The FTP File Manager, our control panel for VOD and streaming products, as well as our Webmail system, may not work with Microsoft Internet Explorer 7 and below, or with screens with a lower resolution than 1024x768.
Occasionally, even if you have the latest version of a given browser, it may be set up to run in compatbility mode, i.e. it presents itself as an earlier version to sites visited (which may resolve certain display issues, for example). You should therefore check within your browser that you have not enabled such a mode: Internet Explorer 9 (IE9), Internet Explorer 10 (IE10)
There is no longer any reason not to move to a recent version of a browser such as Mozilla Firefox. That way, you can be sure that any security flaws are regularly patched and that you can view sites with any of the latest technologies that they may contain. Therefore, we do not offer support for issue encountered with the aforementioned browsers and resolutions.
To access the old Webmail system, please go to https://webmail1.infomaniak.ch

But with suitable cameras, delivering H.264 natively, there is no need for an encoder: you can simply connect your camera directly to your video streaming system. However, this system only works with a limited list of cameras (those allowing video to be encoded in the correct format). Some modules, such as video recording, are not compatible with the way IP cameras work.
To access the configuration, go to your control panel and to Configuration -> Encoder Configuration -> RTSP
Should a problem occur, you will need to start by checking that you are able to view the camera stream over your own network using a video player such as VLC. Please check its connectivity and ensure that the camera works properly with the public address that you are intending to use: the camera must be publicly accessible.
Another important point is that it is necessary to use port 554 for RTSP and not a custom port. This protocol is quite sensitive to network disruptions and you must therefore declare it correctly, which is why any other port will be denied.
List of cameras supported:
- Axis: M10X, M11X, M30X, M31X, M7001, P13X, P33X, P55X, Q1755, Q60X
- Sony: snc-ch110, dh110, ch210, dh210, ch120, dh120, ch140, dh140, ch160, dh160, ch180, dh180, ch220, dh220, ch240, dh240, ch260, dh260, ch280, dh280, rh124, rh164
- Panasonic: information not currently available
You may customise the URLs used by your video streams so that references to Infomaniak are replaced with custom text.
Add a CNAME entry to livevideo.domain.xyz pointing to livevideo.infomaniak.com
- open the Manager(manager.infomaniak.com)
- Go to Domain name
- click on the DNS management icon
- click on Manage DNS Zones
- go down to Domain Alias (CNAME Record)
- Create the subdomain livevideo with the value player.infomaniak.com
It's possible to record a live broadcast on the fly or schedule the recording from our administration console or API.
This solution enables you to offer automatically the video of a program as soon as the live broadcast or the daily news is over for example, so as to make it automatically available to your audience.
This option is available when you order or at a later time for EUR 275 / CHF 275.- per year, storage space (which can be an FTP space or a VOD space) not included.
That being said, in the case of audio streaming, it's very easy to send an audio stream: all you need is a computer (a laptop will also do), equipped with a sound card, and upon which you install a paying or free software, such as those indicated in this FAQ (click here).
For video streaming, it's kind of the same principle, but you will need a video capture card. We recommend the UltraStudio SDI HDMI card, which requires a USB3 connector, compatible with Windows, at a price under 350€. Please also read this FAQ (click here).

To obtain good video quality, it is necessary to provide a bitrate of at least 1600 kbit/s.
In order to avoid problems of lag or lost connections, it is recommended to have a throughput that is at least twice that used for streaming. However, it is possible to reduce the quality if bandwidth is limited.
To broadcast a stream on mobile devices, it is recommended to have a throughput of less than 1Mbit/s per stream or to use the multi-bitrate (recommended).
