Sorry for the delay, super slammed in here of late…
Ok. I’m sure you have done this, but we need to take a step back.
If groov is working from the internet, then the camera (in proxy mode) should work as far as the video gadget is concerned.
When in proxy mode, groov simply polls the camera URL, grabs the image and stores it in its local data base.
When the client browser hits the groov page, all the elements get loaded from the db.
The router can not pick and chose which elements of the groov page it will let past and which ones it wont.
ALL the elements are on the groov URL and port number.
Ok, that said, here is how I would approach it.
Get the magic camera URL. This is often the hardest thing. It must be a single .jpg (generally) image.
It must work inside the network on at least Chrome and Firefox.
Each time you hit refresh on the browser, it should update the image in a flash.
It should not be a streaming video, just a single image.
Here are some URL’s that I found while looking for the ‘magic’ URL for your VivoTek IB8360;
(For all these, you may need to add the port number if it is anything other than 80).
If one of these do not return the static single image, then that is the very first place to start.
Once you have that, put it in the groov camera gadget, ensure proxy is set.
Save the page and view it.
Be sure and view it from outside your network. Some ISP’s will not let you loop back in and look at yourself.
I have Teamview setup to my house to test remote pages for this very reason.
You could use a cell phone with wifi turned off, this will force it onto the cell network.
Ok, all that said, to answer your questions;
