TRENDNet TV-IP310PI IP Camera POE
« on: March 17, 2018, 04:41:43 AM »
I am currently using a TRENDNet TV-IP310PI IP camera that I got from the local electronic store. I couldn't for the life of me figure out how to find out what the streaming link was so that I could use it for WD. I sent an email to TRENDNet and they finally responded with the link that I need. They provided me with two links and the second one worked with WD. I couldn't figure out how to access the camera with the first link. I'm sharing this info to help anyone who needs it. Take care.

thanks for sharing
it would be great if IP cameras had used some sort of industry standard
(which I see now iOT devices are starting to do)

I am finding more and more webcam manufacturers are steering clear of using basic authentication...sending login details with the request like your first example...because it's clear text & anyone can easily intercept your credentials. 

Digest authentication, while not totally secure, does not send credentials in clear text and is much harder to intercept.
