Hikvision stream doesn't show up on lovelace card

So I’ve gotten one of my hikvision camera’s up and running with the stream in the config like this:


If I create a picture card with this:
entity: camera.have
type: picture-entity
show_name: false
show_state: false

I get a picture shown every 10-20 secs.
If I add camera_view: live it doesn’t work

entity: camera.have
type: picture-entity
show_name: false
show_state: false
camera_view: live

This just shows an empty box.

If I enter the stream URL in VLC, it shows the picture as it should.

did you ever find the solution for your hikvision cameras?
mine refuses to play a live video stream as well. i can only get a thumbnail updated every 10 seconds or so

They are performing better, but I’m not completely statisfied with it.
My config:

  - platform: generic
    name: Front
    stream_source: !secret frontstream
    still_image_url: !secret frontstill
frontstream: "rtsp://user:[email protected]:554"
frontstill: "http://user:[email protected]/ISAPI/Streaming/channels/101/picture"

The URL’s are the correct ones, but I guess on the big overview they are not live, only when you click them.
They will update, but it’s not impressive.

i mod your code for my own config but it still doesnt work. did you install something extra on the machine running HA for it to handle h264 stream from the Hik camera or Hik NVR?

my code:

  - platform: generic
    name: living_door
    stream_source: rtsp://user:[email protected]:554
    still_image_url: http://user:[email protected]/ISAPI/Streaming/channels/101/picture
    username: admin
    password: my_pass
    verify_ssl: false
    authentication: basic

i know my RTSP stream is good because VLC has no issues stream it with “rtsp://admin:[email protected]:554”

No, just a rpi running hassio, nothing fancy afair
