How to configure Foscam 9821w HD cams ?

These foscam cameras seem to have some particular settings to be able to deliver a MJPEG and JPEG stream.

One of our users suggests to use the following local URLs for FI9821W V2 :

  • Local MJPEG url: http://your_ip:port/cgi-bin/CGIStream.cgi?cmd=GetMJStream&usr=XXX&pwd=XXX
  • Local JPEG url: http://your_ip:port/cgi-bin/CGIProxy.fcgi?cmd=snapPicture2&usr=XXX&pwd=XXX


Otherwise, please refer to Foscam's forum post that explains the whole thing for 9821 9801 9802 cameras : 


Once your URLs are ready for use in the camera, please follow our standard MJPEG IP Cam guide :

    It was me, how made the suggestions on the Foscam Fi9821W V2 settings.

    These settins also worked form the latest Foscam (FI 9831 P).
    Oddly enough, they have stopped working... Perhaps it is a beta issue (I am beta tester).
