Well instead of 5-7 days, they fed-ex'd it to me with 3-day and a Sat delivery to boot, cant beat that mistake huh?
I will not have a Core up until Monday (hardware just arrived) night to actually test with as I wasnt expecting this for a few more days.
Looks like the stream location is: /cgi-bin/sf.cgi
Short summary pre-LinuxMCE
This camera puts the linksys camera to shame! The amount of configuration available is amazing!
Video quality compared to the linksys camera is like night and day, literally. Not to mention that it is able to look around the room. The video image is encryptable (not sure how this will work with LinuxMCE) if you wanted extra security against eve-droppers(128-bit AES).
It supports email and ftp connections to save images\recordings to, along with a built in CF slot. It will do this based on preset triggers from motion detection or from 1 of 2 inputs from other devices. There is also an output to trigger other devices. Uses on\off functionality via these connections.
3 levels of access admin-full control, user-view video and move camera, guest-view video only. you can upload a custom logo to the cameras internal website.
Built in IR lights for night vission
Got this line out of it, so those linux guru's might be able to connect and do some stuff.
Vilar IPCamera's OS is based on Linux 2.6 kernel, running on no-MMU CPU. The HTTP server is BOA.
CPU: 32bit Arm @ 66MHz
Instructions are terrible and is almost a picture book for kids. Shows a pic for each setting page but does not provide infor for them. Help from within the setup page instructs you to look at this manual. The link provided for support does not work: http://www.vipcam.cn/techsupport/
On the video in the upper left corner is the wording "ipcam / 00:00:00" Im assuming this should be the time, but it is static 0's
Overall I'm considering buying several more pending if it works with LinuxMCE. It seems like a mistake priced for $89.99, especially compared to the linksys at $119.99. Its dark here, but here is a sample vid in a pitch black room: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aTYyiUa0StE
(just uploaded so give youtube some time to process) ill try to do one in daylight tomorrow, but i might not get around to it with the holiday. The purpose of the cam here is so my wife can view the baby (3-months).
