Brickcom WCB 100A Video streams

Postby kp4djt » Wed Jun 01, 2011 10:39 pm

Folks,
I have some of these which I am testing. I can see the mjpeg stream in FireFox using the
following URL
http://cam_IP_address/channel2
The 2nd channel needs to be set to mjpeg, but once you do that and use that address
the camera shows great video. I have tried the following video settings:
320 X 190
640 X 400
1280 X 800

All of them give great video.
I have also tried RTSP, again URL is
rtsp://cam_IP_address/channel1

Firefox fires up VLC and I get both video AND audio. So both streams are working
just fine.

I try to access them on ZM, it appears that it wants to run but I never get any video.
I get some complaints about shared memory, but I have that set way high, indeed I
have other cameras I can turn on and have no issues with it. I deactivated some cams
on my system just to make sure I was not using more than I should be still no joy.

Has anyone tried to get one of these cams to work? If so was there anything unique
about this?

I have some Trendnet cams that have awful video, I see ZM complain about broken
frames, I can see them wink and flash but it still will copy it, these have great video
I do not see any strange artefacts in the video stream, I do not see if do funny things
like some of the other cheap cameras I have around here do. I usually have no issues
getting a camera working if I can see the video in FF or on VLC.
