What is meant by "internet facing"

The common use case is that people add these cameras to a WiFi network that is connected via a router to the Internet. Being able to hack the camera from the LAN side, which is what the video seems to demonstrate, is of course a major vulnerability, but the real-world problem most people face is attackers getting to the cameras from the WAN side.

I possibly haven't had enough coffee yet this morning, but how do you find a Vstarcam behind a NAT and send it one of these packets if you haven't hacked the cloud protocol?
