Connecting to your Defender IP camera*
Try the following connection options in iSpy or Agent to connect to your Defender IP camera. If an FFMPEG option is available we recommend you try that first as it will often be faster and include audio support. You can also try the VLC plugin if the FFMPEG option isn't working.
The settings for Defender cameras are built right into our open source surveillance software iSpy and our Windows Service based platform, Agent - click "Add" then "IP camera with wizard" to automatically setup your Defender cameras. Start typing in the "Make" box to find your camera. If your camera is not listed in iSpy or Agent then click "Get Latest List" in settings or when on the add camera wizard. If you need to modify the URL then add or edit the Defender camera and you can modify the connection type and URL in the video source dialog (button is top of the first tab).
