Device login and network configuration

Default IP address and web loginThe Failsafe IP address is  with subnet mask Normally, you don’t need to modify this IP address.

Login to the WEB ConsoleIf log in for the first time, please use the Failsafe IP address You can access, to log in to the web console.

IP address configurationAfter login, you can configure the IP according to the network, the IP will be used for pushing and device management. You can configure it to manually set the IP or DHCP.( Default setting is DHCP )

Connect WIFI (for wireless encoder only)

  1. Click web management interface ”Network&Service Settings-Network manager”
  2. Click “Configuration” under wifi for Wifi setting interface
  3. Users could configure according to the related parameters of Wifi hotspots. Put in password, after success, it could transmit through a wireless network.

Note:When using the encoder Wifi function, don’t connect to the wired network or optionally delete the gateway address of the wired network. Becausethe wired network priority is higher than Wifi, the simultaneous connection may cause the WiFi network to push stream unsuccessfully.

Coding  and pushing

The encoder supports H.264 encoding, supports a variety of push-flow methods, such as RTP, RTMP, RTMPS, UDP, HLS, etc.The RTSP services is always enabled for the device, all tools which support the standard RTSP protocol and H.264 decoding (such as VLC media player) can be connected to the encoder and get video streams.The default RTSP accessing URL is:Main: rtsp://encoder IP address:554/ch01SUB: rtsp://encoder IP address:554/sub01Note:”ch01”, ”sub01” is the RTSP session ID.You can change the session ID in the Web console.The following is an example of RTMP to introduce the configuration of push flow. Other push flow methods can be login to the device page for detailed configuration.

RTMP Live Streaming

Add streaming serviceOur device’s H.264 main/sub-stream supports adding up to 8 same or different streaming media services, to meet your needs of adopting same/different stream media protocols for multi-goal pushing.On the management interface of “Encoding&Stream-Encoding and Stream Settings”, for the main/sub-stream to choose “add one stream service”, users can add the needed service type.Add RTMP pushing streaming serviceCurrently, main video live streaming platforms require an” RTMP” service. After adding the RTMP pushing service, click the settings icon to configure RTMP parameters.

Take YouTube for an example“Streaming point” is the RTMP address given by the platform ( Take YouTube as an example ).( Other platforms are similar if questions please contact platform technical support for help ).RTMP push-flow must first get a push-flow URL address from the platform Login to YouTube got below address:

The streaming point should be like Server URL+Stream name/key, for example, rtmp:// you get the RTMP URL address, you need to set it up in the encoder.If the platform requires a user name and password verification, you also need to fill in the corresponding parameters in the encoder.NOTE:In the case of RTMP push mode, fill in ramps URL at Push point and set Use old RTMP version too yes, so that it can be supported.

Restore factory settings

Restore factory settingsIf users change parameters that lead encoder couldn’t work(The typical situation is changed network address, so it couldn’t be visited encoder bynetwork), users could restore factory settings to the default value.

Two methods for restoring factory settings:

  1. Choose” Basic Settings>Restore factory settings” on the web console.
  2. Press the “Reset” button.

Hold the ‘Reset’ button for more than 5 seconds, restoring the factory setting will lead to the device reboot, and restarting the course will last about 20s.

NOTE:These parameters will be restored after restoring the factory setting:

  • Login Username and password will be as admin;
  • The IP address will be restored as, subnet mask will be;
  • All encoding parameters of video and audio will be restored to the factory default value;
  • Media transmission parameters will be restored as factory default values.

Firmware upgrading

Firmware upgradingThis device supports online firmware upgrading for upgrading software.Select” Basic Settings”, pull downward, and click” Update firmware ”.On the page, click” Browse” to select the upgrading file, and click” Upgrade” to upgrade the device.

NOTE:After uploading the firmware file successfully, the encoder will automatically restart, this process will take about 30s-60s(the time will be different according to upgrade content), and please be patient.After the upgrade is complete, via the web interface” system information>version information” to check whether the latest version information in accordance with expected and confirm the upgrade succeeded.

Quick reset and reboot

Quick reset and Reboot“Quick Reset” function is to reset encoding service, normally used for making changed parameters to effect immediately.The whole process lasts around 3s.The “Reboot” function is used for encoder reboot. Device rebooting lasts around 20s.
