    Default CCTV on PPC?

    What would be the best way to display live video feed (not a video file or refreshing stills) on a pocket pc?

    I'm trying to view a cctv camera that is connected to an ip doodah on my network...

    Anyone doing this already or got any ideas? Trying to steer clear of web browsing into it as the internal webserver on the doohdah looks pants.

    Pointers to any suitable app's would be most appreciated!

    Can the embedded VLC player cope with this perhaps?

    I'm fairly sure that there isn't a version of VLC for the PocketPC unfortunately.

    I have NetRemote launch Axis CameraStation on my Dell Axim x51v PDA's. It works pretty well, though I don't think I get more than about 1fps for the video. When the user clicks the "x" to close CameraStation, NetRemote is still running, so they return right back to the full screen NetRemote interface.

    Cheers,
    Tim

    Cheers Tim - How very crafty!

    Does anyone know of any app that can be accessed via web browser & doesn't use javascript but does have a fast-ish refresh rate????

    I would quite like to view the camera within NR to keep things consistant in the gui...

    Hmm.. might be worth looking for one that uses Flash, then you could use the flash plugin on a PPC.

    Try WebCam XP it has a PPC client and it supports all sort of analog and IP cameras.
