I have an RTSP (Real Time Streaming Protocol) video stream that I would like to see in LabVIEW. How do I do that?


The easiest way to stream video over RTSP to be viewed in LabVIEW is to call VLC's DLLs using ActiveX. This DLL is automatically installed on your system when you install VLC. Some examples of how to create and control the VLC instance within LabVIEW are provided below in the Related Links section.
