I don't have a HikVision so I can't suggest what to use other than to try multiple options I have some of my cameras set to Generic ONVIF/RTSP and the RTSP option with /cam/realmonitor?channel={CAMNO}&subtype=1&authbasic={AUTH64} in both the main and substream although subtype=0 on the main line. I also have used some Dahua RTSP settings with that line and some Amcrest RTSP with that as well. I only have one camera I haven't been able to make work with substreams even though the main stream is setup as /cam/realmonitor?channel={CAMNO}&subtype=0&authbasic={AUTH64} and works fine, it just won't work with the substream on that one for some reason.

Hello!

Thanks. I set the camera to Generic ONVIF/RTSP
Both RTSP options are checked on in blue Iris.
I set the main stream to
/cam/realmonitor?channel={CAMNO}&subtype=0&authbasic={AUTH64}
and the sub stream to
/cam/realmonitor?channel={CAMNO}&subtype=1&authbasic={AUTH64}

I still see video, but in the General tab both feeds are streaming at full rez (2.1 Mbsp I believe)

any insight?

What's in that profiles drop down on the camera's substream options?

It's set to "Main Profile", but there is also a "High Profile" in the drop down.

Leave that at "base" or the lowest setting as BI can't talk the manufacturer specific lingo of the Higher stuff.

Does the iSpy site give any clues for your substream address ? http://www.ispyconnect.com/camera/hikvision

What version of BI are you running? Newer version s of BI can now determine the substream path when using the Find/Inspect button.

These are the paths that worked for me:

Hikivision Main Stream
/Streaming/Channels/1

Hikivision Sub Stream
/Streaming/Channels/2

Amcrest Main Stream
/cam/realmonitor?channel=1&subtype=0

Amcrest sub Stream
/cam/realmonitor?channel=1&subtype=1
