Foscam Streaming in AT?

Gblaze 75 2 years ago in Media Tiles / Video Camera Feeds updated by Terry (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 2 years ago 3

Hi Everyone,

Does anyone have a Foscam IP camera that they cannot stream in AT? I used to be able to do this with the legacy Action Dashboard. Now, any of the URL's that i plug in doesn't work. 

http://ipaddress:port/cgi-bin/CGIProxy.fcgi?usr=xxx&pwd=xxx&cmd=setSubStreamFormat&format=1

http://ipaddress:port/cgi-bin/CGIStream.cgi?cmd=GetMJStream&usr=xxx&pwd=xxx

rtsp://admin:admin@ipaddress:port/videoMain

If your camera stream worked in SmartTiles, then it should work fine in ActionTiles. Streaming is processed only by your browser, not by our cloud.

Embedded rtsp:// is not supported by nearly any browser.

https://user:password@address is blocked by Chrome and Android Webview for embedded content. (Try Firefox?).

Test your other potential URLs in a plain browser tab outside of ActionTiles first. That doesn't guarantee it will work, but it is a prerequisite.

Hi Terry,

I did try the potential URLs in a plain browser and they don't work. I've been trying all the potential URLs and none of them seem to work.

Then your camera(s) may not supply MJPEG streams. You can possibly find a JPEG snapshots URL instead.

Or this database might be fruitful...
