Using GH3 as ip Camera in Wirecast
on Mar 25, 2014 at 11:13:16 pm

I was wondering if it is possible to use the GH3 as an ip camera. I haven't been succesful yet to determine the ip address of my GH3 but maybe someone knows if it could be done or not.

Panasonic GH3?
Have you looked at wifi setup in the camera's manual?

Hey Craig, thank you for the fast response!

yes I have checked the manual and i've also found the menu item where I can find the MAC address and ip address of the camera. Strangely enough there is no ip address, or maybe it is assigned upon connection.
I've seen a thread at personal-view.com where you can control your GH3 from a browser. One of the things is to know the ip address of the GH3 but I can't figure that part out.

As there is an ip camera function in wirecast I was hoping to use the GH3 as an ip-camera (using its live view) but maybe that is asking too much of the GH3.

I'm loving wirecast though! Setting it up with new mac pro and 3 gh3's + 3 black magic ultrastudio mini recorders.

I'm sure if you dig you'll find the secret.
Personally, I found the IP address that GoPro uses to send video to its iPhone app and have brought that in to Wirecast which is http://10.5.5.9:8080/live/amba.m3u8
That's the address plus the HTTP Stream Playlist.

There must be an equivalent for the GH3.

I see mention of it here

GH3 IP address discovery

If you're not directly connected to the wifi ssid provided by the GH3, As @Vitaliy_Kiselev pointed out, you need to know the ip address of the GH3 to use the web remote, and find/replace all the "192.168.0.1" in the "requests.html" file with the IP address of the GH3. There is a way to make that automatic : make the application able to mimic the SSDP protocol behavior, which imply UDP and multicast... Or you can do a port scan (on port 50001) on all the machine in the same subnet as your machine, but you have to retrieve your subnet.

Anyone interested in coding this is very welcome (I'm afraid Javascript will not be a good tool to determine your own subnet...)

Edit v04 : I've managed to discover the GH3 IP address using Java, but I need to make a few changes in the web page to provide the ability to the end user to read it on the Java window title, and write it down on a text field of the web page.

Yes this is what I found in the first place but it is kind of like chinese to me. Are they saying I need to do a port scan on port 50001 on my mac? I guess I have some homework to do as I'm a total nitwit when it comes to all these wireless protocol things.
I'll check personal view and ask around!

i've been able to get the ip address but no luck getting video. I think this camera is designed to be hooked up to lumix link only

Unless they're doing something proprietary you may not have all the info you need.
The GoPro needs the http playlist info, for example, not just the IP address.

Your comment makes me realize something, all i did was punch in the numbers, but I didn't put http:// in front of it!

I'll take a longer look at it this weekend, I guess it ain't over till its over :-)

Thanks!

Thanks Craig, I'll dig a bit deeper! I'll see if the guys at personal-view.com can give some insight, when I find out i'll post it here!
