I’ve got an IP security camera and it records using .264 file format. Now, these files cannot be played using a standard player, like VLC, PotPlayer etc, etc. Some people have managed it I couldn’t.
I did, however, find a program called HiPlayer which is included in HiP2P client program.
Also, the camera came with a CD here’s some of the software that was on it.
PLEASE NOTE, install the software at your own RISK!
