Seem the latest firmware for IP2M-841B (Amcrest_IPC-AWXX_Eng_N_V2.420.AC00.17.R.20170322) uses HTTP Digest access authentication which is not compatible with Vera.
Newer firmware will return HTTP 401 Unauthorized for Basic HTTP authentication that Vera uses  (both UI5 and UI7).

Last working firmware for Vera is https://s3.amazonaws.com/amcrest-files/Firmware/Amcrest_IPC-AWXX_Eng_N_V2.420.AC00.16.R.20160909.bin

In case somebody is having issues connecting the camera to Vera this could be the reason.

Looks like the plugin could be modified to support digest authentication, but it would take some effort.  See these among others:

..or Amcrest can get their s**t together and fix all the problems they introduced with the last firmware build. If you go to their forums you can see there are all sorts of issues, including unsolicited connections to their cloud servers even for customers who do NOT subscribe. I'm considering replacing mine with another brand.
