Not able to access Meraki MV21 - Direct Streaming

Hi team,

 

Kindly informed that i have nine MV21 cameras in the same network. Two of them are showing as direct streaming and the rest seven are showing as cloud. We need all these cameras on direct LAN streaming. please advise, what could be the issue that only two cameras are on Direct LAN and remaining on the cloud. Your quick support will be highly appreciated. Thanks

We had a similar issue to this 6-8 weeks ago. You might try to reset the camera.

 

To reset an MV security camera to the factory defaults, press the button located next to the Ethernet port of the camera for 5 seconds. Please be aware that after resetting the unit, the device will need to download its latest configuration from Dashboard. Please be patient as this could take up to 5 - 10 minutes. 

 If that doesn't work out for you, support has always been happy to assist us.

Kind of a big deal

All of the cameras have the same IP gateway, subnet etc...?

Hi,

 

Yes same for all nine cameras. Only two cameras are ok with direct stream but remaining seven cameras are through cloud. I already did to remove these seven cameras from network and rejoin these again. Lot of times rebooted but still through cloud.

Kind of a big deal

Re: Not able to access Meraki MV21 - Direct Streaming

On the computer that you are opening to view the feeds, can it ping each of the cameras?

Yes, from the PC where i am using the dashboard, it can be ping to all nine cameras to their local LAN IP.

If i reset the camera, can this solve our issue to be working through direct LAN?

Re: Not able to access Meraki MV21 - Direct Streaming

Try using the Network console in Chrome dev tools to see what's happening when you try to access one of the broken cameras. You should be able to see Chrome trying to access the camera directly via an <ip address>.devices.meraki.direct domain which should give a 200 response if it's working.

Hello FaisalM

 

Did you ever manage to get a direct stream? I had the same issue these days and I found out, that it may depend on the browser-type and browser-settings you use. In my case, I had to use chrome browser. With Firefox, I was not lucky. It's well possible, that my firefox-browser has got misconfigured over time.

 

Good luck,

Ami
