- Restreamer: it supports restreaming of the video stream to reduce the load on rtsp source
  The restreamer function is designed to reduce the load on the video camera and network channel
  when several/many users are watching a stream.
  IP video cameras typically support a limited number of simultaneous connections.
  A proxy with enabled the restreamer feature will only use one connection to the video camera for all users
  watching the same stream.
  Note: Streams are considered different if their URLs are different.
  By default, the restreamer function is enabled; to disable it, change the following parameter in the ws_rtsp.ini file:
- support Restreamer in tunnel client
- support h265 stream in tunnel client
- a tunnel search button and an example of configuration between a proxy and a client tunnel were added to the test page
- added a mechanism for monitoring connection loss and automatic recovery, increased stability
 Connection timeout:
 The proxy has the functionality of checking connections using ping messages. This makes sense since, unlike TCP,
 websocket connections remain open when the physical channel is lost. If, due to Internet problems, the message
 about closing the websocket by the other party was not delivered, then the websocket will remain open,
 awaiting incoming messages. To close such websocket connections, the proxy functionality checks the connection status
 based on ping messages.
 Setting parameters for checking the proxy connection -> tunnel is located in ws_rtsp.ini:
 Configuring parameters for checking the tunnel -> proxy connection is located in rtsp_ws_tunnel_client.ini:
 Checking the connection status has two parameters:
 ping_interval: Interval for sending ping messages in seconds. Messages will not be sent if 0 seconds is set.
 pong_timeout: Timeout in milliseconds for a pong message in response to a ping message.
 The timer will be disabled if set to 0 milliseconds.
 Configuring proxy connection check parameters -> browser is located in ws_rtsp.ini:
- Added a script to simplify the test page configuration:
 Linux: setup app , Win: config_app
 allows to change the configuration from localhost to local IP address of PC where the proxy is deployed

version 3.2

Questions & Answers

Yes. All you need is to include javascript in your code and initialize player as soon as script is loaded. It can be done in any CMS or framework.
Proxy checks address of the server from which the request came when establishing connections with the player. This allows it to avoid unnecessary strain from untrusted sources.
Playback delay depends on several factors:
- bandwidth of the internet channel
- performance of the device running the player
- performance of the server from which stream is being broadcasted
Under favorable conditions, fullHD stream playback delay is around 1sec.
There are no restrictions. It depends only on hardware performance and communication channels.
No, they don't. Proxy server's task is to split input stream into data and control channels and deliver them to client on selected network protocol. Then player receives data and repacks it to mp4 format, which is supported by browsers. There is no decoding of the stream involved at any point.
It is necessary because browsers don't support direct TPC connection. This is why we use proxy which turns TCP into Websocket connection.
