I am the system administrator for some friends who have a couple of web-cams for professional surveillance at a small commercial plant. The cameras are D-Links from the DCS series.
Currently, they are accessing them through the Mydlink portal. This works fine (tm) most of the time, unless you try to access them from a Ubuntu system. Then mydlink.com gives this error:
Unsupported Browser or Operating System Detected!
You are using an unsupported browser or operating system and therefore the mydlink web portal may not look, behave or function as intended.
Looking at the list of available options, it appears that the only operating systems that are supported are Mac and Windows. Is there a way to access the cameras from Ubuntu short of setting up a custom web page with dynamic DDNS?
