Hello @Kmart and thanks for your message.

As mentioned in another thread you posted, the URL is not reachable via internet. VLC is throwing the following error:

Connection failed
VLC could not connect to 'rtsp://1.rtsp.dvr163.com:443/live?

Please make sure that it is possible to open the stream via VLC and that it also fulfil the requirements listed in the documentation.

Regards,
Barry

Hi Barry, Thank you for your response.

Is is right that if the RTSP is correct it must can be played on VLC ?

Hi @Kmart,

Yes, that is correct. For Alexa to be able to stream the RTSP, VLC must be able to stream it as well.

Barry
