Sadly. These instructions will only work for H.264 Foscam camera models, currently being sold. They will NOT work with your camera model. Because of that.

Since I have no access to the older H.264 Foscam camera models, no longer being sold. I have no ways to test methods for those camera models. To force install the browser plugin.

Thanks for your fast reply!
It works now!
I downloaded the new plugin from the camera "http://cam-ip-address:port/plugins.pkg" , and installed the new plugin by double click on the plugins.pkg file!

But before I enabled in mac 10.9 (mavericks) under system preferences/security&privacy "allow apps downloaded from anywhere!

I don't see it mentioned anywhere but for Firefox (v26) you need to clear the cache otherwise if you go to settings, it will stall with the message: "Downloading Device Information". I haven't seen this behaviour with IE or Chrome.

I have win7 64 bit.
Just purchased 2 of the FI 9821W v2 cameras. They have the latest firmware.
In Firefox 26.0, the active X control installed just fine.
In IE 11, when I connect to the camera, on the logon screen, there still is the "plugins not found, click me to download".
When I click on the link, the file that comes up as wanting to be downloaded is plugins.pkg.. NOT an extension that IE is familiar with.
The file will not install in IE.
I did use your script, the fsipcam.cab is asked it I will allow it to install, and as far as I can tell it does.
I check the Manage plugins tool and it indicates that ocxipcam control is enabled version 2.0.1.6.
What else needs to be done to get stupid IE to work!?!?!?! :evil:

When accessing the cameras. Please set "Compatibility" mode in IE:

Well that didn't work so well....
The only way I could turn on comp. mode was to click on the tools-compatibility view settings, and add the IP address of the camera.

Seemed to work (I saw the live video window and it did ask to install the activeX control), but IE crashes with a warning stating that IE had to close and reopen the tab.

This returns me to the camera's log in page.

A little closer but still not there.

It seems like you may have some system problems.

Are you current with all Windows Updates?

What version of Windows are you on and if XP what service pack?
