Connecting to an RTSP stream
We recommend using VLC, a free and open source multimedia player. It is available on all major operating systems.
Open VLC and make sure that your computer is connected to the same network as your Boulder AI device. From the toolbar, click on 'Media'->'Open Network Stream...'
Enter the URL for the desired RTSP stream and click the play button at the bottom right of the 'Open Media Window'.
Note: if VLC returns an error, try again. Sometimes the stream won't open on the first couple of tries.
The RTSP stream should now populate in the VLC window.
Recording an RTSP Stream
When connected to an RTSP stream, use the toolbar to navigate to 'Playback'->'Record'.
- The first time you select the 'Record' option, the recording will start. There is no indication from VLC that the recording has started.
- The second time you select the 'Record' option, the recording will stop and be saved (by default) to the default 'Videos' folder on your PC.
- VLC doesn't give an indication that the recording has finished. Navigate to your 'Videos' folder to find the recording.
