Thank you for creating CameraProxy, plus a question

This is such a great program. I didn't want to open my ports to my cameras, so CameraProxy is perfect. Is there any way to limit users to specific cameras?

Thanks.

It does have rudimentary user access limits. You can use the Minimum User Permission setting on cameras along with the Permission Level setting of users. If you set a permission level of 0 for any camera, then it will be accessible without logging in. Any other permission setting from 1 to 100 will require the user to log in to a user account with at least that permission level. Level 100 is the same as an administrator account, which would allow a person to access the /admin/ functionality.

Also worth noting, when any user logs in, their user name and encrypted password gets stored in a cookie with a very long expiration date (over a year). As long as the cookie does not get cleared and the user name or password does not get changed on the admin pages, that browser will remain authenticated with CameraProxy for a very long time. So be careful with where and how you log in.

If you are looking for a more powerful application for camera streaming, I recommend you try Blue Iris. It is not free, but it is actively updated and very well supported, and its feature set blows CameraProxy away. Most of my camera-related development time goes into building a custom web interface for Blue Iris, which you can find here: https://www.ipcamtalk.com/showthread.php/93-I-made-a-better-remote-live-view-page
