Add IP Camera as a video source

Here you can select an IP camera as a ManyCam video source. By default, the list is empty until an IP camera URL or IP addresses are entered.

To add a new camera to the list, click the “Add IP Camera” button in the IP Cameras window and define a new IP camera in the dialog which will appear. The only mandatory field is “IP Camera URL” which is the actual address of the IP camera. The name is used only for your IP cameras list – you may write something like “My backyard” or “CentralPark”. Search Google for a list of available IP cameras on the web.

IP cameras can produce video streams in various formats. ManyCam can work only with Motion Jpeg (also known as mjpeg or mjpeg). Motion Jpeg is the most common format that every IP camera has available. Unfortunately IP camera owners sometimes do not enable the Motion Jpeg or MJPEG option to make ManyCam work. Be sure and enable MJPEG mode with your IP Camera and it should work fine with ManyCam.
