    My Wanhao Duplicator 6 is near my PC (at 2 meters). I have thinked to use my old USB webcam like an IP CAM (Logitech QuickCam Pro 4000 since 2002).  It’s very easy to do in 5 min.

    The specs of this usb webcam are “honorable” for this job : Resolution 1.3Megapixels / 1280*960


    • Find a long usb cable (2m for me)
    • Donwload  Yawcam at
    • Install it on Windows
    • Configure Yawcam in few steps.
    • Download IP Cam Viewer ans configure it

    On mobile :

    Download Ip Cam Viewer Lite on Android Phone


    Download Ip Cam Viewer Lite on iPhone

    In IP Cam Viewer Lite select profil “Yawcam” add your IP and port

    I have selected IP CAM Viewer because is on Appstore and Playstore. You can choose other app

    Tip : if videostream is poor, use http with pictures

    CONS :

    • it requires a computer on (not a problem for me)
    • No HD with very old webcam ( You can control if it prints but not the details)
