Access WVC2300 video stream only

Is there a way to access the video stream of a WVC2300 (running latest firmware) without having to install the full software package or having to enter credentials to the camera?  I'd like to be able to put the stream on a restricted portion of a website?  Thanks...

Hi Brian,

Thank you for posting. You should be able to access the RTSP stream with a URL that includes an access code:

Access WVC2300 video stream only

Thanks for the reply.  Another question if I might.  I really don't care about streaming video as much as just being able to see the area in a still image.  I setup FTP and then created an Event triggered every 1 minute but it doesn't seem to do anything.  Thoughts on how/if this camera would just FTP a JPG image every minute to an FTP site?

What you see on that page is for motion detection alerts. As it is set at 1 minute, if an alert is triggered it will wait a minute before triggering another motion detection alert. The camera does not have the ability on its own to send a still shot at a set frequency. I recall reading a post where someone used software to capture a still image from the video stream at fixed intervals and uploaded it to a website. I don't recall what software was used to do that, although I'm sure there is more than one option.
