  2. Paste http://tjeldcam.uib.no:24005 in the open field.

Multicast videostream
This is the preferred way to stream video because of lower load on the videoserver. Unfortunately, not all internet service providers (ISP) supports multicast so this may not be possible.

The multicast stream of the oystercatcher can be viewed by doing this:
