Are you looking for the RTSP port number for cameras ?
The RTSP number for cameras is 554. That's the universal standard and if your device is following it you will be able to use this port.
Besides the fact that the port number is standard, sometimes the device manufacturer uses a different one. I don't know the reason for that, but there are different ways to figure out which RTSP port your IP camera or recorder is using.
