Camera URL works in browser but not in Vera
« on: July 02, 2018, 11:14:27 am »
I've taken my camera's rtsp video, transcoded it via vlc, and created mjpeg video accessible via an http URL. I can copy the URL and paste it in my browser and see video.

In Vera, UI7, when I try to set up the camera - it lets me. But afterwards, when trying to view the camera, it shows "Not Connected". Paste the URL into a browser (again) and it's streaming. The URL and IP address are accurate when you go to "Settings" --> "Advanced" --> "Extra Parameters"

Is there a way to get this to work?

Is this because it is trying to send commands to the camera?

I have the same issues ... trying to figure out why I can't see any image in Vera but access via a web browser works just fine.

I have tried two main methods:
1) direct to the camera - using multiple variants of http://<cam ip>/cgi-bin/currentpic.cgi  ;  there is an optimized version, a minimal version -- all work from browser but not vera
2) I use a RaspberryPi to create a nginx web server ; I have an HTML page hosted there that is the image of the camera  ;  I can load that by simply typing http://<rpi IP> in a browser

Vera never loads anything , and sometimes asks for user/pass authorizations when none are required.

Anybody understand why cgi actions work on some cameras but not others?

Thanks
