  1. Add the network camera to the trusted sites list in the Internet Explorer as follows:
    Open Tools > Internet Options > Security > Trusted Sites.
    Press the "Sites..." button
    Add the camera's IP-address (wildcards can be used to add subnets).
  2. Save the settings and close Internet Explorer.
  3. Install the AXIS Media Control viewing component by running the .msi package: Download files.

  4. Note that MPEG-4, H.264 and AAC decoder (where applicable, i.e. see specifications of the particular product functionality) are not included in the .msi package mentioned above.
