Foscam 8910 White Wifi Ip Cam Recording And Live View


I have a foscam i am considering using for zero rover. 8910 pan and tilt model. I need to be able to both access the video stream live and record as well. I can access it through the network by directly typing in the web ip in the local network and view the cam but im having a problem accessing it through anykind of other software. Help? Thanks

When using other software, you might need a port number. Also, the software has to be able to open the stream file type. Try VLC.


Blue Iris will work.


Do you use blue iris stelmobarry? I know Rich has this camera or a very similar model , im wondering how his is setup. In not a network cam wiz.


That's what we use for the office I think. I wrote a driver for it but haven't put it in ezbuilder yet


Look at this post.

They offer a trial of software and it interfaces with your camera!

I am also interested in this too!

Sweet , so a driver that controls the pan and tilt as well from ez builder? That would be fantastic !


Foscam cameras can be controlled by HTTPget() and the image streamed from http://IPADDRESS/snapshot.cgi?user=[USERNAME]&pwd=[PASSWORD]

Some don't give a jpeg stream, I am not sure about that one specifically as I don't have one to try but it's worth a try in EZ-Builder.

Grab a copy of fiddler and reverse engineer the web page, grab the urls used for the pan and tilt and use those with HTTPGet() to move the camera.


Yes I use Blue Iris. You check my cameras here or here which is streamed with Blue Iris. The porch camera is a foscam F198021V2. Like Rich said you can use foscam's ipcamera tool for free.


First time post.

I want to track location with an overhead cam, and found this thread.

I have not gotten the EZ software to connect, but you can look through the foscams with
