Foscam IPCWebcomponents plugin not working

Unread post by Rob190 » 2023-11-17, 18:01

Hi,
I have some old Foscam security cameras that use NPAPI plugins. They work with Edge in legacy IE mode. I was told Basilisk was one of the few browsers that still supports NPAPI. I've re-installed the IPCWebcomponents plugin but Basilisk doesn't appear to recognize it. Is there something else I need to do to enable it?

Note that IE does not use NPAPI, so you may want to double-check that the NPAPI components are installed.
And as Kris pointed out: architecture matters. you will need the plugin that matches your bit-ness of the browser.

Thanks! Yes I'd installed the x64 version. I know next-to-nothing about the way browser plugins work but it seems this one is just a dll so yes, it would have to match the app.

I was using Edge but MS have broken the IE compatibility mode in the latest release making it impossible to change some of the camera settings. So a big thank-you for keeping NPAPI support :-)
