If your NVR has a password then the parameters are as follows:
For IPC the parameters are as follows:
rtsp://192.168.0.13:554/media/video1 - mainstream

@192.168.0.1 is the IP address of the NVR or IPC (remember this will be a different IP address for you).
:554 is the specific port required to load RTSP, (please remember that if you are trying to load your RTSP feed outside of your local network that you will need to open port 554 on your router).
/unicast is the host server.
/media is explaining that you are attempting to load a media file.
/c1 is the channel of which you are trying to load from your recorder so if you were trying to load channel 4 you would put /c4.
/s0 means to load the Mainstream whereas /s1 is to load Substream.
