    Linux - IE

    My CCTV system here will ONLY work in IE in comparability mode.... So currently I have a windows 7 PC running the big screen with the Cameras web client open monitoring the cameras.

    However, I wanted to put Linux on this machine but I cant figure out how to get the cams to work in another browser, I've booted up a live cd and tried Firefox but the cameras dont display - not even the login page displays and the same thing happens in Firefox on Windows and the same thing happens in Chrome.

    Any Ideas ?


    Thanks

    Can you manually install IE through Wine?

    Better than a web interface can you grab the feed directly with VLC. It will open mjpeg and other streams provided with the right URL. What is the brand and model of the cammera, someone may have already done it so you won't have to pull apart their webpage or wireshark it to find the stream. Not all of them do it but they most do.

    You could try Virtualbox with an XP-SP3 virtual machine. See if that does the job.

    Do you know WHY it only works with IE? [or is that what you're trying to find out?]

    Based on some of the ones I've used in the past, probably an activex plugin.

    Ah, then your options are pretty limited.

    If Win7 is working fine, why not just leave it?

    Which in turn means you don't have an IE licence either

    well virtual box will run 7 too if he has a 7 licence , or vista.. Just XP is a little less heavy on the VM.
