Title: 401 authorization error when connected 933L ip camera using vlc
Post by: Adi on January 23, 2019, 03:43:17 AM
Hi , I have a DLink DCS-933L ip camera.I tried streaming it through VLC and the below URL works

http://ipaddress/video.cgi.

VLC then asks for a username and password and it works properly.

However I tried giving the username and password directly in the url like the below:
http://ipaddress/mjpeg.cgi?user=admin&password=&channel=2

But VLC gave me 401 authorization error:

Could someone help me pls!Thanks in advance!!
