Issue with recording from the Open ONVIF (Network Video Interface Forum ) device

I'm working on Open Network Video Interface Forum-Java project and following the steps described in the ONVIF Application Programmer's Guide.

I have generated sources from the wsdls provided in ONVIF site. I'm able to retrieve the live stream URI using the media.wsdl. Now I have an issue with recording. The codes that I have tried is given below:

RecordingService recording_ervice = new RecordingService();
RecordingPort record_port = recording_ervice.getRecordingPort();

BindingProvider bindingProvider = (BindingProvider) record_port;

// Add a security handler for the credentials
final Binding binding = bindingProvider.getBinding();
List<Handler> handlerList = binding.getHandlerChain();
if (handlerList == null) {
    handlerList = new ArrayList<Handler>();

handlerList.add(new RecordStream.SecurityHandler());
// binding.setHandlerChain(handlerList);

// Set the actual web services address instead of the mock service
Map<String, Object> requestContext = bindingProvider.getRequestContext();

requestContext.put(BindingProvider.ENDPOINT_ADDRESS_PROPERTY, "http://" + deviceip + "/onvif/media_service");
requestContext.put(BindingProvider.USERNAME_PROPERTY, user);
requestContext.put(BindingProvider.PASSWORD_PROPERTY, pass);

Recordings recordings = record_port.getRecordings();

The above code on run gives an error as:

Exception in thread "main" Method 'ns11:GetServiceCapabilities' not implemented: method name or namespace not recognized

I also tried with media service, then the error is:

Exception in thread "main" The server sent HTTP status code 405: Method Not Allowed


When you tried with the media source, you requested an unauthorized action apparently since the server returned Error code 405. Either the method is prohibited from use, or you need a credential to use the method.

As for Exception in thread "main" Method 'ns11:GetServiceCapabilities' not implemented: method name or namespace not recognized, @Sigismondo is right about the fact that most ip cameras don't support it. You will need an alternative recording method(literal and pun) to record from an ip camera.

You are using http://" + deviceip + "/onvif/media_service to reach the Recording service, but this is a media.wsdl service. So when you try to call getRecordings on the media service it seems normal you receive an error.

The url for recording.wsdl service should be http://" + deviceip + "/onvif/recording_service.

In order to get the corect URL to reach the recording service you should request it from the GetCapabilities method of the devicemgmt.wsdl service.

HTTP 405 - Resource not allowed usually occurs in IIS. This problem occurs if the following conditions are true:

  • You do not specify the file name. For example, you do not specify http ://Server/Web/...

  • The Scripting Object Model (SOM) is enabled.

  • A DTC event is called.

So, when the SOM is enabled a < form > tag is inserted in the page the tag is invalid means it does not contain any action.
