How do I allow my friends to view my videos streamed from BroadCam?
If you don't have a website, users can connect directly to your pc across the web using your public IP address followed by the port number you have Broadcam running on. eg: http://188.8.131.52:86
To find out your public IP, go to http://www.whatismyip.com.
Next you will need to allow access through your internet modem/router. The easy way to do this is to open Options in BroadCam and click the 'Run Web Routing and Test Wizard' button. This will attempt to open the required port on your modem/router for you, if your router supports this.
If successful you can send the Public Network link listed in that section of the Options to your friends. They can enter this address into their internet browser to connect to your streams.
If, after running the wizard, the ‘Current Status’ underneath the button says 'Router Configuration Required', please see below for details on forwarding the port manually.
Forwarding the port manually in your modem/router:
Step 1: Getting IP addresses
Step 2: Getting into your Modem/Router
If you still have troubles after forwarding the ports, please check the Windows firewall, third party Firewalls, and especially Anti Virus Firewalls, are not blocking ports. (probably easiest to turn them off to test with). View our tutorial series on connecting server-based software to the internet at http://www.nch.com.au/kb/10046.html.
