How to get a snapshot from a Y-cam cube HD1080 camera


I try to add a Y-cam cube HD1080 camera to my system.
When accessing the snapshot - url directly in my browser I get the snapshot instantly shown.
But, when having the url added in the NetCam config, it just does not grab a picture? So what's wrong here or Am I missing some part?

This is the url I added in the NetCam config (user and pwd are hidden)

 and for a second camera**********
Any advice on this? Thanks.

I have not utilized Netcam in a very long time. (Homeseer 2 early days).

Try the same without the username and password.

Have a look here:

Y-Cam Black and HD Bullet

Try this:




Note that just about every new camera has multiple streams (from HD to SD resolutions).

Here utilize both typically SD for a multiple camera view and HD for a single camera view in Zoneminder.
The higher the pixel resolution the larger the JPG will be.

Black and white or grey pictures at night utilize less than a color picture in daylight.
