This is an update to my post detailing my experience with the WWW-RTSPStream module. My implementation of the module in my MM2 was working OK, but I still had some interruptions when the video stream I was displaying would go black. Things got worse when I introduced a new WiFi router to improve coverage in my home. I had been depending on my OEM Uverse modem/router. I disabled the modem’s WiFi and added a Netgear RAX70 router to handle the WiFi duties in my home. For reasons beyond my understanding, this caused my MMM-RTSPStream module to be less stable. So, I decided to try a new IP camera. I chose a Wansview 1080 outdoor wireless IP camera that emphasized its use of the RTSP protocol. It’s this one:
At only $40 I wasn’t really expecting much, but I was pleasantly surprised. Their installation process was about as simple as it gets and the RTSP URLs they supply in their app were easy to copy/paste into the MMM-RTSPStream config.sys section of the MM2. I’ve had it up and running for 2 days now and haven’t had any down time. For the first time, I can actually depend on the MMM-RTSPStream module to show me a video stream that’s current. For what it’s worth, I’ve pasted my config.sys section for the MMM-RTSPStream below.
