stream your IP Camera on the internet FOR FREE

The article below will show you how to stream your IP Camera on the internet FOR FREE

Have you been trying to share your camera with friends, or website for people to see a live view of what’s going on?

I recently had a task to broadcast an IP security camera to multiple people, with zero budget.

The camera was already installed. Amcrest ProHD IP2M-842EW. 

Once the camera was working well internally, I setup a Forward on the firewall for port 554 to the camera (Both TCP/UDP). Note: 554 is the standard RTSP port, might be a good thing to change)

Once that is done, you can start testing your camera. If you like, you can test it via VLC media player,  open a network stream.  “rtsp://yourIp:554”
It will then prompt you for a password, which would be the same password that logs you into the web interface.

To add the stream to a website you need to use the RTSP.ME service. (free service is limited, but has been working for me so far). will allow you to share your RTSP feed from your camera to your website by embedding it or as a direct link. 

Below is my RTSP stream, which when placed in the box with (the password is not my actual password though, so the link will not work).
But the format is such. 

rtsp://spectator:[email protected]:554/cam/realmonitor?channel=1&subtype=0 (The should be your External IP address, this can be found from

RTSP://YourUsername:[email protected]:port/cam/realmonitor?channel=1&subtype=0

The /cam/realmonior/channel=1&subtype=0 seem to be an Amcrest thing. But this is what works for me.
