How to add a camera to hassio?

I have a hacked Xiaomi xiaofeng camera, with rstp and ftpd servers open. I can see the streaming in VLC, so it is working. But I am not sure how must I do to integrate it in hassio. Is better to configure a Xiaomi camera platform? a ffmpg platform? add a picture-entity card? I am confused…

With this code, adding a picture entity card, when I click on the card, I can see the live camera stream. THANKS. Now I Will take a look on how get still images, (better if I can choose when), where to save it (camera SD card is perfect) etc. Just a question… video is recording somewhere? Because the camera is recording on plugged SD card, and I don’t want home assistant recording too…

No ha is not recording.
