1 INTRODUCTION
1.1 Purpose
This document demonstrates how to view Etrovision IP camera’s video streams
using a 3G phone. The information is specific to the EV8x8x camera series (e.g.
EV8180). Please note that this does not include the EV8150A (EV8x5x series).
For the EV8x5x, EV6x5x, and EV3x5x product series, please refer to the
“Streaming Video to a 3G Phone” document for the EV8x5x, EV6x5x, and EV3x5x
product series.
1.2 Supported Mobile Operating Systems
Supported Mobile OS include:
•
•
•
•
Symbian S60
Windows Mobile
iOS
Android
1.3 Mobile Phone Requirements
The mobile phone has a built-in streaming media player.
The mobile device and streaming media player support MPEG4.
The mobile phone and media player both support RTSP protocol.

2 CONFIGURATION
2.1 Network Configuration
Mobile phones will access the IP camera using RTSP (Real Time Streaming
Protocol). Therefore, it is important that network routers and firewalls are
configured to allow mobile phones access to IP cameras.
Port forwarding will likely need to be implemented on routers to allow access.
The following diagram illustrates how port forwarding is used to provide mobile
phones (and other clients) the ability to access streaming video from IP cameras.
The default port for RTSP is 554. However, each camera in the same subnet will
require its own port number.
In the above example, two IP cameras are on a subnet using the same router. The
router has a public IP address, and both cameras are accessed from the public
network via the router’s public IP address. Therefore, separate port numbers
must be specified for each IP camera to differentiate the two. Here one camera
has been configured with port 554, and another is using port 555.
Routers will need to be configured with port forwarding for tcp port 554 (the
default port for RTSP) and any other ports for additional IP cameras.
NOTE: If the default port (554) will not be used, verify the mobile phone’s media
player can support using a port number other than 554.

2.2 IP Camera Configuration
Stream Profile Configuration
NOTE: Please refer to firmware user manual for additional information on
camera settings and configuration.
The EV8x8x camera line streams video in RTSP. While the camera can stream
multiple independent streams, by default the camera is only configured with one
video stream (Profile 1).
Because Profile 1 only streams in HD, using Profile 1 for mobile streaming isn’t
practical. Therefore, other streams using lower resolution (e.g. QVGA) need to be
enabled which are suitable for mobile networks.
Login to the IP camera’s web interface and go to the Setup page.
In the Setup page, select Video & Audio -> Video Setting.
Choose one of the multiple streaming options (Profile Setting) and click SAVE. In
the above example, 4 profiles are selected. Under Video Quality Setting,
additional configuration settings for each profile are available.
Those streaming profiles which will be used for mobile access should be
configured to accommodate streaming over mobile networks.
Stream Setting Configuration
By default, the RTSP video is accessed using a default access name and RTSP port,
rtpvideo and 554 respectively. The Network -> Stream Setting page allows
modifying these settings.
3
NOTE: Using a non-default RTSP port requires specifying the port when
accessing the camera using an RTSP URL.
The Access Name is included in the RTSP URL, and can be modified if desired.
The default Access Name is rtpvideo. Each stream profile is accessed using the
access name followed by the profile number: rtpvideo1.sdp, rtpvideo2.sdp, …
rtpvideo4.sdp.

3 ACCESSING THE VIDEO
After configuration is complete, mobile phones should be able to access the IP
camera’s video stream. The URL format for accessing video is as follows:
rtsp://<IP or URL>/<Access Name><Profile #>.sdp (i.e. rtsp://joeipcamera.com/rtpvideo4.sdp)
If a port other than 554 is being used, then use the following:
rtsp://<IP or URL>:<port #>/<Access Name><Profile #>.sdp (e.g. rtsp://joeipcamera.com:555/rtpvideo2.sdp)
In the mobile phone’s media player, specify the URL. Verify the media player is
configured to use RTSP and MPEG4.

4 EXAMPLE
4.1 Network Port Configuration
The router will need to be configured to forward data to the IP camera. As an
example, the router’s public IP address is 114.32.31.168 and the camera’s internal
IP address is 192.168.0.34.
Using the default RTSP port, 554, the router needs to be configured to forward
any traffic on port 554 to 192.168.0.34:554. Below is an example of a router:

4.2 Configure Stream 2
Profile 2 is configured with QVGA and reduced bit and frame rate to
accommodate mobile network bandwidth limitations.
The default streams settings are used. These would be modified if using a
different Access Name or RTSP port number.
4.3 Stream Video on the Mobile Phone
The example below is using an Android phone with a free streaming application,
Doga which can be found in Android Market. There is also a free streaming
application for iPhone called Streamer which is suitable for testing.
7
Using the video player, the appropriate URL is entered to access the video stream
(the example below is streaming over a wifi network, not a mobile network).

Mobile & WAN: Which iPhone streaming video players are
compatible?
A streaming video player that supports streaming via RTSP is required.
iPhone streaming players that have been tested include:
Streamer - free, but based on previous testing the functionality wasn't very good
IP Vision - IP Vision has some specific setup instructions noted below.
IP Vision Configuration
IP Vision uses the camera's CGI to stream video. When setting up the camera settings, use the
following:
Username: root
Password: enter the password for camera's root user ("pass" by default)
Path: select "none >"
MPEG4 H.264 MJPEG JPEG video path: enter "stream/av_stream.cgi"
Unique solution ID: #1006

There are two means get IP camera video from iPhone:
1.
RTSP Stream: download “Streamer” App. on Apple app store, which can view
the video via RTSP Stream and please reference attached document to setting
rtsp URL.
2.
CGI command: buy in “IP Vision” App. If you using it, then you need key in
some necessary parameters and please refer to following description:
Username: root (default setting)
Password: pass (default setting)
Path: click “none >”, then key in “stream/av_stream.cgi” command in
MPEG4 H.264 MJPEG JPEG video path filed; click “save” button saving it.
The application will play the video as below:
