  • Replace XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX:port with the IP Address and port, ie:
  • For the source, use either “videoSub” or “videoMain” to select the sub or main stream
  • Runs smoothly on a RaspberryPi 2 Model B or RaspberryPi 3 Model B+, with the MPEG-omx codec enabled
  • Without the “-rtsp_transport tcp”, the live feed stutters, so make sure it’s added
