My ip address keeps changing, what can i do ?
In case you have a dynamic ip address you can simply solve that issue by subscribing to a dynamic redirection server like and then under http settings type your dynamic name instead of your ip address.

In order to ensure that the name is always linked to the current ip address of your computer, download and install DynDns Updater (free) and now you can use: instead of using the ip address and won't have to worry anymore about the ip address which changes from time to time.

Can i run webcamXP as service ?
webcamXP Service is provided in all versions since 5.3.1 with webcamXP Service controller, the service version will use exactly the same settings than the GUI version .

Can I retrieve audio from my network camera ?
This is only possible with a few models (mainly Panasonic and Axis) and using webcam 7 together with a template supporting audio (only MPEG4 or RTSP template might support audio decoding as well).

This only works under Windows XP 32-bits as this has not been ported to other operating systems. Such configuration might not be suitable for all features because those cards can only monitor one input at time and has to switch between the inputs which makes it not usable for purposes such as multiple sources recording or multiple sources motion detection. To setup a security system, it's suggested to use network cameras instead...
