I finally was able to remotely access my WVC80N remotely. However from my work computer I can get into the Web setup window but when selecting the view video get the message in the WVC80N web window "Video for other Platform/OS"
My work computer is XP. Able to view remotely from home and other computers.

Sounds like you may be using a browser like Firefox and something is going on. First thing is try the snapshot video mode, to see if you can get a snapshot.
This URL would be http://yourname.Mylinksyscam.com:xxxx/img/snapshot.cgi
(where xxxx is the TCP port the cam is on)
Then, if that shows a static JPG image, you can then try firefox using the MJPG mode
Most likely this will work, IE can't do MJPG mode, try another browser and eventually you'll get the video to pop up.

You might also try sending the jpeg images to an FTP server and then viewing the images from there.
Hope this helps.

I have been using this camera for quite a while now and recently purchased a few new ones. On the new units
I can watch video just fine for days on end but then suddenly get this nasty message "Video for other Platform/OS"
instead. The only solution I have found is to power cycle the camera which fixes the problem for a few days but
is a real prob for cameras that are not local to my location! This is a BUG in this version of the camera
v1.1.01 build 01 Has this been fixed?
(Edited off topic remark. Thanks!)

This is a bug! The best fix for the WVC54GCA is to downgrade the firmware back to V1.00R24.Note: once this
message appears the video is unaccessable until a power reset or a reload of the firmware occurs. Reloading
The original firmware V1.00R24 fixes the problem permanently but unfortunately this bug has propagated to
the new WVC80N cameras firmware and one can not load V1.00R24 onto that unit which makes that
Camera useless in remote locations when one wishes to grab video using wget..
While yes I am using firefox as a browser in general, As I said once this message appears the only video available is the
5 second ftp upload from the motion detector It does not mater if I switch to Explorer on an XP platform or try to suck
video using wget it just does not send video period!

Hi I do have a WVC80N with Zyxel P660HW router. I am able to view it remotely without any issues except for my work location. I get a black screen in place of video when I connect to it from work. When I take my work comuter home, I am able to see the video but not while at work. Right now I am using IE8. I am able to see the snapshot succefully at work if that helps.
