Unsupported Phylink Network Camera setup


#1

I tried to hookup a new Phylink IP camera model PLC325PW It is supposedly ONVIF compliant, but the netcam probe did not find it.

I borrowed the ‘blue iris’ setup instructions and got it working with this custom stream path:
rtsp://admin:password@192.168.0.193:554/live/0/h264.sdp

Other notes:

  • VLC actually crashed trying to access this stream (though it did show
    an image for a few seconds).
  • The camera did not like my use of Fiddler to sniff the traffic. I even enabled https snooping but that did not help either.
