    accessing my linksys camera

    I have a Linksys wvc54g camera on my wireless network in my home. I would like to be able to access that camera with my Droid. That camera has its own server built in and I can access it from the internet using my web address. My problem is that the first time that you access it with a computer, it says that you need to download the linksys viewer. I would like to know how to do that with the Droid. Thanks in advance

    A computer lets you make more mistakes faster than any invention in human history - with the possible exceptions of handguns and tequila.

    As far as I know this camera should be accessable to any machine that can access the internet.

    Look for IP Cam Viewer in the market.

    I was researching this same topic today. Unfortunately, my Linksys model is the WVC54GC (not the WVC54GCA). The developer of IP Cam Viewer posted that my model uses a proprietary AVI format that he cannont support. I surfed for an hour trying to find a solution. I made every attempt to connect through other media players and every URL combination with no joy. On my WinMo phone, I used TCPMP Player with the URL http://myiport/img/video.asf. On the Droid, I tried the same as well as http://myiport/img/mjpeg.cgi and http://myiport/ ....no joy. I don't think we are going to get this to work unless we can find an Android player that supports the proprietary AVI format that this thing puts out. You definately won't be able to use the camera's web page since it uses flash for the video. Flash 10 won't be available on Android until sometime in 2010.

    Let us know if you find a solution.

    I read that too about flash player not being available (maybe) till the middle of 2010. Here is the message that I get when I try to access my camera for the first time on a computer. You have to install "Netplayerweb11g2 Activex". I assume that I would need that file on my Droid also. I agree also that I probably need flash player on my Droid even tho I am not sure why. I was hopeing that the Droid was the awnser to my security problems.

    I think the problem is less that the Droid won't support the camera than the camera uses a non-standard video format. I've found that the WVC54GC was a bad choice and probably the most non-standard camera on the market.

    RTSP Player is the solution

    The Linksys WVC54g and WVC80N both support the real time streaming protocol (RTSP://). If you download an RTSP player from the drid market, I use the DOGA PLAYER, then configure your camera to be accessible via this protocol, you can connect directly to it from the Droid.
