    Hi All,

    Unfortunately, DLNA support is not being worked on at the moment. 

    In the meantime, I haven't tried it, but there is nice free and open source cross-platform application that might do the job for you. 

    It is called the Universal Media Server

    Please feel free to send us any other comments or questions and have a great rest of your day!

    Thanks for the idea. Very good one. 
    Will do our best to fit it into the roadmap, but it's hard to say then specifically we have it.
    Not sooner than 4.2.

    I see it as an add on to the current video wall licence - it means we can free up hardware and don't have to run a client PC to display static video.

    I am not sure how this works on Milestone, but I am guessing you can create a "DLNA channel" based on a Layout or a "Showreel" and then we can push it to a DLNA screen?

    Hi Norman

     

    Thanks for the update I will have a play around with this. Can you point me in the direction of any documentation of how to grab camera streams out of NX?

    Hi Tim Huskisson,

    Sure thing. 

    1. Access the Nx WebAdmin
      - Right-click on a server and select Server Web Page...
      or
      - Navigate to http://localhost:7001/ in your browser. 
    2. In the Nx WebAdmin navigate to the tab For Developers
      or navigate to http://localhost:7001/static/index.html#/developers
    3. Select API Testing Tool (new)
      or navigate to http://localhost:7001/static/index.html#/developers/api
    4. Head to Video API section by scrolling toward the end of the API. 
      Here you will find the following subsections: 
      - RTSP streaming
      - Direct Download
      - HLS streaming
      - HTTP streaming

    In general RTSP streaming is the most common option, so I'll provide you an example of such URL: 

    rtsp://<server-ip>:<server-port>/<cameraId>

    For example: 

    rtsp://192.168.178.55:7001/959bc020-ff9d-63b3-43da-c099d53a4117

    If you like, you can include the credentials as well in the URL. 

    rtsp://<user>:<password>@<server-ip>:<server-port>/<cameraId>

    There a various other parameters to be included, but you can find these in the server API and apply them if required.
