Any help or steering into the right direction is greatly appreciated! Using this IP address, you can access the interface in your browser, just like you would do locally. not having to connect to the VPN), I would love to hear about it!
You can either set up a forwarded Port directly to the webcam's gui (Port 80 for example) OR you can use a VPN connection, which turns your Pi accessible to other networks (no port forwarding needed! I have no idea why someone would need both, but it sounds like you're missing some routing information on the VPN connection.
I've got a spare RPi here and maybe I'm gonna test it on that one.
This looks very promising but is it possible to use the images the camera makes on a custom webpage, like with mjpg-streamer or something else ?
The latency remains fairly low at about 0.4 seconds based on comparing an onscreen timer and the video image of it.
This better than the various h264 format streaming that I have tried, where the latency sometimes starts low but then stretches out to 10s of seconds.
Looks like it is saving every single JPEG image displayed in process memory, forever.
Firefox 25.0.1 actually starts out growing too, but then levels off around 500 MB.
You can get an idea of the lag, due to the video feedback effect. v=RQHKQPZg EVUThis looks very promising but is it possible to use the images the camera makes on a custom webpage, like with mjpg-streamer or something else ?
I want to be able to access that camera over the internet.
More specifically, I am trying to view the RPi Cam Web Interface in a browser.
Note, in the secondary "preview.php" page under the "Download Videos and Images" link , I can view a preview of the JPEG stills fine, but the preview window for the mp4 video shows a grey rectangle with the text "No video with supported format and MIME type found".
However I can still download the mp4 file and play it locally on my Win XP box, that part works OK.
With Chrome 32.0.1700.41 it is either a memory leak or a garbage collector problem or similar.
