SurfCam Test

We're in the process of testing a couple of IP cameras located on
Lakes Bay, NJ.

They are definitely not (repeat... *not* as in N_O_T) ready for
prime time, but we need so have people try to look at them (the
operative phrase is "*Try* To"....) and report whatever problems
they see.

The link: http://tinyurl.com/7ustssx

A screen shot of what I see when I click that link:

Your Mileage May Vary....

Problems I've seen so far:

- The page is very slow to render completely.  We suspect that
  this is partially due to one cam's being behind a very slow
  internet connection (as in 45kB/s).

  But even clicking on "Clips" seems to take a long time while
  "Connecting...".

- Not all functions work on all browsers.   If you see something
  egregious, be sure to specify browser and version (e.g.
  "Firefox 3.2")

The server we are currently using is called "Blue Iris".   If
anybody can suggest something better, we're all ears.

One more time: we know this is not ready for prime time, so
set your expectations accordingly....

Needless-to-say, you won't see much of anything once the sun goes
down...

Tried Opera Next 12 latest version and IE 64 bit latest version.

Not trusting an unknown activeX installer, I used your Java option on both browsers.

Both said "connecting" for about 30 seconds, then "unable to connect".

I was trying at 12:40 GMT.

Thanks.

I see a *lot* of connections since starting this thread.

Has anybody at all been successful?
