Great program, not difficult to use. I have a dedicated PC running this software for my 2 cameras. I had no crashes, the up time for this program has been about 2 years straight. The only time I've had to reboot the PC was due to Windows updates.

I'm using this app for quite long time and only I can say "well done build and stable" and it is free. The best free app for CCTV.

I am so very very happy to have found this! I switched from Conta to BlueIris because my camera didn't do MJpeg. I've always loved the ContaCam interface, and if anyone else out there was like me and stopped using it because transcoding in VLC made your CPU hurt, check it out again.

I've had it for half an hour and I'm blown away by how good it is. I have had IP cameras for years - Chinese clones - and I've had untold hassles getting them working with their own software. I've had ISpy in an attempt to get them monitored and saving shots to HDD and it wouldn't run. I've had other progs and all kinds of setups and hassles. It has always looked like a major task. ContaCam found my webcam immediately and each IP cam as quick as I gave it the IP addresses and logged in and displayed. Five minutes later I've got it saving snapshots. Done and dusted. Perfect. What a boon!

ContaCam is a Free Video Surveillance software and Live Webcam solution that runs natively in the Windows environment. It can be used in Ubuntu (or other Linux Distros) through the use of WINE. It is far easier to setup and use than Zoneminder or Motion - in my opinion.
