I need help to start the camera D-Link DCS-6100lh with OctoPrint

D-Link DCS-6100LH

I tried to edit and write various values in octoprint.txt but without success

My current values are:
camera_usb_options="-r 1920x1080 -f 15 -y"

lsusb output:
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0003 Linux Foundation 3.0 root hub

OctoPrint Version 1.8.2
OctoPi version 0.18.0

Is it possible to pair this camera at all, this is not an IP camera.

The camera is not USB, it communicates with WiFi. It also uploads its video to the cloud which you can view with an app. It cannot easily be used by OctoPrint. I'd suggest you find either an RPi camera or a cheap USB camera. This topic should give you somewhere to start.

After you connect camera to wifi network check if there is a stream at http://camera ip address/video/mjpg.cgi

No, nothing. I only see stream trough mydlink app. Probably, there's no chance to grab this stream because this is a WiFi cloud camera, not USB or IP camera...

Connect to D-link cameras says rtsp stream is available (which is not handled by octoprint at the moment) but maybe restreaming to mjpeg (using ffmpeg) could be done.
