Multiple Cams on same IP?

Postby MartyK » Wed Jul 13, 2016 7:04 am

Hi guys

Is it possible for me to have 2 cameras setup on same PC?

The WAN IP stays the same but I was looking to get a second webcam going from the same PC.

If so, how would I do it?

Would one ip have to be linked with a DUC?

Cheers.

Yes, you can, you just need to use a different port for each camera.

The stream uses port 8081 by default, but if you run more than one instance, you need to use a different port for each instance of Yawcam.

so you can have:
Yawcam1 on port 8081
Yawcam2 on port 8082
...
YawcamN on port 808N

If you also use the HTTP feature, it uses a different port, so you can have say Yawcam1 using port 8081 and 8082, then Yawcam2 using port 8083 and 8084...
