Foscam FI9816P

Postby vm_boy » Wed Jan 11, 2017 3:33 pm

I have a Foscam FI9816P. It used to work in Zoneminder (perhaps v1.28). I cannot figure out how to connect to it now. I have tried the 8921P method ( and the 9821W v2 method ( I have tried port 88 and 554. I can't figure it out. It works with the TinyCam, VLC, and several other apps. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. Please help.
