autogenerated IP address for streaming is wrong

Postby AlanRaetz » Sat Jul 20, 2013 7:56 pm

I don't know if this is fix-able but Yawcam reports an IP address for external streaming that is wrong.

That is, when I got to "Help" -> "What's my URL?" the software reports 68.183.233.120. Since this didn't work for me (but the local network streaming did), and my router port forwarding setup seemed to be correct, I contacted my DSL provider (DSL extreme). They said my real IP was http://50.1.78.43:8081/ and sure enough that streams fine.

So streaming externally does work for me, but since my IP address will change and YC does not report the correct IP address, I will lose this again.

So whatever algorithm YC uses to determine external IP is not working for me.

Great software, thanks so much!

In the settings -> Connection page, click on Get to retrieve the newest IP address.
