Does the Wyse iOS app run on Apple TV?

I’m looking for a way to have a “channel” on my TV that gives me a view of the cameras on the exterior of my house in real time.

Since I have an Apple TV device that might do it if the iOS app runs on it.

Alternatively, I think you guys mentioned that there was some way to get RTSP streams out of a Wyse Cam after jumping through hoops. Maybe I could set up one of my Pi’s that hang off one of the HDMI ports on my TV to receive them.

I think you will have better luck with the RTSP software. I use an app called IP Cam Soft Pro on Apple TV which picks up the RTSP streams just fine. There are a half dozen or so similar apps on the App Store.

Lots of options with Rasberry Pi as well.

If you hack a Wyse Cam V2 to get RTSP streams do you loose the functionality of Wyse’s own app? Is it an either/or thing?

Wyze makes an alternative firmware to support RTSP. It works fine with the app and has most of the same functionality. But you do loose Person Detection and I think some other things.

From what I have read the RTSP version will be less frequently updated and will probably never have feature parity with the mainstream release firmware so that is a consideration.

Here is the “official” link about RTSP.

could you describe hopw you got the wyze rtsp streaming with ip cam soft pro. I have the app installed, trying to add a camera and i cant seem to get it to connect. I am using the url from the wyze app (which works fine in vlc) I dont have a username and password for the cam though, confused.

The RTSP configuration asks you for a user name and password in order to generate the url. If you look at the RTSP settings for the camera you should see them there.

So I did that and was able to get the username and a password. But I have tried a couple of apps and am unable to connect to the camera. I know the stream works because i can put the url into VLC and the cam pops right up. I just cant figure out the right combo of entries into the apps to get it to work. Unfortunately neither just let you enter in the working url.

UPDATE: So I was able to finally get my cam to connect in the IP cam soft Pro app on my apple tv. I came across another thread which is where I discovered that the port for the camera is 554. that was my problem, and one I suspected but couldnt find port info. anyway, all working fine now.

Another option is Streamie, which will run up to 36 RTSP Streams on the latest gen Apple TV. It also runs on iPhone, iPad and Apple Silicon Mac.
