  • IIS Media Services in a web app to display CCTV video

    Mar 15, 2018 04:18 PM|oneworld95|LINK

    Hi all. I'm totally new to IIS Media Services and was wondering how to use it in an ASP.NET MVC app to display live CCTV video. The video comes across as RTSP, MP4, or H.264. A few questions:

    • Does IIS Media Services support the formats mentioned above?
    • How do you set up IIS Media Services to serve the live CCTV video?
    • How do you then display the media in an ASP.NET page?

    Thank you.

    Hi oneworld95,

    IIS media service should support MP4 and H.264. but it doesn't support RTSP.

    How do you set up IIS Media Services to serve the live CCTV video? 

    You could use IIS smooth streaming to server these CCTV video.

    How do you then display the media in an ASP.NET page? 

    I think the windows media player control could be used to display the h.264 and mp4 file in asp.net application

    Thanks, Yuk. We have some CCTV cameras sending RTSP streams. Is there any way to support these on the same server?

    Hi oneworld95,

    I didn't find any feature to allow the IIS for RTSP. So maybe you need to convert the stream to support IIS.
