I recently purchased NCS and can’t say enough good things about it…I currently have 12 camera’s running smoothly despite each one being a different brand, style and type. The support I have received is simply INCREDIBLE…I had one camera that I was about to give up on but not the support at NCS people…Henrik has been just incredible…he never gives up and has solved all of my problems and gotten everything running smoothly.
I highly recommend this software to anyone…
A few noob questions before possible purchase
I have to say wow,at the speed my cams are recording and playing live at,I did use Webcam XP and Webcam 7 years ago but then started to use Ispy,my god thats a processor hogger,on that my webcams would record at maybe 15 fps now using your software Net Cam Studio its runs at full speed at 30 fps…Thanks.using this from now on.I use it for recording my front door and the area outside so have 2 webcams looking outside.I remember using Webcam XP to connect to my cams via the internet,wow that was about 8 years ago,I think,I remember using my XDA phone to connect to it,Thanks for making a great piece of software we can use so easily.
Oh one more thing,I connect to my cams thorough Remote Desktop cos they are on another PC in my bed room and I am in my front room on my other PC here typing this. so all cool. They both run Windows 10 Pro Insider Preview 17040
I also must start with a WOW! Thank you so much for this very fine and valuable feedback of Netcam Studio. During the last year we have been working a lot to make it much more efficient, i.e use much less cpu-load for a given setup. The market for high resolution megapixel cameras is increasing rapidly so to be able to use an affordable computer system that optimization is necessary. Also, a new web client have been developed and there are new icons in the user interfaces that we hope everyone likes as much as we do
Thanks again and you know where to find us for questions and suggestions.

Hi you can use my feedback that I posted the other day,I don’t mind.
Just started to use the client and it works great but I did notice that my cameras at night low in frame rate,so daytime run at 30 fps and night run at between 8 and 5 fps,must be the exposure of the cameras,the higher it is the lower the frame rate so less light coming into the lens.10 times better than ISpy program.You have to login to ISpy to see you cams online and need to pay a subscription to use its plus features and online is locked so you can only look online at your cameras locally without a subscription ,With Netcam Studio you don’t have to pay monthly,just pay for a licence.and I like how you give away licences too,see ISpy doing that… No.ISpy is very slow,the frame rate you can control but its not worth it when your camera is at 2 to 5 fps in the day,it because the program sends the cameras to there website and slows them down all the time.With this you have a choice to have it on a website or not.and control who is accessing the website so less cpu usage on your PC.Brilliant program “Dose what it says on the Tin”.simply.
I have been using NCS for just a few days. I have friends and family that swear by the package Arlo systems, but in just 2-3 days I have setup a nearly identical system to Arlo but at a fraction of the cost. I control how everything works via NCS with my own limitations, not limitations set on me by the vendor. NCS is exactly what I was looking for.
Thanks for the kind words.
Yes, we like NCS a lot too
After testing many programs this is the best, in fact one of the few that can add latest type cameras. I also discovered digoo brand camera with better night vision than the eyes can see, complemented by net studio able to record to hdd or SD. Netcam studio works great in tandem with VLC player, they auto mesh. The licence link fails to take me to anywhere if I want to register, a fix that will enhance the organisation. Some new cams like fisheye and my new digoo are designed to not run on a PC but netcam studio detects them but others dont, in fact it detects my cam as all 4 foscam, onvif, lan and ipc, where onvif site fails to display video and sound, netcam studio onvif detection does better than the onvif site itself. Took a little tricking, login as admin and use password supplied with cam. Netcam studio gives more options than the digoo mobile phone software but can still use both at same time PC or phone live monitoring. Netcam studio has the email, SD, and PC file option to save recordings or images and easy to view, or convert. A more instant motion detection would be good, the license plate and speed detection is innovative but am too distant to test it properly but seemed to work allowing for out of distance location. I recommend people login to their router and add cam address, detected auto in most to ensure IP does not change. By far the best cam viewer overall.
Netcam studio is the one. it works far beyond a brand list, it keys into actual detection seeking onvif etc in fact its onvif detection gets me sound and video but onvif site detects cam but no video or audio, a good proof NCS has more advanced detection. I have many type cameras that are not in any makers lists and NCS detected them all, but too easy. I said this in my earlier post before reading this, you are now using the best ever program, wise choice.
May I ask one question please, that being, are there options to make motion detection record more instantly ? for example in a small distance, it triggers just as they leave the area not when they enter it. very high sensitivity is bad as trees often move, but even that seems to have a delay in triggering. The threshold setting sounds like it wont be too relevant. Do you think, this might be a comms issue between cam and modem making a triggering delay? and if so, can communication with cameras over-ride this in the program somehow. Everything is better than perfect, this is the only glitch I have and is not a software issue but maybe software works can create a com solution. Thank you
Hi and thanks for all the kind words!
Interesting question. What is the resolution of the cameras that you use?
Hi there Henrik, it is well deserved, you are innovative and passionate.
even got a great sense of humor I noticed haha.
Resolution is HD 960P, 1,300,000 Pixel H.264 Compression
I was not surprised to later read others saying things I had said, and,
there are millions of businesses in the world using outdated cumbersome
camera monitoring software, whereby your program is a no-brainer to
replace them with, a big market if you started with a marketing manager.
I was an ex hacker in earlier PC years and found and discovered some new
amazing abilities, it seems you have with your area of expertise, it
spoke for itself by doing what onvif site cant do and recognised unknown
late model cams that were designed not to be able to be used with PC
software. It was also nice to see you get out personally with your
customers and in a genuine way.
Thanks a lot for this excellent video!
Sorry but this was for summer 2017? Netcam Studio 2?
Please, tell us if you are working on new versions or it’s just another abandoned project.
Thank you, we are alive and kickin! No intention to abandon Netcam Studio. For about a year ago we had a very intense development process to shape up both performance and design. Today the pace is slower, but we are working. Version 2 was my fault where I was a little bit to enthusiastic . We take version 1.8 and 1.9 first
The development of IP cameras have made a jump in increased redolution on short time to an affordable cost. This inturn affect the need for more processor power, new compression algorithms etc.
So thanks for your concern and positive feedback in forum and support mail!
Henrik and the Netcam Studio team.
I have been using NCS for around 6 months now, after moving from another DVR program. Even though I only had 2 cameras, I purchased the license as I was so impressed by the software, just to help support future development etc. I have since added a third camera and have had no issues. I’m running windows 7 on the server and have only rebooted it once (due to hardware failure, not NCS) in 6 months. Recording quality is amazing and remote access is seemless from anywhere. Keep up the great work @Henrik and the team!
Thank you very much for the kind words! We are doing our best to continue keeping it that way
I appreciate that development takes time, and I can see you clearly have a road map. I’m very pleased with Netcam Studio and mention it whenever I can.
If my testing of the Wyze v2 RTSP firmware is successful, I will end up with many more cameras and a need for a license, so I am keen to see how NCS moves forward. Keep at it!
