Hi

Are any Panadonic IP webcam supporter with PTZ? If so... Do I need to change some config in iCam server in how it connects to the cameras

Following is how it connects from iCam with MJPEG:

Thanks,

JoeB72 - There was a bug in versions 2.4 and 2.4.1 that prevented the Logitech PTZ functions from working correctly in certain situations.  That particular bug has been fixed in version 2.4.2. 

You can get version 2.4.2 here: http://skjm.com/icam/iCamSetup2.4.2.exe

Please let me know if that fix resolves your problem.

Thanks for your quick response.  I installed 2.4.2 and it didn't resolve the problem.  Sometimes it crashes when I hit Start button (like version 2.4 did before 2.4.1 was released).  Sometimes it gets started and it crashes when I try to swipe (pan & tilt) on the iPhone app.   No pan & tilt yet  :'(

No, iCam does not currently support PTZ for Panasonic IP webcams. Supported PTZ USB Webcams and Network IP Cameras are discussed on this forum thread: http://skjm.com/forum/index.php?topic=3162.0

Have you cleaned the registry, if not please download and run (double-click) this file: http://skjm.com/icam/CleaniCamKey.reg

That will erase the current iCamSource settings in your registry. You will need to re-enter all of your settings, but hopefully the problem will be resolved if it's due to a problem in the registry.

Here are the steps to set it up:

1) Plug in the power for the camera and connect it to your wireless router
2) Open up the "IP Camera Tool" to get the IP of your camera
3) Open up an internet browser and type in http://"IP from previous step"
4) The login is "admin" and there isn't a password.
5) Now you can set up your camera preferences.  The important part is to set up the wireless.  Hit "scan" to find your network and enter your password for the network. (I had to hit scan twice for it to work)
6) Once you hit "Submit" your camera will need to reset (30 seconds)

You can leave your camera plugged in directly or you can unplug it and move it to wherever you want.  ***Remember that if you choose to use it wirelessly, it will re-identify the IP to the next available number. For example - Hard wired into the router it was 0.0.0.20; wireless it is now 0.0.0.21.  You can can always run the "IP Camera Tool'

Now start iCam and choose "Ethernet/Wifi".  For your address plug in "http://"IP found above"/video.cgi.  Your login on the next line is the same as your login into the camera.  If you didn't set a password then your login is "admin" and password is blank.  Also set the "Auto Config Router" button.

Start em up and it should work flawlessly!  I have 3 wireless Foscams running without an issue!

You guys at iCam are doing a great job! Keep it up! I'm not freaking out anymore about whether or not I closed my garage doors!

Close to same situation here but now I wish I could get the dang thing to work over port forwarding in order to access the cameras via the web.

Hello, I uninstalled the application, deleted the iCamsource folder and cleaned the registry then installed again version 2.4.2
and as soon as I hit Start button the application crashes just like version 2.4 did.  I hit Start a second time and it crashes again.
..hit Start a third time and it starts this time however no pan & tilt yet.  Has anyone here in the forum succeded making pan & tilt work with
a Logitech Orbit AF on a Windows 7 64bit machine?

Just like with any other IP camera, you will need to configure your network router to forward a single TCP port to your iOS device's internal IP address. For additional information please see the FAQ section of our ipCam support pages here: http://skjm.com/ipcam/support.php#faq

Is your webcam plugged into a USB hub or extension cable? If so, please try plugging it directly into the computer.

Make sure that Windows is fully updated through Windows Update and that you have the latest drivers installed for your webcam.

Also, please make sure there aren't any other video capture programs (such as Skype) running. They might be fighting iCamSource for access to the camera.

Hi

I also have a Logitech Orbit AF, WIN7 64bit

ICam source works fine (2.4,2.41,2.42)

I have tried
http://skjm.com/icam/CleaniCamKey.reg

Orbit is connected direct into the PC.

You can see that "Logitech webcam controller" is used by iCamSource, BUT that just it

You can not remote control the Orbit from ICam in the Android phone :'(

Please advice

In our iCamSource, it says "QuickCam Orbit/Sphere AF", not "Logitech Webcam Controller". You may not have the Orbit software installed.  You can get it here: http://www.logitech.com/en-us/435/3480?WT.z_sp=Image

Also, currently the Android version of iCam does not support PTZ. It has been requested and is currently on our list of potential features to implement in the future.

I was maybe a little unclear:

In iCamsource it says:QuickCam Orbit/Sphere AF (just as your setup)
In the "Logitech webcam controller"-window it is stated: "is used by: iCamSource", which should be ok

I can control the cam from the pc, but not in the androidphone

It seemed like PTZ was working from reading the top of this thread (iPhone+ Android version)

Any ETA for PTZ on Android?
(Otherwise keep up the good work with improving iCam (for both ;) phone versions)

Hello, yes the Logitech Orbit AF webcam is plugged in directly into my computer.
Windows is fully updated and the latest drivers of the webcam are installed
There are no other video capture programs running
I'm sticking with version 2.4.1 for now, even if no PTZ functions are working, because 2.4.2 is still an unstable version
I'm really looking forward to have PTZ functions available from my iCam app
Thanks for your work

I've got a Logitech Orbit/Sphere too, but for me there is a mistake...
Is the first version of the orbit that is different from the others. I use also MyWebcam software on my Android, my Orbit cam pan great :)
The model of the webcam is :V-UU22.

I agree, this feature is one of the main reasons that I purchased this app. Please, please, please make it happen for Android. So far I'm loving everything else that this app has to offer.

I have 5 Panasonic BLC 10 cameras working on iCam, any chance you may look into the Pan & Tilt option, thanks.
