D-Link Portal no longer works with Safari 12
« on: October 09, 2018, 07:32:17 PM »

Have been running Mac OS 10.12 to remotely view our D-Link cloud cameras. D-Link portal worked fine with Safari v11, but a recent upgrade to Safari v12 results in a failed login, displaying the following: "Unsupported Browser or Operating System Detected!". A link on the page to install a plug-in does not complete with a 'Plugin install failed' message. Downgrading to the previous, working version of Safari is not a practical option on this machine.

Looking for solutions to resume working with Safari v12. Thanks in advance.

Does it work for other browsers, ie IE11 or FF?

Safari 12 jumped on the firefox bandwagon and removed java and other NPAPI plugin support.  ::)

Well it is 2018 and web developers should be using HTML 5. Just saying...

We've been waiting on D-Link for a while now already Sir.  ::)

Users can use FF ESR v52.9 as a fall back. IE11 in Windows for now as well. Hoping that D-Link will make there items compatible for the future.  :o

Understand. That appears to be the case with a few other browsers as well, and looks to be the trend.

I've tried to find FF ESR v52, but no luck so far. The links I have found to download v52 actually bring down the current ESR version which doesn't support the plugin.

In the meantime, is there a method or an application that will directly access the camera's video? My cameras sit behind a D-Link router and are not connected to an NVR. If no other alternatives, the cameras I'm using are pretty much useless at the moment. As always, thanks in advance.

Are you viewing from outside your home or only locally?   If you have a smartphone or ipad, download the mydlink Lite or mydlink app. Sign in with your current mydlink account info and your cameras will show up (no need to reinstall).

You can try the following URLs in a browser:

IPADDRESS = the IP address of your camera (if viewing from inside your local network, or your router's WAN/Internet IP address if viewing from outside.
The port number is set in the camera's web UI. If viewing from outside your network, you will have to create port forwarding rules in your router (open port to the local IP address of the camera).

GreenBay, thanks for the links to FireFox ESR 52, very helpful and allows me to keep viewing the cams on the Mac. I'll follow up on the direct access soon.
