Yes.  You can always browse to the image directly.  On StarDot cameras you can use:

http://ipaddress/netcam.jpg

On StarDot Video Servers:

http://ipaddress/jpeg.cgi?0  (Camera 1 = jpeg.cgi?0, Camera 2 - jpeg.cgi?1. etc)

If you would like to view the image(s) live, you will need to upgrade your firmware to 1.1.61 or higher (This applies to Express Servers, NetCam XL, SC and H.264 models only). Please contact support@stardot.com to request this version.

If you wanted to view the image from a web page via web enabled phone, you would have to use a javascript refresh instead of the Standard CaptureClient applet.  Here's an example of a Javascript refresh script.

<script language="javascript">
var refreshrate=5;                 //SECONDS BETWEEN REFRESH
var image="camera0.jpg";     //IMAGE NAME
var imgwidth=640;                 //IMAGE WIDTH
var imgheight=480;                   //IMAGE HEIGHT
function refresh(){
document.images["pic"].src=image+"?"+new Date();
setTimeout('refresh()', refreshrate*1000);}
document.write('<IMG SRC="'+image+'" NAME="pic" ID="pic" WIDTH="'+imgwidth+'" HEIGHT="'+imgheight+'";">');
if(document.images)window.onload=refresh;
</script>

In this example, the camera is uploading 'camera0.jpg' to the website. On an html page in the same directory you would copy and past this code, then set your you would set the Refresh time to how often you want the image to refresh on your page. Next, your width and height to what your camera is currently using.
