Webcam in mobile web app
« on: June 16, 2014, 09:40:22 AM »

Anyone know the coding to show a webcam in the mobile app?  Need it for android and iOS.  Also, needing it to show just the picture/video, not all the options you would get when you login from the web.  Any help would be HUGE.   I'm using phonegap to create my app for those wondering.

I can get the picture to work in my browser on my computer with the coding I have now, but not on the actual android phone.  I can send my files to someone willing to help.   Bounty could be included.

I can't even do that. Do you go to a URL or do you have to write an html page?

The app is a web app which I have since decided not to do since the app stores only accept native apps.  I have moved on to try to create a mobile friendly website first.  If it works and catches on I will make native apps.

In the following html, change URL:port# to whatever web address and cam port number you use, save to your server with some name (fx. myowncam.htm), the call it from your Android browser. Provides virtually live video.

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">

<head>

<body>
<script type="text/javascript">
<!--
var refreshrate=0.5;  //SECONDS BETWEEN REFRESH
var image="http://URL:port#/image/jpeg.cgi";  //IMAGE NAME
var imgheight=480;  //IMAGE HEIGHT
var imgwidth=640;   //IMAGE WIDTH
function refresh(){
document.images["pic"].src=image+"?"+new Date();
setTimeout('refresh()', refreshrate*1000);}
document.write('<IMG SRC="'+image+'" ALT="" NAME="pic" ID="pic" WIDTH="'+imgwidth+'" HEIGHT="'+imgheight+'"  STYLE="border: 1px solid Black;">');
if(document.images)window.onload=refresh;
// -->
</script>
</body>
</html>

Can this work on any browser/computer or does it have to be Android?

Works on Windows PC, Firefox and IE, possibly more. Have only tested it on my android device (Firefox) but working to test it with an off-shore friend with iPad and a laptop with Chrome and who has no clue how to enable javascript, - poor soul. More later!

UPDATE : Works with iPad !!

Note : Users should be given separate non-admin User and Password credentials in the cam, MAINTENANCE/Admin/ADD USER ACCOUNT.

- and I shouldn't really take much credit for the code. Can't remember where I found it first but it's been around for years. Similar versions re-discovered here (http://sandaysoft.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=2910) and here (http://cowboyfrank.net/javascript.htm).

Cheers.

Umm, I didn't mean watching Niagara Falls. I meant my DCS-930L looking out the window!

The DCS-930L is an inexpensive low-end cam, but talk to D-Link directly. Perhaps one of their higher end cams come with the features you want. Specify you need no fuss and no mess !

Good luck,

Cheers.

Actually, this feature is supposedly available now but it doesn't work for me. Does it work for you? I'd think anybody would want to have it.

Hey, let us know why you think a no-fuss-no-mess (NFNM) feature is available and why it doesn't work for you, - i.e. what are you doing to establish that it, if exists, doesn't work?
 
Cheers,
