Is there some way to make the camera 930L accessible to the public without requiring the owner's mydlink password?  It seems if you give out the password anyone could take control of your account by changing the password.  Is there some other way to accomplish this?

Unfortunately no. mydlink does not presently support guest accounts. To the best of my knowledge, mydlink does not provide a means for providing unrestricted access to the streaming video separate from the credentials required to view/change the camera settings.

Not with my Dlink, but you could setup your own DDNS and port forward to the camera.  I also thought you can setup a different password for accessing the cameras settings than what you use for MyDlink???

I would suggest for you to change your password from time to time if you can't find any other solution. You could always reset your Dlink in case someone takes control of it.

Unfortunately, short of carefully monitoring network activity, there's no easy way to determine whether a camera was hijacked. Since the DCS series continually broadcasts, in theory, the camera can be hacked outside of mydlink as well.

Dlink says "We have reviewed your feedback for Case. ... The mydlink portal only supports one account. If you want others to see your camera then you will need to provide them with your mydlink account"

Giving out your password then gives the guest permission to change the password in MyProfile!
This is unacceptable.

No arguments here. . . This is not an acceptable means of sharing.  This system needs independent login credentials, with independently configured permissions.

How does one use the "Add User Account" options on the camera itself?  Is this not a way to provide access?

Also, can the camera be registered under more than one mydlink account?

The account options you are referring to are for direct access via the web interface and third party applications requiring log in credentials.
