WIP: Fun with the Foscam FI9853EP

A few months ago I acquired a Foscam FI9853EP v2 IP Camera. It's a low budget cheap outdoor cam, which seems to do it's job marginally well. There are some quirks, but at EUR 66 it's not that bad. After the latest firmware upgrade to 2.84.2.35 (system firmware 1.12.5.4) it seems the cam started to show problems providing a RTSP stream towards my Shinobi setup. After some tinkering it started working again.
