Supported Cameras

The Xanview Timeline supports any camera that is either ONVIF compliant or has either an RTSP or an HTTP stream. This means upward of 99.9% of cameras on the market.

Many cameras are detected automatically, others can be added by finding the primary and secondary RTSP path in the manual. If this is not available, you may need to ask the manufacturer of the camera for this.

Automatically Detected Cameras

Any ONVIF camera or camera that has an RTSP stream on port 554 or 7070 will be automatically detected by Xanview and added to your Cameras page. You can always find your cameras in the Admin section.

Adding Cameras Manually

Any cameras that were not auto detected for any reason, for example cameras with HTTP streams or cameras on a different network, can be added manually by clicking on Add Camera on your Cameras page.

Please try opening the RTSP URLs provided in the manual or by the manufacturer directly in a video player such as VLC. This will allow you to confirm that the camera is indeed working as expected. Please get your camera playing with a player like VLC before trying to add it manually to your Timeline.
