Running Hikvision on Linux

To put it mildly, it is annoying that, currently, only Internet Explorer on Windows will still allow you to view Hikvision cameras.

This removal of support for the vast range of  video protocols out there, not just Hikvision, makes the simple task of viewing cameras a total pain. Users are familiar with Firefox, Chrome et al and don't want to be using dedicated programs such as, in Hikvision's case, IVMS-4200.

To make matters even worse, IVMS-4200 is available for Windows and Mac but not Linux. Hikvision did release a Linux version  but it has now disappeared without trace or explanation.

However, you CAN download it from here: Fill your boots.
