Configuring Broadcasting Settings
Broadcasting lets other users connect to the PC running WebCam Monitor and view live video. The number of users that can connect is limited by the bandwidth of your Internet connection and the resources of the PC. Broadcasting uses advanced Windows Media streaming technology to provide you with the best quality media broadcast.
To configure broadcast settings, right click on camera and select Edit Camera >> Broadcast.

View broadcast from IP address: All the IP addresses configured for your machine will be listed in this drop down. By default, the first IP address of your computer will be selected. If multiple IP addresses are configured on your PC, then select the IP address from which you want to Broadcast.

Broadcast Port: WebCam Monitor will automatically fill in a port number. The first camera to start broadcasting will default to port 1030, the next 1031, and so on.
