PY Software Web Services
 At PY Software Web Services, we are dedicated to go beyond simple hosting by offering powerful value added services that empower our users with the tools to build own Internet surveillance system in no time with few clicks of mouse.
 
Streaming Video through Web Server
This service helps to access video on surveillance computer through Internet even if this computer completely protected by firewall. Surveillance computer connects to our web server like any other Internet browser does and firewall doesn't mention this connection as restricted.
Another benefit of this service - unlike direct access to the surveillance computer when all viewers must share single internet connection, this service provides high frame-rate broadcasting to the unlimited auditory because broadcasting is performed from our web server which has high speed broadband connection.
 
How does this service work?
Surveillance computer sends video and audio to the PY Software web server. Web server records this live content and streams it to the viewers.

To watch this video, viewers don't need to connect to the surveillance computer directly; they point Internet browser to the address like: http://yourname.web2cam.com, which is page of this surveillance computer on the PY Software web server.

This page contains all necessary code to playback video from surveillance computer. You can customize this page according to your desire and protect it by password that authorized users only have access to your content.
 
To activate Web Streaming:To watch your camera, type the
 
http://<loginname>.web2cam.com
 
address in your internet browser.
 
 Dynamic IP Service
 
If you broadcast from your computer, you should provide your viewers with IP address of your computer. However, if you have a dial-up connection, DSL line, or cable modem, then IP address of your computer changes every time you connect.
To get rid of this problem you can use Dynamic IP Service, which gives your surveillance system a permanent address on the internet.
A special web address is reserved for you once you sign up for PY Software Dynamic IP service.
This web address is based on a User ID, which you receive after signing up.
For example, if your User ID is billsmith, the Internet address of your surveillance computer is http://my.activewebcam.com/cgi-bin/ip.cgi?billsmith
Therefore, you can access your surveillance system easily.

How does this service work?
Surveillance computer sends own IP address to the PY Software web server. A viewer, to watch surveillance camera, points Web browser to the PY Software web server and being redirected to the IP address of surveillance computer.
