While tinkering with some IP camera's and my QNAP, I found myself testing camera.ui (QNAP Package) - which seems like a very lightweight alternative to QVR, QVR Pro and QVR Elite.

Problem: what is the RTSP link for my older Amcrest IP camera's?

Took me some time to find it, so for my own reference, and maybe for others:

rtsp://username:password@ipaddress:port/cam/realmonitor?channel=1&subtype=0

 

RTSP URL Breakdown

The bracketed items are variables that you need to input according to your setup.
Explanations of each variable are given below.

username - username of the device
password - password of the device
IPaddress - IP address of the device. If you are not on the same local network, this should be the external IP address of the device's network.
port - RTSP port number (default 554)
channel - channel number of the stream (default "1" - I haven't found any other channels)
subtype - main or sub stream (main = 0, sub = 1)

And then there is the option to take a snapshot picture from your Amcrest IP3M-HX2:

 http://username:password@ipaddress/cgi-bin/snapshot.cgi?1 

Alternative:

 http://ipadress/cgi-bin/snapshot.cgi?chn=0&u=username&p=password

Funny how we run into interesting info.
Here is a website that helps you generate the needed URL's as well, also for other IP Camera's. 

This is the iSpy page for Amcrest (it seems - be careful with passwords, even though this website seem legit, ya never know).
