Enable internal web server
If enabled, VideoMonitor will activate its own internal web server, allowing you to setup your own webcam mini-website on your own computer.

Publish timed snapshots
If enabled, your "timed snapshots" will be published to your web server.

Publish motion snapshots
If enabled, the snapshots triggered by your motion detector will be published to your web server.

Enable client pull automatic refresh
If enabled, the web server will periodically update the webcam snapshot in your visitors' browsers, to ensure that they always see the latest snapshot on the page.

Refresh interval
Controls how often the webcam snapshot is refreshed on the webpage.

Stop refreshing after
Controls how long the webcam snapshot is refreshed for; after this time period expires, the page will stop refreshing. (This ensures that if someone visits your page, then forgets to close their browser, they won't consume your bandwidth unnecessarily.)

Bind to port
Controls the port on which the internal web server listens. If you don't know what this is, you shouldn't need to change it.

Max simultaneous connections
Controls the maximum number of simultaneous connections to your website. Note that this does not control the maximum number of [i]visitors[i] browsing your web site at any given time; it simply limits the number of browsers that can [i]simultaneously[i] request a page from your server (at the exact same moment).

Require authentication
If enabled, visitors to your web site will be required to enter the specified username and password prior to viewing your web page. If the visitor does not know the correct username and password, he will be denied access to your webcam.
