Using the streaming interface

The streaming interface enables you to enter the ID of a recording and view it in a web browser on your PC . You do not have to have a user account on the IP VCR to be able to do this.

By default, the streaming interface is accessible by all users (even those who have not logged into the IP VCR). However, administrators can disable public access to the streaming interface. To do so, go to Settings > User interface.

If you do need to log in to the IP VCR, use the Log in link on the top right of the screen.
