You can if there is an IP Camera to DirectShow driver/filter. In the video world, they call the drivers "Filters". It's more like an "adapter" or "interface" which conforms the video to a standard.

We use DirectShow, because it's fast and accessable. I am not sure, but i think this might be a filter: http://www.webcamxp.com/download.aspx

Don't quote me on that link. Read the product description first:)

Hi,i just got my ez-b in and can't get ip camera to work with DirectShow driver/filter.
I tried a foscam and panasonic bl camera no luck at all.Need to get ip camera to work because computer running ARC is now with robot (using WiFi and 3 miles apart) :(

Hi Pittom,

Check out one of these:

ManyCam

or

WebcamXP

I am guessing that your IP cam is not jpeg or mjpeg....that is the case I have with one of mine. Both the programs above can set up a connector/filter/driver whatever you want to call it to bridge the video stream to a detectable video interface within EZB. Both of these have freeware versions but they are limited with what you can do. I am actually considering buying the webcamxp (webcam 7).

Good Luck!
