URL API Commands?
« on: June 18, 2013, 10:39:04 AM »

Hey guys,

I can't find any documentation on url commands to control the DCS-5222L.

I have however found documentations for several other models at:
ftp://ftp.dlink.com/Multimedia/URL%20Commands/
(Theese commands do not work on my camera.)

At least I have figured out how to control p/t movement for my model:
http://[camera ip]/cgi/ptdc.cgi?command=set_relative_pos&posX=-10&posY=0

I need to be able to get/set camera parameters too, not just move the camera.

Can anyone point me to any documentation? Is it even possible for the 5222L?

Thanks in advance

Okey, so I am developing my own program to control, view and record my camera(s).
This is why I need to be able to retrieve information from the camera.

Main things I need to be able to do is:
* Set IR-LED on/off.
* Retrieve camera model & name.
* Set camera absolute position.
* Enable/Disable motion detection.

Right now my program can:
* Connect to the camera.
* View the camera.
* Pan/Tilt by user specified values.
* Start/Stop recording.
* Change video streaming profiles.

Here is a preview of what I am doing:


Now, do anyone know of any 'URL Command documentation' Or any tricks to achieve the things from my wish list?

Best regards

Have you downloaded the open source?    ???  ::)

The 5222L is a different beast f/w than the others in the dlink lineup.

Most hacks are just right clicking on the links and playing with the URLs... which is probably what you have done.

Hi HQ2,

As you, I have experienced hard to find docs about DCS5222 protocol so what I have done was to use Wireshark to spy the dialog between my navigator and the cam.

It's a hard work to check each packet and find interresting ones but it's very very helpfull (what i was looking for was how to check if privacy is on and how to put it off or on).

If you need some informations, feel free to contact me at lionel.loscos@sfr.fr

@RYAT3:
Yes I have actually tried to download it. But there is something wrong with their download server so I could not get it downloaded ;/

@Robertsche:
This is a software I am developing myself, to view and control my camera.

@Lionel95:
Very good idea! Thank you very much. I was trying that with Cain & Able but could not get it to work. Now when using Wireshark I have figured out how to set IR-led on/off :)

I think using this method, I will find out most things I need.
Did you find out how to check/control privacy?
