Solution

1.  There are three transmitting ways for camera RTSP streaming.

    RTSP over TCP

    RTSP over UDP

    RTSP over HTTP

 

2.  To simulate different protocol setting, we need to launch VLC Player and change Protocol setting from the link shown below.

    Tools->Perferences->All->Input/Codecs->Demuxers->RTP/RTSP

 

3.  To simulate RTSP over TCP: Only enable "Use RTP over RTSP (TCP)". And click on "Save". Restart VLC Player application in order to make sure settings confirmed and changed.

 

4.  To simulate RTSP over UDP: Disable all items. And click on "Save". Restart VLC Player application in order to make sure settings confirmed and changed.

 

5.  To simulate RTSP over HTTP: Enable both "Use RTP over RTSP (TCP)" and "Tunnel RTSP and RTP over HTTP". Besides, correct HTTP port number is also required. And click on "Save". Restart VLC Player application in order to make sure settings confirmed and changed.

 

6.  Launch again the VLC Player application. Go to "Media" - "Open Network Stream". Fill in the camera RTSP streaming URL into the field. Before starting the connection, you also need to change "Caching" size to 200 ms (1000 ms by VLC Player default) to simulate our NVR behavior.
