    How to use RTSP and multicast streaming

    The Solution:

    Below you find a way how to pass a special connection string to request a multicast stream via RTSP from a BOSCH IP camera or IP encoder:
    rtsp://192.168.0.1/&multicast_video=1
    The above string triggers the connection to be multicast stream using the multicast IP and port that were predefined in the configuration before.
    (see device webpage --> Settings --> Network --> Multicasting)

    If you want to get the multicast stream on a specific IP and port (e.g. IP 226.1.2.3, port 1234) you can use following syntax:
    rtsp://192.168.0.1/&multicast_video=1&mc_group_video=226.1.2.3&mc_port_video=1234

    You can also use the RTSP SETUP command to enable multicast streaming.
    Note: Forwarding the RTSP port using RTSP SETUP command is supported with firmware 5.50 and later.
