My name is Zoran, just checking in to say hello.
I'm quite new in Blue Iris and home surveillance but I'm happy to learn.

So as every newb I figured to hit the ground running and bought my self some cameras.
Among which, one Imou Cue 1080p... and of course, it was impossible to get a live stream out side of dedicated Imou app.
Long story short, I found a way!

To tap in to it's rtsp stream type in this:

you just have to set the password first in the app and then use it here

Since this is quite handy little cam for indoors and there's no such info on whole internet, i thought I'd share it here.
Hope it will be helpful to somebody.

Looking forward to digging in to here!
Sorry for possible bad English.

Cheers

zoky

:welcome:

Welcome to the world of video surveillance lunatics. Be sure to look at the WiKi, in the blue bar at the top of the page, and study, carefully, the Cliff Notes that are in there. It'll save you lots of time, money and frustration.

My standard welcome to the forum message.

Please read the IP Cam Talk Cliff Notes and other items in the IP Cam Talk Wiki. (read on a real computer, not a phone). The wiki is in the blue bar at the top of the page.

Read How to Secure Your Network (Don't Get Hacked!) in the wiki also.

Quick start
1) If you do not have a wired monitored alarm system, get that first
2) Use Dahua starlight cameras or Hikvision darkfighter cameras if you need good low light cameras.
3) use a VPN to access home network (openVPN)
4) Do not use wifi cameras.
5) Do not use cloud storage
6) Do Not use uPNP, P2P, QR, do not open ports,
7) More megapixel is not necessarily better.
8) Avoid chinese hacked cameras (most ebay, amazon, aliexpress cameras(not all, but most))
9) Do not use reolink, ring, nest, Arlo cameras (they are junk), no cloud cameras
10) If possible use a turret camera , bullet collect spiders, dome collect dirt and reflect light (IR)
11) Use only solid copper, AWG 23 or 24 ethernet wire. , no CCA (Copper Clad Aluminum)
12) use a test mount to verify the camera mount location. My test rig: rev.2
13) (Looney2ns)If you want to be able to ID faces, don't mount cams higher than 8ft. You want to know who did it, not just what happened.
14) Use a router that has openVPN built in (Most ASUS, Some NetGear....)
15) camera placement use the calculator... IPVM Camera Calculator V3
16) POE list PoE Switch Suggestion List

rtsp stream ( see post #1, thanks @zoky )
rtsp:/admin"password@192.168.1.x:554/cam/realmonitor@channel=1@subtype=1
