SpencerShepard Posted July 23, 2014 Share Posted July 23, 2014 I recommend the D-Link IP cameras as they are easy to setup, cheap, and available almost anywhere that sells computer products. However, almost any camera that produces an MJPEG stream should work (this will be most IP cameras). Here's a quick guide: 1. Set up IP cam with static IP on your home network 2. Register for Dynamic DNS at dlinkddns.com 3. Log in to your router, and enter your new dynamic dns info 4. Add a port forwarding setting to your router: IP is your webcam IP, port can be anything that works (eg. 8080), and both TCP/UDP 5. In the Bluefish app: enter your dynamic dns domain you created in step 2, with the port number chosen in step 4, in this format: http://domain:port/mjpegurl (eg. http://johnsmith.dlinkddns.com:8080/video.cgi) If you are having trouble locating the URL of your camera's MJPEG stream, check out this page: http://www.ispyconnect.com/man.aspx?n=D+Link All other cams: http://www.ispyconnect.com/sources.aspx Link to comment
