1. Download Recordings Locally

When a Spiideo Perform recording is started the system can produce downloadable video files containing parts of a training/game as well as the entire recording. All downloadable files are encoded with H264 with 1080p resolution.

Spiideo's download options

  • Download an entire game/training with AutoFollow Standard

  • Create your own custom download (Available for Pro Plus Subscriptions)

2. Capture Live Video with RTSP

What is RTSP and how is it related to IP capture?

Real Time Streaming Protocol (RTSP) provides a direct stream from individual Spiideo cameras to compatible client software (such as MyVA, Sportscode, etc.). This feature gives you:

  • An individual camera feed

  • Raw video captured via the camera (no AutoFollow or stitching)

Because Spiideo's cameras send video via an IP network, this allows devices on the same network to receive this footage in real time.

How to send your cameras feed to an external software?

This will only work for games that are created by your teams' Spiideo Perform account. It will not work for Game Exchanged recordings or League Exchange games copied to your account.

1. First of all, make sure the computer using the software is on the same network as the IP camera

  • Why is that important?

    • It makes it much easier to access the camera's image without the need to contact your IT department.

  • Do you have further questions or cannot be on the same network?

    • Please let us know by sending us a message via the chat (bottom right corner)

2. Start a new recording in your Spiideo Perform account

This recording can be:

  • Scheduled via the calendar

  • Manually started

Once it is live, proceed to Step 3

3. Open Live tagging on the live recording

4. Open the recording details in the top right corner

4. Click on RTSP under 'Manage Recording'

➡️ Copy the URL and add username and password @ camera IP etc.

Similar to this:

rtsp://username:password@cameraIP:554/axis-media/media.amp

  • 💁 Please note that your device/PC has to be on the same network as the IP camera

5. Insert the RTSP information into your IP capturing software

With MyVA for example, start capture using one or more IP cameras by adding their RTSP URL for the capture session

With Sportscode it looks a bit different, but adding their RTSP URL for the capture session works almost the same

Further help can be found on MyVA's and Sportscode's help pages


3. Export and Import Data

Export Spiideo Tags

If you have tagged using Spiideo, those tags can also be exported as an XML file from Spiideo (in app.spiideo.net) and then imported into Sportscode (or other tools capable of importing an XML file)

Import Tags to Spiideo

Sportscode or MyVA tags (codes and labels) can be exported as XML file and then imported into Spiideo. The import is done on the web via app.spiideo.net (not available on IOS).

Tip: After syncing the tags (setting the corresponding start in the video for a tag with no start time, e.g. kick-off), they will appear in the Spiideo recording timeline in sync with the video.

⚠️ Note: Right now, the import of F24 files into Spiideo only works after transforming it to an XML file.

4. Best practice

By capturing video live or after the game via iPad and Blackmagic converter, you can even use Spiideo's panned, tilted and zoomed view in Sportscode.

Live capture of Spiideo video in Sportscode can be done by connecting the user’s iPad via a Blackmagic converter to the Mac. Everything displayed on the iPad screen will be displayed and captured in Sportscode. The Spiideo recording can be live or recorded in the past.

The user can use Autofollow™ freely pan, tilt and zoom in the Spiideo app on the iPad and the corresponding view will be captured by Sportscode. In addition, the user can change viewing angles in the Spiideo app. The Spiideo app on the iPad has a full-screen mode to ensure that only the video is captured by Sportscode.
