Question Help Connecting a Network Camera to etch

I have a new install of etch upgraded to 2.6.18-6-k7. I can connect on the netcam admin port (80) with Iceweasel OK. The netcam video port is 8080. I have added the camera in /etc/hosts and tried to connect via http://netcam:8080. I have tried creating a local path in guarddog at 8080, even disabled guarddog [offline], I still get a blank screen. I can see packets moving as the hub lights are blinking. I am not certain what package I need to display and record the mpeg in real-time. The camera is a (new) Edimax IC-1500 (not the WiFi version) it outputs mjpeg (no indication if it is mjpeg1 or mjpeg2). please advise.
