28 May 2016 at 21 h 11 min #278
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
QUICK STEPS :
- Find a long usb cable (2m for me)
- Donwload Yawcam at http://www.yawcam.com/
- 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
- 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)
