    @GeekNews Todd is it possible to watch the live feed using a Google Nexus 7? That’s all I have for the next day or so.

    You can watch the live feed on the Nexus 7, however you do have to install the Flash Player Apk to do this. If you google “watching flash video on Nexus 7″ you will find a lot of tutorials on how to do this. Once you do this then you can play the video on any flash capable browser. However the video will not play directly in the browser but will play in a secondary video player that you choose. I hope that answers your question.
