fullscreen-image of an IP-Camera?


I already searched the forum and google, but haven’t found an answer yet.

I want to access an IP-camera over http and have its picture fullscreen. Maybe not a big deal, but how to do it?
Is there a browser which can do it? Since mine can’t, I thought using max. The internal software of the camera doesnt give me that option either. (It is a mobotix m24).
With the jit.qt.movie I only get weired information into the jit.window but no image. Accessing the camera with jweb is no problem, but how do I “extract” the image to show it fullscreen. (and maybe later do some other stuff with it… :) )

I don’t need to record it, for now it is just for presentation.

Thanx for a hint.

Hello Mr. l.

I don’t know the exact answer to your question but i think i might be able to offer some insight (plus i hope you could give me some insight :). I think the reason why the jweb is showing and the jit.qt.movie isn’t is because the ip-camera is probably broadcasting a “complete package” so to speak (image+html-code probably). While the jit.qt.movie is just looking for the image. Have you looked at the source code of the http? There probably is a link to the direct image-feed somewhere. Try connecting this to jit.qt.movie.

for example:

This is the link you should be looking for

Btw. Did you try jit.uldl? That might help to.


Now for my question; There’s a ip-camera in the building where i live and i want it’s feed :) Now how do you recognize an ip-camera in wifi-traffic (i have whireshark so i can monitor lan/wan) Does it broadcast a SSID? Thanks.

Hi mr.I & FRid,

I'm working with IPcam and the only way I've found is … to use Quartz Composer and CoGeWebKit external. here is a screenshot example displaying some reduced webcam image ( you can reduce or go fullscreen,mask,rotate transform … like in Jitter). In jitter it's not possible because of Quicktime, so jit.qt.movie is useless for this kind of task.

Hey Frid,
take a look at this link : http://recyclism.com/twopointfour.php
this guy, Benjamin Gaulon, hacks wifi cam’s with a modified video reciever which can scan from 2,3ghz to 2.5ghz. Perhaps he could help you

Thanks for the link Filippo! That is %$@!-brilliant! Hadn’t expected the audio and the distortion (for audio as well as video :) What is a bummer is the fact that it needs external equipment. I have to start saving again…


U probably know it already but brilliant;
