fullscreen-image of an IP-Camera?


    Jul 01 2010 | 5:05 pm
    Hey,
    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:
      original
      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
      Cheers

      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...
