Do you think my Microsoft VX-3000 cam will work remotely? I connected it and was able to record and detect movement directly on the computer it was attached to. If it is possible to remotely use it, what would the Jpeg Stream URL for it be? The mms://....... string? Or what would it be for Microsoft cams? Also, the IP address-I suppose I need to use my computer's public one, right? Thank you.

The Microsoft LifeCams are directly attached to computers. They are not IP cameras, and can only be seen directly from the computer they are plugged into.

Using WebCam Monitor, you can stream the video from your camera to other computers. In that case, yes, you would use the mms:// stream. The actual URL to use will be displayed in the program's Event Log when you start streaming.

If you would like to view your camera over the Internet, you may have to use Port Forwarding. The technique to do this is explained in our article, Configure Your Camera and Router for Internet Streaming.
