Great news on the TOP-308 IP camera
Root access to the cameraLast year I got this Top-308 IP camera and got a little stuck as I couldn't get full access.
Now user Choziro over on the IPCamTalk-Forum has found a great way to get full root access to the Linux OS of the camera.
This is how it is done:
- Telnet to port 9527 of your camera. (Most likely 192.168.1.10 9527)
- log on as "admin" with an empty password
- type "shell"
- type "telnetd -f"
The session is more or less stuck at that point, but that does not matter.
- Now telnet to your camera (192.168.1.10) at the default telnet port 23
- User name is "root"
- Password is "xmhdipc"
- You now have a nice busybox shell that behaves much better than on port 9527
No still images from the camera
Nosing around in the file system showed that there was no obvious way to get a single image from the camera. But that is what I need. So I resorted to letting my Raspberry Pi do that job:
This works both with avidemux and ffmpeg:
avconv -i "rtsp://192.168.1.10/user=admin_password=_channel=1_stream=0.sdp" -vframes 1 "image.png"
That will capture a single frame from the camera and write it to a file "image.png".
Putting that into the RasPi's crontab could copy an image to a web site.
