Title: Best Applications/Software to view all the dlink DCS cameras
Post by: MacUser on March 07, 2017, 01:17:55 AM
My house has six wireless drink cameras, and two of them are 2630L.  What is the best software for viewing two or more cameras simultaneously on:

1.  My Mac computer  (OS 10.95 and OS 10.11) ?

2.  Android ?

3.  Pad ?

4.  PC ?

I have tried Security Spy on my Mac laptop.  It's pretty good, but seems to have issues with the  2630L, but displays the other drink models fine.

I thought my iPad "My Dlink plus"  had a multi camera view.  I updated the IOS and now it shows only one camera video with each camera selected.  How to get multi-cam view?

I prefer each cam in Internet Explorer.

You could try Dviewcam on pc.

I use Safari on Mac and Mydlink Lite on iPhone mostly.

DVC is for capturing video streams to a PC, however it's only supported on a Windows platform.  ::)

But Safari allows viewing only one camera.  Do you open more than one window?

You can open more than one tab. Each tab in Safari can be a different site or camera.

Sure, but they cannot be watched simultaneously if you use tabs.  Is there a dlink app for Mac which will show at least four cam views at once?

This Security Spy works very well on the Mac, except on the 2630L:  http://www.bensoftware.com/securityspy/  Has easy setup, video capture, etc.  If the 2630L images were perfected, Security Spy would be fine.

Would love to find an alternate software for the Mac.  The best and smoothest images so far are on mydlink.com  and second best by URL/IP in a browser.

Oh, Furry.   The mydlink app on the iPad DOES have a multi cam view!!  Just touch the icon in the upper right.  Very nice.
