VIVOTEK FD8134v

by billkater » Sun Sep 04, 2011 2:01 am

Looking for support for the VIVOTEK FD8134. I have my working by using the IP7361 camera. But would like to get full support for the FD8134.

Thanks

billkater,

Is something not working with the "VIVOTEK IP7361" settings? If not, keep using them and I'll make a note that these settings are good for the FD8134 too.

Thanks!

It is just that the VIVOTEK FD8134 has 4 video channels and I am not sure on which one it is recording off of. I want to be sure it is getting the best quality stream.

Thanks

Bill,

Vitamin D Video will always just use stream 1 using the default name (live.sdp). If you want to do something more advanced (or change the default stream name), you'll need to go into manual mode. You can use "Other IP camera", "rtsp" protocol, and a stream path like "live.sdp?tcp", "live2.sdp?tcp", "live3.sdp?tcp", etc. The "?tcp" is a trick to say to try to use TCP instead of UDP, since TCP is better for video analysis.

Having a camera listed in Vitamin D Video doesn't give you anything special over specifying the stream path manually if you know the right path to put in--it merely makes it much easier to configure any of the cameras that we've already figured out the proper path for (and on some cameras, lots of different settings can be specified so that users don't need to go and tweak as much on the web page). From looking at the Vivotek manual, there's really not much to specify in the stream path--it's up to you to configure the camera how you want it (quality, size, FPS, etc).
