i am in the same boat
i have a cctv setup through a dvr which i can view anywhere in the world online on my laptop, but the play book wont show the video
i think it is because the dvr video uses activex or something
i too need help and advice on this
i also have the video on my torch using the free app, ASee

There is ASee for Android. I tried loading it up using the Android Player-- got program running but wasn't able to connect to cameras. I suspect it is merely a matter of time before Asee can run via Android player. Hopefully, a new leak of Android Player will fix that.

be sure that you have the ports opened and forwarded.
you need to open a different port for phones
you might have to check the 'compatability tab' on interent explorer.
the only way i was able to view on my torch was to have a dyndns account for it.
if you have one, be sure there isnt any blank spaces after your password or address, since it will cause problems. for some reason the software reads blank characters as input and it screws it up

If the camera's use an IP address there are apps, if your camera's require you to use a website and that website uses a java, or active X plugin then you are out of luck since the PB does not support those YET. It IS possible, that support for java applets and active x plugins will be added to the PB browser at some point. Highly possible, the PB certainly has the horse power, and is already java friendly.

I am in the same boat here, just located this thread. I haven't found a workaround yet though ...
Edit: I see 2 apps in App World
1. IP CAM - has a small list of cameras that they support, my 2 D-link cameras are not supported
2. MC Megapixel IP Viewer - is a proprietary program that supports only their cameras
Come on Android Player!!

Are there any updates to this question?
I have a generic Everview Security DVRand would like to view the cameras on the Playbook. It too has activeX software that prevents it from being seen on the webpage.
There is an andriod app for the Z10 that works fine called ViewCam but I dont know how to get it to work on the playbook?

You can request that it be converted to a BAR on this thread:
Ask Koz to convert APK to BAR Apps for Playbook
NOTE: The PB Android emulator is dated at best. Even apps that are compatible with the Android versoin on the PB (Gingerbread) are not guaranteed to work when converted.

okay, i converted the ViewCam for andriod to a BAR file and I can load it up and set it up and get access to the remote controls and settings of the dvr, but when I go to the live view feed it completely crashes.
Is there any way to get an older version of the ViewCam for gingerbread? that might work? where would I get it?

Does bdmss work on the playbook? I can't locate it for the playbook?
I have converted a handfuls of .apk programs, but none of them work. The viewcam ap will load and give me access to the settings , buts crashes and closes when I try to open a camera view.
