However, if you feel your subject and poll are just for fun please post it in the Just For Fun forum.I have bought a a YI webcam and it has arrived today.I did not manage to connect to the camera to YI home app on android, at that point I scanned the barcode which could be found on the camera manual and downloaded Mi Home. You need to follow these steps below to fix the cam: * Turn off the camera * Pull out the memory card * format the sd in FAT32 * extract and copy the firmware file to the memory card home (link for the firmware I use) https://yadi.sk/d/KCkz0xjpjm K5o * Turn on the camera and hold down the reset button for 6-8 seconds * Turn off the camera * Insert the memory card * Turn on the camera * Wait for about 5 minutes (will flash orange, then turn orange, then speak Chinese and then will flash orange) * Connect the camera via the camera app My personal recommendation is to create a new MI account for your application because of any previously stored location and camera data. * Turn off the camera * Pull out the memory card * format the sd in FAT32 * extract and copy the firmware file to the memory card home (link for the firmware I use) https://yadi.sk/d/KCkz0xjpjm K5o * Turn on the camera and hold down the reset button for 6-8 seconds * Turn off the camera * Insert the memory card * Turn on the camera after i turn on the camera, it prompting "system resetting" then " waiting for connection", waited for 5mins then connect through phone and still getting the " only in china" message This post was edited by ATH4real at , Jun-04-2016 You have a few chioces to make a Chinese Ants webcam work. Downgrade firmware to a previous verison such as K or L (you may have to downgrade in small steps, ie to go from 188.8.131.52C to A, then to 184.108.40.206M and then to K version, You have to try what works for you).With this app the camera successfully connected to the phone and requested a firmware update. This way you can never upgrade your cam to newer software, but for most users it will be ok. Disable the "call home" function in the camera so that you can upgrade firmware to newest version without problem.Now you can be on newest firmware and camera will work outside of China :-). i've upgraded the firmware of my yi cctv then it spoke in english. But, after a few minutes, I realized that my yi cctv didn't working anymore. I cannot use this camera because the firmware update!!!!!Just follow the instructions here, and read the comments as well: https://diy.2pmc.net/solved-xiaomi-xiao-yi-ant-home-camera-can-used-china/ Please note that with 220.127.116.11C you will get a YI watermark on your videos. In time, maybe someone can find solution to turn a CN (Chinese) version to a US (International) version. Hi, I have EU firmware from contact support in Poland -they send me a file home and Then I found this forum and followed those steps, and voila!! To be more precise, it worked for me for a while, till i installed the new camera firmware via Mi Home v3.4.9 andorid app (i've tried the i OS app too with the same result).The term "webcam" (a clipped compound) may also be used in its original sense of a video camera connected to the Web continuously for an indefinite time, rather than for a particular session, generally supplying a view for anyone who visits its web page over the Internet.Some of them, for example, those used as online traffic cameras, are expensive, rugged professional video cameras.

The topics here are sometimes serious and sometimes not (variety is welcome).Then the camera and app would work as if we lived in China. Is there a chance to work this firmware on CN camera with official Google Play Yi home? After when i first heard the 'this camera can only be used within china' promt, i manually reset many times, but the reconnection was ineffective.After it managed to connect to my wifi network (blue led continuosly on), i immediately alerted with the same message!!Discussions that turn to heated arguments must be taken to a private message forum.
