Hi all,
I'm wondering if there is a way to have some of the cameras "unsecured" and some secured? By this I mean, by default ZM has no password required to get in and view the cameras, but of course we set up user accounts to protect these feeds, and I love that you can restrict certain users to specific cameras, but can I set specific cameras to have no security at all?

The reason I ask is, I would like to embed the jpg stream into a web page, so that stream is visible, but in order to do that I have to turn off the authentication entirely, which i'm not comfortable with.

You can allow access to your cameras via a web page without having to allow anonymous access to your cameras. I just whipped up a simple iPhone app using PHP and javascript and my cameras are still password protected. You simply need to use PHP:cURL and supply passwords for your cameras in your PHP code:

Code: Select all

        curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_USERPWD, "username:password");
