Well i’m feeling a bit dumb now…
Gave up and went out to do some things while i waited for a reply from you guys. While i was out I tried from my phone (which i did before but from home) and voila! there was the cam stream all working !
It seems trying to connect to WebCamXP before while my phone was on the internal WiFi so the http call had to go out and then back in … it got blocked/lost somehow. Doing the same thing from outside the internal network works fine.
No idea why that is so … but it it working and i am happy !
Thanks so much for your support and really informative site.
