Or, web cam and existing fone or ipad...
I have an older wifi cam and wanted to see if I could get it working
with a cheap tablet of some sort as a remote viewer. The cam had some
sort of windows software that I never used, but I could see it with VLC
on my Mac after putting in some sort of weird script, but a VLC upgrade
would not see it any more. I found an earlier version and installed
that and it worked again, but then I got a new router with my Uverse
install, and it wouldn't see it anymore though it was still visible on
the network. I sorta gave up on fooling with it at that point.
Now I am wondering if I could use a cheap tablet as a monitor for it,
somehow. I have an old Android phone and an old ifone too, there is a
VLC app for the phones and ipad, so I am wondering if that might work
somehow. If I could get it working then I could buy one of those $50
tablets and have a continuous monitor. THere might be some other apps
too, I have not looked into it.
Or should I just buy one of these and use it and not fool with the other
one? Or will the same s/w work with the old one I have?
