MV Camera viewing natively in windows

Hello Everyone,

 

I've come across many threads about some issues to view footage live from the MV series. I myself have looked into many viewers because the cloud view option locks up sometimes in browser.

 

I've looked at the following options...

-Local vlan with linux/windows viewing footage on the same V-Lan

-Cross V-lan with Linux/Windows viewing footage.

-RTSP Viewers open source Linux/Windows

-IP Cam viewing software (Generic Software) 

-Meraki Vision Portal

-Meraki Video Wall

-VLC with Mosaic view Linux/Windows

-Chrome/Firefox/Safari/Edge/Chromium 

 

And many combinations in between.

 

I wonder if this would be an option from microsoft and would like to see what everyone's opinion on this would be.

@PhilipDAth I Apologize for the late response on this.

 

So i was trying to setup a live view on the local subnet for camera viewing. The overall issues is there is a 10 second delay when viewing cameras. Its so odd. But i ended up solving with a RTSP stream from each camera to a web server and i get zero to no latency now what so ever. But even the Meraki Vision Portal has latency on live camera feeds.

@BlakeRichardson yes it is a huge improvement. But still have the delay with it. I know Meraki will eventually get it working without the latency on the live camera view but we needed a zero latency solution. ill post the full workup i did to resolve my issue below.

Re: MV Camera viewing natively in windows

@jetaylorwhat kind of cameras are you using? The 2nd generation (MVx2) are supporting low-latency HLS (LHLS) with firmware 4.8 or higher. The delay here is normally about 2 seconds instead of 10.
