Hi all, I would like to share a 100% working solution for HC2 / HCL users that want to use new IP cameras working with RTSP, H.264. Problem: as you know Fibaro doesn't respect too much users demands. Fibaro only supports old IP cameras working with old streaming methods like MJPEG, using basic authentification... This is very bad, because it forces us to use old and unsecure technology. The best solution is that Fibaro supports newer protocols, RSTP, H.264, SSL authentication... But as you know, taking care of users is not the main Fibaro interest. Workaroun
IP camera support on Fibaro is about to become history. I love my HC2 but unless Fibaro implement simple "digest authentication" for IP cameras, support is about to die off. Here's why: Recent vulnerabilities have forced some IP camera manufacturers to REMOVE basic authentication. Fibaro ONLY supports basic authentication. Digest authentication has been around since the 90's and is one step above basic or "plain text" authentication (visible in packet captures). It is becoming more difficult to upgrade or buy new cameras that suppor
