I searched on the forums for Foscam Posts and found some good ones. However, the setup doesn't work for me. I know the IP Address of the IP Camera and it is on the same network that my robot is on. I entered the IP address into the camera selection field in ARC and started the camera but no video stream. I have the Foscam camera set to JPEG Snapshot Mode. Any help would be much appreciated.
The Foscam F19831 has pan/tilt and IR LED on/off functions. From the posts that I read it should be possible to control these functions as well as view the stream in ARC for Windows, but have no idea where to start. I guess the first step would be to get the video stream to display. I'm not that well versed on networking and using HTTP commands to control the camera. Again any help would be appreciated. I saw some examples of HTTP command lines but not sure how they work or how to use them?
Once I get everything worked out, will it be possible to do the same thing in ARC Mobile and then connect in client mode and do port forwarding and control camera stream and functions in Mobile application?
Are there plans in the future to support other cameras in the future as it seems from the community there is a lot of interest in this feature. In the future I will be purchasing an IRobot Create 2 and will control it with the EZ-Bv4 or newer version coming out soon. I will have both the EZ-Robots camera on the robot for steering and video recognition things that it does quite well and then I will have the Foscam F19831P IP camera on the robot for surveillance purposes. Will not have both cameras on all the time. I will also have other EZ-Robot items on board including an arm with gripper, etc. Will have RGB Animator Display, plus other odds and ends. would like to be ale to control both cameras from one Mobile App over the internet. Would only be using one camera at a time.
Thanks Much For Your Help and Assistance ! Rick B.
