What version of the firmware are you running?
It refuses to respond to any and all URLs I've tried, and it doesn't work from VLC either so it doesn't seem to be ZoneMinder that's at fault either.

And if the link below is to be believed, these features seems to have been entirely removed (!) in the latest firmware

Apparently it seems that all HTTP/RTSP support was removed with v2 of the firmware :(

Is there any way to downgrade to 1.X? My camera already came with v2.

Currently I am still unable to access my camera with firmware 2.00.05 . It seems that password is randomly generated on upgrade, unless someone can confirm the old one set when still on version 1.01.01 remains.

Enabling the HTTP support is still possible in the v2 firmwares.

EDIT: Got RTSP working too. It is actualy even simpler than HTTP, since it can be permanently enabled by Bluetooth without any modifications to the firmware at all.

Please see https://github.com/bmork/defogger for a guide on how to enable RTSP, lighttpd and telnetd. The guide includes a Bluetooth tool making the mydlink app and clound unnecessary even for initial setup.
