Streaming IP Cam Video

I have an IP Cam (Trendnet IP312W) and I'm having trouble accessing the 3gp feed outside of my LAN. I'm able to view the feed if I type in this URL into the browser: rtsp://internal.ip.of.cam/3gp

When I do this, it opens up in the Streaming Media app and plays just fine. However, if I try and use my exernal IP it times out and does not connect. The kicker may be the port. Externally I'm trying to connect like this: rtsp://external.ip.address:85/3gp

This isn't working and I suspect it may have to do with the non-default port. I might try changing my router settings to redirct default port 80 to the net cam but I'd rather not do this as I have other things on port 80.

Thoughts? Are there other/better rtsp apps out there I could try?

Thanks!

Re: Streaming IP Cam Video

You could try CorePlayer, or it's free cousin TCPMP. I use TVersity to stream some videos from my PC to my phone and it's able to take a port as an argument.

Re: Streaming IP Cam Video

It also may be due to an activex control or some sort of applet being loaded to view the feed. I have some linksys IP cams in which I cannot access from my phone due to an activex control not loading in the phones browser.

Try this,
Use a laptop or another PC not connected to your network locally, but sharing the phones data connection. Using any number of the available solutions on this site.
Try to connect to the IP cam from a "regular" web browser.

Also try setting the Trendnets stream port to another port. I can change mine to whatever I would like on linksys. Then port forward to anything. I use 1001 for cam1 and 1002 for cam2.

So if your cam is on 192.168.1.115 Port 85 local, and your ext IP is 176.17.1.124
then port forward anything coming in on port 1001 to 192.168.1.115 port 85.

Hope this helps. I've been there, and finally wound up hacking "coding" the cam itself to give series of images to simulate video stream. actually works better.

Re: Streaming IP Cam Video

I figured it out! Silly me, I assumed that the RTSP port number was the same as the HTTP port number. Turns out, the IE, activex web site is on port 80 as you'd expect, but the RTSP stream is on port 554. So, all I had to do was go into my router and forward port 554 to my IP cam. Now, I can simply browse to this URL on my TP2 in Opera: rtsp://(dyndnsname)/3gp

The streaming media app then opens up and the video and audio stream seems to work great!

For my next trick, I'll see if I can get the MPEG4 stream to work, but for now I'm perfectly happy since we're leaving our 4 month old with a babysitter for the first time this weekend so we'll be able to keep our eye on things!

Re: Streaming IP Cam Video

Just out of curiosity, what brand of IP Camera are you using? I'm having a baby pretty soon too and love the idea of a "nannycam".
