Hi All,

I am currently attempting to get our IP camera connected to Skype (as opposed to using a traditional web cam).

However thinking that this would be a straight forward procedure has turned into a nightmare. I have tried almost every 3rd part app suggested by Google still to no avail.

If anyone has any advice on how I would get the network camera (Samsung SNZ-5200 ) to connect to Skype please let me know.

Thanks in advance.
Adrian

Hi,

I have tried many cam along with magic cam as these were also the recommendations within the link that Agonza07 suggested. Unfortunately when attempting to connect the ip camera within many cam and attempt to view all I receive is the word ' error' on the display creen. However the url to the feed and credentials ate correct and using them via a browser works fine.
