Question:

Hi there, how can you do the following: i have a ip camera and my provider has a dynamic ip and want to put camera live image on my web site that i do not host on same network.

Answer:

there are several options to get the image to display on to a website.

Typical is to use the cameras RTSP stream to bring the video to the web page. There are a variety of scripts that are available for the RTSP that you can put on your website.

However I am not sure how that will work with a dynamic IP. Typically you need to use a fixed IP address for the camera that you will be displaying on the website. Otherwise every time the IP address changes you will have to change it on the website.

Thanks,
