Default [APP] RC Camera v2.1 for IP-cameras (AXIS, TRENDnet, Panasonic, Ipux, D-Link etc.)

RC Camera
~~~~~~~~~~~
version 2.1 Freeware
2009-10, Real Colonel

IP cameras monitoring software for Windows Mobile 6.x.

Download: rccamera21.zip



Application uses a jpeg-mode of a camera (to reduce the traffic).
The communication with the camera is accomplished by the use of CGI-commands.
The definite commands are set in the camera working profile. Included profiles allow
the communication with TRENDnet, AXIS, Edimax, Ipux, Panasonic, D-Link
and Linksys cameras.
The ability of setting user's profiles, let the application be set for any* IP-cameras,
supporting CGI-commands.

To set the connection to the camera up one should:
1. Fill in the parameters of your camera, choosing the ready
profile or setting a new one ("Menu/Settings" menu point).
2. Check them up ("check" button).
3. Add the new camera to sources list ("add" button).
4. Save the settings ("OK" menu point).
5. Tap on the menu point "Start" in the main window.

The basic operation can be chosen from the context menu (tap-and-hold).
A tap on the image renew it despoticly.
Double tapping on the picture switches the full-screen mode.
The folder for the saved snapshorts is set in the settings menu.
The sliding movement a finger on a screen can be use for operating a
camera's PTZ-control.

To display the program messages correctly in the localized versios of
the Windows Mobile, the resource files System_SR_ENU_wm.cab (for Compact
Framework 2.0) or NETCFv35.Messages.EN.wm.cab (for Compact Framework 3.5)
should be installed.

_
* Not all manufacturers publish information about the CGI-commands, which are used to communicate
with their IP-cameras. Probably for this reason, RC Camera could not be adapted to work with the
following cameras: SPARKLAN CAS-670W, Linksys WVC54G

Default Great App - How to use dyndns?

Thanks for creating the app, I can get it to work with an IP address, but I want to use my dyndns hostname and it wont work with that. I am not sure if is a format issue or if you only support IP addresses. Can you tell me how to use a dyndns address like "smith.dyndns.org"?

Thanx for your interest. and a bug reporting!
As it is just a BETA1, it is not completely tested yet(access by name too).
Please, give me a week to make some corrections.

Default Dyndns

Thanks for your efforts. I look forward to seeing the update. I have been using it to setup my camera and once connected it seems to be pretty robust.

I downloaded your update and the IP name works great. It did crash when I tried to delete the demo cameras from the list, but came right back when restarted. I deleted them before entering mine and it worked fine. The response time seems to be a little better than the first version. I tried 10 sec, 5 sec, and 1 sec updates. This is a slick application. Congrats on the effort. I hope you have time to continue tinkering.

In testing the beta3, when I go to full screen in landscape it appears there is no way to go back to the application on the screen. I see you have plans for a snapshot function. Again, thanks for you excellent work.

For PDA witch have a touch screen is possible to use: a click on screen - update image, double click - switch full screen mode. I plan to add a hard key supports for swithing full screen. May be it would be better to use a central key of the joystick? What do you think?

I was not patient enough with tapping on the screen to allow it to change modes. (a function of the phone, not the software). Now that I know it works well. Hard buttons may not be a good idea as they are getting rarer on the newer phones. I think that tapping the screen is fine.
