How to View Live Webcams and Security Camera Footage with Google

There are literally thousands of webcams and security cameras that broadcast images of offices, parks, street corners, and other public and private areas over the Internet. Since many cameras use known protocols to transmit live video streams over the web, it's quite easy to search for publicly accessible webcams. Sometime, it's even possible to control the cameras online.

The following Fox News footage discusses how to hack into security cameras.

These Google search links will get you started on finding live streaming feeds that are publicly accessible. Most of them are meant to be publicly viewable.

Search Hacker does this trick too, but can be used to find variety of file formats like wav, mp3, doc, cvs, wma, mpg, xls, zip, mid, mpeg, pdf, rar, avi, mov, txt and torrents. I tried Search Hacker and it works, but some results return errors. Can’t blame Search Hacker for that, just skip and try another result. http://www.searchhacker.com

Search Hacker has a sister site called Cam Hacker which can be used for searching unprotected live webcams. Search Hacker deservers to be in your bookmarks, however, if you are a hard working sucker, then you can try searching the hard way. http://www.camhacker.com


This article on TechWatch talks of some enhanced mechanisms for doing this. Very interesting.

Hi All,

We have built a database of Axis cameras found on the Internet, we are working on supporting other cameras soon. The database can be accessed directly at: http://www.drakepeak.net/index.php?content=livecams
