[kwlug-disc] UPnP 'dropbox'/ftp download / sync equivalent?

When I say "mount the camera", I mean "use djmount's filesystem driver to
make it appear as if you mounted the camera", so as far as I can tell
you're doing what you should be with djmount.

I've been primarily interested in media servers lately, so I forgot that
UPnP sometimes means something else. Maybe the camera is using something
other than UPnP AV, which is a subset of the uPnP standard. djmount seems
to only work with UPnP AV servers.

I tried to get details from DLink's site using the link to the camera info
from your first message, but it doesn't go in to detail about which parts
of the UPnP protocol are supported. It does suggest that the camera can
send video clips to an FTP server. Maybe that is a way to accomplish your
goal?

You may also be able to get more information by using a network traffic
analyser to see what sort of data the camera is sending back when you
browse it using whatever other UPnP client you have had luck with.
