Need snapshot URL that ends with 'JPG"

Post by jseifried1 »

Does anyone know the URL to get an ACTUAL JPG snapshot from my Amcrest IP Cam? I can use "http://<MYCAM-URL>/cgi-bin/snapshot.cgi?1" and that works well, but that particular URL is using ".cgi" as the extension. In order to use the snapshot for an application I want to use, the URL is required to end with ".jpg". The application will not accept ".cgi" at the end of the URL - it errors out with 'Invalid URL - must end with JPG". So, I would need a URL that looks like "http://<MYCAM-URL>/XXXXXX.jpg". Any help appreciated.
