DCS-932L works with IP Cam Viewer on iPad. 

I can confirm that this software works and supports audio also.

I have had no end of issues with myDlink and this software has not given me any issues in comparison.

If you are having problems connecting your camera (or multiple cameras) this software could be a good replacement.

Thank you for the feedback. From reading these boards, many DCS-930L and DCS-932L owners (myself included) had difficulty finding a third party product that captured the audio stream. Good to know that a product exists that can do just that.  ;)

This app for OSX (Mac) computers, NVRViewer, works well with my DCS-930L cameras:
http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/nvr-viewer/id412795760
It's free to view streams from multiple cameras and record from one camera.  Recording from multiple cameras is a $9.99 upgrade.  It has it's own motion detection options which I haven't tried. Also, audio is not supported.

We would like to introduce our new "over the internet" recording service that has been tested with the DCS-930L and DCS-932L network cameras known as RavenShoeSecurity.com. We think we would be a good candidate for your list and would be happy to send you a coupon if you would like to try it out.

Our service receives and catalogs motion activated snapshot images from network camera(s) over the Internet via ftp and provides secure access through any web browser (PC, Mac, or Smart Phone). Retrieved images are assembled into a video clip on the fly for easy viewing. All images are cataloged by day and hour.

Service Plans start at $4.95 per month for a quota of 10,000 images with unlimited cameras and unlimited sharing. When the quota is reached the system automatically re-cycles the storage space by removing the oldest images to make room for the new ones. You'll always have the last 10,000 pictures received from your network camera(s) safely stored in our cloud computing facility no matter what may happen to your camera(s).

Aside from viewing of archived images, does your product/service offer live video stream viewing and/or capture?

The RavenShoeSecurity.com service does not offer live viewing of the video stream or capturing of the video stream. However we do capture the snapshot stream. Live viewing of the video stream can be nicely handled by MyDlink.com. The RavenShoeSecurity.com and MyDLink.com services can be used at the same time without issue.

The RavenShoeSecurity.com system records the last 10,000 JPEG snapshots received from the camera over the Internet. There is no DVR, dedicated PC, camera management software, or other "on-site" appliance. Just a network camera, power, and Internet (WiFi or Ethernet).

If a DCS-930L or DCS-932L (our favourite) is setup as per our recommendations the system typically receives 1 to 3 snapshots per second when there is high activity. When viewed online, these images are assembled back into a video, which gives a clear depiction of what is going on. Snapshots are transmitted over the Internet fast - so viewing the latest images gives the latest information - within a few seconds. Snapshots are also low bandwidth - so retrieval over a lower bandwidth connection works well.

There also are some nifty playback features that will compress an entire day or an entire hour into a clip that lasts 20 seconds. This lets a person do a Quick View of a period of time to check for images of interest.

For recording we recommend the DLink DCS-942L with a micro SD. Set the motion detection to trigger a) sending snapshots to our service and b) recording video clips to the on-board micro SD at the same time. If you see images of interest on RavenShoeSecurity.com then you can use MyDlink.com to retrieve the video clip (with sound). The time stamp on the snapshot will line up with the time stamp on the video clip making cross referencing snapshots and video clips easy. Essentially our service becomes a snapshot index of the video clips that are physically stored in the camera on an SD.

One feature we do have that seems quite unique is unlimited camera sharing on a person by person basis. Enter another person's email address into the box provided on your RavenShoeSecurity.com home page and that person is invited to view the images from your cam. You can delete and black-out camera shares on a individual by individual basis.

And you can have as many cameras as you like as long as they all have unique names. And your cameras can be anywhere in the world where there is Internet service.
