Every now and then I receive valuable feedback from AbelCam users.
Jamie Christian sent me this:
I built a little web page to allow remote control of a camera
using PTZOnly with Abelcam running as a webservice.
This page runs on a web server in my company that is visible outside
the firewall and uses server side HTTP calls to allow me to control
a camera inside the firewall without having to use VPN or proxy.
I built it as a generic webpage so it would run on any platform.
It’s pretty low tech code, but it lets you adjust PTZ and save presets,
also it allows you to bookmark it once you’ve got the camera address and
presets set up the way you want. It persists the settings in the URL.
The application was built to use with Skype.
I run Skype to connect my home office to my work office and use the application to
remote control the camera in my work office.
There is actually no Skype plug in or support for remote control of a camera,
so Abelcam PTZOnly as a service along with that webpage is a perfect solution.
Anyway… I wanted to share it with you in appreciation for the work
you’ve done on Abelcam.
