How to add a camera as RTSP

Adding a camera as RTSP (Real Time Streaming Protocol) directly pulls a stream from the camera, allowing for non-onvif cameras to be added to the Apex server. RTSP also allows for better control of multi-lens cameras by allowing the selection of a specific channel and profile.

To add a camera as RTSP:

1.       Log in to the recorder.

2.       Click the gear icon at the top right to enter Setup
