Setup PC Webcam with Synology Surveillance Station

Post by bfausti » Sun May 10, 2020 11:00 am

HI, I recently installed Yawcam on my Windows 10 PC. I can preview my Logitech Brio webcam fine from my PC and have enabled Streaming in Yawcam.
However, when I try to add an IP Camera in Synology and look for the Webcam SSS can't find it.

Any suggestions on what the problem might be?

Change Yawcam to stream as MJPEG:
Click:
"Settings -> Edit Settings... -> Stream -> Stream type"
and set it to "MJPEG".

Then let your Synology point to the URL http://ip-address:port/video.mjpg

You find your IP and port number by clicking:
"Help -> What's my URL?"
