    Hi Yihsuan,

    Virtual cameras usually used to import previously recorded footage to the archive and there is no live stream to access for such cameras. As a result, when you accessing rtsp://<cameraId>, mediaserver fails to find live stream for requested camera.

    1. Get to list of recorded time periods for virtual camera:

    "startTimeMs": "1650802821000"






    2. Open rtsp steam with specifying position parameter:
