PC or Laptop (Windows) USB cam as a security camera

I think Firefox did that on it’s own after the first time I clicked on proceed anyway. I changed bookmarks for both cameras to use https. I know I can access them all from the home page in the browser but I prefer to load each camera seperately. :joy:

Oh and btw, if you have noticed the max buffer size is saying MAX xGB (lower than you want) but you want to extend videos using the “split longer than” setting. Just increase the pagefile size on the system running ContaCam.

Well, I went ahead and setup the access to the recordings for when I am away. It is really cool to have the actual ContaCam recordings available rather than the crappy motion detection of the Oswoo lol. I even added a shortcut to my Android home screen that loads up both cameras and I can tap on which one I want to check the recordings. I have Alfred protecting the server and more, with the IP Cams watching even more. All humming perfectly now.


@AccessDenied Alfred protecting the server, what a fantastic idea my friend

@platinumj615 you can do it many ways. If you are referring to using Alfred on your PC then you need to install an Android emulator. If you want another method where you take full advantage of your hardware for free with no ads or subscription then all the information is in this thread

Alfred is awesome right

@trextron5 Alfred Can certainly serve a purpose.
Just seems to require a lot of supervision lately.

I think you have a good case for an Alfred subscription then you can utilize the zoom feature.

Wait…? Link was removed? Was it a bad link? I guess Google will be my friend.

Thanks, pinky-free-user. Interestingly enough, I. can see the original post (which I wasn’t seeing before). Now I don’t even see the post I was talking about at all. If it was a conflict of interest thing, I would think that the OP would have been the one to be censored.

@4d4328a11d3f0dfe514e it’s ok the program is referred to in the thread you just need to browse through.

Thanks, not sure what that is for but thanks non the less.
