[MMM-RTSPStream] - Video Streaming from Live Feeds & Security Cameras
module still works for me using vlc at my rpi3b.I just need to find a way to restart the stream cause sometimes stream stops and need to manually press “pause” wait some seconds ,and press play again to start stream.Any ideas?Can i use pm2 somehow when this is happening?
@costascontis would you be willing to help get my RTSPStream up and running? Been trying for some time now but keep hitting walls.
@KumarTRD I’d highly recommend using a different module if possible.

@KumarTRD go for MMM-FreeboxTV.
It does everything you need.
@Cr4z33 how would it solve the rtsp stream. Do you have an example?

@goprojojo well let’s say that MMM-FreeboxTV is currently developed and therefore supported by its developer (@Bugsounet).
So once you are sure you are using a 100% bugs free up to date module you can start testing your RTSP stream and eventually ask for help.
All, I just wanted to check in and apologize for not only lack of support for this module but lack of response on here and on GitHub.
Thank you for those who have been continuously trying to get others’ setups working. You are showing the true value of this community.
I feel I at least owe a bit of an update, since I’ve been utterly frustrated before by developers who disappear without a trace, but officially: I am not planning on actively supporting this module any further.
The underlying software for the OMXPlayer and VLC overlays are not under my control, and in several years of searching I have not found a “smooth” or “robust” way of maintaining a low-resource-demand RTSP Stream without significant lag, and I was a bit overwhelmed trying to make a one-size-fits-all module that worked for everything. I actually have only used the stills/snapshot feature of this module on my own mirror for the last year and a half, and found myself never using the live stream, that functionality has been delegated to my Home Assistant setups, which have people much better than me working on the Stream components.
Both of my mirrors are also presently in pieces as part of a home move that is going terribly and coupled with a COVID-19-impacted work schedule (now working 2/3s of my days away from home), I will not have time to make any improvements to this module in the foreseeable future.
I’m sorry to have to make this decision and will try and accept any Pull Requests outstanding and clean up the dev/master branches to be consistent. If there is someone willing to take over developing, I can transfer the repo to your fork.
For those who have been continually helping to get streaming working for everyone on here, again, thank you, you are helping drive what this community is about (and helping me by knowing the countless hours put into this module have at least helped a few others).
@shbatm Thanks for updating us on what’s going on.
@BKeyport what module would you suggest using? I have a Lorex NVR system and this is the last module that i NEED/WANT to complete my build.
