Question


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?

Answer


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.

    Download unsigned ActiveX Control – Prompt

Note for Windows 7 64 bit users: If you've enabled all of the appropriate settings and are still unable to load Active X controls you may not have a 32 bit version of Internet Explorer available on your operating system. If you have a 64 bit version of Windows 7 you will need to have downloaded Microsoft's "Service Pack 1" or higher in order to use a 32 bit version of Internet Explorer.
