You may follow the steps below to watch live feed from your device via VLC Media Player.
Step 1. Download and install the latest version of VLC player.
Step 2. Go to Media >> Open Network Stream >> Network:
Step 3. Input the RTSP url.

For example, if your device IP address is 192.168.0.110 and the password is 111111, then your RTSP URL should be:
