thanks to sloanish for providing that snapshot entry. At least now I finally have something to debug. As stated, now it will show the camera for a moment, and then it goes away. But that is a lot better than what I had.
well, i remember that on the foscam cameras, we had to start adding the user and password to the snapshot line when foscam wanted to encrypt those two fields. Makes me think we are back to unencrypted.
I was trying to follow the instructions for the foscam camera that someone did a great job of supplying a long time ago. They always worked on my foscam cameras, but not so much on this one. I will keep working on it, but open to any information anyone discovers.
