I have just purchase (used) 3 IP Intellinet IP camera's and I have my own domain/hosting, etc.

How would I stream them to my website? Do I need special software? Is it simple, or not so simple?

I would want to password protect them too, but I want to take it one step at a time, and at least get them going.

Thanks!

Your best bet is to just do a search for 'video streaming software' and see what you come up with. You might want to check and see whether your hosting company will allow you to set up streaming video. And you will probably need a dedicated system to stream the video to your host.

I have a dedicated system for it. Could I just port forward to that local PC, and use my WAN IP address?

Also, I have seen some other software, I could change the port to whatever, and use mydomain.com:1338 for example? I guess I will try it out and see what I get

I don't know what your setup is like, so I can't comment on what will or will not work with your setup. If you are capturing streaming video with your own system, and your hosting is not on your own system, then you are going to have to stream your video to your host so that it is available to the public.

Alright, so I have the camera setup on my network, I can access it using www.mydomain.com:1000 (i changed the port number to 1000 for Web server port)

I can access the web server of the camera (the login page) externally, but there is no camera feed, it is just blank. I can see the feed inside locally using 192.168.1.151:1000(the local camera's IP)

I have port forwarding setup for port 1000 -> 192.168.1.151

Why would I not be able to see the camera feed, but I can see the login page...there are other port options, but I don't exactly know what to change, and/or port forward.

Image transfer port(8000-65535) which is set to: 8080
Upgrade port number(8000-65535) which is set to: 9000
Ptz port number(8000-65535) which is set to 10000

Any help getting the live stream to work externally?I can access the login page externally, and the actual camera settings...just not the feed!

Thanks for any advice!

Could be a million different things really. I don't know anything about the topic. You might need to go to the support forum of whatever software you are using and ask there.

Just to let others know, if they find this thread I did get it working by doing this:

Forwarding port 1000(HTTP) to the internal IP address (192.168.1.150)
Forwarding port 8000 (Image transfer port) to the same internal IP address (192.168.1.150)

By having both of those forwarded, I was able to view the webcam stream off of my internal network, using my public IP address.

Also, I was able to get it working on my Android Thunderbolt using the app IP Cam Viewer Lite, using the IP address, and 1000 as the HTTP port number.

Hope this helps someone else.
