    what is wrong?

  • @corto did you get a file downloading from the camera?

  • Yes i have

  • Yes i have


  • Thats the default demo firmware. it should have created a file.

    Look at you wifi connections, do you see M5cam in the wifi manager?
    Mine doesn't show anything on the screen but does capture images.

    Also, they do overheat badly.

  • Yes i see m5stack wifi and the connexion is ok

  • is the address. is the only open port. grayscale image. - BMP stream. - jpg stream.
    But again, you may not see anything on the screen.

  • Look in your "downloads folder" (where ever you download files to)
    You should see a strange file. When you open the file, there will be captured images in it.
    I'm waiting on my MK2 camera (WROVER) to arrive to see what the difference in the 2 are.
