URL CGI HTTP Commands?

Postby whmoorejr » Tue Sep 08, 2015 6:00 pm

I can use the rtsp for some things.... (ip cam viewer iPhone app)
rtsp://[username]:[password]@[IPaddress]:[port]/cam/realmonitor?

but I'm looking for other ways to access a camera on the NVR.... particularly a snapshot.

I've tried various methods with no success. For a newer HD Foscam camera, for example,
http://[IPaddress]:[port]/cgi-bin/CGIProxy.fcig?cmd=snapPicture2&usr=[username]&pwd=[password]

i've been trying different variations of commands and user/password methods, again with little or no success.
The closest I have gotten was
http:/[IPaddress]:[port]/cgi-bin/[email protected]=[username]&p=[password]
This popped up a user/password dialogue box, I entered my credentials and I got a blank screen with a little blue box with a ? in it.

For cameras that are on the home network, I can still get the jpg by accessing the camera directly... for camera's attached to the nvr on a different network segment, I can't get to the cameras directly.

Thank you for the document... but still no luck on my end.... even with the correct URL..... after the authentication dialogue box, I just get the blue question mark image.

Here is url I used to get a snapshot

Code: Select all

http://admin:[email protected]/cgi-bin/snapshot.cgi?channel=0


admin is the username, admin1 is the password, and channel 0 really output channel 1. (That's how programming arrays are setup a lot of times with 0 as the first item).

With this, it should no longer ask you for a username and password.

Edit: I just realized I have the default HTTP port of 80 so it isn't shown. If you have a custom HTTP port, say 4321, it would look like this:

Code: Select all

http://admin:[email protected]:4321/cgi-bin/snapshot.cgi?channel=0

Unfortunately the Roku blocks that format (much like Internet Explorer does). As a result, I can't do any testing or use my Amcrest in the way I was intending. The Foscam's allow for a usr=username&pwd=password on the query string. Is there any chance you can add this functionality?

Bump...
Any updates to this? On top of IE, I have tried using Safari and Chrome with the http://user:[email protected] with no luck.

I can view all my cameras individually on their IP addresses using Foscam's URLs.... but not the Amcrest.

As a side effect to this, I had to add a multiple POE Injector and bypass my NVR's built in switch so I can maintain access to individual camera streams.

Come on Amcrest, you are killing me with this.

1) Change the URL thing so more people can access the NVR through different means
2) Please do a firmware update to allow more switch control (keep the POE ports on the same network would be nice or some sort of virtual host) - reason #1 why Hikvision NVRs are gaining popularity.
