RTSP for new V3 camera

Is there any info on using RTSP firmware for V3 camera like for the V2?

In the AMA and FAQ’s they said It is being developed, but it hasn’t been released yet.

Don’t use the RTSP firmware for the V2 on the V3, they have different hardware.

We will just have to wait for the release.

Did they give any sort of estimated time line?

I agree, a timeline for RTSP feature integrated or as a workaround a binary to install for RTSP is essential for the v3.

They have not given a timeline for this yet

Please provide an approximate time when RTSP will be available for the V3.

I wish Wyze would put as much energy in getting RTSP for V3 as they do for Cam Plus.

It makes way more business sense to focus on Cam Plus first since they make a ton more money both initially and long term residually. Residual income is the golden goose. All else comes second, especially now that they have investors breathing over their shoulders.

I know, thats the way the economy works. I was just to naive to believe Wyze would be a little better.
Especially when marketed as the “Everything Cam”

Wyze usually takes months and months and sometimes years to deliver promised “future features”…I love them and all, but I quickly learned “working on it” means don’t buy it expecting it anytime soon, but they do usually eventually get around to things they say it is their intent to do… I usually plan on a year away.

This one could be sooner since they just recently made updates to the V2 RTSP firmware after previously telling everyone not to ever expect an update. This indicates they are actively working on RTSP. It would also make sense to offer it as lots of people like RTSP for home security use (local NAS recording) and Wyze’s priority is currently their home security integration. These are big positive signs you’ll get what you want sooner than normal.

I understand. Already had V2’s with the RTSP updates. When I recieved info on V3 and that they would be better I pulled the trigger and pre-ordered only to find out this wasn’t completely true.
Like I said it 's my fault for not investigating .

I have 2 v3 devices brand new in the box waiting, I am a blue Iris user so need that feature.
I do have Tiny cam Pro on my Nvidia shield and it supports wyze cloud so the v3’s do work there just fine.

Believe it or not I think you can access those TinyCam Wyze feeds right now in Blue Iris.

I am seeing lots of URLs and gibberish but nothing that specifically says how to get a stream from tiny cam they have URLs but you have to hit a specific camera or channel and that is not clear.
is there some where that gives a more detail explanation on how to do with wyze?

Yah, calling my posts gibberish isn’t the best way to get me to hold your hand through this. It works. Treat the TinyCam web server as if it were an Axis camera with multiple channels.

Good luck.

You have to first make sure that the Wyze cameras are working with its app before setting them up with tinycam. That ensures that the cameras were set up correctly in the first place, otherwise, you’re liable to waste your time tinkering with tinycam setup and not make any progress.

Setting up with tinycam is simple. Just make sure you have the correct brand selected, then choose the channel. If I remember right, there are two separate “brand” entries for Wyze cams.

The “channel” is a misnomer. It’s just an index to your camera collection; ie, 0 is for the first, 1 for the next and so on. You have to guess which “channel” is associated with which camera. Which one is first? Second? That depends on how the Wyze servers ordered your cameras in its configuration.

Additionally, the tinycam publisher responds to email. You’re likely to get better responses to tinycam questions like this.

Your input was valuable to thank you, all my Wyze cameras work perfectly on Tiny cam, I logged into the cloud and give them each channel numbers 0,1,2,3, respectively. then I can view the URL via the tiny cam web browser and paste it into a window and see the stream from that camera perfectly. When I put this stream URL into blue iris it does not like it although I would expect differently. that is where I got stuck.

I don’t have blue iris. Might want to peruse their user forums to see if anyone is able to use V3. It could be some incompatibility with their app.

Sorry was referring to the web page that listed all the URL’s I apologize meant no disrespect. Actually, it was the main URL they had lots of examples but nothing that really pertained to tiny cam pro. the link or URL in the example did not specify the channel or what camera was to be selected it was just a root URL path. although it will log in you won’t see any feeds.
My feeds show up with 192.168.0.55;8083/live?cameraId=1290657941 this shows the Wyze V3 camera video perfectly. just? Blue Iris does not like this type of URL. So I was having trouble understanding how th examples worked when no camera was specified in the URL.

Okay, no problem then. Your issue is you are currently trying the web viewer. What you want at Blue Iris is the equivalent RTSP settings, not really a browser URL. Again, you treat it as an Axis brand camera.

Here’s what I am using, although not in Blue Iris (I am using another copy of TinyCam.)

Camera brand Axis
Camera model Generic

Web port 8083

Protocol Server push (MJPEG)
RTSP port 554
TinyCam web server username
TinyCam web server password
Channel 1
