I've just setup a new OctoPi Installation and it is running well so far.
Now I tried to integrate an existing Webcam (TP-Link NC250).
The Webcam provides HTTP access for Stream and Snapshot,
however it requires authentication.
The above links (like on PC) do not work in OctoPi and I have no clue why.
I assume OctoPi is not able to submit the included authentication.
However I don't know, because there is no information available, why the access is
@Ewald_Ikemann: Does not work either
as your link misses the authentication for the webcam, but even including
the credentials this syntax does not work
@OutsourcedGuru: I'm using Chrome to access OctoPi, but the browser is not the problem. As I wrote I can access the webcam by browser without a problem.
Also the Raspi can access the webcam (proofed by wget calls for stream and snapshot). It's only OctoPi, who cannot access the webcam for whatever reason.
I have no clue.
The reason why I would ask is that IE, for example, can directly pull either a snapshot or a stream from the camera but it can't do it inline using an <img /> tag in the way that OctoPrint is implemented. But Chrome should be able to do so.
Assuming that you're not accessing your http://octopi.local without SSL, I suppose it would be good to visit the Settings -> Timelapse page and see what's been entered there. Or, you could visit your home page, open up the Developer's Console and look for any errors. Often, it might throw a 404 error if your browser can't pull a certain URL like this. In some cases, there's a Transport tab that would tell you a lot but it might be necessary to Reload while you're viewing it.
