Check the wiki for the Advanced IP Camera device, and see if following the instructions will get you going.

Looks good. Do you get a picture when you use curl http://192.168.80.135/mjpeg/snap.cgi?chn=0

Attached is my working device. One thing that might cause issues is using video in stand of pictures...

I have contacted Sambuca, the developer of the Advanced IP Camera template, to have a look. Let's see what he finds.

See if your camera can do JPEGs instead of MJPEG
