Hi guys. I am trying to view a few webcam streams on my duo2 but need some guidance if possible. I know how to stream a rtmp address and a m3u8 address but havn`t mastered the mjpeg as of yet. I can use webcamviewer plugin however but it does not refresh automatically.  Is there any software out there which will refresh automatically? I was thinking possibly Ts media or iptv plugin which could be tweaked somehow  to play http cams ,, Thanks

If you have the url for you webcam stream you can normally simply add it like an IPTV channel.
But the problem can be the video format used by the webcam it can happens that it is not supported by your STB. Since STB are not media player nor PC theyb support less video format.

I think that the Webcam viewer used by OpenPLi is:

 

https://github.com/O...er/webcamviewer

 

Other images use perhaps a newer version of it. May be:

on a PC I would go with
ffplay http://83.56.31.69/mjpg/video.mjpg
it is even refreshing the camera, VLC needs ages to start

People were still wearing t-shirts and shorts here this week, and it's been around freezing... :)

 

edit: Looks like Alicante, in Spain...

You don't have to care about the github it is to explain you that the same plugin name in different images doesn't means that it is 100% the same plugin.
