Anyone have any success getting to connect to the video stream over the internet on this device? My older FOSCAM works great with this stream address, but for the 9821, no dice. I am trying to get the video into SmartTiles but until I can see the stream on my browser I am certain it won’t work in SmartTiles.
I can get the pictures so I know I can connect, but can’t figure out the stream.
Didn’t see in the manual, which is why I ask. I found a “spy site” they call themselves that had URLs for every camera under the sun apparently. That’s a little spooky. But yes, its rstp only and SmartTiles doesn’t support, so a return it is!
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:
Oh, mine won’t go to IR mode so we can see at night, the wireless is terribly flaky where another FOSCAM next to it rocks, and it randomly is resetting and keeps trying to force itself to look down and you need to reset to get it to goto normal home position. It also reloads the admin area every 3 screens, just keeps resetting session. Something is goofy on that device.
Nice work on the Google-fu to get that foscam doc as I couldn’t find that.
I just recvd one of the FI9821P and spent most of the day setting it and the RBoyApps up. It does have awesome video, but frankly, the WYZE camera for 25.00 is just as good and using IFTTT is a lot easier to automate with ST. I had hoped the Foscam would be worth the extra $$ but it really isn’t IMHO.
