  2. Select protocol from the drop-down list. (i.e., rtsp or http)

  3. Provide the media URL you want to stream. ( e.g., use only server_name/file_path instead of the complete URL rtsp://server_name/file_path)

  4. Set the Buffer rate.

  5. Provide user credentials that have access to the file.

  6. Select the Scaling option. (default: Zoom full-screen)

  7. Change Audio settings as per the requirement.

  8. Click "OK" to complete the process.


Note: To get the correct URL of your stream, please consult the vendor's manual.
