Hello
I want to write a program for an ip camera using c#, the camera Located in different location away from the PC, both the pc and the camera uses different Wi-Fi
Now I just need a good answer for those two questions
1-	Do I need to buy an ip static and without it I cannot get my program works(no other choice)
2-	Is it true that before several years one can write a program 
Which see the ip camera using the internet explorer in different location and different Wi-Fi but now it forbidden and without buying ip static he just need dynamic dns from a site like www.noip.com
Note 
I have to write the code below just to fulfil the requirement for my question


What I have tried:

   //ignor this code 
public Form1()
        {
            InitializeComponent();
        }//Form1

You can buy off the shelf what you describe. 4K wifi cameras streaming to your linux server vdr, to you router, and into your pc.

Solution 1

If the camera is remote from the PC and on different WiFi then they need an internet connection. In such a case you need a fixed IP address to connect to the camera. As to your second question much depends on the features of the camera and how it can be accessed. You may get a better answer from the camera manufacturer.

It depends on the camera. They all have their own software and libraries, so the only way to find out is to chooses a camera and talk to the manufacturer.
