Reolink Cameras NVR/Netcam Studo X

Hey there!

I’m having an issue where, when I put the information for a new source in NSX, I’m only getting one camera. I have multiple REO link systems, but right now I’m just trying to add one. On this system, there are 16 cameras, however, when I add the info, I’m only getting the one camera stream.

Any thoughts?

Thanks!

Hi,
When you connect to a Reolink system each camera has a unique URL, for example
rtsp://ReolinkSystemIP:port/canera1
rtsp://ReolinkSystemIP:port/canera2
etc.
In NCS X you add each URL. You cannot add one URL for all cameras.
You have the basic URL for the system so you need to change something at the end to get the next camera. This is what I can say whithout more info.

I apologize, I’m somewhat new to camera systems.

So, in the “add video source” menu, in the “Network Camera” tab:

I have chosen the brand, I’ve checked that the RSTP port, IP, and usernames are correct, however, I can not get through using the method you provided.

Is there a place within the NVR to find the URL for each camera? Or, is this something I define by the IP, port, and camera name?

I apologize, and thank you for your help!

To clarify, if I type in just the IP in the “Server IP/Host” field, I will get the first camera in the NVR, but when I type this in the way you mentioned (I’m sure I did it wrong, however - lol), it gets a timeout error.

Hi,
We are getting closer :slight_smile:
The Reolink RLC-410 is a specific camera. However, it is very interesting that you get the first camera when just write the IP number in that field. This is a little detective work :slight_smile:
Do the following.
Use the tab for Custom URL:
Set stream type to rtsp_tcp
In address write:
rtsp://username:password@192.168.111.169:554/h264Preview_01_main
username is: admin
password is what you use.

Save this and if we are lucky you will get the video from the first camera.
If this works select Add camera again and tab Custom URL. This is for camera 2
Now use:
Set stream type to rtsp_tcp
In address write:
rtsp://username:password@192.168.111.169:554/h264Preview_02_main
username is: admin
password is what you use.
Save this and maybe camera 2 will also show up.

If this do not work we must take a closer look on that NVR, what model it is, to find that specific URL to address camera 1, camera2 etc.

It can also be this easy. Use
rtsp://username:password@192.168.111.169:554/1
rtsp://username:password@192.168.111.169:554/2
etc.

Exciting :slight_smile:

Oh, awesome! That worked!

I’ll see if I can get something more going with this, here in a bit. I have around 44 cameras I need to add. It seems that maybe I will need to pay for a license if this is the case?

Excellent, but please write which URL that worked so the next user don’t have to guess :blush:.
44 cams need a license for 64 sources.
When you add the cameras keep an eye on the cpu and gpu load. Depending on what you want to do 44 cameras use a lot of resources. Use hardware acceleration.

rtsp://username:password@192.168.111.169:554/h264Preview_01_main

This one worked, I actually tied that before, but the problem was that I didn’t change the stream type. bleh - I should have known better. lol

Thanks so much for the advice and help!! <3
