Hello everyone, 

 

Thank you for your feedback and sharing multiple ways to stream camera ,as Tapo camera supports RTSP and ONVIF (Profile S) protocol, and here we would like to make a summary of some workaround  to stream  camera on a PC: 

 


1. Stream Camera via RTSP using  third party app like VLC Player or ONVIF software like iSpy, ONVIF Device Manager etc. 

 

  • RTSP is for streaming camera 
  • ONVIF is for controlling or managing the camera, ONVIF software also use RTSP for streaming

How to view Tapo camera on PC through RTSP stream?

 

  • ONVIF Service Port: 2020
  • RTSP Service Port: 554

 

  • RTSP URL : rtsp:// camera IP Address:554/stream1
  • ONVIF URL: http://camera IP Address:2020/onvif/device_service

 

Example:  rtsp://192.168.0.118 :554/stream1 

 

 <  copy and paste the URL and replace the camera IP with your own camera IP address on Tapo APP>

 

 

Some 3rd- party apps shared by forum users

  •  rtsp. me  share by @PuiuSoft
  • VXG Media Player in Chrome browser

 

2. Use an Android Emulator like Blue stack/ LDplayer4 to stream and control camera, here is guide shared by forum user

Stream Tapo Camera on PC through Android Emulator : LDPlay4 vs Bluestack

 

3. Stream Camera through Amazon or Google Smart Displays

Amazon/ Google smart display is required like : Amazon Echo Show, Echo spot, Fire TV  OR Google home hub, TV with built-in Chromecast, etc.

Google: How to connect my Tapo device (smart plug, smart camera, smart lighting) to Google Home

 

4. Stream Camera Remotely on PC 

1) Android Emulator is recommended 

2) through RTSP streaming:

RTSP URL : rtsp:// router WAN(public) IP address:554/stream1

ONVIF URL: http://router WAN(public) IP address:2020/onvif/device_service

  • Note:  if there is any firewall or gateway in front of your router network, you will need to contact ISP to get a real public IP address.

 

If you met some trouble when using the above method, please start a new thread with case details , attach a photo of error, so we could help look into that further.

 

Welcome to share more apps/ ways that you are currently using to stream or control camera, we will keep this thread updated, thank you.

@michaelimanil bluestacks install on W10 may not be straightforward. you pc cpu must have virtualisation capable and enabled at Bios level first - bit tortuous not for a noob

@Robintes  This board is really user unfriendly. when wishing to reply/help a post your reply get posted to the very bottom of the list (here its 80+ replies 5 pages later.  This doesnt encourage helpful responses. replies should go directly under the OP entry like a tree.  Not rocket science
