IP Camera Viewer is a simple, neat and handy application that enables you to watch the live video stream from IP cameras either connected to your PC, or from remote locations. Besides the classical IP cameras, various types of webcams and USB cameras are also supported. In fact, this cool utility supports an impressive number of more than 2000 different IP camera models, so chances that the cameras you need to watch are not supported by this tool are extremely slim.
Another cool thing about IP Camera Viewer is that its stream playback interface allows watching 4 camera feeds simultaneously. This means that you can use IP Camera Viewer as an actual video monitoring system. Adjusting the camera's stream properties, including resolutions and frame rates, or color parameters like the saturation, brightness, contrast, is also possible.
I also like about IP Camera Viewer the fact that it provides a proprietary, digital zoom function which will let you magnify the image of a stream even when that camera doesn't come equipped by default with a zoom function.
In conclusion, IP Camera Viewer is a great tool for watching the streams of IP cameras, even though it still lacks features like embedded recording capabilities, support for motion detection, or the possiblity to schedule the monitoring to start and stop automatically. Nevertheless, it's free, lightweight, easy to use, and works like a charm.
