New features of firmware 188.8.131.52:
1) Add msn function
MSN friends can login to the ip camera remotely
2) Audio support in push server mode (Firefox,Chrome)
Nice and long awaited addition, this is done through VLC so you will need to install the correponding Mozilla plug-in.
3) Add daylight saving time
Daylight saving is no longer used in China so it's nice of them to implement it at last.
4) Support special characters on wireless SSID,wireless key and alias
Many people had troubles because of too long/complex SSID name or key.
5) Support hidden SSID in router
Not advertising ssid is a good practice and makes your AP slightly more secure.
TLS support for emails at last !
->If like me you get this error, it means that your camera is too old (mine's from September 2010). Foscam has confirmed this.
7) Improved UPnP function
Improved port forwarding through UPnP.
Where to get it:
The usual recommended way is to email Foscam with the device ID and current fw version to obtain it.
I have setup the following mirrors while Foscam website is down:
Download location #1
Download location #2
The firmwares can also be found on the Foscam Malaysia web site.
Please follow the "Upgrade guidance" document, do not flash over Wi-Fi, make sure you have the FI8918W and not the FI8908W.
About the FI8908W: there is no similar update for the older cameras (Device 184.108.40.206/Web UI 220.127.116.11 are still current), and Foscam suggests that features #1 and #6 will not be possible with the FI8908W hardware. I hope they will introduce at least the hidden SSID support in a future firmware, otherwise this feature will be useless if you have a mix a old and new Foscam's on the network.
