Using the IP Camera DirectShow Filter


#1

I’m trying to use the IP Camera DirectShow Filter so I can present an IP Camera to a Flash Application but can’t figure out how to use it. I have the following files available:

  • ijl20.dll
  • IPCamera.ax
  • IPCams.wml
  • reg_IPCamera.bat
  • unreg_IPCamera.bat

Do I need to run something in the command line? How do I tell it what IP address the camera is at etc?

The filter needs to be registered on the system, this is normally done automatically during installation, otherwise can be done manual using the reg_ batch.

This allows the filter to be listed like normal / local cameras in the list of devices in most applications.

Then the filter can be configured using it’s configuration screen. Most applications allows this usually references as “Camera properties” or “Camera settings”.
