This page describes the technical set-up.
Configuring the camera
The camera is an Axis Q1755, which is mounted outside our office on the 4th floor of Singel 468 in Amsterdam.
- Create a dedicated user on the Axis (System Options -> Security -> Users) that has only viewer permissions, and assign a password to it. Since it is a machine, you can go wild with use
pwgen -s 64 1.
- Make sure the RTSP server is enabled (System Options -> Network -> TCP/IP -> Advanced). The default port is 554.
- Audiop Audio setting (Video & Audio -> Audio Settings): Half-duplex, AAC encoding, 16 KHz, 64 kbit/s.
- Enable audio (Video & Audio -> Video Stream -> Audio). This sounds obvious, but if you deselect this, Google will report "NO DATA".
Configuring the streaming server
The server is a VMware VM called coppi.terena.org, which runs Ubuntu 14.04 LTS and is located in the SURFnet datacenter in Amsterdam.
