This tells you that RTSP is not enabled. So, you're out of luck unless you can get to
web page of the camera and enable it.
[bobg@box10 photosnew]$ telnet 192.168.1.53:554

I see the same result:
[bobg@box10 photosnew]$ telnet freja.hiof.no 1935
Connected to freja.hiof.no.
Escape character is '^]'.
This would seem to indicate VLC will view the Foscam1 video if I can get it to run rtsp?
Nothing more to do until you can access the web page of the camera and enable RTSP.
