Axis Security Camera
« on: March 06, 2008, 10:39:01 pm »
I have an Axis 2100 IP Camera.  I followed the instructions on the wiki for adding an ip camera.  But in the instructions, they even state that axis cameras use the url /axis-cgi/jpg/image.cgi.  This url does not work on my camera.  In fact, the default url i'm taken to when I access the camera using a web browser is /view/index.shtml. When I use the /view/index.shtml. as my url I get no video feed on the lmce box.  Anyone know about this model cam?  Or can point me in the right direction?

Holy crap, nevermind, I managed to ftp into my camera and take a look at the directory structure.  I discovered the actual url for this model is /cgi-bin/video640x480.mjpg the url mentioned in the wiki does not apply to this model axis camera.

Update... I found out the above only applies to firmwares earlier than v1.12 after that, the original wiki was correct.

I'll update it again

Thanks again, that's exactly the sort of info the wiki desperately needs.

I have extended the http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Axis_Network_Cameras page to include some basic Axis 207 camera setup info and also done some basic tidying up of the page.
