Tasker chrome popup of camera
« on: July 20, 2017, 05:25:16 am »
So Ive done the easy thing of when my doorbell is pushed, tasker (through autovera) registers the push and tasker executes a BrowseURL=http://192.168.1.10/video.cgi? which pops up a chrome tab that shows the front door camera.

For the ppl that use tasker.... how can I close the tab after X seconds and not "reopen" multiple chrome tabs if someone pushes the doorbell more than once?

Many thanks

The other way I have tried is using a tasker scene with webview to a URL however webview doesnt parse the username and password to my camera

http://IPADDRESS:PORT_NUMBER/mjpeg.cgi?user=[USERNAME]&password=[PASSWORD]

Any ideas?

Have you thought about using tinycam monitor? It integrates with tasker and instead of using chrome you could have tasker trigger tinycam to show a floating window of the camera and then close the floating window after x seconds.

This is exactly the sort of thing I wanted to see
