Is there a pc app. to view H.323 video conference streams?
We are using commercial video systems that have there own
hardware. We need to only observe these streams not participate in them.

Thanks

I have attended H.323 video conferences via Microsoft NetMeeting, but I was still a participant.  NetMeeting is free and was included with Legacy Windows OSes, and can be found for download on newer ones.  I think you'll also need to open up some ports on your firewall to make it work.  Have fun!

VLC http://www.videolan.org/vlc/ might be able to handle it as well.  You'd have to experiment but VLC is free.

I understand the question completely.  The fact is that there are no PC applications available that would allow you to view an H.323 video stream without also being a participant.  Microsoft NetMeeting is as close as it gets.

Thank you for the response. You are right as far as I can tell at this point. You did not mention in your first post that you do not believe any software can do that. I have been testing software and have come to the same conclusion. Tried VLC and not had any luck yet.

Thanks again,
