DCS-9XXL - Display Live Video on a Personal Website
« on: August 07, 2012, 01:56:35 PM »

This procedure illustrates an HTML code snippet that can be included in a personal website to display a live video stream from a DCS-930L or DCS-932L camera. This code may work with additional D-Link DCS IP cameras, but was only tested on the DCS-930L and DCS-932L as of the posting of this thread.


  • Configure the DCS-9XXL and host router for port forwarding (and keep note of the WAN IP and port number)
  • Create non-admin username and password
  • Provide the non-admin username and password to individuals who will view the live video (i.e. viewing the live video via a website will require username and password authentication)
  • Replace myWANip (highlighted below) with the WAN IP address
  • Replace port# (highlighted below) with the DCS-9XXL port number. The port number refers to the external port number forwarded from the router (if different from the DCS-9XXL).
  • To add multiple cameras, duplicate the code between (and including) the first instance of <tr> and last instance of </tr> (both highlighted below)
