What camera are you using? What is in your configuration.yaml for the camera?

Try removing the show_info and tap_action.

ok removing tap_action did the trick
platform was synology cameras btw

thnx!

This thread helped me accomplish what I wanted, which was just to display the image from a camera. Just wanted to let you know that you didn’t need the ‘camera_image’ in there either. It automatically uses the image from the camera if the entity is a camera entity.

type: picture-entity
title: Voordeur
entity: camera.camera_voordeur

I use only these three lines, I get a preview of the camera.
But when i click it, it normally should stream. Like 2-3 frames a second.

The only thing I get is a empty white screen.
Does anyone have an idea?

Hi, I have similar problem with one of synology cameras. One camera works just fine, but another show just still picture and when I open it, just picture of broken link shows. When page is refreshed, fresh still image is pulled. Am I doing somethong wrong here? Thanks in advance.

Ok, so I just solved it by manually updating Synology Surveillance Station to version 8.2.3.5829 as stated here.
