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.
