When I try to log into my camera using Internet Explorer I can not see any video from my camera. How do I configure my internet options to enable Active X?


If Internet Explorer is configured to not let you install unverified software it might block Active X when you try to view your IP camera via Internet Explorer.

See http://www.windowsreference.com/internet-explorer/windows-has-blocked-this-software-because-it-cant-verify-the-publisher/ for more information on this problem.

Here are the steps to enable Active X controls:

  1. Open Internet Explorer, click Tools – Internet Options .
  2. Click the Security tab – Custom Level button.
  3. Under ActiveX ensure the following are set to enabled
    Run ActiveX and plug-ins – Enabled
    Script ActiveX controls marked as safe for scripting – Enabled
  4. Set the following to “Prompt ”
    Download unsigned ActiveX Control – Prompt
    Download Signed ActiveX Control – Prompt
    Initialize and script ActiveX controls not marked as safe – Prompt
  5. Click OK and Apply and OK. Restart the browser.
