  1. Any markings/numbers/logos on the camera/web interface that could shed any light on the manufacturer/model of the camera? Serial number is probably the only number you don't wanna reveal here, all others, such as firmware numbers, product numbers etc. should be fine and could help identify the camera.
  2. Automatic x seconds of video every x minutes doesn't sound a feature I've seen in any of the IP cameras I've fiddled with. Your best bet might be to put a cheap rasperrypi and a camera module and then develop a program on the raspi to capture and send the video. Google search for rasperry pi, camera module and programming should get you started. For example https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentation/usage/camera/raspicam/ and more specifically the raspivid section there for the recording, then some way to send it to your centralized server (ftp, or such?)
  3. Hey, We have had problems with their video servers/encoder in the past. Older models are still required to be on automatic reboot, or they get stuck after a while (could take days or weeks). Newer models do not seem to have this problem anymore, but i believe you just have to wait and see. I suggest you leave it off (no auto reboots) and if you have any problems with it, enable it. If you have to enable it, make sure you schedule it to reboot at night time so it will not do it during busy hours.
  4. It seems as if the RTP packets are getting mixed up. There might not be much you can do about it. Are you using TCP or UDP protocol? Have you tried maxing out your bitrate setting? Do you have identical settings on camera and blue iris (i have never used BI but i've read there are are some settings that should be matched to ones in camera, like bitrate and fps)?
  5. Ksenos (http://www.ksenos.com) runs also on Linux, CentOS 6. One time fee per, per camera license (1 camera with limited recording space without license for testing, demo license for full features and 16 cameras for 90 days just by asking). Runs as an NVR with GUI or as a headless machine with web UI or client access.
  6. You need to add the credentials to the url the way browser understands them: http://admin:password@
  7. Quick look at the links tells me the Maplin one comes with 2TB drive, Costco only has 1TB. So they're not the exact same packages. Might have other differences, because 1TB extra shouldnt raise the price by £180. edit: Another quick look tells me the cheaper one is 4 channel recorder, the other one is 8 channel, so has 4 spare.
  8. Here is a link to my post with sample images from Axis M3007PV and DynaColor W-8 Fisheye, also another post bit more in depth of Axis M3007PV: viewtopic.php?f=19&t=45354#p269000 viewtopic.php?f=19&t=42450
  9. Thanks, not too bad either.
  10. Impressive, any low light samples?
  11. Good correction. However some of these non-working instances can be solved with a firmware update, as the firmware conformant is listed on the DoC. ONVIF actually updated their policies (I believe it was Sept 2014) and made their conformance process a bit better. Now the cameras actually must be tested on several devices and devices on several cameras, so cameras and devices tested after Sept 2014 will probably work together with higher possibility. The features are also a big questionmark on most cases, as most of the features are optional, and mostly only mandatory features are supported.
  12. Axis P1204 and P1214 have a super small lens so it's very concealed. No IR though. http://www.axis.com/us/en/products/axis-p12-series
  13. ONVIF (Profile S) is a standard protocol used on mainly on IP cameras and recorders. If a camera supports ONVIF Profile S and recorder supports ONVIF Profile S, they work together. Now when a product claims it supports ONVIF, make sure it really does from http://www.onvif.org/FindaProduct/ProfileProducts.aspx This official search will tell you if the camera actually supports ONVIF. There are many cameras on the market that give you a big shiny ONVIF logo and claim they support ONVIF, when in reality they don't.
  14. Based on the rtsp path, this would seem to be a Dahua camera. To get a snapshot via browser, try one of these: http://IP_ADDR:9988/onvif/media_service/snapshot http://IP_ADDR:9989/onvif/media_service/snapshot http://IP_ADDR:9989/onvif/media_service/snapshot?channel=1&subtype=0
  15. Do you have auto reboot from auto maintenance enabled? This would cause it to disconnect every 7 days.
