    I have some free webspace that I have placed a very simple website on that is hosted on my ISP's server. I wonder if I can l link the camera to upload it's images to a webpage so in effect embed the output of the camera into my free webspace ? My camera is behind a firewall and I have port forwarding setup so I can access the camera on the internet via an IP address.

    Thanks

    Stream to IE

    When anybode has suceeded in setting up a live stream to a HTML page on a webserver, please post the sollution you have.

    Up till now I only can use the default ActiveX provided.

    I don't want my visitors to bother with clicking "view video".

    A direct stream to a html page is what I need.

    Thank you

    I have done it with a catch. Embed a Windows Media Player object and point it to the camera see below (be sure to replace IP & PORT with yours). The catch is it will only work for those who have WMP 10 installed on the viewing PC, I haven't been able to find the codec for WMP 9 or a way to force a download of the WMP 10 object upon viewing.
