Mapping: Creating a RTSP Streamer Source

Mapping allows you to bind a specific display(s) to RTSP Streamer source. To create this source:

  1. Click on Mapping > New Source New Source Icon.png button. From the drop-down menu select "RTSP Streamer" as the preferred source type and give it a name.

  2. Provide the Server Path you want to stream. (e.g., use the complete URL rtsp://server_name/file_path)

  3. Set the Buffer rate, default value is 0 ms.

  4. Select the Scaling option. (default: Stretch full-screen)

  5. Enable or disable sound as per the requirement.

  6. Disable Use Xclient if not playing RTSP Stream.

  7. Click OK to complete the process.

Map Displays to RTSP Streamer Source

Once the source is created, displays or video walls can be "mapped" or assigned by simply dragging-and-dropping the display or video wall icons to the RTSP Streamer source.

To change the existing source configuration (e.g., to change the server path), click on the source name to open the "Edit Source" window and make the changes.

Note: Changes will not take effect until the "Apply" button is clicked.
