Important Message from Foscam Digital Technologies Regarding US Sales & Service

We, Foscam.US (aka Foscam Digital Technologies and now Amcrest Technologies), are an independent United States based distributor of "Foscam" branded products. We have been offering telephone support, US local warranty and building the Foscam brand in the US for the past 7 years. However, we are deeply saddened to report that, even after all of this, our overseas suppliers have decided to undercut us and supply to our major customers directly. For this reason, we have no choice but to suspend telephone support for all Foscam branded products. If you have purchased a Foscam camera directly from us or from one of our authorized retailers, technical support is still available via email at

For customers who have not purchased from us directly, we advise you to please contact Foscam Shenzhen or the distributor which you have purchased from. In the meantime, we have launched our own new brand of IP cameras called Amcrest, which has superior quality products and full telephone technical support 7 days per week. We hope you can support us in our new venture. For more information, please visit

F18905W Video Stream

Postby kweiss00 » Sat Jun 04, 2011 1:50 pm

I purchased this camera to use with some navigation software. I have been unable to accomplish this so far. The software vendor says he is looking for simple mjpg video stream.
This is what the vendor sent me.

"What we're looking for is a simple Motion JPEG stream, without the website stuff surrounding it.

For example: here's an example of what URL looks like for Axis cameras.
http:// <your-camera-IP-address>/axis-cgi/mjpg/video.cgi?resolution=800x600&compression=60&des_fps=10".

Can anyone help? Can I use this camera for obtaining the video stream the software requires.

Any assistance is appreciated.

I don't know if this will help but you can open the camera video in VLC Media Player using the following:


Where the IP and port, user and password match your setup.

Note I had to add a space after http:// to keep the website from making this a link and abbreviating it.
