Manual stream setup and configuration application

To manually add video streams and apply configurations, the following steps are required:

  • All network settings of the camera must be configured

  • The camera must be powered on

Algorithm for manual stream setup and configuration application:

  • Select a media server group

If no media server group is selected, the VMS will automatically choose the least loaded media server

  • Copy the RTSP links for the video streams and paste them into the «Stream address» field on the «Video Streams» tab (refer to «View, add and edit camera data»«Video Streams»)

  • Click «Add»

  • The VMS contacts the Mediaserver

  • The Mediaserver captures the video stream, and the initialization of the video stream takes place

  • The video stream is assigned the status «Unknown»

  • The camera is assigned the status «Initializing»

  • The Mediaserver receives a requery, after which the video streams become active

  • The status of the video stream is changed to «Active»

  • The camera is assigned the status «Active»

If capturing the video stream fails, the status of the stream is changed to «Inactive», and the camera is assigned the status «Inactive».

  • The VMS assigns an ID and UUID to the video stream

  • The camera receives a requery. If there is no profile for this camera in the VMS, the platform retrieves the camera's data, including:

    • MAC address

    • serial_number

    • vendor

    • model

If the vendor and/or model parameters were not obtained, the process is terminated.

  • The camera's data is recorded in the camera profile and NetworkDevice

  • Camera configurations are manually added (see «Configuration» for more details)


Adding camera configurations is possible only after successfully setting up the streams.
