Have you been clicking on "Start Preview" when you've changed the IP address?

Can you see an image from the webcam when you use the software that cam with the webcam?

Greetings!
Try to copy and paste the i.p. address in your browser, see if you can access the camera through your browser.
I have a similar setup as you, with my webcam, but, there are a few more parm's needed to access it.

In your screen grab the URL is not correct.  The URL shown in the earlier post was

Code: [Select]
http://192.168.1.253:8080/CgiUserLogin?Language=0
Try that and let us know what happens...

Which Panasonic webcam, I though you were trying to get your Panasonic BL-C140 working?
Do you have a second Panasonic webcam connected as well?

On the last screen shot showing the image, if you right click on the image does it give you any options?  If you can find a link direct to the image that may work for your WD setup...

Or...

Can you view the html of that page?  See if there is a link in the html to the image being shown...

the thread title suggests you had this working at one stage?
