Livevideo from GDS3710 without Login?


#1

Hello everybody,

i have a GDS3710. Is it possible to watch the video without login (user and password)
For example, in the browser firefox, in an app on Android Tablet or in Loxone.

Best regards

unfortunatly not, you have to add username “admin” and the admin password to the request (which is really bad security practise)

we have been asking for a feature like that (snapshots and video) without passwords or with digest authentication (or even better both)

This feature will be supported in future firmware but user will take their own security risk to enable this feature (by default disabled). Please keep tuned.

Thank you for using Grandstream GDS3710!

Thank you for your message.
But when is a firmware update to be expected. Version 1.0.45 was deleted again?

Best regards

Thanks for the update. I sure hope one will be able to pull just the static image or mjpeg stream.

I tried to intergrate the current „API“ but failed because it does not send the image but a html Page with the image embedded. This doesn‘t make any sense.

Is it supposed to work this way? Documentation error? Missing documentation? Bug?

The simplest way would be a url where an image (or mjpeg stream) can be loaded without or with digest authentication.

See release notes from 1.0.4.34
—————
Basic authentication of MJPEG video or Snapshot image via HTTP API to easy 3rd party
System Integration, similar to GS IPC implementation.
For easy system integration (with the cost of less secure), once the feature enabled (default is
disabled), user can send HTTP API with correct credentials to retrieve MJPEG video or JPEG
snapshot from GDS3710, similar to the behavior of Grandstream IP Cameras.

The HTTP API or CLI command listed as below:
MJPEG Video:
http(s)://admin:password@IP_GDS3710:Port/jpeg/mjpeg.html < loads a full page, not just the stream
JPEG Snapshot:
http(s)://admin:password@IP_GDS3710:Port/jpeg/view.html < loads a full page, not just the Image

NOTE:
MJPEG stream may feel like animation due to the compromise of video quality and bandwidth.
Similar command can be applied to open source application like VLC MediaPlayer to retrieve
H.264 video stream with better quality:
rtsp://admin:password@IP_GDS3710:Port/X <- works fine with e.G. vlc but embedding the admin password here is ridiculous
where X= 0, 4, 8 corresponded to 1st, 2nd and 3rd video stream where 2nd recommended.

@MikeK: For FW later than 1.0.4.34, you need to go to “System Settings ==> Access Settings”, select “MJEPG Authentication Mode” to “Basic” mode, then those will work but user name and password are indeed required to be input.

We will implement “anonymous” mode (like GS IP Camera) to retrieve snapshot and MJPEG stream in future firmware, so no user ID and password are required when enabled (default disabled).

Please keep tuned. Hope this helps. Thank you for using Grandstream GDS3710.

I know how to enable access to images and mjpeg, that works for me.
My Problem is the “new api” gives you a html page with the image embedded, we need just the image!

Thanks for the continued support and development on the GDS, it is appreciated!!!

I have upgraded to 1.0.5.2 beta firmware and after checking “Anonymous Live View” under Access Settings and rebooting it is still prompting for login to view, is there any estimate when this will be available? Or maybe the ability to assign a View Only user?

@rapple: Please read RELEASE NOTE, Page 25:
http://firmware.grandstream.com/BETA/Release_Note_GDS3710_1.0.5.2.pdf

You will need a new URL to do this.
https://IP_GDS3710:Port/videoview.html

Thanks for using GDS3710.
