Distorted Camera Feed in iOS Notification

Is anyone else seeing a distorted camera feed in iOS notifications? It’s like the feed is getting squeezed to a 1:1 format instead of it’s native resolution. Is that a bug, a feature, or a problem with my setup? Currently streaming at 640x360 (I tried 320x240 but my camera will only pull in a 640x360 feed at the minimum it seems).

My camera setup:

My config:

I have this as well with Chromium on Android - the one thing in common is that we both have mjpeg cameras.

Hmm, I had thought it was the tablet I was using, but mjpeg looks like the source now.

The distortion is referenced in this post below as well.

Github Issue:

Github Issue for Chromium, Chrome, Home Assistant App on Android, and Chromium on Xubuntu:

I’ve found a fix for this one:

By removing


from configuration.yaml

While keeping cameras with the camera_view: live in ui-lovelace.yaml .

Hope it’s applicable to your situation too :slight_smile:

I’ve updated the githubs.
