v18 IP Camera RTSP Stream doesnt start in Kodi

I give up. I have tried 2 days to get the stream from my IP Camera working in Kodi, but it simply doesn't work. The Stream starts loading and stops immediately.

With VLC and iSpy it is working like a charm.

Here is the the media information from VLC:

Here is the log:

Hi All

Knowing it's an old Thread, I really want to revive the topic.
I face exactly the same behaviour that Idok_ describes.

As described in many tutorials, I saved the rtsp-URL in a .strm file and then start the stream in kodi. It starts to open the stream and immediately stops (before first frames come in).
The URL plays smoothly in VLC, mplayer, etc.

I uploaded the log here: Logfile

The first Error in the log (regarding Framerate) is overriden by the default (25 fps). The second Error to me seems rather a consequence that a cause of the problem.

Really appreciating any help!
(Since its a private CCTV stream, I don't want to publicly provide the URL. If you want to test on your system, just ping me a message!)

Thank you very much in advance and best regards

Hi, I had a somewhat similar issue when using the IPTV simple client addon.
I solved it by adding a kodiprop. Maybe that will work with your strm file as well.

#KODIPROP:inputstream=inputstream.ffmpeg
#EXTINF:-1 group-title="CCTV" ,CAM1
rtsp://192.168.20.20:554/live0.264

Thanks Luguber,

I tried your suggestion and also studied (and experimented with) the context around inputstream adaptive further.

Unfurtunately, this did not resolve the issue.

Any other thoughts?

Thanks and best regards
