Getting MPEG streams from TL-SC3171/G

  • Enable RTSP in the camera (leaving the default RTSP port of 554, otherwise modify appropriately the following steps' URLs)
  • Point your monitor to an ffmpeg source to rtsp://<camera-ip>/video.mp4 to get the stream configured as the MPEG4 "Computer View" in your camera, so you must match width & height and set color depth to 24, or...
  • Point your monitor to an ffmpeg source to rtsp://<camera-ip>/video.3gp to get the stream configured as the MPEG4 "Mobile View" in your camera, so you must match width & height to whatever you configured there, and set color depth to 24.

Tested working fine with audio codec enabled & disabled, with multicast streaming enabled & disabled, with viewer authentication disabled & enabled (put rtsp://<user>:<password>@<camera-ip>/... in above URLs) and with uPnP enabled & disabled.

In both cases worked fine over wifi at maximum resolutions and color depths allowed by the camera in each case (640x480 24bpp 30fps at fixed "excelent" quality on "Computer View"'s mp4 and 320x240 24bpp 10fps at fixed "excelent" quality on "Mobile View"'s 3gp streams).

The side effect is that MJPEG stream is disabled when you enable RTSP for accessing MPEG streams, so you can't do both at the same time.
