Not running on anything but ChromeOS is a joke. Too bad, this used to be a good camera.

Amcrest software is dated by 15 years. A workaround is to use Microsoft Edge and put it in Internet Explorer compatibility mode.

Complete joke, only works on chrome OS... no intention for them to make it work in chrome browser like it used to... don't buy cameras from these guys. Get some from a reputable manufacturer that will not force obsolescence on you.

This works OK in chromeOS & I do wish it worked in Chrome browser.

Actually really bad. Do not give them any money. If you already bought a camera, find a way to refund it. Chat support is also garbage.

Does not work. Amcrest is garbage. Used to work until they stopped supporting IE/Edge. The Google Chrome extension never works. Will never purchase Amcrest again. It's clearly a known issue they're aware of and they will not fix.
