Webcam Joy

This one is for susandennis

Turns out that my existing Foscam wi-fi cameras can be accessed via my existing port forwarding on http. It just took some research to find the syntax:

http://:/videoStream.cgi?user=&pwd=

A working example - my guest bedroom, aka cat prison

http://71.198.4.73:8080/videoStream.cgi?user=hacker&pwd=Guest666

This is a visitor login, so tilt/swivel commands are not available (you're stuck with whatever view I last used)

Front north side of the house:
http://71.198.4.73:8585/videoStream.cgi?user=hacker&pwd=Guest666

"Rugcam" - center of the livingroom:
http://71.198.4.73:8484/videoStream.cgi?user=hacker&pwd=Guest666

Real Soon Now I'll be updating my web site to use these:

In other news the replacement router has been delivered, when I get home tonight I'll set it up and hopefully all 8 webcams will be back online.

And I can return the rtsp-capable camera.
