    any proper vms like milestone or blue iris will allow you to do that using their mobile app or webserver...mp4 cannot be viewed while its being written so you are already shooting yourself in the foot by not being able to review video immediately after it happens. You are going about this all wrong, trying to reinvent the wheel.

    Dahua's free apps can do this.

    you say you tried rebooting the cam as a test, but HOW did you reboot it? from the UI, or just pull the plug? a power event would be more like pulling the plug and re-powering.
    then again, it might have just been a quick brown-out (temporoarily lowered voltage on the mains) which would be hard to reproduce. any other devices around the house show signs of power issues (like the clock on the microwave)?...

    I pulled the plug AND rebooted from the web interface. No other devices showed signs of a power failure. I also installed a new camera shortly after it happened to keep an eye on the PTZ and haven't had issues since.
