Seekpeak Action Camera

My son needed an “action camera” for a BuWizz Lego build, and within the Christmas pile, he had a small Amazon gift card. So we found something that looked a lot like the camera used in the app and he used 50 Canadians dollars on it.

It’s a typical Chinese GoPro clone, with an impressive amount of accessories for the price:

The camera works fine, but the app required an RTSP (Real-Time Streaming Protocol) URL and that was no to be found anywhere. So I spend a bit of time hacking the Android app and extracting the URLs.

The camera have a hardcoded SSID called “Live DV” with 12345678 as the password. When connecting to the network, you’ll get an IP-address in the 192.72.1.* range (strange).

The camera will respond to the following URLs:

http://192.72.1.1/cdv/cammenu.xml (XML with all settings currently in the camera)

(RTSP URL that the BuWizz Lego Controller App needs)

rtsp://192.72.1.1/liveRTSP/av4

rtsp://192.72.1.1/liveRTSP/v1 (same as av4)
rtsp://192.72.1.1/liveRTSP/v2 (MJPG 320×184)


rtsp://192.72.1.1/liveRTSP/v3 (same as av4)
rtsp://192.72.1.1/liveRTSP/av1 (same as v2)
rtsp://192.72.1.1/liveRTSP/av3 (same as v2)

Looking at the values from cammenu.xml – the cgi-bin/Config.cgi can be used to change settings:

http://192.72.1.1/cgi-bin/Config.cgi?action=set&property=Videores&value=
http://192.72.1.1/cgi-bin/Config.cgi?action=del&property= http://192.72.1.1/cgi-bin/Config.cgi?action=dir&format=all&property=DCIM http://192.72.1.1/cgi-bin/Config.cgi?action=dir&format=all&property=Photo http://192.72.1.1/cgi-bin/Config.cgi?action=get&property=Camera.Capture.Remaining
http://192.72.1.1/cgi-bin/Config.cgi?action=get&property=Camera.Preview.* http://192.72.1.1/cgi-bin/Config.cgi?action=set&property=AWB&value= http://192.72.1.1/cgi-bin/Config.cgi?action=set&property=Exposure&value= http://192.72.1.1/cgi-bin/Config.cgi?action=set&property=FactoryReset&value=FactoryReset
http://192.72.1.1/cgi-bin/Config.cgi?action=set&property=Imageres&value=12MP
http://192.72.1.1/cgi-bin/Config.cgi?action=set&property=SD0&value=format
http://192.72.1.1/cgi-bin/Config.cgi?action=set&property=TimeSettings&value

A couple of URLs to access photos and video on the camera (is my guess)

http://192.72.1.1/thumb/Photo/

http://192.72.1.1/thumb/Video/

Anyway, this is mostly information for me, but if other people try to search for information on that, here it is 🙂
