Cam Widget RTSP support


I use many Foscam 9900p cameras in my home. These ones do not support mjpg video stream only RTSP is supported. It would be great to implement RTSP for the live video popup. Until now I receive only video not supported.

I know it’s maybe not the best solution but I’m using motioneyeos to convert my fowcam and all my rtsp steams into MPEG and it works fine also with ki e streams in the app

RTSP support is added for the next release.

Incredible thanks a lot Igor.

Hi Igor,

I have tried the new beta 19 this morning. But the video shows still video format error. I use the RTSP stream from an Foscam 9900p camera.

There is always a possibility of Android version not supporting particular video codec. What is the Android version on that device? Also, if you have VLC or similar streaming software, can you check what is the video codec on that stream?


below the info from MPC:

Video: NV12 2048x1080 (16:9) 15.167fps

majortype: MEDIATYPE_Video {73646976-0000-0010-8000-00AA00389B71}

VLC info:


Same for me.

@rene54321/@Brian_Jefferys there is a bug in current version that you need select Live in snapshot interval property for RTSP stream to work. Otherwise, the widget tries to generate 10 second snapshots from the video stream, which is not possible with RTSP.
That maybe the reason the stream didn’t work in your case.

I have it set to live.

HI Guys,

I have a general error with RSTP. I hoped today release will fix the problem but it did not. I still get the same Connectin…than Video Format Error on the Camera Widget.

Cameras are set up on Home Assistant:

Snapshot interval is Live.

Any ideas?

Hi Igor,

for my Foscam 9900P the RTSP widget is still not working. I get “Video format error”.

best regards René

Hi guys, same here.
