CloudCam Streaming


Please see instructions

The streaming feature can stream MJPEG video content to a remote server and allow your device to be viewed from anywhere in the world using a WiFi or 3G network. All that is required is an Android handset running CloudSpyCam, and a home PC/Mac connected to the Internet.

Once the CloudCam is running on a WiFi network, download the streaming bridge to your PC or Mac. From your PC or Mac, connect to the handset using a URL like and then select the link "Download streaming server jar". Once the file has been downloaded, please read the instructions (within the jar file, use WipZip to open)to install. Once the bridge is installed and your router has been opened to stream MJPEG content from your handset to your home machine, you can commence streaming from the device.

OK! Let's start with a couple of questions to get you connected...

  1. Do you have a home PC or Mac?
  2. Is the machine connected to the Internet?
  3. Do you have a wireless router connected to the Internet?

If the answer is Yes to all three questions above then continue to configure your router and install the streaming bridge. Please note the instructions below are based on Windows and a Netgear WiFi router connected to the Internet.

To begin install perform the steps below...

  1. Download the streaming jar to your PC from the handset. Instructions provided above.
  2. Open up a command prompt. From windows, select run, and then type cmd.
    1. Change folder to the directory where you downloaded the streaming jar from step 1.
    2. Obtain the IP address of your machine connected to the wireless router. This can be performed by typing the command "ipconfig" in the command prompt.

    In the example below the IP address is

    Wireless LAN adapter Wireless Network Connection:

    Connection-specific DNS Suffix . :

    Link-local IPv6 Address . . . . . : fe80::dd51:e549:a11e:8c66%15

    IPv4 Address. . . . . . . . . . . :
