Hi Pavlo,

Pelco media player is a software that you have to install on your PC.

Re: Pelco Media Player (ActiveX) should be downloadable from IP camera itself.

Yea I know that I can download it from pelco site. But what I mean is: pelco media player should be downloadable from ip camera (like all manufacturers in the market do) or in camera should be direct link using which you may download that ActiveX not just pelco.com

All this about more convenience for end user. I think at list new IL cameras should support mentioned above.

Interesting ideas - hosting the file on the camera might not be the best idea, but linking to the download site on Pelco.com is a good idea.

I'll make sure to pass that idea along.

Placing ActiveX in camera is like standard through all manufacturers. And every system engineer or end user expect to find it there. I understood that ActiveX with size of 40MB is quite big. So our R&D should also work to reduce it's size.

ActiveX installation in most major corporate networks in North America is not allowed. Pelco has released an updated Pelco Media Plugin to improve playback of video that is deliberately not an ActiveX component. I am not ready to go back to R&D and ask them to develop, and then optimize an ActiveX component, when we have the Pleco Media Plugin released. As you can see from this link, it is 41MB, zipped. (Pelco Knowledge Base).  Without the PMP installed, the system should default to use Quicktime. I agree that a link from the camera to Pelco.com to download the Pelco Media Plugin is a good idea.

I found this

http://www.pelco.com/sites/global/en/sales-and-support/downloads-and-tools/media_plugin.page

And its about 2,5mb it would be great if it would work directly with the camera and able to show analytic as the old ActiveX. It works fine with IE, Firefox and Chrome. The Pelco ActiveX only works with IE and the benefits is that it is possible to show analytic.

It is 25MB, not 2.5, and it is the start of our updated components to work with all products. There is work to do on the firmware side to get this fully functional, and it is in the development queue.
