Wyze Cam RTSP 2019 – View It On Your Computer

November 13, 2019

So among all the other features this feature by far is the most anticipated requested looked forward to feature update that wise has ever brought out ever Hey guys, welcome back to the gross tech show My name is Josh where we talk about home technology And I just want to preface just to let you guys know at the end of the video. There is a free gift which Kind of is redundant a free gift if it’s anyways, it’s at the end of the video Make sure you watch to the end to get that gift. I just want to thank you guys so much so in the last update Weis pushed a lot of really cool features and the biggest one that’s most anticipated is RTSP real-time streaming protocol now what that really means in layman’s terms in just in English really is That your live feed from your cameras are now able to be seen With a URL so you can integrate this into your security Cameras that you already have you can now view this on your desktop. You can now stream it to say your chromecast those kind of features are now available with RTSP so unfortunately, the RTSP feature is not as simple as just flicking a button in the app And it’s enabled and you’re good go it takes a couple steps So what I did is down in the description, I listed out step by step everything that you need to do So if you like that kind of format, it’s there But I want to show you guys step by step how you can enable it get it started and then be able to use it to view it from your computer or Be able to stream it to your chromecast or your Google Home Hub or a smart display So let’s jump into the computer. Whai jump into what where did that come from? Because you know, I’m not gonna jump anyways, let’s get to the desktop go to wise Comm or the link down in the description below will also take you there hit support And then click on wise km v1 v2 and pan and then over in other topics You’ll see the wise km RTSP Here we want to go to how to set it up And the first number one is download the RTSP file So depending on whether you use version two or the pan Download the correct Link here. We’ve got a version two. We will go to the desktop save And one is that once that is download opened it up and we want to extract oops Extract this file the only file in there if you’re on a Mac there is your file and we’re I’m gonna just extract it straight into the MicroSD card So it will extract it and copy it there close that then what we’re gonna need to do is we’re gonna need to rename this file to just say Demo dot bin so we delete everything else. It’s just de mo dot bin once you’re done with that Go ahead and close it and you can take out your card so once you have the micro SD card all put the file on and everything go ahead and put it into your wise game and then before you plug it in go ahead and hold down the setup button and plug it in and what you’re looking for is on the back you want that light to be a solid blue kind of like a blue green tint of A light and that’s what you need to do to be able to get the software in firmware Installed on the camera it will take some time It will shut off turn back on it’ll go through about four minutes of just sitting there Just wait until it shows back up in your app. Alright, once your camera shows back up and is viewable in your app You just have to go to the settings of that camera go down to advanced settings down at the bottom You’ll see RTSP click on it. And then there is a switch go ahead and turn it on and then it will ask you to generate a Username and password now this username and password is specific to just this camera So you have to do this for each specific camera that you want to do But just make a username and a password hit save generate and it will generate a little URL code so all you need to do is copy that right Something and then we’re gonna take that back to the desktop. So let’s go so now that you have that link or that URL go ahead and let’s show what it does if you open up a browser and You paste that link in there. It does nothing. You can’t just view it on your browser So you have to go through something to be able to use it and what I use and what I recommend to use is called VLC, it’s a media player link is down the description below it just plays like Windows Media Player or iMovie Then go ahead and go to media and open network stream here. You’ll paste that in and hit play And as you see there’s my front door that’s my front We can View it you can save this to where you can just double click on it and be able to view it on your desktop or the cool things since It’s not really why is is it out? Yet with the update to be able to view these things on say your Google home hub or your chromecast you can actually cast it from VLC to those new devices. So what you want to do is you want to go to playback render ear and then there should be all your devices that you have on your network and I can put it on the bedroom display and Then it shows up on the bedroom display Which is my Google Home Hub. So as you saw it’s not really difficult to set up It just takes a couple steps and if you screw up then you kind of have to start all over again but if you follow these directions It’s it’s simple and easy to be able to use you can view it on your desktop Like my wife does to be able to watch the kids nursery camera when she’s working on the computer or be able to stream it to your Chromecast or your GUP your smart display or Smart Hub? You can do a lot of things with this and like I said You can integrate it with your security system that you already have and it’s really amazing that they’ve opened this up to us And I’m so happy that they did but I just want to let you guys know you’re free gifts that I promise you is Right here. I Know it’s not clickable, but the link is down into the description below It is a guide a home automation 101 guided home automation for dummies kind of guide that I want to be able to give you guys just a Simple gift really but something that gives you information on what is home automation Why would you even care about it how you can use it and all that stuff? So please the link is down in the description Below go ahead and sign up and get the email with the attachment and I just want to say thank you again for all The views and comments and likes and everything But my name is Josh gross. This has been the gross tech show God bless you guys. I’ll see you in the next one. Bye

    Will that one SD card file work on all my camera's and then put back in the SD card that I had in it prior to the demo.bin? OR does the camera have to have the demo.bin file in it at all times?

  • Reply Gregory Havenga May 29, 2019 at 4:07 am

    I was getting ready to do this, and then read this (just above the download link):

    Will RTSP continue to be developed?

    We don't have the resources to keep developing two branches of firmware for Wyze Cam v2 and Wyze Cam Pan. This means that the RTSP branch will be upgraded infrequently. Using the RTSP firmware will prevent the camera from supporting any future functionality additions, such as A.I. for Human/Animal/Vehicle recognition, event video tagging, further stability improvements, and bug fixes.

    The currently available firmware is an updated beta version. This contains improvements over the prior version, but still has potential to include minor stability issues. Once we're in a position where we can confidently say that any present issues have been fixed, we'll push out a release version of the firmware.

  • Reply Bart Thomas May 29, 2019 at 4:48 am

    I can't get the RSTP firmware to flash correctly. I have the v2 cam and hold the setup button and then connect USB and continue to hold button but always hear Ready To Connect and get a flashing yellow light. Any tips?

  • Reply Pablo Chiabrera May 31, 2019 at 12:43 am

    Good video and something we all needed.
    I did the firware update in my Wyze cam Pan and everything worked fine. The only thing I see that is not very functional is the fact that I must be on the same WiFi network to work. The good thing would be to be able to see my camera outside the house on the office computer, something that still can not be. (apologies for my english)

    You’re braver than me. There is no way I’m ever putting a camera in my bedroom! 🤣

  • Reply jsm136 May 31, 2019 at 5:11 pm

    I have been using the Wyze cam app on Bluestack android emulator on my PC with no problems, and is a lot easier and have all the functions of the Wyze app.

  • Reply opqrst7 June 7, 2019 at 5:27 pm

    It does not open (unzip) the downloaded file in Mac. Is there a way to make it work on a Mac?

  • Reply JERRY JAMES June 8, 2019 at 2:18 am

    Good video. good information. I have X10 Home Automation currently so I have been slow to incorporate WYZE products because my current automation is a Windows products. I have been waiting for a Windows OS program to be written and I am not good enough to write one myself so, since my current investments in my 'working'" home automation system is something I really am reluctant to abandon; I have been slow to even think about trying to incorporate any WYZE products. Seeing this video has convinced me of a possible way to do so by possibly using an older iPhone

    But you can’t update your firmware once you get it. Lame

  • Reply Daniel Raidt July 14, 2019 at 11:33 pm

    About time, Thanks for the video, This solves my problem, I have 5 cams and you can have more then one instance of VLC open on a PC, So my little used desk top has all of my cameras showing at one time all resized to fit on the monitor. So a little work was involved no big deal, one happy camper here. BTW Blue stacks is a memory hog and does not live up to the reviews here

  • Reply calvinstulip July 15, 2019 at 8:22 pm

    NEVER got the RTSP feature to appear / manifest on the app. My Wyze cam never gets to the "solid" light blue that is described in the installation process – goes straight to yellow & then blinking yellow, saying "ready to connect!" So stupid.

  • Reply Rocky Vachon July 16, 2019 at 6:31 pm

    Might not be a complete solution, but I use Bluestacks, which is a free Android emulator, and then run the Wyze Cam app in it on my desktop.

  • Reply Mowcowbell July 18, 2019 at 12:10 pm

    It might be worth a try, but with multiple outdoor cameras, and knowing I would be locked into this BETA version with no chance of future updates, I think I'll pass.

    Totally sucks that it's "beta" and that you can't go back and forth easily. My main reason for wanting RTSP is in case Wyze goes under, which will likely happen one day if they're not scooped up by someone big.

  • Reply Brian Ferguson July 23, 2019 at 6:58 pm

    What a pain in the balls. Bluestacks and the app is much easier as noted by others.

    Something to note: "Using the RTSP firmware will prevent the camera from supporting any future functions or features in the Wyze App".

  • Reply NitroExpress July 31, 2019 at 3:01 pm

    be aware that many Android emulators have been found to be infected with malware and/or data mining software. check Amazon's customer complaints on this Wyze camera and you'll see the stories. one even heard the camera talking to his child in the dead of night. scary. also check Wyze"s own forum for the scoop on Android emulators. it's a jungle out there and the Chinese are copying and hacking everything.

    I'm trying to download the firmware and it keeps on downloading a blank .bin file with absolutely no content and unable to open it at all, because my two computers don't have a program for .bin files (windows 10 and 8).

    I've seen videos of the file being a zip file but not in my case.

  • Reply John Mathewson August 4, 2019 at 5:09 pm

    Am I mistaken here, but the wyze app let's me see real time camera views. I installed 4 cameras on my property did all the up dates including the one that reconizies people. I click on the wyze app and can choose any real time view. Is this RSTP?

  • Reply alton Davis August 6, 2019 at 3:25 am

    they just released update to "HUMAN RECOGNITION" to reduce number of false messages due to other things moving in front of camera such as cats or dogs… downloadable for you and your cam. it is added to cams being shipped now.

    Great video. Wished it was just made into the regular firmware as that's a lot of work and then not support any new features. I did find out that I can view my wyze cam with a Fire TV and just ask Alexa to play the video. Much easier if all you want to do is view on the TV.
