I loved this app until I bought a HIKVISION NVR and Camera's. Stand alone it works flawlessly with TinyCam Monitor and or a browser. I had two camera's running, one a Samsung S4 Mini, the other a HTC Desire X for about 6 months and they have been fantastic. Unfortunately IP WebCam's MJPEG protocol doesn't appear to be compatible with the HIKVISION NVR so I will most likely have to replace them with more HIKVISION camera's which is disappointing. Thanks to the developer for a great product.
At first I thought this was a great app. Easy to set up and view. However, after a few weeks I've noticed that the camera simply goes off line without anything being done to it. One day I'll log in and find it working, the next day it'll be offline. Very unreliable. Update: for some reason it is no longer "buggy." The app runs without shutting down. Not sure why. Everything is good. Would like to be able to record longer than 30 sec when motion is detected.
Paul Jeff's review is simply wrong and he doesn't know what he's talking about. He needs to enable port forwarding on his router to view "remotely" when not on his local network. I can view my camera remotely with no issues at all using nothing more than a Chrome browser, my home's WAN address and the port number I configured the camera to listen on. I do not need any additional apps from the developer.
This app is nice as a concept but it does not work as a real solution. Please refund me. It stops broadcasting randomly or it pops on the screen for no reason. Cannot rely on it. as a reply to my refund request, this is what google has to say: If you’re requesting refunds for an app (or in-app), it’s best to get help directly from the app’s developer. Developer contact information can be found in the Google Play store by searching for the app and scrolling down to "Additional Information."
I love the app, and it seems to work well. I figured out that the screen having to be on is a "feature" of Android, and not the fault of IP Webcam. Zoom worked on my HTC Aria, but for some reason it doesn't work on my HTC One m7. The image on the camera screen zooms, but not the video stream coming through the webpage. Probably another issue with Android not working right. Regardless, I love this app.
Works like a charm Used the free for a couple of days to find my cat, decided it was worth the $4 & got pro. Dragged out old Motorola phone and Motorola Xoom installed it and found my cat. Recorded more than 8 hours on both, no issues.
