I tried to record video, it shows it is being saved as a AVI, but when i go to that folder, its blank, nothing there as AVI.
But when i record another and click to save, it shows all the other recordings, but when I go to that folder, there is nothing there.

Please ADD your cameras IP Address and/or DDNS to the trusted sites of IE ("Internet Explorer").

The reason why this happens, is that without doing the above. It is a security violation for the standard camera interface that comes with the camera to gain access to a computers drives.

I did the ip address,

1. the address is a http://
but says it only works with https://
I tried both, neither does not work.

2. I tried the DDNS and it does not enter, cu2404.myfoscam.org
I tried to DDNS Service Settings, I get,
DDNS Status Errors in Network Communication

Please uncheck the checkbox where you are forced to only add https links to trusted sites. Once you do that, you WILL be able to also add http sites as well.

OK, i did that, unchecked the box yes that worked, BUT still can not see what has been recorded, it is invisible, just as i described before. AVI gone, only to reappear when I try to record again.

Please create a folder on the C: drive ("Or wherever Windows is on") call it CamRecordings.

Change the Path in the cameras configuration on where video recordings can be stored.

Some folders on Windows based systems are protected. So by creating a new folder to place your camera recordings in. This new folder should not be protected.

Note: You will still need to also add your IP Address and/or DDNS to your trusted sites in IE ("Internet Explorer").
