- Installing ActiveX Control on your Computer when Using the Video Camera
Some Internet browsers require ActiveX Control software to be installed on your computer to view a video on your Linksys wireless video camera. The camera’s web-based setup page will inform you with a prompt that ActiveX Control needs to be installed in your computer.
NOTE: The video output of the camera will be recorded as MP4 files. You will be able to view it using a media player with codec that can read MP4 videos. Examples of this would be Windows Media Player, K-Lite Codec Pack and XviD MPEG 4 Codec.
