YAWCAM (or WD LIVE Streaming video) on my site???
« on: December 22, 2010, 12:45:53 PM »
Not sure where to get started, but currently I use the Carterlake template set for my site.....I'd like to embedd a live stream using YAWCAM program into a site page, but I have no idea how to do it. I tried using WMP embedded but errors show up saying I'm broadcast the wrong file type?
Thanks,

Chris

Well I would certainly be interested in the solution. I am using Yawcam now and have attempted the streaming in the past with little luck.

Well if you want to stream from the computer that has Yawcam on it you need to get a Domain name for your computer I got mine from DynDNS.org

then you have to choose a stream port in Yawcam I have mine set to 8081
If you have a router you need to open that port to the web
course you have to turn on streaming in Yawcam

 to view you just need to put http://your domain name:8081
in your browser and it should open up your Yawcam in the browser.

Course you might want to setup password under password in Yawcam

I'm using an older ver of Yawcam as I found it easier to setup more then one camera.

I've reached the part where I can see , from another computer via the net, a live picture, but I would like to use Windows Media Player to broadcast for viewing. YAWCAM streams using Java, and no matter how I set WMP its not correct.
Thanks,

Chris

Well guess your got to fine a windows media player person. Just hate it when you have an Idea that there just is not the right software to put it together.

Thank you....www.bucksweather.com/wx2cam.php

Open the viewer but no matter what I put in for the IP, whether from WD or YAWCAM its blank...


If a person just puts in the address "http://173.49.55.42:8081" all works fine........just not in the carterlake set...
Thanks,

Chris

Change your IP values in the script

from http://173:49:55:42:8888

to

http://173.49.55.42:8888


dots not colons in your IP address, then the colon for the port #

I see it's connecting but thats as far as it gets.

Do you have a router and did you open up port 8081 for the livestream?
