So I upgraded my security camera and while looking at related items will put 2 more up to look up and down my street, will even try recording at night (cams have night vision) and then will make one live on the internet 24 hours a day just for kicks. Anybody else done this and have any tips, tricks or commentary?

Steve Brtx and Sparks are techies, maybe they will chime in!

Spencer, I applaud you in your endeavor and best of luck. Surte

The problems I had were mainly that I could not see the cam via the Internet URL to check it. Could only see it thru the monitor software or the cam itself. I had to post a link and ask others if they could see the live stream.

My D-Link cam had it's own web server but was a sub-IP address of my Telmex IP so could not figure how to configure it to be seen. A built in web server may also not be what you want to present on a web page.

I ended up using WebcamXP running off my computer (free software for one cam - pay if you have more than one). WebcamXP can stream or FTP single shots to your website. Single shots are easy to configure as they are like any foto on a page. Streaming requires code (Flash or Java) that WebcamXP provides. Running WebcamXP streaming on my PC also took up 20-30% of my CPU and with few people watching it didn't make sense.

The last issue was with a dynamic changing IP. I had to use DynDNS as a constant address. A free account with them gives you a constant URL that is updated by a client running on your PC.

Well ... one more thing. WebcanXP requires you open various ports on your router so I assume any cam requires at least one. Open port means people can "see in"

You could also contact Senor Fox at http://www.ourvallarta.com
He streams live from his Cafe Roma in PV ...and he's a techie from Canada...perhaps he could help.
