Web Application Manager

I am trying to view my security cameras remotely online. This previously worked with IE8, but not with Firefox or IE9. Is there an extension or plugin available as a work around?

Re: Web Application Manager

If there is no other way to control that camera then via an ActiveX control like a Java applet then you are out of luck. ActiveX controls are only supported by IE and not by other browsers. There may be security issues if it doesn't work with IE9.

Re: Web Application Manager

You need to determine if that equipment requires ActiveX to work.

Brand and model of that hardware?

Re: Web Application Manager

According to this page for that device, that DVR runs a Linux operating system - which won't be using ActiveX, which is a Windows "thing"..

DVR Description:

This embedded DVR possesses the following specifications: Soft hardware platform: embedded micro-controller and LINUX system, high stability; Standardizing coding algorithm: standard H.264 algorithm; ...
I wonder if your problem has to do with H.264 not being supported by Mozilla (yet)?

Try this extension for WMP on Firefox. It should work if that device uses HTML5 for its' output pages.

Thanks to both for your prompt replies. It looks like I am stuck. Thanks

Re: Web Application Manager

I honestly can't see how a device that is running Linux can use ActiveX. What have you read that says you need an ActiveX control?

How about doing a right-click on one of those cam pages and doing a View Source or View Page Source and copy / paste the source code here?

Re: Web Application Manager

The device runs on Linux, but the computer that controls the device via network connection can be controlled by an ActiveX control.
Both are entirely separated and if they only provide an ActiveX control then there is not much to do.
You may be able to receive the stream if something like an MMS stream is send and you know the IP and port that is used.

Sorry just got home. Won't be back in that location till next Tuesday. Will have a look then. I just remember a year ago when I went to view online I htought it asked me about AxtiveX. But honestly I am not 100% sure. Maybe 60%...or 40%. But will view again and do what you have said then re-post.

Re: Web Application Manager

Thanks I just replied to ed-meister about where I am at. I am pretty sure I know the IP address's etc. But the rest sounds above my level of knowledge. I have a tech I have used in the past so once I confirm if Active X is required I will ring him.
