Foscam C1 connection

Postby rsterren » Wed Feb 21, 2018 12:17 am

Hi All,

My name is Rob, i use the camera to monitor horses in a stable, via wifi only, no outside access..

Yesterday i installed a Foscam C1 camera to get sound and video.
in the webbroser and via my synology the camera functions fine.
In the App the connection keeps 'disconnecting/reconnecting' the status color flashed from green to red, and back.. somtimes just a second, sometimes 3 to 5 seconds.
It keeps coming back online, so its not ''dead''.
what can this be?

see Edit Camera:

here's how the Ch.# field will map to that camera's streams

Ch.1 - main stream, stream type 0
Ch.2 - sub stream, stream type 0
Ch.3 - main stream, stream type 2
Ch.4 - main stream, stream type 3 (best for mobile)
Ch.5 - sub stream, stream type 1
Ch.6 - main stream, stream type unchanged
Ch.7 - sub stream, stream type unchanged

*blank*, as in emtpy Ch.# field - will try mjpeg feed first, then fallback to either Ch.4/2/7 depending on specific model

if video/audio stutters, then manually enter Ch. 4, 2 or 7 (lower resolution/framerate in camera settings if needed)

Channel 4 seems to be the best choice.
Still some 'red' but mostly 'green' now..
