Connecting to an IP camera using a Mac and only receving a white screen where video should be but the menu has loaded ok

If you are connecting to a LILIN IP camera using an Apple Mac and you experience the camera's web browser page loading as expected by never providing video.

Check that you have the latest version of Java installed, this is available here

If installing the latest version of java doesn't change the issue you are experiencing, do the following:

Open 'Terminal' and type the code below in the 'Terminal' window:

Qtdefaults write TransportSettings HTTP 80

If the code has been entered successfully you will receive the following message:

QuickTime streaming has been set to use the HTTP protocol over port: 80
