Description:

This API provides a simple way to find the streams on a camera. Querying this API will return the url that can be used to connect to the stream. Connecting to each stream is left to the protocol for each stream type (e.g. RTSP). This service is only valid for the Sarix product line.

Use Case:

A user connects to a camera and uses the API to query the camera for the streams that the camera provides. The user then connects to one of the streams and subsequently views the stream.
