I will see if I can take a look at this. I have had some problems with the AXIS IP web camera my FIRST robotics team is using. Part of the problem is that there is no hard fast standard for motion jpeg. As far as I could tell with our camera was that the AXIS mjpeg server was spitting out an extra message in the stream and since we don't scrub it when reading the stream PIL chokes when it sees it as a jpeg. It looks like you may have a similar issue. If that isn't the issue then perhaps you are formatting the ip wrong.

This isn't the most elegant solution, but have you thought about trying another IP camera application? You may also want to take a look at our list of known working IP cameras. We keep a list of IP Webcam stream formats here. We should expand it to include phone applications too. If you figure it out send us a pull request and we'll merge it in.
