After the great help from the community and GitHub, I am slowly learning OpenHAB. My question now is how do I view Video stream on the MyOpenHAB?
I have IpCamera create HLS stream and on my Main UI, I have placed Video Card to show the stream. This is working well when access locally.
If I access remotely via myopenhab, the video stream won’t show. I believe this is due to the fact, Video Card source is local URL based on IpCamera HLS point. What is the correct way to make this video viewable remotely?
Summary Update for those having similar issues
In summary, we have following options for v3.0.2.
- VPN - This depends on our own network, but in my case even HLS video stream works really well to the point it is nearly instant loading. It just requires me to turn on VPN connection each time.
- SiteMap - This option does not require VPN setup, but myopenhab setup is required. With this video element on Sitemap works with MJPEG, but not for HLS. Other drawback is at the time of this writing, this is inconsistent on iOS app version. I have to fresh open the app each time to see the MJPEG stream i.e. reopening will give me blank. Also performance wise, VPN HLS faster.
