Ispy setup

Postby jandeman » Thu Jul 07, 2011 3:21 pm


I am having troubles in setting up Ispy for my FI8918W camera.
I have entered values under MJPEG URL., such as
Username, password,
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 Is this right?
IP address in my network

The response is: Could not read from stream

Has somebody managed to get it running?

Yes I have it working,
You need to put something like this "/video.cgi" or this "/videostream.cgi" after your IP and port number when adding a cam to Ispy in it's setup.

Thanks robqld

I also got it to work with /videostream.cgi. This allows setting alarm conditions and record the video.

Click on "Help me find the right URL" link right under where you would type the URL into ISpy.

Type in your IP, select Foscam, then copy and paste.
