Does anyone know if there exists such a thing? The CGO3+ app is great for viewing video on iOS or Android but I need it to work on a Windows platform. Thanks

I read somewhere that VNC PLAYER would play a live stream. Just connect the machine to the WiFi and press play I guess. You couldn't press record though I'm guessing. Have a look... Hope it works for you. Cheers, Chris.

Hi,

you could actually do everything on windows as on android. All the commands are basically GET requests with a pretty basic syntax. As Christoph said, the easiest thing is to use VLC or any other player which is capable of RTSP streams and open rtsp://192.168.42.1/live

To start or stop recording you have to initialize the camera first:
http://192.168.42.1/cgi-bin/cgi?CMD=INIT_CAMERA

then you could use this command to start recording:
http://192.168.42.1/cgi-bin/cgi?CMD=START_RECORD

and this one to stop:
http://192.168.42.1/cgi-bin/cgi?CMD=STOP_RECORD

to take pictures call this:
http://192.168.42.1/cgi-bin/cgi?CMD=TAKE_PHOTO

Put these commands in a small webpage to call them with a button-press and you're ready to go :)

Sorry, but I'm having trouble with 'open rtsp://192.168.42.1/live.' How do you open this? I'm using VLC media player v2.2.4 and went to Media/Open Network Stream and entered 'rtsp://192.168.42.1/live' in the the network URL box, and pressed Play. After a few seconds I get multiple errors such as 'Connection failed: VLC could not connect to "192.168.42.1:554". Note that it has added ":554" to the end of the URL I entered. Would you be able to give me step-by-step instructions to access the video stream? By the way, my laptop running Win8.1 does not detect a WiFi signal from the Typhoon H even thought the ST16 next to it is showing me the video stream. Many thanks for this idea and also for mwelr's.

Well, you must be connected to the cam before you can stream the live video signal.

I've just heard from another source that only an iOS platform will now work with the CGO3 app--it seems because of one of the recent firmware upgrades. So, Android will not work any longer and Windows won't work with VLC or with Android emulation software. I'd love to hear if any of the above is wrong, but I'm going to concentrate on a solution with an Apple iOS platform. Thanks for your help.

I don't think that is correct. I just connected to mine using an android phone and it works. I am using the latest firmware.

I have a related issue. I've mounted a second camera and I'm using the 903W transmitter which uses an app called WIFIAV to play video on android or apple. I'd like to play it with VLC player but I can't seem to get something right. I can play the CGO3 just like you say with the 192.168.42.1/live but when I enter 192.168.72.33/live which is the url of the WIFIAV transmitter I get a "can't connect" error message.

Sorry for necroposting but this is amazing info! I'm trying to use a Raspberry Pi to get a dedicated video stream for use in live sports streaming, and this is exactly what I needed!
