Greetings Group

I want to setup my webcam with a streaming feed through my personal web
site. While I'm at work I will then navigate to my web site on the
internet, using MS Internet Explorer 5 no less, so that I can view what's
happening at home. If I could make this part of my web site relatively
secure, all the better.

I currently have a Logitech Quickcam Pro 4000, I'm running MS Windows XP Pro
on a P4 2.4GHz system with 768MB PC333 RAM and a 1mb Broadband cable
internet connection.

Can you help?

Can you suggest any web sites that may help me?

Can you suggest a good, competitively priced, piece of software that I could
use?

If you have a alternative method of setting up this type of system, I'm all
for it. Just bear in mind I'm not allowed to install any additional
software on the PC I use in work.

Just remember, I am a novice, so laymans terms rule :) 

Thank you

Ian.

Ian,

You can use the free Windows Media Encoder from Microsoft for this
More info @
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/9series/e...

Have a look at my webcam (if you want) to see how it looks
http://webcam.kijk.info

Let me know if you need some help to set it up.

I've downloaded the Windows Media Encoder.

Remember, I am a novice.

Thanks for the link.

looks interesting. I've downloaded the software to try out.

Can you tell me what does http://localhost:8080 mean? What should the
"localhost" part be replaced with?


Thank you

Ian.

Ops. Sorry, just found out what 'local host' means.

I've also found out that WebCam 2000 only serves still images, but I want
streaming.

Cheers

Ian.

Okay Ian... step 2

after installing it, start it.

A windows "New Session" will popup. Select "Broadcast a live event" and
click on OK
With a bit of luck the "New Session Wizard" will now show.
Select "Video" and the (default video device)
De-select the audio!
Click on next
Select "Pull from the encoder (....)
Click on next
Enter for HTTP port 200
Click on Next
Select in the drop down box "Live broadcast video (CBR)
Deselect the 259 Kbps box
Select the 102 Kbps 15 fps box
Click on next
Leave the "Archive a copy of the broadcast.. " deselected
Click on next
Enter some data (if you want) in the "Display Information" Users will see
this when they look at your stream
Click on next
Click on Finish

Ok.. At the top of the big black window you see
Zoom: 100% Display: Output Preview: 102 KBps (160 x 120)
Change the Display: Output to Input
You should now see what your webcam is seeing.. If not we have a problem!
Just above the "Zoom.. Display.. Output" text you see a VCR kind of button
(green) with the text Start Encoding!
Click on it!

You are now streaming video!

Now try to connect to your stream on the PC that you are running the program
on!

You can do this by entering the following text in Internet Explorer
mms://127.0.0.1:200
(NOTE the MMS:// it's NOT HTTP://)

Let me know if this is working for you!

If it's all okay, I'll show you how to get this into a homepage!

One more thing! there is NO DATA used as long as NO ONE is connected to your
webcam!

Noël

I followed your instructions and everything went fine.

What I don't understand is how entering MMS://127.0.0.1:200 allows me to see
the web cam. That's not my IP address, where did that come from?

In the "Direct Connection URLs" section of the Connections tab it states
http://[my local computer name]:200/, shouldn't this display my IP address?

Another thing I noticed was time delay between what I did and when it
appeared in the windows media player. It wasn't a long delay, just a few
seconds, but it felt weird.

OK What's next??

Ian.

Okay Ian,

The IP 127.0.0.1 is what we call the local IP. You could even connect to
your stream by using "mms://localhost:/200" instead of "mms://127.0.0.1:200"
All PC have this IP!

Anyway.. lets get your stream online!

1st you will need to find your real IP (the one you get from your provider)
go to http://www.whatismyip.com and write down you IP
I hope that you have a static IP (one that is fixed) as this will make
things much easier for you.
The only way you can see is by checking your IP every now and than on
www.whatismyip.com and see if it's still the same!

Now start the Windows Media Encoder and start streaming again. Next thing is
to call a friend and ask him to connect to your IP and see if he is seeing
the stream!
Tell him to connect like you did with the 127.0.0.1 IP but use the IP you
got from whatismyip.com. Remember MMS:// and the :200
( mms://THE_IP_YOU_GOT_FROM_THE_SITE:200 )

If he is NOT seeing the stream it might be because you are behind a firewall
/ router!
In this case you will need to route the (200) port to the PC that is running
the Windows Media Encoder.

Okay.. I hope everything is working.. All you need to do now is use the
following code in your personal web site.
(start to copy at the <object id = ... end to copy at </object> )

NOTE!
Make sure you change the *****IP****** part to YOUR IP. (2 times)
With the "width=" and "height=" you can set the size of the stream display.
With the "showcontrols=", "showdisplay=" and "showstatusbar=" you can set
some extra things on and off (0 = off and 1 = on)


<object id="NSPlay"
width="336"
height="280"
classid="CLSID:22D6F312-B0F6-11D0-94AB-0080C74C7E95"
codebase="http://activex.microsoft.com/activex/controls/mplayer/e....

type="application/x-oleobject">
<param name="FileName" value="mms://*****IP*****:200">
<param name="ShowControls" value="0">
<param name="ShowDisplay" value="0">
<param name="ShowStatusBar" value="1">
<param name="AutoSize" value="0">

diaPlayer/"
filename="mms://*****IP*****:200"
showcontrols="0"

showstatusbar="1"
autosize="0">
</embed>
</object>


That's about it Ian. Let me know if you got it to work or not!
If you are using a firewall, let me know what type! I might be able to help
you to route the "200" port!

Good luck!

Small correction.

| your stream by using "mms://localhost:/200" instead of
"mms://127.0.0.1:200"

should be

your stream by using "mms://localhost:200" instead of "mms://127.0.0.1:200"


Also the code that needs to be used for your website got messed up a bit!
You can see the correct code here:

I've got my IP address, so I thought I'd try it when I'm at work tomorrow to
see if it works.

I'll let you know the results tomorrow.

Fingers crossed.

Thank you

Ian.

Just curious.

I've created a startup icon in my startup group. It now starts Windows
Media Encoder and my session, but how can I start it encoding? Is there a
switch I can use at the end of the Target command line to start the session
encoding?

Cheers

Ian.

Ian, you are doing well for a "novice" :) 

re: Is there a switch I can use at the end of the Target command line to
start the session encoding?

Yes there is!

1st you will need to create a "session" with the Windows Media Encoder and
save it at the same place/directory as where you have installed the Windows
Media Encoder (name the session: stream.wme)

Then you will need to create a Shortcut with the following in it (all in one
line and note the "")

"C:\Program Files\Windows Media Components\Encoder\wmenc.exe" stream.wme
/Start

If you installed the Windows Media Encoder in an other path, you will need
to change it!
This shortcut will load the "session" named stream.wme, and will auto start
the Windows Media Encoder!

One other small thing about your work place. A lot of companies are blocking
strange ports (like the 200 one that you are using) In this case try an
other port (like 8080 or 80)

Good luck.

Noël

Thanks for the instructions, that command line works a treat. I've also
changed the port to 8080.

All I have to do is test it while I'm in work tomorrow.

Bye for now.

OK. It didn't work when I tried from my workplace today. I'm not sure if
the problem was at my end or at my workplace.

I typed in "MMS://[My IP Address]:8080". Without the quotes and brackets
obviously.

Windows Media Player started. I then got a dialogue box requesting username
and password. I thought this may have been my router username and password,
so I tried it.

I then got an error dialogue box stating "Invalid name: mmsu://[My IP
Address]:8080/. The file name specified is incorrect. (Error=C00D001C)"

"You do not have access to the location or file. (Error=80070005)"

"Cannot open. Please verify that the path and filename are correct and try
again. (Error=80070005)"

There was a "More Help" button which took me to this web address:
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=http://s...

I looked at the information here but Ididn't really know what it was telling
me.

My next step I think is to try and get somebody else to connect and see what
happens. If it works for them then I know the problem lies at work, if not,
it's a problem at my end.

We will see.

try it http://yourIP:8080/
sounds like your router remote access is enabled on port 8080

Hi Ian,

Hmm you are correct with the command line. It is mms://your ip:8080 (like
you did when you were at home)
I'm 100% sure the dialogue popup is the one from your router. It WILL NOT
work if you do not forward port 8080 in it, as the router will not know what
to do with 8080 when you connect to it!

Not sure what router you are using, but try to "portmap" 8080 to your PC ip!
To get your PC IP, go to (in windows XP) Start > Run and type in the open
box "command" (no quotes) and Click on OK.
No type in the command.com window "IPCONFIG"
You will see some data. The IP Address..... line will show you the IP of
your PC

Now login to your router, and find a something saying Port Range forwarding
or Port Forwarding (again I have no clue what type of router you are using,
so you are on your own here!)
Enter in the port forwarding from the router the 8080 port and the IP of
your PC (the one you got with the IPCONFIG command)

The best thing to do (after setting the router) is call a friend and get him
to try and connect and test it!

Good luck again!

Noël

OK, now I'm stuck.

I have no idea what you are talking about. I have nothing called Port Range
forwarding or Port Forwarding.

I'm using a NetGear FR114P. The only part Ports are mentioned is in the
"Services" settings and "Remote Management Settings". The phrase "Port
Forwarding" doesn't appear any where.


Services

Service Table
# Name Type Ports (TCP or UDP)




----------------------------------------------------------------------------
--------------------------------------
Remote Management

Turn Remote Management On

Allow remote access by:
Everyone (Ensure password is assigned!)
IP address range : From ...
To ...

Only this PC: ...

Port Number:

IP Address to connect to this device: 000.000.000.000



Any ideas where I go from here??

Hmm I've never played with a FR114P, but I think it's working with "rules"
(something like inbound/outbound services eg http for allowing/blocking and
set up
logging for these.)

Let me try to get some more info about this NetGear for you.

I think I found the information here
http://kbserver.netgear.com/kb_web_files/N101145.asp

Although it doesn't mention my particular model the FR114W and FM114P are
very similar.

I only hope I've put the correct settings in.

Outbound:
Service Name- (I called it WME9) Port 8080 TCP/UDP
Action- ALLOW Always
LAN Users- Any
WAN Servers- Any
Log- Always

Inbound:
Service Name- (I called it WME9) Port 8080 TCP/UDP
Action- ALLOW Always
LAN Server IP address- 192.168.***.***
WAN Users- Any
Log- Always

Does this sound good??

Here you go:
http://kbserver.netgear.com/kb_web_files/N101145.asp#FR...

Basically you will only need to create an "Inbound Rule", but some routers
also need an "Outbound rule" to get a port forward to work.
When you create this rule, make sure that you set it to allow always!
Also, make sure that you enter the IP nr. of the PC that the Windows Media
Encoder is running on in the "Send to LAN Server" box!
(the IP that you got with the IPCONFIG command)

When you have setup the "New Rule", you will also need to "add a service" to
it.
Make one for TCP and make one for UDP.
Enter as "lowest port" 8080, and as "highest port 8090.

That's all I have for now. I'll see if I can get some more info for you
about this tomorrow if needed.

Again good luck!

Noël

Haha... you beat me to it with one minute!

Yes.. your settings look okay to me!

What you could do now to test it is connect to your stream through a proxy!
Not sure if you know how to do this. If not.. than this will be your next
lessen.. but... some other time :-)

Connecting to my stream through a proxy?? Sounds interesting.

Meanwhile, I'm gonna find a mug to test my setup for me. If any of them are
awake :) 

Bye for now

I don't quite know what's going on here. The people I've asked to connect
to my camera can't.

They are using earlier versions of Windows Media Player, do you have to have
Windows Media Player 9 to view it?

Hi Ian, still a no go?

re: They are using earlier versions of Windows Media Player, do you have to
have Windows Media Player 9 to view it?

It depends what codec you are using to encode the stream! If you go to
Properties > Compression > Edit, you will see what codec you are using!
I'm using for my stream (webcam.kijk.info) the 7 version (old) as this can
be accessed with the new and old windows media player!
If you encode with the version 9 codec, the old players will not work, but
should ask the user if he wants to update to the new version!

I've been trying to access your cam sometimes this week (got your IP from
the headers here), but did not have any luck!
I'm 100% sure something is not setup correct in your firewall/router!

Yes this could be the case!

Try using an other port (like 200) and make a new "rule" in your
firewall/router for this!

Than get your friends to try to connect to it ( mms://your_real_ip:200 )
I'm about 99% sure that this will work.

Aha!!

Found something interesting here. My local IP address changes. One day it
may be 192.168.0.2, the next day it may be 192.168.0.3. I think it depends
on which computer is booted first.

Now if I create an inbound service with 192.168.0.2 I cannot create another
service with 192.168.0.3. It states that "Same port can not be mapped
twice".

So, where do I go from here??

I've just changed the port to 200 as you suggested and changed the codec to
Windows Media Player V7.

We'll have to see if this works.

Assign a static internal IP address to each computer in the

192.168.x.x is a LAN IP address. Bring up a command window
and enter "ipconfig" to find your external, Internet IP address. Enter
that with "http://" prefixed and port number appended into the
"Open URL..." window of Windows Media Player.

Sounds good, but how do I do it??

I'm not really familiar with networks, I just use my router to share my
internet connection, other than that I know nothing about networks.

I got this part, but I need to setup an "inbound service" within my router
settings which is difficult when the local LAN IP address keeps changing
from day to day.

As mentioned before my router states "Same port can not be mapped twice".

Ok Ian, this could also be the problem!

So what's next..

1st open a command windows again (start > run >command) and type IPCONFIG
/ALL
You will see a lot of data, but what we need is the IP address, the subnet
mask, the Default Gateway and the DNS servers
Make a note of this and close the command box again (type exit, or click on
the X)

2nd. Go to Start > Control Panel > Network Connections and right click on
"Local Area Connections".
Select properties. In the "General" tab you will see "This connection uses
the following items:" Scroll down in it to "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and
select it (click on it) Now select "Properties".

What we are going to do now is set a fixed IP for that PC.
Select "Use the following IP address:"
In the IP address box enter the IP you got from the IPCONFIG / ALL command
Do the same for the Subnet mask, Default gateway and preferred DNS server

Click on OK and OK again to close the "Local Area Connection" window.

Your PC will now have that FIXED IP.

See if you can still access websites. Is so.. you did well.. if not you
might have missed something :-)
(If for some reason you can not get it to work, go back to step 2 and set
everything back to "Obtain an IP address automatically" and "Obtain DNS
server automatically")

Now go back in your router/firewall, delete the rule you made for the IP,
and make a new one for the IP your streaming server is using now (if it's
the same IP as the rule there is no need to delete it)

Make sure you use the correct port!

Again good luck!

Noël

Fingers crossed here.

I've now set it up so my PC has a fixed IP and amended the settings on my
router.

I'm hoping that you'll be able to connect using port 200 now.

If you can't see anything then I've still got a problem somewhere.

I didn't realise setting up a webcam was so complicated.

Ops!!

Something else I've forgotten to mention. I'm running Zonealarm too but
I've allowed Windows Media Encoder 9Access and Server rights, i.e. a check
mark in all boxes, so I assume that this shouldn't affect any attempted
connection, right??
