Hi, I’ve been using NetcamStudio and WebcamXp for years now, and I think I can say that I’ve mastered all of the usefull features and tweaks of it. But There has been one small thing that has been bothering me for quite some time now.
I live in Italy, and here “high-speed internet” has a different meaning than in many other parts of the world. I have a 6Mbps/51kbps connection at home, where I’m hosting my netcam server (My ISP even calls this connection “POWER” - I kid you not!).
On my local subnet I use the app on various Android devices, which works like a charm (despite the fact that one needs to login over and over again when switching between apps). But as soon as I try to connect from the internet, the connection times out.
This behavior seems to be consistent also on other devices (I’ve only tried Android’s) at various locations
(even abroad). However when I use the web-interface from a PC, and wait long enough the server page loads up just fine. using a browser (Linux - Firefox - Chrome) on my phone also gives a timeout.
The issue should not be related to the internet connection of my mobile devices, I only use Wi-Fi Connections (at work I just tested 36Mbps/38Mbps on Wi-Fi and 326Mbps/78Mbps on Ethernet)
(Yes, I have a dynamic IP at home and a working DynDNS subscription, the results remain the same when I use my hostname or temporary assigned IP address)
I believe that the timeout setting in the mobile application is maybe just to short (or is this a general Android setting), Would it be possible to increase the timeout? or potentially even a lighter webpage that responds quicker?
Thanks for all your help.
