Camstream alternative?
« on: January 18, 2015, 11:50:03 PM »
I have been using Imagesalsa and Camstream Applet V1.5 to stream my webcams for years without a hitch but have noticed that it will not work with android phones and others.  Has anyone put together a newer script that can be used on multiple platforms and work with Imagesalsa?

Steve,

Not sure this will help because I can't get any more on my desktop browser (FF 34), but I get my stream via Dolphin w/ Jetpack browser for android.

Hi George and thanks.  I have seen that and it works but for a lot of the viewers of my web sites it's an unknown step for them to take.  With adobe flash no longer being available for android I can see this as being more and more of a problem.  It still works fine in windows but figured I would start looking for alternatives.

Webcam 7 streams can be used on Android and desktop. I've got my cams streaming with it.

Yes I have looked at it but I have almost 30 cameras and don't know if it would handle it.  I like Imagesalsa because it is very stable and handles my system very well and does everything that I want.  If need be I would look into switching but guess I am I die hard with IS since I have been using it from the beginning since Jason made it.

I can verify Netcam studio also does work with android. For some reason webcam7 I'm now having issues with streaming anything outside my network. Something I don't understand most likely in the generated html even though it was working last night.

Chris from Capeweather here on the forums has quite a few running on Webcam 7 I believe.

Well I did some looking around and found a Ajax script that might due the trick.  I have it up and running on my server and seems to work fine with my android phone along with IE, Firefox and Chrome but since I have no Apple stuff I would like to know if it works on there systems also.  Can some one check and see if it is working with Apple products?  The web address is http://weather.athelstanewi.com/streamtest.php .  If it works I plan to clean up the code and use it on my site.  The script is limited to 1 frame per second but I don't see that as a problem.  I have looked at other webcam software and find that there isn't anything that compares to Imagesalsa so hoping to breath new life into it.

It also seems to be taking a long time to load my weather homepage loads way faster than the page you linked to on your site.

Sorry about that!  I was doing some cleaning on that computer before I head home and had it down.  It should be up now.
