In case you are not able to see a video when accessing the camera via Firefox, Chrome, etc. under Windows, open the Quicktime Player preferences and set the protocol to HTTP and the port to 80.
To set the Quicktime HTTP port in MacOSX please open the Terminal in Applications/Utilities and type in the command qtdefaults write TransportSettings "HTTP" "80" to set the port to 80.
To access your camera over the internet, you have to forward the HTTP Port inside your router (default “80”). To access the Flash Videostream inside the WebUI, you also have to forward the RTMP Port (default “1935”) see also 14 below
Now you can enter your camera´s DDNS information to our free Windows Phone, Windows Metro, Android, iPhone, iPad or Blackberry App.
If you cannot open a port for camera´s DDNS service, you can still use the Point-2-Point Service instead with our Windows Phone, Windows Metro, Android, iPhone, iPad or Blackberry App.
