    Viewing my Web Cam from my Droid

    I know to view my wireless web cam over the internet I need Active X controls in Internet explorer so when I try to connect to my cam using my Droid I get a black screen where the video should be. I am assuming that is because the Droid doesn't support Active X. Is there a program for the Droid that will fix this? I know I can view my cam from a Iphone but I don't own one and never will

    I use IP Cam Viewer. I have Foscam cameras (that use activeX is using a browser) and it works pretty good.

    Great App, thanks for the reply. I don't even really see the need to get the paid version when the Free one works just fine for me.

    Does the sound and ability to pan and zoom still work with this app? I am considering one of these cameras as a baby monitor. I have a job that requires me to travel a lot and I am having twins with cribs on either side of a room.

    I hope that someone might be able to help me...
    We are about to have our second child, and I have converted the wife to Android -yep, the Bionic.
    I just installed the Foscam in the baby room (currently have 18 m/o baby as well) and the camera works great on our PC inside the network...
    I installed IP Cam Viewer on the Bionic, but cannot get it to find our camera. I tried Port Forwarding on our router (2-wire 3800) but believe that I have some issues to work through on that device.

    Until that time, is there a way to connect the Bionic through our internal network via wifi to view the camera? I just cannot figure it out, and I dont believe that IP Cam View is the program for this. IF I can get this resolved, this would go a long way towards the wife embracing Android, as she keeps saying she wishes she had the iPhone back.

    Of course, if someone knows how to get the 2-wire router to allow access through port forwarding (pin-holeing on the router), then we could use IP Cam view, and all would be good.

    Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
