  • Increased network timeouts
  • Made mjpeg video decoder more fault tolerant
  • Fixed service installation failure when using a Windows 8 Microsoft Account
  • Attention: removed UDP networking because it was ContaCam's proprietary streaming protocol not compatible with any current standard (it's still possible to stream a video source through the web server, see this FAQ entry)
