I hate to post links because they will expire, but there are a lot of these “:YOOSEE” baby monitor cameras on e-bay, all fairly cheap
The specs say they support the MJPEG protocol, which should make them good for Webcam XW or Netstudio. But of course these are all from China sellers, and getting info from them is sketchy. One seller at least offered me a link to a manual (Its an MS word Doc)
Within that manual there is also a link to software for your smartphone or PC. All apps, including the The PC app comes in a ZIP with instructions, here…
These cameras have a wifi connector (cat-5, RJ 45) and a wi fi antenna. My problem is that the only instructions which show a method of configuring these cameras with a wi-fi password requires you use their smartphone app. The apple version requires at least IOS 8 and my old Iphone-4 only has IOS 7.1. At this price, I’m hoping someone has used these and knows a way to set them up with their wi-fi password and just using a PC, and that they will then show up as IP cameras within a Webcam XP dropdown list.
The above is actually my concern about most IP cameras that are China products, which is why they are are priced so low. Maybe there is a standard way they all work? Maybe they can each have their own web servers for configuration, and can simply be connected to my router with a wired cable for configuration with a browser? I’d like to think its that easy, but I’d feel better if someone can tell me the successfully used these.
