How to watch live streams with ONVIF clients

                                     1.Introduction


                                     In order to use ONVIF clients the following requirements need to be met:

                                     ►Your computer (or mobile device) and the camera access to the same LAN.

                                     ►Your camera has been successfully set up.

                                     We suggest to keep the firmware up-to-date.


                                     To check the current firmware, run sricam App on your smart phone ,tap Settings in the corresponding camera

                                     column and tap Device update . The firmware version is in the first row.

                                     To update the firmware, tap Settings in the corresponding camera column. Then tap Device Update.

                                     Make sure your app and your camera are in the same LAN in the upgrading duration.


                                     Some ONVIF clients have the capability to automatically detect cameras on the same LAN. But due to you router's

                                     configuration the auto detection cannot be guaranteed. If happened type in the following URL to manually add it:

                                     http://X.X.X.X :5000/onvif/device_service (X.X.X.X is your camera IP)


                                     Current version we provide two ways for you to find your camera's IP address, one is through SricamPC,

                                     another ways is through sricam APP on smart phone.


                                     Of course, you can find the IP address by other ways such as logging into your router's web interface and find

                                     the camera's IP.


                                     Informatively, the following RTSP URLs are used for playing live streams: rtsp://your camera IP:554/onvif1
