Hi Marc,

I have recently started to use the remote desktop functionality of xp pro. I found that if I start up CamUniversal using remote desktop on another PC then I get the message 'warning cold not create directshow filtergraph etc etc.' This only occurrs for the USB cameras connected to the remote PC.

CamUniversal starts up correctly if I start it directly on the PC. If I leave it running and then open up a remote desktop to the PC then I can see CamUniversal running as normal!!!

Have you got an ideas how I can execute camuniversal via remote desktop?

CamUniversal 3.5, Win XP Pro

4 USB Logitech webcams
QC Pro 4000 + Notebook Pro. Both on same PC and driver qc858enu.
QC Pro 5000 + Fusion. Both on same PC and driver qc1150enu.

See Homepage for QC Pro 5000 pictures.

Hi there!

just read your question and am glad to say that I got this working.
I've got a small pc (EEE Box) working for my 2 webcams and CamUni working on it.
The small PC is stored in a closet somewhere, so it won't get stolen when burgeled.
I access it hrough my WiFi network.

I use Real VNC for Remote Desktop, since the Windows version keeps giving me a hard time and not all control. And RealVNC also is multi-platform, so not just Windows.

There is a good woring Free Edition.
It is free to use (both the server set up at the computer you want to access and the client/viewer which you install on the computer you want to control it all with).

Installing was quite easy, but remember to open up the specific port in your router.

free edition:

Hope this will answer your question.

Kind regards,

(Amsterdam, NL)
