Impossible to stream a ffmpeg camera

Hi, I searched in other topics but didn’t found my issue.
I correctly stream a camera through VLC but cannot do in a lovelace card
I’m using FFPMEG platform (enabled in config) but all I can see is a still image (with IDLE written on it) which refresh only if I refresh the page.
If I click on it there’s the following error “No video for supported format and MIME type found”



I tried even without extra_arguments but with no success
Anyone knows how to solve?

Hi there,

Did you ever find a solution to this? I am having the same issue now!

I had the same issue, but managed to work around it by streaming it through MotionEye:

  - platform: mjpeg
    name: "doorcam"

it also allows adjusting the frame rate, quality and resizing :wink:

Same issue here with Reolink camera’s.

This was working before but after a fresh install of home assistant in a new docker container (start from scratch) it did not work in the new setup.

Same here, shiny new RLC-811A w/ h265 stream, FF browser.

stream does not support h.265 in ff

That explains it. Neat to see it WILL work on my phone though!

Mine is working with the following settings in configuration.yaml:

  - platform: ffmpeg
    name: name_of_your_camera
    input: 'rtsp://admin:password@ip_address_of_your_camera:554/live/ch00_1'

You can test this upfront with VLC media player with the same settings
