Fetching JPG snapshots by URL parameters
The URL example is as follows:
Use the above to attain a snapshot image, this also supports fetching the highest resolution stream image.
Fetching MJPEG stream by URL
There are two steps needed to fetch the MJPEG URL stream.
Step 1: Set one of the streams to MJPEG.
the current chipset on HD cameras only supports two H.264 streams
(Mainstream and Substream), we need to set one of the streams to an
MJPEG stream, as the chipset does not support three streams. After we
set one of the streams to an MJPEG stream, we can fetch the videostream
using an HTTP URL.
Here is an example URL on how to set one stream to an MJPEG stream:
“1” sets an MJPEG stream, if we don’t want to set the MJPEG stream, we
would set the number to “0”, “0” sets an H.264 stream.
When inputting this URL and pushing “Enter” in your browser, it will return the following result:
Step 2: After setting the MJPEG stream, it can be fetched using an HTTP URL.
the example HTTP URL you would use to fetch the MJPEG videostream. Note
that this differs from older MJPEG cameras like the FI8910W, but the
videostream result is the same.
Simply replace the IP address, port, username, and password into the above URL to access your camera’s MJPEG stream.
You can refer to the CGI document on setSubStreamFormat and GetMJStream if you wish.
