Can't view YAWCAM while on the same network?

Post by matt » Tue Mar 31, 2020 6:02 pm

I'm running yawcam to monitor a pressure gauge in another part of our building. Everything works fine when accessing the feed outside of the wifi network on my phone using data and the 8081 URL which loads almost instantly. However, when my laptop is connected to the wifi network and I try to access the 8888 URL nothing ever loads. HTTP and Stream both come back OK without issue when testing. Any ideas?

It's possible that you will have to use different URLs when you are on the inside and the outside your network.
Click "Help -> What's my URL?" and the URLs to use will be presented to you.

Ok thanks for the help. I finally got it to work. However, the feed only shows a snapshot of the moment I open the url. It's not a real time live feed like it is when accessed outside of the network. Is there a setting I need to change to make it a live feed?
