GET http://IP-Address:port/prefix/archive/media/VIDEOSOURCEID/STARTTIME?parameters,


  • VIDEOSOURCEID - three-component source endpoint ID (see Get list of video sources (cameras)). For instance, "SERVER1/DeviceIpint.3/".
  • STARTTIME - time in ISO format.


Set the timezone to UTC+0


speed – playback speed, values can be negative.

format - parameter values are 'mjpeg', 'rtsp or 'hls'. If the format is not specified, 'rtsp' is selected or it is not recognized, then the native format is selected by server to prevent additional encoding. If the native format is not supported by client, server selects WebM.

If neither of parameters is specified, the speed is equal to 0, JPEG format is selected and the request is handled as a request to review video footage by frames.

id – unique identifier of archive stream (optional). It is used to get stream info or control the stream.

w – frame width.

h – frame height.

GET http://IP-Address:port/prefix/archive/media/HOSTNAME/DeviceIpint.23/

Assign ID to the stream to receive information about this stream.


It is possible to use other values consisting of latin letters and digits. It is recommended to use the uuid function (see Get unique identifier).
