Would you mind lending me a hand in setting up my Foscam FI8905W please? Been on it for 16 hours straight now, and I just can't think of what else to try. I'm not trying to get it working under motion wrapper or anything like that, I just want to be able to view it.
Firstly, I can view the camera through the browser, both through the Foscam admin page and via "hxxp://<CAMERA_IP_ADDRESS>/videostream.cgi?user=XXXXX&pwd=XXXXX", so I know the camera is working.
I tried doing it manually first. Have attempted it using "Generic IP Camera", "Generic Motion IP Camera" and the "Panasonic IP Camera" templates, and in each case I have changed the IP address, the MAC (wired), the path (hxxp://<CAMERA_IP_ADDRESS>/videostream.cgi?user=XXXXX&pwd=XXXXX) and the port (80) when it was missing. I've been rebooting the core between each attempt. My security scenarios for the camera are showing the correct device number.
I then tried the PnP method you described in your wiki page for the FI8908W, but again no luck. Not sure if I am doing it right to be fair. I tried editing the "Generic IP Camera" and "Generic Motion IP Camera" templates with the DHCP range you mention, but the camera was not detected. Are there any other steps apart from this?
Haven't tried this approach with the "Panasonic IP Camera" template yet as I don't want to mess up my pre-existing Panasonic cameras! How are they different than the other templates? Can I somehow backup or make a copy of the template before I attempt it?
Right, off to get a few hours of sleep methinks!
EDIT: I've just realised that you can add more than 1 range to a template, so I have now added the range from your wiki page to the Panasonic IP camera template. I've returned the camera to factory settings, reboot the core, and it STILL isn't detected
