View Full Version : vlc-qt: rtsp stream with authentication required

3rd August 2015, 17:54
I am using vlc-qt to get the video stream from a camera protected by authentication.

Doing a test with cameras unauthenticated the code works fine and the video stream is displayed correctly.

In those that require authentication instead, specifying the url as:

rtsp: // username: password@ipaddress/p1.mp4

authentication will not be accepted.

Did I forget something or is there some other method to authenticate?

What does your camera manual have to say?

If the URL you are passing has spaces (as you have posted here), then that isn't legal URI syntax.
