When I point to ip address/port to view cctv security I get the tab "netvideo" but a blank screen (no video). Is there an application/cab needed to view netvideo tab?
Connecting a h.264 DVR security camera system to remote viewing through my ip address/port. This works with ie but not with firefox. On ie I get a similar tab "netvideo" and a window opens showing my DVR connection, cameras, and can operate all remotely. On Firefox I just get the "netvideo" tab but a white blank screen. The application needed to show/operate my DVR is missing from firefox. How can I make the connection operate with firefox? Seen somewhere that firefox is missing a cab for this?
Sorry, Mozilla doesn't support the patent-encumbered and royalty-encumbered H.264 standard, they support the OGG/Theodora and WebM free open source standards.
Microsoft has a H.264 plugin for Firefox, but it is for Windows7 not WinXP or Win Vista.
There may be other H.264 Firefox plugins out there for WinXP, so do a Google search. Or maybe contact support for that DVR security system and see if they know of or have a Firefox plugin.
