Author Topic: How to access stream from DCS933L without authenticating first?  (Read 3126 times)

Hi, I need to embed the stream for the video http://ipaddress:port/video1.mjpg into my webpage. I got it to work by iFRAME. However, it only works after I have already opened the browser and logged in to the webcam interface.
How do I make it authenticate automatically so I don't need to log in first? Is there some way to add the username & password to the source code? And it should work for both Firefox, Chrome and IE.

http://username:password@ipaddress:port/video1.mjpg

If you haven't already, I would suggest creating a "User Account" for those credentials instead of using your administrator login and password.

Off coarse, I do not use the admin login. And the: username:password@ in front of the IP-adress works fine for Firefox and Google Chrome browsers, but not for Internet Explorer. And not for I-phone with Android.

It doesn't work for IE because Microsoft disabled that functionality.
They propose some workarounds in this knowledgebase article.

Some cameras support the cgi connection and pass the user\pass parameters differently:


http://IPAddress:port/mjpeg.cgi?user=[USERNAME]&password=[PASSWORD]

Not sure if that will work in Iphone or android, though.
I don't suppose it's possible to create a blank user account and see if that works?

The "http://IPAddress:port/mjpeg.cgi?user=[USERNAME]&password=[PASSWORD]" do not work for my DCS-933L camera.

And I don't understand the proposed workarounds, is that something I may add in the HTML code?
