Esp32 cam stream on Blynk

I am working on a project in which I need a live video stream from the ESP32 cam module on the Blynk app’s Video Streaming widget. The following code is an Arduino IDE example Examples>ESP32>Camera>CameraWebServer. Using this code I get the camera’s IP address on which a perfect live video stream can be seen. And the video stream URL is http://IP:80/stream. When I use this URL in Blynk’s Video Streaming widget, there is no stream on the app. I was told this might be because the protocol is HTTP and not any other like RSTP etc.
Kindly guide me whether there is something I am missing or if the protocol needs to be changed (if so, how?).
