IP2M-842 get single jpg image from camera

Postby skierinavon » Wed Jul 31, 2019 4:03 pm

Looking for http:// web page address to pull single JPG (real-time) image from a single IP2M-842 bullet cam.
Tried some of the suggested (found in forum) http:// web pages...nothing seems to work.
It's just a Single Web Cam, I need to pull the single real time JPG image.

Camera is accessible via Internet (DynDns.org - TCP Port Forwarding enabled) - just need the correct http:// web page address for the Amcrest Modem IP2M-842 to pull the single real-time JPG image.
Location: http://glyc.dyndns.org:37777 (working guest webcam access there - using the Amcrest App for my iPhone...)

Thanks in advance.

I'm not sure whether this will be of any help but to grab an image from my IP2m-841 I use -

http://user:[email protected]/cgi-bin/snapshot.cgi

I'm using this in an app I have created for myself and I use it on my LAN, whether it could be made to work across the WAN I don't know. I guess it's a matter of whether you have a consistent way of addressing the camera.

p.s. - I'm assuming that you're wanting to do this programmatically rather than the simple press and hold power button and then press home button screenshot on the iPhone :)

Yes, I want to be able to have the real-time webcam JPG image display on a typical webpage.
I need the image on a web page - not on the iPhone.

I just need the working http:// address so I can include in that web page HTML.

No Joy, with the http:// web page links from your email.
Thanks for trying! :|

links from your email.
Just a security check, I hope by that you mean in my first post in this thread. If you've had an email/private message or similar purporting to be from me delete it. I haven't sent you one.

May I ask, how do you intend to use the resulting image if you succeed in grabbing it.

I use a software development tool based on a scripting language called LUA. The action I use HTTP.Download enables me to access my camera by incorporating that URL and then other parameters in the action go on to save the image to my desktop with a static name. From there it is FTP'd ( when it works- still very hit and miss :) ) to my web space and a static page on my web site displays that image.

I would see acquisition of the image as just the first stage in a process.

I believe you need to use the http port forwarded port instead of the TCP one . Like:
