one can use IE to open up the address for the cameras which are similar to these:
and these links opens a live feed to the camera in IE(using active-x) or firefox.
if i setup the camera with static public ip, then i can view it from anywhere using a browser.
this is what i am looking to buy but only if it will work with roku.

I have a Linksys WVC54GCA web cam I would love to be able to add as a Roku Channel. Someone mentioned maybe being able to do this with a camera that does HLS, I think my webcam does this. Though I am not sure.
