Hello,

I'm trying these strings on VLC without success

rtsp:/stream:Stream1!@192.168.7.45:554/cam/realmonitor?channel=1&subtype=0
rtsp:/stream:Stream1!@192.168.7.45:554/cam/realmonitor?channel=1&subtype=1
rtsp:/stream:Stream1!@192.168.7.45:554/cam/realmonitor?channel=1&subtype=2

could you help me?

H.264 is set
and lower freq and resolution are set
RTSP is enabled on port 554

thanks

Tested the following URL on VLC with Dahua cameras using a Dahua NVR.

Code:
rtsp:/user:password@192.168.1.108/cam/realmonitor?channel=3&subtype=0
Change out the user name, password, URL and channel number to fit your needs.

In my case RTSP is setup to monitor channel 3 (camera 3 on port 3 on the NVR). For your use, change the channel number to view the desired camera from three to one.

If it's the cam's IP use "channel1".

This works great with VLC for mainstream (subtype=0) in an Amcrest IP2M-841, a Dahua-rebrand:
Code:
rtsp:/user:password@Camera-IP:554/cam/realmonitor?channel=1&subtype=0
Of course, place 2 "/" after "RTSP:", forum software won't allow 2 in a row! :idk:

Here is an image of the URL that works for my needs. It may not be appropriate for your use.

Added it as an image to make sure all of the code was displayed as noted above.

ok, I tried a lots of combinations, as I describe on the first post

I have a camera with 3 streams enabled.
So, I have just channel=1
and subtype=0; subtype=1; subtype=2
with different resolutions and quality
But all with H264

there is no way to view the stream, I'm going crazy...

The URL has to be perfect: location, order and number of forward slashes, colons, and so on...perfect.
I tried a good operating URL as I posted above and if just ONE item is incorrect (IP, port, punctuation, order) the error "Your input can't be opened:" pops up.
If the IP is wrong you get "Connection failed."
If the user or password is wrong a popup appears to let you log in with the correct user/pass.

So...if you have reset the cam, re-entered the IP, username and password and you can log into the cam's webGUI using that IP, user/password successfully and you are still getting the VLC error popup "Your input can't be opened:", I ask that you post 2 screenshots of VLC; 1 of the "Your input can't be opened:" error and 1 showing the streams you've tried, ("Media" => "Open network stream" => "Network"); it should look like this:

Hello, after the camera reset the decoding has become h265 for primary and secondary streams.
So I activated the third stream with h264.
From VLC the URLs do not give an error but nothing is seen.

I'm able to see the stream from camera web page of-course, from its APP on tablet, but nothing from VLC, and nothing from Fanvil Intercom IP Monitor like model i52W (where in fact I need the stream).

Is onvif auth enabled ? - try opposite.

Also can try adding this parameters one or both at the end of your current URL:

&unicast=true
&proto=Onvif

...nothing happens on VLC.

I'm using milestone Xprotect and there it works... I can't understand..
I would like to try the stock camera firmware I updated days ago, but I can't find it.

Is there a web repository where I can find and try previous firmwares?

thx

In your first post it was noted that you were missing a / which I'm sure you fixed.
What about the password?
What special chars are you using?

Try just the ! because I know 100% that works but a long time ago there were problems with some chars.
And I've never had a problem with VLC from any dahua cam or any IPC at all TBH once you know the URL it just works.
Under powered PC, network problems, sure; try adding some buffers to VLC config in case of crappy network.

What firmware are you on now?
latest off dahua web:

So by the power of google, search for:: "DH_IPC-HX5(4)(3)XXX-Leo_MultiLang_PN_Stream3"

And you'll get some results for older firmware.
Sometimes downgrading is locked out, then you have to get tricky with TFTP etc.

Are you sure the camera is outputting the third stream? Can you view the first two streams in VLC? Can you view the third stream in BlueIris? (Sorry, it was someone else's comment about BI. I don't think you are using BI). Can you view the third stream in your NVR?

Device Type IPC-HDBW3441F-AS-M
System Version V2.800.0000000.30.R, Build Date: 2021-08-20

Which is the same chipset and sensor as your IPC.
Streaming to VLC fine.

Dont have the firwmare file sorry. But really dont think it's going to make a difference.,...

Never an issue as long as it is H.264 and not H.264B or the other one I forget.
