General Discussion / Foscam F18910W recording
« on: January 10, 2013, 07:34:26 pm »
Having problems recording a file. It appears to record, I save and then can't see the file. If i record again, when I goto save I can see the previous saved file and it's size, but, again after saving can't see it to open. I know the folder where it is supposed to be. I'm using Win7 with IE, so active x . Contacting Foscam support they are now suggesting I use VLC. I really don't want to do that.
Any suggestions ?

Recieved  the camera a couple of days ago. Only issue so far is the manual showed a port number of
88, I used 81,which worked local, not when I tried internet. Had to set it to 8090 and have someone try it from another computer . Now seems like a good unit. Not the frustration of the other unit "Wanscam" or what ever it is.

Ineresting ,I found a couple of control programs -I use IP Camera Viewer 1.2 to provide PTZ control and Eye Line Video System to record and a couple of other functions. For both of these programs I  use the Wanscanm AH-C2WA-B168 setup. The web site selling these on E-Bay show using the VSTARCAM control program. I have tried to upgrade the Firmware with VSTARCam ,but, get a message
saying "failed to read version information of latest ROM" I think the people selling this on E-Bay are selling junk. I attempted to get E-Bay to look into it-no go.
Other than the software the unit seems ok-I put it out side  using wireless and all ok with the temperature down to minus 7 Centigrade. It would be nice if I could get  a working firmware.
I ordered a new Foscam ,should be here in a couple of days. Hope it doesn't have issues .

General Discussion / Foscam on the Web

Considering to buy a Foscam Cam. Went to the Canadian Web site. POP UP asking if I had questions.
I asked a question from sales-no answer. Later asked Service a question, again no answers. So, 3-5 questions, no answer.
Then I gave a negative rating and I get a message that since it was negative it would be removed.
Either I am missing something or Foscam needs to make some changes.
One of the statements is that if you buy from them on line you get support-hope it's a lot better than that experience. I was one finger close to ordering

Bought this Camera on E-Bay.  As recieved it doesn't work correctly -supplied SW is Crap.
The Company will not respond to requests for information. The Firmware is
UI version 20-11-19 Device ID c84e0
The PCB chips-Spansion (29GL-064N90TF104). Another Chip MDSP1500G1 I assume one is memory the other cpu
Wireless board separate AR-USB-806 The PCB HiWare Technology Co. Ltd. HW=H264-v1 , 2011.04.05

I'm hopeing someone can ID a Firmware for this, or info which might help me to get it working.
