Alternatively you can view the camera without a paid-for app but you will need to have the free VLC video player installed.

Edge (Windows 10):
The Edge browser does not support the video format used by our webcam. However if you click the three dots at the top right you can then select "Open with Internet Explorer" which should work.
A recent update (2016) to Firefox has resulted in the Windows Media Player (WMP) plug-in no longer working. To re-enable it see the instructions in this link.
With the plug-in installed you should
see an embedded media player window with controls. The controls can be
ignored. The webcam image will eventually display but may be small.
You can sometimes enlarge it by right clicking it and selecting zoom 200%.
As of 2015 Chrome no longer supports the video format used by our camera software. If you still have an old version of Chrome it may still work.
Safari and Firefox on Mac: You will need to install the Flip4Mac application which is available here for $10.
This allows Quicktime to play Windows Media streams and files. You
should see a full size image in both Safari and Firefox (Chrome not yet
tested on a Mac). [Note: The information given here dates from 2014 and may no longer be correct]
Linux: Linux users may require the Xine Movie Player. For help to install this try searching Google, using the key words - "install XINE" and the name of your Linux distribution; RedHat, Ubuntu, Mint etc.
