Since RTSP stands for Real Time Streaming Protocol, it would certainly suffice. Comments to the contrary leave out that RTSP works in VLC, QuickTime, RealPlayer and several other 3rd party apps without the needs for an Android emulator.
I find it puzzling this was not included in the initial design.
Thanks for the reply. I have no issue with using the iOS/Android app but for those wanting RTSP, this is great news! For my purposes, having an app on my phone I can use to check my feeds is great. Currently, I don’t -need- the RTSP functionality but I may need to install a home-brew security system and I do know RTSP is required. RTSP does make using the cameras with the OpenSource security camera package ‘Zoneminder’ possible. I would like to encourage Wyze to stick with the RTSP development line.
Um, the previous reply (DeanSmith Jan 24, the second and last reply directly under original post) is really besides the point. There’s no assumption it needs to be a local firmware IP web server with port forwarding. It can be a web delivered AJAX app (or even standalone executable) that pulls exactly the SAME streams that the phone apps already do.
I use my Android phones to see the Wyze cams but often I would prefer to use my computer (Windows 10). The only way I have found to do this is with BlueStacks but I don’t need that program for anything else and it is a resource hog. Any chance of getting an app just for the Wyze cams for Windows?

Good news, since Wyze dropped support for RTSP I began to look for another cam solution. For many automation folks out there, who needs to use cams in conjuntion with HomeAssistant or OpenHub, we need to see at least our cams in our browser. Perhaps WebRTC can do the job as well. My upvote for a web version, not a desktop one, everyone has a browser, but not everyone uses Windows or mac, specially if you are using HA or OH.
Agree. Anyway, it sounds ambiguous to me when they stated “Using the RTSP firmware will prevent the camera from supporting any future functionality additions and bug fixes”. For me that means end of support by all means.
If you see the newer announce, they removed preisely that statement. Don’t know if because they recognize that sounded ambiguous or because many people complained about end of support for the beta firmware last year and the reconsidered to release a newer beta version this year.
Anyway, it’s a good new they still release a version with RTSP, I’m going to burn it on my cams as soon as I can to integrate them into HA.
