    lj502, Come In...

    lj502, are you still out there?? After exhausting all my resources, wearing out the message board and finally deciding that Foscam really wasn't supported in HSTouch, you left several year end posts saying there was a simple way to do it; I'd sure love to hear what that is. To recap: I have a Foscam F18910W with a fully accessible ip address. I set up a "Cam" page in designer. I deployed to my PC and to my iPad using the standard URL: http://IP ADDRESS/snapshot.cgi?user=NAME&pwd=PASSWORD. The page opens on my PC and image appears correctly, but the page will not even open on my iPad. I continue to wonder if it might be the third question (following User and Password) on the Foscam login screen "ActiveX, Server Push or Mobile". Since iPad doesn't play with ActiveX, it might be wanting an input that I don't see. Any help? Thanks.

      The Answer...

      OK, here's the answer from HS Technical: I'm not crazy; Foscam has not heretofore been supported in HSTouch for ios or Android. However, an update for HSTouch might be out today that supports Android. They expect another update in mid-February that supports ios. Keep your fingers crossed...

        Let me clear this up. You can display Foscam snapshots in IOS, it has always been there. I will describe how to do it below.

        In the next IOS app update though we did add the ability to display video without any configuration. The default project has a camera chooser screen that will automatically discover your Foscam cameras, list them, and then when you pick one it will display it. This is done through the HSTouch Server plugin, version 3.0.0.15 or later is required for this. If you changed the password on the camera you will have to enter the password in the HSTouch Server config, but that is all the configuration you will have to do.

        For now, if you want to add video to your own project do this:

        1) Add an image element to your screen
        2) In the ImageURLNormal property enter the snapshot URL to your camera. For example:

        http://192.168.2.68:7888/snapshot.cg...=USER&pwd=PASS

        Change the IP and PORT to your camera IP and port (if on port 80 leave out the :7888. Set the USER to your username (admin is the default). If you never changed the password, leave it blank (pwd=).

        Set the IsVideo property to True

        Deploy the project to your IOS device and you should see the video.

          THANK YOU!!!! I spent so much time trying to get this to work. I actually tried it with an image element and setting it on video but I didn't realize that I just put the streaming url into the IMAGEUrlNormal. I tried to somehow connect it with the Cam1 that was generated by the NetCam login. However, I guess that one will only be used to control the camera but not for getting the stream. Although this is not being done through NetCam it would be helpful to elaborate in the NetCam help file on what exactly can be done with it and what cannot (like the streaming).
