Why no Amcrest support?

It's probably Amazon's most popular camera. The list of supported cameras in Sighthound is a mile long. What does Amcrest continue to be withheld from the list?

Hi Max&Leo,

With the addition of ONVIF support, maintaining the configuration parameters for specific cameras had become much less relevant. Vast majority of the cameras on the market today support ONVIF, and can be configured this way. For those that do not, finding the RTSP URI is usually a Google search away.

In case of Amcrest, it does claim to support ONVIF, at least its manual says so: ... -IP2M-841-
