So what is the "legacy URL" for cameras?

Replacing a dead Foscam with a Dahua. I have it working fine with Vera 3 (UI5), but images don’t show up in Homewave. PTZ controls work, so I know we’re communicating.

On a whim, I flipped on “use legacy URL” on my phone, and it started working. But one of my other cameras then quit showing images on Homewave. I’d like to be able to set this for the one camera, and am perfectly happy to do it by hand in the URL property, if I knew what the legacy URL was. Maybe I’m being naive, and it’s a deeper problem than this. But wanted to ask.


Legacy URL will get the images from Vera. A direct connection is better, but you may have to set the username / password and URL manually since these are not always copied correctly from Vera.

PTZ Always goes through Vera, by the way
