Home Security cctv

Hi
Not sure if this is forum - if its not please delete.

I am trying to get an IP wireless security camera working through a software package.
I have tried just about all of them and there is no easy setup motion, cctv, zeoma, zoneminder, ninja and all the main ones listed.
I have tried installing from website/Aur and have yet not had one that installs easily (no dependancies etc) and works.
The camera has a static IP via my router so is easy to remember.

Is there a way to view the camera through a web browser or a simple program.

Recommendations please.

Hi @music, I don't have a lot of experience with this myself but starting with generic, "clickbait" list like this might be a good place to start: The 7 Best DIY Security Camera Apps and Software for Linux

Shinobi, the last one on the list, looks pretty good--it looks like there is even a mobile phone client, so you can check your cameras on your phone. There is an ArchWiki page to help get it set up here: Shinobi - ArchWiki

I did the clickbait thing and installed all of them. Some take ages to install and make. I even installed some windows ones through WINE and still couldnt get one to run. THe setups are all different - some want http, others want rsmp(or something like that.
Some want ports, others want other ports. I have opened ports using firewalld.
Im currently trying to get an android emulator going but they recommend a minimum of 16GB ram - I only run 8.
If I want to run vlc player, I just install and voila.
To get cctv - it lloks like I need a degree in coding, russian, I.T. haha - Anybody else got one going that preferably runs through a browser - software is also fine.
