I want to create a view in Home Assistant that mimics the multi-camera view that you can get with Blue Iris, so that I can watch all of my cameras at the same time (without needing to use ffmpeg). I know when adding the amcrest cameras the still image displays (mjpeg) & refreshes every few seconds. If I’m not mistaken (I very well could be), when clicking on a single camera then you can see it’s live stream full screen.
I’d like to figure out a way to have all of my cameras (up to six) display their live streams on a single stream. I guess the best option really would be to create a custom html page and embed all the streams in there, save it locally, then add a link to that page in the side panel (as an iframe_panel). Is this the best way to go? I’m open to hearing other suggestions & examples setups would be really nice.
Also, I’d really like to find some way to get this project to work with my amcrest cameras to be able to cast them to my google chrome devices, but I don’t have an extra device to run blue iris on & in order to stream amcrest streams I would need to use ffmpeg I believe.
