No Video Displaying For D-Link DCS-3220 Surveillance Camera

Earlier this week I brought some security cameras from my house to the computer shop to hookup not only for security but also so we could make some funny clips about what happens in the store and on the sidewalk outside of the store. I ended up bringing 4 cameras which included a D-Link DCS-3220 and three D-Link DCS-950G’s. The D-Link DCS-3220 is a much nicer surveillance camera than the D-Link 950G’s however it doesn’t have wireless capabilities like the DCS-950G. The first camera I attempted to get working was the DCS-3220 but almost immediately I ran into issues which made me think I had damaged the camera bringing it to the shop.

Someone at work asked me today if I could download a Youtube video for them so they could burn it to DVD for some project. I remembered being able to do this with a Firefox plugin but had forgotten which plugin I previously used. After a quick search I came up with the 1-Click Youtube Video Download Firefox plugin which made the task really easy. Follow the directions below to download Youtube videos.

Download And Record LiveStream.com Live Video Feeds Or On Demand

I was asked earlier to view and record a presentation being given on LiveStream.com. I figured this can’t be to hard I will just use a FireFox plugin and pull the video somehow but I couldn’t find an easy way to do it with a FireFox plugin. I finally settled on using some freeware classified as screen video capture software. This software allows you to zoom in on a specified size of the screen and capture sound, video, or both and save to an AVI file. Below are directions on how to set up and record video streams from LiveStream.com for free.

YouTube Video Playback Error: This Is A Private Video

I configured a WordPress plugin on my personal blog site to allow me to embed YouTube videos of my kids to share with the family. The plugin is called Youtube With Fancy Zoom and provides a great way to setup a gallery of YouTube thumbnails that when clicked on will open a YouTube movie in a overlay window. Anyway during configuring the plugin, videos, etc. I was logged in to YouTube and assumed everything was working properly. I emailed the new page to my wife to check out and she let me know that she was not able to view the videos because they were all labeled private. The message stating the YouTube videos were private along with how to share the videos with everyone are both detailed below.
