How do I get my webcam's RTSP/RTMP URL for streaming?

Q: Where can I find the webcam RTSP/RTMP URL to connect to Wowza?

A: This is provided in your specific camera documentation and will vary depending on the type of camera.

IP camera manufacturers use proprietary URL syntax. Consult your camera documentation for the URL syntax of the stream and enter this value in Stream URI.


You will have to enter this information correctly when you add a Stream File. We do provide a full video tutorial on how to set this up.
