There's a bug in the APPs. IP Cam Viewer Pro is working. Both APPs have
audio bug currently for the camera. And developers have Queued this in
their bug fix list.

Depends on your budget. VStarcam H6837WI not bad also and can do local
recording to MicroSD Card. Price wise, check my earlier post. If you want to
view via iPhone APPS. IP Cam Viewer Pro is working on everything except
AUDIO.

The current playback is via its webUI, for download wise...

I use MPlayer (but playback in Fast forward mode), you need to rename the file to mpeg first before playing. Wrote in to MARIX & VStarcam about this, understand that MARIX have submitted a request for enhanced playback to allow timeline playback possible on the camera's WebUI. Some other features are also in Q too, they say cannot reveal much for now, but they have submitted a lot of feature enhancement list to the manufacturer's development team to make the camera better for consumers. So, am expecting better things along the way.

Thanks geckoSG.
1)I also have IP Cam Viewer Pro. Can we pan/tilt the H6837WI by sliding our finger on the iPad/iPhone/andriod screen? I can do that for DLINK IP camera.
2) what is the extension name that you change to from H.264?MP4?

Dear all ipcam experts,

I am looking to purchase either Foscam FI8918W or VStarcam H6837WI. I am using the default free router from Singtel, 2wire 2701HGV-E Modem. I heard that there is some issues configuring the ipcams with this router.

Is that true? Do i need to buy a new router for the ipcam? If true, what are the other cams that can be used with 2wire 2701HGV-E Modem?

Thanks for the advises!

THanks for the info!!

Now waiting for the audio bugs to be fixed.

Have you tried listening and using mic? DO you have a loud beep sound when executing on the PC over WEBUI?

For now i will definitely choose Foscam FI8918W if you do not have storage concerns
More fluid movement on mobile and storage and no audio bugs.

IP CAM FOSCAM

HI
Perhaps I can answer your question.

I have just bought a foscam FI8918W and am using the 2wire 2701.
You will have no issue getting both to work.

Cheers

Spotted news on the FI8910W as well and would love more reviews on its performance. Am guessing it will sell in Singapore for around $170....
