Hi Everyone,

I am working on IP Camera and get a snapshot or recording a live stream video feed according to the time set by a user in my web based system comparing to the current time of IP camera. I am intending to call a function and keep it running to do its task even a user close his/her browser.

I have searched on google, i found window service. But it seems not fit my purpose.
It's very grateful if anyone here can help or guide me out.

Thank you very much.

I would imagine you need to look at the documentation for your camera. If it has an IP address then it should be able to talk to your web server directly (more accurately, your server should be able to talk to the camera!) So you need to configure the router at the client to allow you to talk over Internet to the camera.

You then need to tie in the IP address and port of the camera with the user's browser (i.e. the user needs to tell you the IP of the camera as well as the details of how often to refresh etc.)

If you google for "IP camera over the internet " you should find a few places showing you how to set up the router etc. so you can see the camera

Thank you so much.
I am thinking the way you suggest as well, but it would not work if the user switch off their PC. So only server will be able to do this.

I am thinking to create webservice for this and it will keep running, but what I am afraid of the memory consumption. There will be more than 100 IP cameras connected to the server.

Thank you very much.
