is not 100% complete (digest auth is not supported).

Anyway the format and support should be very similar to what VLC supports. Please ensure that your urls work in VLC using rtsp://username:password@ipaddress:port/streamname

and then with a working url in Netcam Studio.
