IP cameras can't handle web traffic
IP cameras are slow devices that can't handle a regular amount of web traffic. So if you plan to go public with an IP camera you have the following options:
# Initialize# Basic authauth = 'Basic ' + 'user:secret'toString'base64'# Same parameters as http.getpaparazzo =host: 'camera.dyndns.org'port: 1881path: '/mjpg/video.mjpg'headers: 'Authorization': authpaparazzoon "update"consolelog "Downloaded bytes"paparazzoon 'error'consolelog "Error: "paparazzostart# Serve image# Take a look at server.coffee
You can simulate MJPG streaming by requesting new images on a specific interval. Appending a random parameter avoids caching.
