Descriptions and examples of Blue Iris Webcasting technologies:

 
ActiveX/MPEG
  • Used on the default home page
  • Very efficient - makes a single request, and then receives a continuous stream of temporally-compressed images.
  • Uses a C++ ActiveX component, which requires DirectX 8 and IE 5.5 or better
  • Browser and user must accept component download and installation
JAVA/JPEG
  • Uses a Java Applet
  • Makes a single request, and then receives a continuous stream of JPEG images
  • Browser must support and run Java Applets
  • The Java applet must have privileges to access the Internet
JPEG refresh

Sized for a Cell Phone

  • The simplest
  • Uses Java Script to continuously refresh a standard HTTP image
  • Least efficient - each frame is independently requested
  • Major advantage: compatible with virtually all browsers and networking configurations
The Windows Media stream
  • Full license version only
  • Works only when you have selected Windows Media in the camera's webcasting setup page
  • Efficient stream, but somewhat inefficient CPU utilization
  • Users an embedded Windows Media Player ActiveX object
