I found NVRs that support WebRTC
I know that in order to stream video reliable from security camera, it needs to be in WebRTC. I did a lot of research and Nx Witness/DW Spectrum/Hanwha Wave all have use WebRTC in the web view. Their server is free, you only pay to record streams. So you can use a different NVR to record.
There are various little browser programs out there to view WebRTC content in a browser. If you can point one of those at the camera and see the video, that would prove it's workable.

I would argue that is isn't true at all. WebRTC is a fairly new protocol and we have been streaming and recording IP camera streams long before WebRTC became popular.

I previously streamed from my camera via TCP and used the CQC web server to provide a watchable stream. Now I've simplified that and output RTP over UDP and the CQC web browser widget can take that raw rtsp stream and show the camera feed just fine without having the resort to using the web server.

"Really dear, it was too good of a deal to pass up. Besides, look at what it does now...."
I think my wife is getting a little tired of hearing this :-)
I assume he was implying if you use WebRIVA. Currently the only really portable means to display web cams without having to have some sort of vendor specific support installed, is to use an HTML5 video element. But the only required streaming format for HTML 5 video elements is WebRTC. If a camera directly supports WebRTC then in theory we could support them in WebRIVA without any special work. When the server sees a web cam widget it sends a command to WebRIVA to create one there and the URL (and there can be a separate WebURL as well.) WebRIVA can create the video element and set it up to stream just as on the regular IV.

Currently we can't do that, since there's not been any known either cameras that support WebRTC or reliable software that anyone could understand that would take other streams and convert to WebRTC. Why things like BlueIRIS don't already support this, I can't understand.
