I was using Repetier-Server and decided to change for Octoprint. I installed the 0.17.0 OctoPi. My problem is with timelpase: my stream URL, to be more specific, it simply doesn't work (as shown in the picture below).
I'm currently using a D-Link IP camera 942-L. It is curious because the Snapshot URL works on OctoPi and directly in my browser (http://user:pass@XXX.XX.XXX.XXX/image/jpeg.cgi). The Stream URL is this: http://user:pass@XXX.XX.XXX.XXX/video/mjpg.cgi (it does work directly on my browser and it also worked on Repetier-Server).
Some additional info:

Hey, did you ever find a solution? I have a similar problem. I have the suspicion that OctoPi only allows relative URLs/paths in the Stream URL input.
I configured my MJPG-Streamer to use a different port (8081 instead of 8080) and I can access the stream in the browser via http://my-ip:8081/?action=stream and also on the host via
http://127.0.0.1:8081/?action=stream but OctoPi will still not show the stream, when I enter this URL into the input.
