CCTV feed pushed to Chromecast - Suggestions

I have a DVR with a number of cameras. It’s both onvif and RTSP capable. I have home assistant and Google Assistant ( though not integrated).

I want to be able to pull up the video feed from the DVR / Camera and push it to the Chromecast.

Has anyone done anything similar? Any suggestions on how best to achieve this?


I found a script that takes video as input and converts to Chromecast streamable format using ffmpeg.

If I find it I will add here

Thanks for the reply, this looks promising. So question, can this feed be invoked through google assistant?


Yes, you can make this a switch in HA that GA can trigger.
No, don’t think you can call this directly from GA
