    Default Viewing external Foscam on Sony Bravia TV

    Ive just purchased an external forscam f1921w. At work at the moment, but ill be able to view it on all ipads, iphones etc once hooked up, however I would like the ability to view it on my 50" sony bravia smart tv.


    The only way i can think of doing this is through the tv's inbuilt web browser. I have a 4 port HDMI switch, used to connect my sky box, ps4 and revo to the tv, leaving one port free. I would like to utilise this some how.

    Is there some sort of USB/HDMI dongle i can use, chromecast? that i can just turn the relevant hdmi channel on and boom there is the cctv live feed?

    maybe i could utilise the revo in some way come to think of it, and have windows run a dual xbmc / cctv screen? assuming i would need some sort of cctv software...

    If the revo runs windows then you can either use a web browser or software if foscam supply any or a generic ipcam app should do. I'm not sure what you can do with a chromecast.

    I've had that camera working via the NowTV webcam channel before - it's at our lasses though and I've not used it for about a year but it definitely worked with that combo!

    thanks lads. just looking into the nowtv option, but i think the best setup would be to look for some decent ip cam software.

    any recommendations?
