    I got a IP camera model dahua PC-HDW4431C-A but should work with any camera that supports RTSP.

    This a guide how to add the feed to an Enigma2 device. I will be adding the stream to the Favourites Bouquets, but you can add it to whatever bouquet you want.

    1. first of all find the RTSP port that your IP camera uses. On Dahua cameras go to network connection.
    [​IMG]
    The RTSP port my camera uses is 554.

    2. test the RTSP stream. Open VLC player. Media>Open Network Stream...
    enter the line below replacing username, password, ipcameraIP and RTSP-PORT with your own..

    rtsp://username:Password@cameraIP:RTSP-PORT/cam/realmonitor?channel=1&subtype=1​

    you can also just enter rtsp://cameraIP and it will ask you for your camera credentials if you have default RTSP settings.

    here is my line
    rtsp://admin:cctvpassword@192.168.0.10:554/cam/realmonitor?channel=1&subtype=1
    now if the stream doesnt work go back and confirm you entered everything correctly and try another stream. i was unable to get the main stream 0 to work. i could only get the secondary stream to work.

    URL Syntax

    rtsp://ID:PASS@IP:RTSP/cam/realmonitor?channel=&subtype=*

    ID: a valid user?s username.
    PASS:user?s password. (Cannot contain #)
    IP:the IP address of the IP Camera.
    RTSP:the default port is 554. It can be omitted.
    &:the channel number. It starts from 1.
    *:the stream type. The of main stream is 0, extra stream 1 is 1, extra stream 2 is 2.

    if you can view the live stream then continue to the next step.


    3.NOTE: I will be adding the stream to the Favourites Bouquets, but you can add it to whatever bouquet you want.

    ftp into your enigma2 device and go to /etc/enigma2. find and open the file

    userbouquet.favourites.tv
    4. Now add your camera's RTSP stream like below to the "userbouquet.favourites.tv" file, again replacing username, password, ipcameraIP and RTSP-port with your own.. This time you also have to replace any colon “:” in the RTSP link you used in VLC player with %3a

    Heres an example

    Code:
    #SERVICE 4097:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:rtsp%3a//username%3apassword@cameraIP%3aRTSP-PORT/cam/realmonitor?channel=1&subtype=1
    #DESCRIPTION IPCAM

    My link:

    #SERVICE 4097:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:rtsp%3a//admin%3apassword@192.168.0.10%3a554/cam/realmonitor?channel=1&subtype=1
    #DESCRIPTION Secondary IPCAM

    5. Reboot enigma on your device.
    You can do this via CLI with the command below or via the GUI
    Code:
    killall -9 enigma2
    6. Watch the live feed.
    [​IMG]
    Please note you will not be able to record, Pan, tilt or zoom and i am only able to get the secondary stream working. I cannot get the main HD stream with audio working. If I do I will add to the guide.

    I can confirm this will work remotely if you open the RTSP port and configure a DDNS such as NO-IP

    also i can view the main channel now. using the code below
    #SERVICE 4097:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:rtsp%3a//admin%3apassword0@192.168.0.110%3a554/cam/realmonitor?channel=1&subtype=0:

    you can see all you have to do is change the subtype to 0.
