I have recently completed a Zoneminder surveillance system installation at a remote location. The dedicated server is running Ubuntu 14.04 LTS and is currently connected to 4 IP Cameras (Hikvision DS-2CD2032-I) on the same subnet. The router is a Motorola Surf Board SBG6580-G228.
Now, I’m attempting to setup a Raspberry Pi to stream video from a camera at the remote location. My goal is to use Zoneminder for recording events and use the Raspberry Pi as a viewer for the primary camera. This is where I’m running into trouble. I can connect to Zoneminder and the Camera’s web-based management pages remotely, but for some reason I can’t view the camera’s RTSP stream.
I have port 554 open and forwarded to the camera I want to connect to. When I enter the RTSP address in VLC without the login credentials, I am prompted for them, so I know it is connecting on some level. However, once I enter the credentials, I receive no error, but also no video. I know the camera is working, because I can log into Zoneminder and see it.
Does anyone have any idea what I could be missing?
