This page serves as a virtual tour of the Videon Web UI. Here we will be showcasing the navigation as well as look and feel of the Videon Web UI.

Encoder Control

The Encoder Control screen shows all devices on the network that have the encoder enabled. It also shows details of each encoder:

  • Device Name - The name of the associated Encoder
  • AV Input Type - The type of input the device will be looking to use as a video/audio source
  • Input Resolution - The resolution and framerate of the detected video input that corresponds to AV Input Type
  • Streaming - Indicates the status of the encoder's output
  • Recording - Indicates the status of file recording

Encoder Settings

Clicking the Configure button under the Encoder Settings column will open a pop-up menu where the characteristics of their encoded stream can be configured.

Output Settings

Clicking the Configure button under the Output Settings column will open a pop-up menu where the various outputs of the encoder can be configured.

RTMP Output

Information on the different RTMP Outputs can be found at RTMP streaming tips.

RTMP Output is typically used for streaming content over the public internet to destinations like YouTube Live and Facebook Live. Videon encoders can stream to any RTMP destination, given a valid RTMP URL.

Multicast Output

Multicast output is typically used for a one-to-many type workflow. Multicast broadcasts typically only remain on the local network.

To set up multicast streaming, ensure the correct data is entered in the fields according to Multicast streaming tips, flip the switch on, and click either OK or Apply.

Unicast Output

Unicast output is typically used in one-to-one workflows. Unicast streams can be on the local network, from network to network, or even country to country. All that is needed is the proper network setup to facilitate the transmission of the RTP or UDP stream (the protocols used by Unicast). 

To set up unicast streaming, ensure the correct data is entered in the fields according to Unicast streaming tips, flip the switch on, and click either OK or Apply.

Both unicast outputs can be streaming simultaneously.

File Recording

File recording is used to record the stream from the encoder to a USB drive inserted into a Videon device.

Once a USB drive is inserted into the Videon device, file recording can be done by flipping the switch on and clicking either OK or Apply.

For best results, make sure to follow File recording tips.

FTP Upload

FTP Upload is intended for sending a recorded stream for storage on an FTP server.

To set this up, enter a valid FTP server address or name, a valid username and password combination, and the filepath (optional) where the files will be stored.

Enabling Delete file from USB after upload will erase the saved stream from the USB storage device once upload to the FTP server is complete.

Clicking Test Connection will attempt to connect to the FTP server using the above credentials. Upon successful connection, three check marks will be seen next to each row of credentials.

For more info, see FTP upload tips.

Decoder Control

For information on decoding, see Unicast decoding tips and Multicast decoding tips.

Decoding from a Videon Encoder

When decoding from a Videon Encoder (on the same network), simply select the encoder by name, choose the stream type to decode, and the protocol and port.

Decoding from a non-Videon encoder or an encoder on a different network

When decoding from a non-Videon encoder or an encoder on a different network, select Other Encoder, the stream type, and enter the respective information into the fields that appear.

Decoder Quick Control

Videon decoders have a Quick Control button that allows for the control of the decoder with a single click!

Device Settings

In the Device Settings menu, the device namedevice roles (enable/disable encoder/decoder), and network settings can be configured.

For information on how to set up network settings, see "Setting up Videon devices for a static network" in Network tips.

Advanced Settings

The Advanced Settings menu contains various settings/operations that can be configured/utilized.

Password/Authentication Management

Videon devices can be set up with authentication to require a password to be entered on connection to the device. To set a password, enable Authentication, enter the new password, then confirm. Upon next connection, the Videon device will require a username and password (username is always admin).

To change the password, click Change Password, then follow the pop-up dialogue.

To disable authentication, flip the on/off switch and enter the admin password.

For more information, see Setting up password protection.

Rebooting from the Web UI

To reboot a Videon device from the UI, simply click the Reboot button and confirm the reboot. The device will notify in the browser when the reboot has finished.


Reset Settings

To reset all settings on the Videon device except Device NameDevice RoleNetwork Settings, and Authentication Settings.

To reset all settings on a Videon device, perform a Factory Reset.
