  • Does it work with a VistaCam?

    I have a VistaCam 700 that I'm trying to get to cooperate with the Netcam plugin. I can view video directly from the camera (using its web server). But, I can't figure out how to get a picture thru HS (using NetCam View from the plugins menu).

    BTW, this is my first IP camera. I have a Zee S2.

    I added it to HS in 'NetCam Config', using the link that's displayed when I hover the pointer over 'view video' on the camera's web page --
    http://192.168.1.180/img/main.cgi?next_file=main.htm
    Of course that won't work -- it displays the web page.

    In HS, the NetCam View page has a blank box for the image (even if I select the camera in the upper left). Clicking 'take picture', a link appears below -- and yes, there's no picture to display.

    The camera's network page lists ports for RTSP and RTP; I tried them (http://192.168.1.180:5000) -- didn't help.

    So, how do I access the image for this camera?

    There is the following website that sometimes gets the URL correct.

    Click on the blue link that says 700 and fill in your info and hit generate. Highlight it and Copy that URL and try it in netcam.

    Can't guarantee it.

      Nice!
      The link shown was all HS needed (didn't need the generator). Thank you!

      And, it looks like the 'size' parameter is a zoom; x = 1-4.

        You're welcome. Glad it worked.
