We haven't tested with those particular cameras, but if they output MJPEG formatted data, they'll probably work with iCamSource.

Did you ever find out if it actually worked?

 ;D  Yes the D-Link 930L will work. I have it set up along with a Panasonic BL-230A and the iCam server. Both work well! Good luck and have fun.

I'm a 52 year old woman, about as technologically savvy as a goldfish.

I went over to Frys today and bought the 930L because it was the cheapest wireless camera in the store, and I really wanted a second camera for the living room.
My husband helped me twice- to show me where to plug it into the router at the beginning, and to to tell me where to place the wireless key on the DLink page when I was setting up the wifi.
I used the first DLink MJPEG URL from the page that was linked off the "Getting Started" page on this site and it worked like a champ.  Also used the D-Link DCS-930L set up video on You tube for the mac. 

So- for less than $75 (app and 2nd camera, aside from my iMac) I now have a two camera security set-up that runs off my iPhone (luckily, I have the 166 IP) and wireless iPad- and sends me alerts, and can be set with schedules and to ignore the lower levels of rooms where the dog would set them off.

Wonderful, wonderful app, amazing documentation!!!  I feel like a tech guru :)

According to your cameraís specifications (http://us.dlink.com/products/home-solutions/day-only-wi-fi-camera-dcs-930l/) it does output MJPEG formatted data, so itíll probably work with iCamSource.

When you run iCamSource, youíll need to select the "Ethernet /Wi-Fi" tab because the camera is a network camera, not a USB camera. Then, enter the MJPEG or JPEG URL for your camera.

If the MJPEG or JPEG URL isnít something that can be found by searching around with Google or by contacting their support, we actually have another solution available, although it is currently in its very preliminary stages, and that is: http://skjm.com/icam/mjpeg_test.php

When you enter the cameraís IP address and port into that web page, it will attempt to connect to the camera using all of the common MJPEG and JPEG URLs that we are aware of. If any of the URLs produce an image, then that is the URL to use in iCamSource.

If your camera requires a login and password, you can enter them in that webpage right before the address : login:password@Camera_address
