The last output actually looks good.
Processes are there.
Do they remain present after a few minutes, with same PID’s ?
Can you try this again using quotes around the --win parameter ?
$ /usr/bin/omxplayer --avdict rtsp_transport:tcp --live --video_queue 4 --fps 30 --win '351 968 703 1210' rtsp://192.168.178.1:554/?avm=1&freq=394&bw=8&msys=dvbc&mtype=256qam&sr=6900&specinv=0&pids=0,16,17,18,20,266,593,594,595,598,1801,1802,1803
It can be that a mpeg2 license is necessary.
I know that for satellite TS streams it is.
When you stream it via VLC Player, you can see under Media Information - Codec Details what codec is being used.
not sure if i can check this correctly with the processes but if i run the test file (Big Bunny) it runs for minutes…
tried it with quotes around the win parameter:
pi@raspberrypi:~ $ $ /usr/bin/omxplayer --avdict rtsp_transport:tcp --live --video_queue 4 --fps 30 --win '351 968 703 1210' rtsp://192.168.178.1:554/?avm=1&freq=394&bw=8&msys=dvbc&mtype=256qam&sr=6900&specinv=0&pids=0,16,17,18,20,266,593,594,595,598,1801,1802,1803  1563  1564  1565 bash: $: Kommando nicht gefunden.  1566  1567  1568  1569  Exit 127 $ /usr/bin/omxplayer --avdict rtsp_transport:tcp --live --video_queue 4 --fps 30 --win '351 968 703 1210' rtsp://192.168.178.1:554/?avm=1  Fertig freq=394  Fertig msys=dvbc  Fertig mtype=256qam - Fertig sr=6900
I am also going to check it out with the license as VLC is showing MPEG 1/2 (mpgv) as codec…

MPG2 license is enabled now.
There is a difference now as the grey box from RTSP Stream module contains a Pause symbol (autostart is enabled) when moving the mouse over it…and becomes a play button when i click on it.
I have also adapted the frame rate and size towards the parameters shown in the VLC player detail window.
Any other idea what i could try…?

You have to remove the second $ in the command.
This $ in my examples is just to say to run it from the the command line.
You try to add
--genlogafter the omxplayer command, like
omxplayer --genlog --avdict rtsp_transport:tcp ............
Then check the
omxplayer.log, normally located under the directory where you started the command.
Or find it using
sudo find . -name omxplayer.log.
Just a disclaimer.
I do not use this module any more for my stream (a webcam using h.265).
See first post on this page:
I could try to set it up again for a sat stream.
Thanks and i entered the command in the right way again:
pi@raspberrypi:~ $ /usr/bin/omxplayer --genlog --avdict rtsp_transport:tcp --live --video_queue 4 --fps 30 --win '351 968 703 1210' rtsp://192.168.178.1:554/?avm=1&freq=394&bw=8&msys=dvbc&mtype=256qam&sr=6900&specinv=0&pids=0,16,17,18,20,266,593,594,595,598,1801,1802,1803  27791  27792  27793  27794  27795  27796  27797  Fertig bw=8  Fertig msys=dvbc

@evroom Thanks a lot for your support especially as you are not using the module actually anymore…
Am i right that the RTSPStream module is the best option/only one i could use for my case?
I think I have the same issue as you:
It would be the best option, if it would work.
As a workaround for my IP cam issue, I use omxplayer as a separate process.
It is an overlay on top of your screen anyway.
For you, it is first priority to get your stream using omxplayer working, outside of MM
So disable the module and restart MM.
module: "MMM-RTSPStream", disabled: true, : :
Then we take it from there.
Can you confirm that your stream is MPEG-4 (vlc player media information) ?
yes, that would be great having the module just working
Picture looks same as on mine…
Module is disabled.
Just checked again in VLC.
Codec: MPEG-1/2 Video (mpgv)
