how do i find stream url for webcam like i was able to do it like a year ago, but now wireshark doesn't show me anything when i filter rtmpt. I don't understand it. I chose local connection, start record, reload page, let it run, stop record, type rtmpt and it shows nothing. It's the same for any webcam i tried, al jazera live stream, cnn news live stream on youtube... no rtmpt for any of them. What am i doing wrong ?

Maybe your assumption is wrong, that these sites still use Flash video. Maybe the've moved on to HTML5 video.

Try looking at the capture while you're performing these actions, and get an idea of what traffic is related to it. And have a go with developer tools in the web browser to see what elements are involved.

i have been looking at this for 10 hours. i know for this cam: stream url is: rtsp:// (I know it from before and it hasn't changed, but earthcams have changed. ) So how do i get that rtsp in wireshark ? When i type rtsp,rtmpt or rtmp in filter it shows absolutely nothing.

Looking at the web page I see this as the player: src=''. If you look into briPlayer() you'll see it can load html5 video from So see what happens if you filter on TCP port 444.

tcp.port eq 444 shows nothing. why am i googling for new stuff and finding answers to questions you have.

can someone reasonable open the stream and see if they can find the streams url in wireshark. if they can, explain how. thats all i need. not maybe if you go do this ... or maybe if you did this ... No maybies, i need an answer, not maybe. Maybe if i google till the day i die i'll know everything. jesus.

All those checkmarks under protocols are marked. I tried disableing the internet security. passing wireshark through windows firewall. I installed an older version that i used a year ago when it was working. No stream that i open shows any rtmp/rtmpt/rtsp.

Or someone show me a stream that gives you rtmp/rtmpt/rtsp protocol in wireshark, because i can't find any.

I'd love to ask my own question, but unfortunately, I was not able to find any "ask question" or "create a thread" button. To the question asker: are you capturing a wireless 3g modem traffic? If yes, how did you enable wireshark to capture outgoing traffic? (all I can get is source "host" to destination "1.2.3" on protocol USB/AT) I guess I can see only the host<->interface traffic which, contains "encrypted"information about "web traffic". I'd like to know if I can capture the outgoing IP traffic? Captuing incoming IP traffic works fine.
