NetworkCam

To view this page, you should have the most recent Java installed 32-bit JRE (Java Runtime Environment) 1.8.0_102. Use the Firefox browser for best results.

The regular version does not require granting permission, but it only works for feeds from your own server. Both are included.

You can display many snapshot webcams on one webpage. They can be any sizes.

Java Requirements and Troubleshooting

NetworkCam is a signed Java Applet to Network Webcam. You are welcome to install it on your own website. If it does not work…
  1. For this Applet to work, you must click grant/accept/always run on this site/I accept the risk to give it permission to talk to a variety of servers on the net. If you refuse to grant permission, the program may crash with an inscrutable stack dump on the console complaining about AccessController.checkPermission.
  2. In the Java Control Panel security tab, click Start ⇒ Control Panel ⇒ Programs ⇒ Java ⇒ Security, configure medium security to allow self-signed and vanilla unsigned applets to run. If medium is not available, or if Java security is blocking you from running the program, configure high security and add http://mindprod.com to the Exception Site List at the bottom of the security tab.
  3. Often problems can be fixed simply by clicking the reload button on your browser.
  4. Make sure you have both JavaScript and Java enabled in your browser.
  5. Make sure the Java in your browser is enabled in the security tab of the Java Control panel. Click Start ⇒ Control Panel ⇒ Programs ⇒ Java ⇒ Security ⇒ Enable Java Content in the browser.
  6. This signed Java Applet needs 32-bit or 64-bit Java 1.8 or later. For best results use the latest 1.8.0_102 Java.
  7. You also need a recent browser.
  8. It works under any operating system that supports Java e.g. W2K, XP, W2003, Vista, W2008, W7-32, W7-64, W8-32, W8-64, W2012, W10-32, W10-64, Linux, LinuxARM, LinuxX86, LinuxX64, Ubuntu, Solaris, SolarisSPARC, SolarisSPARC64, SolarisX86, SolarisX64 and OSX
  9. Make sure your zoom is on normal 100% to give the Applet room to run.
  10. You should see the Applet above looking much like this screenshot. If you don’t, the following hints should help you get it working:
  11. Optionally, you may permanently install the Canadian Mind Products code-signing certificate so you don’t have to grant each time.
  12. If the above Applet appears to freeze-up, click Alt-Esc repeatedly to check for any buried permission dialog box.
  13. If you have certificate troubles, check the installed certificates and remove or update any obsolete or suspected defective certificates. The only certificate used by this program is mindprodcert2016dsa.cer.
  14. Especially if this Applet has worked before, try clearing the browser cache and rebooting.
  15. To ensure your Java is up to date, check with Wassup. First, download it and run it as an application independent of your browser, then run it online as an Applet to add the complication of your browser.
  16. If the above Applet does not work, check the Java console for error messages.
  17. If the above Applet does not work, you might have better luck with the downloadable version available below.
  18. If you are using Mac OS X and would like an improved Look and Feel, download the QuaQua look & feel from randelshofer.ch/quaqua. UnZip the contained quaqua.jar and install it in ~/Library/Java/Extensions or one of the other ext dirs.
  19. Upgrade to the latest version of Internet Explorer or another browser.
  20. Click the Information bar, and then click Allow blocked content. Unfortunately, this also allows dangerous ActiveX code to run. However, you must do this in order to get access to perfectly-safe Java Applets running in a sandbox. This is part of Microsoft’s war on Java.
  21. Try upgrading to a more recent version of your browser, or try a different browser e.g. Firefox, SeaMonkey, IE or Avant.
  22. If you still can’t get the program working click the red HELP button below for more detail.
  23. If you can’t get the above Applet working after trying the advice above and from the red HELP button below, have bugs to report or ideas to improve the program or its documentation, please send me an email atemail Roedy Green.

The testing frog sounds can be turned on and off by changing the HTML (Hypertext Markup Language). I thought they would make it clearer what the program is doing. You can also watch the Java console for a running commentary on what the program is doing.
