    Here are a few screenshots from CMS how you should configure your IMX291 camera. You will have to do that from a Windows machine. You can download the CMS software (Windows only!) here: DOWNLOAD CMS

    If you’re wondering how to configure your PC so it will connect to your camera, read these instructions.

    Once you connect to the camera (also see the CMN manual how to do so, you’ll find them in the CMS link above), open the camera configuration (Select your camera, open video stream, go to System –> Remote config –> Select camera –> Click on the cog) and make sure your settings are IDENTICAL to these below:

    Keep the gain at 60 for IMX291, this gives you the optimal balance between noise and sensitivity.

    Finally, you should also use the ONVIF Device Manager to adjust the brightness, contrast, and sharpness like this:

    Make sure to set the sharpness to 0! You will might want to change the brigntess depending on your local light pollution levels. Just make sure the image is not too dark and not too bright.

    You can download the ONVIF Device Manager from here: LINK
    When adding a new camera to it, click on the Add button (bottom left) and write in the box: http://IP:8899, where you should replace “IP” with the IP address of the camera, e.g. 192.168.1.10.

    Hi,

    I’m trying to set-up an IMX291 camera and experiencing trouble getting RMS to connect.

    I can connect to the video stream on PC using CMS, IP Camera Viewer, VLC, etc.

    I can connect to the video stream on RaspPi using omxplayer.

    RMS gives the message:
    2019/01/05 20:12:02-INFO-BufferedCapture-line:210 – The video source could not be opened!

    In the .config file I’m using the URL provided by ONVIF device manager:

    device: rtspsrc location=rtsp://192.168.0.108:554/user=admin_password=tlJwpbo6_channel=1_stream=0.sdp?real_stream ! rtph264depay ! queue ! h264parse ! omxh264dec ! queue ! videoconvert ! appsink sync=1 ; device id

    Any ideas how to troubleshoot this further?

    Thanks

    Hi,
    we had similar issues with some of the cameras, and the fix was to give it a fixed IP address.
    Under Settings -> System -> Network uncheck “DHCP enable”, set a fixed IP address and a correct gateway (IP address of your router), and check “DHCP enable” again.

    Let me know if that fixed the issue!

    Thanks Denis, I tried you suggestion, but that did not work either.

    Do you mind posting the device line from a.config file that connects to an IMX291 camera?

    That might help, or at ensure syntax is correct.

    Hmmm… So the string in the default config should work fine:
    device: rtspsrc location=rtsp://192.168.42.10:554/user=admin&password=&channel=1&stream=0.sdp ! rtph264depay ! queue ! h264parse ! omxh264dec ! queue ! videoconvert ! appsink sync=1 ; device id

    But be aware that this part: “rtsp://192.168.42.10:554/user=admin&password=&channel=1&stream=0.sdp” is not the same for all cameras. Is this different than what you are using to connect to the camera with VLC? You should basically use that VLC string in the device line.
