5. Features Overview


HD Record mode

In the menu, set HD video as On from your camera’s settings menu, your camera is mainly for recording, while the stream video will only be used for preview (resolution fixed as 480P), you can control the camera to record by the physical Record button on cam, or through Drift Link App remotely, in this settings, camera can record up to 4K resolution.


Live stream mode

In the menu, set HD video as Off from your camera’s settings menu, your camera will be in Livestream mode, by setting to this mode, you can remotely setup various livestream resolution, however, you can not to do local recording in this mode.


Connect to the network

   To connect your camera into a network for livestream or remote control, you need to manually put a script file on the root directory of Micro SD card.

   Create a file named as fmcom.conf on your computer, using Notepad to open it and write in below contents, please change the value of router_ssid, router_password according to yours, once finished, save it and copy to the root directory of camera’s memory card, please note you can setup the stream resolution/bitrate according to your network quality, options of resolutions include 1080P,720P,WVGA, bitrate is recommended between 1000000 – 8000000.


Reminder: please make sure the suffix of the script file is kept as original .conf, if you saved it as .txt file, it wouldn’t work as expected.


Example contents in the script file for local network connection (using RTSP protocol)








Example contents in the script file for livestreaming to cloud (using RTMP protocol), in order to stream to your platform, you need to acquire the RTMP URL and setup in the line of “rtmp_url=”.


router_ssid= RD-TEST_5G  

router_password= foream123








   once the script file is saved on the memory card, remove the camera from computer, plug in the external power on the USB port through the 2-in-1 Power/Audio cable, the camera will be powered on, and connect to the router automatically. once it’s connected, the Wi-Fi LED (above real screen) will be solid green, and you can see the IP address (the fourth 8-bit field) on the rear screen as the following.


6. Drift Link App

From your mobile’s browser, scan below QR code to download and install Drift Link App


Once installed, conenct your mobile to the same network as what Ghost N2 connected, turn on the App, you should see the camera appeared on the list, marked with a Red block, you can also see the basic info of the camera including IP address, resolution, battery, and remaining space on the memory card, tap on the camera box, you will be brought to to the preview page, from where you can control the camera remotely, e.g. zoom in/out, adjust Filter, Exposure and Mic sensitivity.


Drift Link is a tool in order to manipulate the camera remotely, if you need to do livestream, you can use your computer to access the network stream by input the URL as : rtsp://IP address/live, where IP address is your cam’s IP, for example, if your camera is with this address:, you can access the camera live feed by : rtsp://

Once the live feed is on your computer, you can broadcast it to the Internet through your PC tool.


Connecting to a PC

1. Connect the camera using the USB cable (provided); the camera screen will show a USB icon.

2. The camera’s folder may open automatically; if not, open using My Computer.

3. The camera should be recognised as a removable disk; double-click to open.

7. How to access real-time video from your camera (for developers)

1. Find the default router gateway of your network: From a computer in the same network, click “Start”, type “cmd” and press “Enter” to open the Command Prompt window. Type “ipconfig” and press “Enter” and you should find the Default Gateway, for example

2. Look at your camera’s rear screen, you should see something like rtsp xxx. The 3 digits following “rtsp” are the last 8 bits of your IP address, for example, 148. Now you have your camera’s IP address as


Lots of PC software can play live video through an RTSP address, such as VLC or Blue Iris. Take VLC as example.

9. Auto detection in a network (for developers)

Once a Ghost N2 connects into a network, it will broadcast a UDP package to present itself to devices (mobile or PC) in the same network. The package contains the necessary info for the device to establish the connection. Once connected, the device can issue http command to Drift camera for further actions, the following are the details of how the connection can be established.


1. Broadcast package (UDP) format


   The broadcast package (from camera) is in this format




1)5 - fixed value to specify the broadcast type

2)cam_Serial – Camera Serial Number

3)cam_Model – Camera Model

4)cam_Status - Camera Status, the default is n, indicating normal status.


Note: camera’s IP address is embedded in the header of the UDP package which can be extracted by the receiver.


2. Acquire real-time video feed from camera

once the connection is established, an application can use a media player (such as VLC, ijk or vitamio player) to acquire real-time video feed. The command format is the following


rtsp://Camera IP/live


tcp://Camera IP:8001


3. Camera control

Once the connection is established, the application can manipulate camera with the commands described in above section.

5. 功能概述:


1. 高清录像模式:在菜单中,将【高清拍摄】设置为开,您的相机主要用于录制,而流视频将仅用于预览(分辨率固定为480P),您可以通过按相机上的  按钮控制相机录像或通过 Drift Link App 远程控制,在此设置下,相机最高可录制 4K 分辨率。

2. 直播模式:在菜单中,将【高清拍摄】设置为关闭,您的摄像机将处于直播模式,通过设置该模式,您可以远程设置各种直播分辨率,但是您不能在此模式下进行本地录制。


3. 相机连接Windows电脑(可查看SD卡文件)






4. 相机连接Mac电脑  






5. 相机连接网络:

要将您的摄像机连接到网络进行直播或远程控制,您需要手动将脚本文件放在 Micro SD 卡的根目录下,在你的电脑上创建一个名为fmcom.conf的文件,用记事本打开并写入以下内容,请根据你的路由器更改router_ssid、router_password的值,并根据你的网络设置static_ip、static_router、static_netmask,一次完成后,保存并复制到相机存储卡的根目录下。












脚本文件保存到内存卡后,将相机从电脑中取出,通过2合1电源/音频线将外部电源插入USB端口,相机将开机,并连接到路由器自动地。连接成功后,Wi-Fi LED(实屏上方)将呈绿色常亮,您可以在后屏上看到 IP 地址(第四个 8 位字段),如下所示


6. Drift Link App:


(1)在您的手机浏览器中,扫描下方二维码下载并安装 Drift Link App;



(3)输入当前手机连接网络的Wi-Fi密码并点击确认,此时会出现如下二维码,此时可以通过长按相机  键,当听到语音提示时对准二维码进行扫描连接网络操作,相机连接成功后APP会自动退出【添加相机】界面返回到主界面;









7. 如何访问实时视频流(仅适用于开发人员)

如果您需要做直播,您可以用你的电脑访问网络流,输入URL为:rtsp://IP 地址/live,其中IP地址是你的相机的IP,例如,如果当前相机IP地址为:,您可以通过以下方式访问摄像头直播:rtsp://。

许多 PC 软件可以通过 RTSP 地址播放实时视频,例如 VLC 或 Blue Iris。 以 VLC 为例。在您的PC上打开VLC,点击左上角的媒体---打开网络串流,在 URL 对话框中输入以下文本“rtsp://”如图:


8. 远程控制和设置(仅适用于开发人员)


通过摄像机的 IP 地址,您可以使用 HTTP 命令从电脑或移动设备远程配置或操作摄像机。







其中192.168.3.133:1935/live/5代表RTMP服务器的URL,此处省略rtmp://。 您也可以使用此命令设置实时分辨率和比特率。

注意:如果RTMP URL包含【&】字符,请用【***】代替。

比如如果推流地址为 “rtmp://"

那转换后地址为: "rtmp://***txTime=629f7600"






Ghost N2: 3(1080P),4(720P),5(WVGA)。




注意:最多可以为Ghost 4K +配置45Mbps(值= 5625000)



1080P:                30、60 FPS

720P:                 30、60 FPS

WVGA:               30 FPS






















 其中值应为0到5,0 为关闭Mic,1-5 分别代表每个麦克风电平。



设置相机的时间为: 2021年3月1日,9:35分。




Ghost N2:0(4K),1(4KUHD),2(2.7K),3(1080P),4(720P),5(WVGA)。

9. 局域网自动检测功能(仅适用于开发人员) 

Ghost N2连接上网络后,它将广播UDP数据包,以将其自身呈现给同一网络中的设备(移动设备或PC)。该软件包包含设备建立连接所需的信息。连接后设备可以向Drift相机发出http命令以进行下一步的操作,以下是如何建立连接的详细信息。


1. 广播包(UDP)格式


5 | cam_serial | cam_model || cam_status



2)cam_Serial –摄像机序列号

3)cam_Model –相机型号




2. 从摄像机获取实时视频



rtsp://摄像机IP /实时
