hi, i'm trying to test my ipcams on my laptop because my nvr hasn't arrived yet, but am finding it difficult to gather an image, i've managed to successfully ping the camera playing with static ip settings and log in to the camera but i keep getting this black looping loading screen for the camera.

i'm using a static address of 192.168.1.1 as 192.168.1.108 doesn't seem to work for me.
i have also noticed a double default gateway, is this a problem?

IPv4 Address. . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.1
Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 0.0.0.0
192.168.1.1

Make and model of camera ?
IP address of camera ?
Does it require a browser plug in ?
How many cameras are plugged into your network ?

If requires a plugin use browser palemoon32 or internet Internet explorer

no

it doesn't matter anyway, i think it was just my laptop being crappy, changed the codec to 265 and its now showing images albeit rather slowly.
was shitting myself because all 4 of my cams were doing this lol

thanks for replying anyway
