I setup a live camera out the 3rd floor window. You can access the live video feed here:

http://172.27.35.86

I'm working on getting the DNS working so the address may change. The DNS address is:

calle84.no-ip.biz

username = poorbuthappy
password = colombia

Enjoy!

You might want to re-check that one as well, Brian... or is it just my shitty Icelandic Internet connection?

Cheers,

i am in colombia and it says that website is not available.

Posted on November 9, 2009


Ok, I'll check it from the neighbors connection tomorrow. Maybe the router is blocking the access.

Posted on November 9, 2009


you may have to open some ports on your router for the feed to go public access.

Posted on November 9, 2009


well, I put the network camera on the DMZ; so all ports should be open. I updated the DNS to:

http://calle84.mine.nu

I'm able to ping it from the Internet. I'll work on it more tomorrow.

Who is your internet provider and what kind of equiptment are you using? Camera, router, do you own an IP address? You might need to use a different port than 80 like 1024 or 1025 etc

Posted on November 9, 2009


The web address you entered is not available[more information]
You were trying to go to calle84.mine.nu

Do some port forwarding.

Posted on November 9, 2009


i'm not able to connect either on either IP. Ironically, I also setup a live camera here last week - and I am on Telmex as well (your IP address belongs to cable.net.co which is Telmex). While my download speed is 8000 kb my upload is 400kb and with all my other traffic I didn't have the bandwidth for a Java based camera doing real time video.

As mentioned above, you need to open up port forward on your router and consider using a dynamic DNS provider since the Telmex address changes frequently. I am using dyndns.org and the router every hour give the current IP address so it's always reflected in the DNS.

Can someone try it now? Looks to be working on my end. Here is the logon info:

http://190.84.167.89 or http://calle84.mine.nu

username = poorbuthappy

-------------------------------------------------------------
Larryn- I setup the same logon info for you as in California.

Posted on November 9, 2009


the first one goes to a blank screen, the second one goes to a panasonic flash screen with the version number displayed.

I am in Cartagena

Here is the working link: http://calle84.mine.nu/CgiStart?page=Single&Language=0

ok that one works....i had to install some popup, but there is an orange building across the street?. is that where Darloup lives? jajajjaj

Posted on November 9, 2009


Cool! - I just changed the video from 320x240 to 640x480. How is the clarity?

Posted on November 9, 2009


Clarity is fine Brian, looks good! Nice job.

Now, if you can move the camera down to the beach, that would be perfect... ;-)

Cheers,
Terry

Hey I watched your live feed today..Pretty cool. You should do it on www.blogtv.com. there is like 1000 of people on there every day. I do the blog tv and watch blogtv. Its pretty cool. Check it out....

Posted on November 9, 2009


Cool feed, Brian858.

How about pointing your camera within your flat and not outside it? ;-)

Posted on November 9, 2009


Francijoe - What is the name of your live cam? I'll get lost in the 1000's of live feeds there.

Darloup- Not much to see inside the house. Pretty boring stuff as the camera is on the 3rd floor and nobody goes up there during the day as it's always 90 up there.

Posted on November 9, 2009


Hey Brian858, no offense intended, but there is not much to see outside the house either ;-)

Posted on November 9, 2009


Good job Brian, thanx.

But maybe you could set it up in your bedroom for him?

Photobucket

Posted on November 9, 2009


Sorry, Sloop, not much action in our bedroom. Nelly and I both prefer the shower cubicle or the park nearby.

The shower woud be too misty and the park much too public.

Posted on November 9, 2009


My user name is lilbitt30...I dont do a live feed like you but I get on and talk to people......do a search on the users name..

Posted on November 9, 2009


Francijoe, I signed up there and added you as a contact. I'm unable to stream my camera into that website as my camera is a stand alone network camera. It's connected via wired Ethernet directly to the router. That website is for people with webcams connected to their PC.

Posted on November 9, 2009


Brian, thanks for putting it up...

Trust me, after a few minutes, it becomes VERY boring to see the traffic on that street, but at least I do appreciate your having provided this live feed (no irony intended).

Plus you've learnt how to solve some technical questions in the process ;-)

Posted on November 9, 2009


Sure, No problem.

I'm thinking of putting it closer to the street and put a sign on it and add a microphone and speakers. Then you can chat with people that are walking down the street.

The main technical problem was I put the Ooma.com phone in front of the router and it was blocking all the ports that I had opened on the router. Now I'm doing my qos on the router for the VoIP traffic and limiting the bandwidth and adding delay to the video traffic. Video is a bandwidth hog and will use everything you give it.

Posted on November 9, 2009


Brian,

Where are you in BQA? (don't post it - PM me).

"I'm thinking of putting it closer to the street and put a sign on it and add a microphone and speakers. Then you can chat with people that are walking down the street."

Wow - ambitious ! But fun !

"Video is a bandwidth hog and will use everything you give it."

Try and refresh it every few seconds instead of on "move".

Posted on November 9, 2009


Darloup,

I'm in the North of BAQ about 6 blocks from Windsor Hotel.

I doubled the image size to 640x480 and decreased the update interval to 3 seconds. Taking the motion out of it makes it more dull no? How is the quality now?

Posted on November 9, 2009


I never got the 640x480 option yesterday, and I'm not sure it's really needed.

Try to increase the interval to 5 seconds (or more).

Trust me, the motion isn't THAT interesting ;-)

Posted on November 9, 2009


I sent you an e-mail to your Darloup.com account.

Posted on November 9, 2009


Brian: Right...

Posted on November 9, 2009


I added a thermometer to give this camera some useful purpose in life.

Posted on November 9, 2009


Really neat Brian.

Posted on November 9, 2009


'92F @ 11:23am here. When is it supposed to cool down here? They keep talking about these breezes that are supposed to cool the city down. also where is all the rain? I wish it would rain!

Posted on November 9, 2009


Brian858: Yeah, another heat wave in Barranquilla right now... Hang tight, the "trade winds" will come soon...

Posted on November 9, 2009


96F @ noon! This is ridiculous.

Posted on November 9, 2009


You're up to 98F now.

Posted on November 9, 2009


102F at 1pm. Time to head to the air conditioned mall.

Posted on November 9, 2009


Thank goodness, you're back down to 92F.

Posted on November 9, 2009


Darloup, the cam is back up. I've change to an indoor view with Thermometer inside. How is the video quality now?

Here is the final settings to connect to the camera. I've updated DNS with panasonic.

Camera is back online with the DNS address listed above. I had to call Panasonic support and sort out the DNS entry. The camera was bought from ebay and had been modified by BellSouth to work as a dedicated Security camera on their network. This is why the price was so low on Ebay. At Darloup's request I have changed the view to an indoor display. Let me know if indoors is more interesting than outdoors and I can change it back.

Posted on November 9, 2009


Hey Brian858, it was less a "request" than a subjective comment!

Posted on November 9, 2009


I'm here to appease all requests. Let me know if the camera is in a good position for you. Or should I move it? When are you going to call me for that Coffee?
