If a camera is running in ContaCam on COMPUTER1, it's possible to connect to this camera from another ContaCam running on COMPUTER2.

Note: this second computer can also be the same computer, so that we can use a single camera in two different modes or with two different settings.

  1. In ContaCam of COMPUTER2 open the Camera - Network / IP Camera dialog and under Camera IP or Address enter the following URL:
    http://COMPUTER1:PORT1/CAMERA_NAME/poll.php
    or
    http://COMPUTER1:PORT1/CAMERA_NAME/push.php
    • Replace COMPUTER1 with the host name or ip address of COMPUTER1
    • Replace PORT1 with the HTTP Port set in ContaCam's Global Settings of COMPUTER1
    • Replace CAMERA_NAME with the name of the camera you want to connect to
  2. If a higher frame rate is wanted: set the Take each rate to Fast in Camera Advanced Settings of COMPUTER1
  3. If a lower video resolution is wanted: modify the above mentioned links to poll.php?thumb=yes or push.php?thumb=yes and set the wanted Thumbnail Size in Camera Advanced Settings of COMPUTER1
