Hi,

I’ve tried your plug-in but it doesn’t work with IE nor Chrome (latest version).
My cam is gxv3601ll with 1.0.4.38fw.


#4

Is there a way to get the IP cameras to report in on a custom webpage so we can have custom pages setup by location? With the WebControl plugin, I am unsure how to do this vs other products like Axis has that just use a standard stream on the page.


#5

Plug-in doesn’t work with Chrome.

Looks like the latest Chrome is hard blocking NPAPI plugins, a move that Google announced in 2013, started implementing in 2014 and seems to be getting really serious with the latest Chrome build. This article (https://www.ghacks.net/2014/11/24/how-to-re-enable-plugins-in-chrome-that-are-blocked-by-google/) shows how to re-enable NPAPI plugins. Please note that the article points out that as of September this year, this (the blocking of NPAPI plugins) will become permanent, without any workarounds. Looks like Grandstream needs to keep this in mind for future Chrome support (after September 2015).

the plug-in seems to be only working with firefox and IE (not with Chrome, not with Opera, and not with Microsofts Edge)

this limitation might render your products useless in the near future. you seriously need to consider moving away from NPAPI


#8

do you intent to update the plugin?

because without plugin for firefox/chrome your products become useless crap.


#9

You cannot upgrade plugin, they must make new http.
Format that was used earlier is turned off both Firefox and Chrome,
It is still supported in Seamonkey and IE (propably few more), you can try those.

I am aware of this.
however it is just bad craftsmanship and a generla bad marketing decision to ignore chrome and firefox.
if I would be a new customer I would not buy a grandstream cam if I know about this issue.

This has passed a tipping point. It only works in the obviously obsolete IE and some obscure browsers that trai in the dev effort because they’re so minimally supported/in-use.

It’s time to address this matter, or drop the products.


#12

Because this is no longer supported on any browsers that I have, how can I remotely look at my cameras???

Any idea when this will be fixed? I wont open a helpdesk ticket because everyone that I have does not get resolved. Very Sad!


#13

Indeed, very sad that there is no comment of gssupport on this big Issue. Had a few Properties where I installed Grandstream IP Cameras, but sind about 6 Months I switched because Grandstream ignores the Issue, at least in there Support Forums.


#14

The plugins are not so easy to handle. It would be good to change to HTML5…


#15

Trying to shine a little sunlight on the situation re the loss of NANPI plugins.


#16

HELPPP it’s a great problem the issue of plugin.

Ok I installed Firefox 49, it works, but it isn’t the SOLUTION

Ok I installed Seamonkey and it works… but it ISN’T THE SOLUTION!!!

We need to have something easier!


#17

Most of the best wireless security camera system have this feature. Just like what I have, works for me conveniently.


#18

It is shameful that this does not work on any grandstream cameras. I wan’t to recommend grandstream equipment across the board, but this is a ridiculous deal breaker that makes grandstream hardware look old and antiquated. PLEASE FIX THIS!
