java trendnet as generic ip camera (and gsd) problem
« on: September 13, 2007, 11:42:34 am »
Hello every body,

I've got some problem to setup my trendnet ip camera !
My process on working install, and access trough the firefox browser is working ( give jpeg image):

1/ go to wizard and scamera security device
2/ select generic ip camera template
3/ put the ip: in ip, put the right mac address x:x:x:x:x
4/ put for image path /image.jpg (also try full path
5/ then try regen orbiter (no image) also in admin website, the view security camera give no preview data...)

A/ is there any person who have a trick
B/ how to create a personnal template (I create one called ip100w as java script but can't figure out where to change the code and parameters for putting ip, and java script).
C/ I tried to modify the GSD ruby code of this device, but I can't not find the real code (for example I don't need all the parameter of the getVideo Frame... I prefer also use the java applet to control it more precisly. If I make a modification of the getVideo function is it localy or global ?

Thanks for any help.

not sure what your problem is exactly... I have a Trendnet IP camera which I got to work with ZoneMinder, but I haven't tried to get it running with LinuxMCE yet. You might want to try the
urls though, as they will actually return a video stream - the image.jpg url you tried returns only a single image. I have the Trendnet TV-IP400W and reverse engineered much of the control protocol (mostly for pan/tilt/zoom control from ZoneMinder or other applications). Check out my blog, there may be info there that will help you get it running.

good luck

thank you for your help, in fact, I already try this way with no result. I though it was the ip that was making problem... but I fixed it but same problem. NO screenshot available.
Is there a way of making a java ip camera working ?? Was is the process for these applet for example:

camera ip:

<APPLET name="cvcs" CODEBASE="" CODE="xplug.class" WIDTH=160 HEIGHT=112>
            <param name="RemotePort" value=80>
            <param name="Timeout" value=5000>
            <param name="RotateAngle" value=0>
            <param name="PreviewFrameRate" value=2>
            <param name="DeviceSerialNo" value="">

thank you (another solution was to use the or without any result) - home automation
