There are different ways for a client to receive a multicast stream:
There is no difference in data amount if streaming is checked or not as long as there is at least one multicast client connected to this multicast group.
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.
The following string triggers the connection to be multicast stream using the multicast IP and port that were predefined in the configuration before.
If you want to get the multicast stream on a specific IP and port (e.g. IP 126.96.36.199, port 1234) you can use following syntax:
The SDP file should look like this:
v=0 o=- 0 0 IN IP4 <ipaddress> s=LIVE VIEW t=0 0 m=video 60010 RTP/AVP 35 c=IN IP4 188.8.131.52 a=rtpmap:35 H264/90000
