Ha ha, of cause I will. Thanks for telling me. Then it will be much easier for me as well.
1. Excellent choice to move to Netcam Studio (NCS). That will be much easier for all.
2. RTSP = Real Time Streaming Protocol. HTTP is another protocol that you might recognize that you use when using a browser like Internet Explorer or Firefox. It is used for communication between your web browser and the web server. RTSP is another protocol for transporting data on the Internet, but rtsp is optimized for transporting video and audio in real time.
3. Transporting video on the network involves a lot of data transfer today. Especially, when you have cameras with a very high resolution for good video. For some years ago it was 640x480 pixels that was very good. Today it is megapixel cameras like your camera 2560x1440 pixels and to send that amount of pixels 20, 25 or 30 times per second is a LOT of data. To not kill the networks the data need to compressed and then transfered to a computer to be viewed. The protocol h.264 is an efficient mathematical algorithm that first compress the data in the camera. Then it is transmitted to the computer where the computer decode that information using the backward algorithm of h.264 into data that can be stored and viewed on the computer. Other protocols for video is mpeg4, mjpeg, jpeg ..... It depends on the application which one is best to use.
4. Your camera with a lot of pixels only use h.264 and rtsp so we must configure NCS to communicate that language so the computer and camera and communicate with each other.
5. That amount of pixels, motion detection and maybe more will put some demands on your computer. If it is only one cam it will probably be ok. You can check this later on the CPU load at the bottom line of NCS.
6. OK, connecting.
7. Start NCS X (Server) first. Click on Add Video Source.
8. See image below.
9. The address is
username and password to the camera.
ipaddress to the camera
Click on Save and you should have the video image from the camera, I hope.
It is always tricky to find the correct rtsp, but I hope this one is correct.
10, Please, read the manual where you have more info about motion detection and all the other features.
11. At the bottom you can also see the CPU load. CPU:xx %.
Let´s start with this and you are welcome back if/when needing more assistance.
Edit: I forgot. In the configuration of the camera for the video Reolink have a choice on the h.264 codec. If I remember correct it is Basic, Medium or High. It seems that it must be in BASIC to work. The other to choices are not standard yet what I know.
