Hi everyone, I’m new and I hope I have written in the right section … I discovered home assistant a few weeks ago, I am testing it in my raspberry directly with hassio, I understand the various integrations but I am stuck in integrating my ipcam. … I have 4 hikvision ipcam, I find them quietly with the onvif integration, but when I look at them from my lovelace I correctly see the preview image but I don’t load the stream … I tried everything from the various configurations found in the discussions etc., but I’m going crazy to no avail… is there anyone who can help me ??
I’ve got hacked Yi cameras
It was a pain for me but perhaps this might help you:
I put this in my configuration.yaml:
stream: ffmpeg: camera: - platform: ffmpeg name: Camera 1 input: -rtsp_transport tcp -i rtsp://192.168.x.xx/ch0_0.h264 - platform: ffmpeg name: Camera 2 input: -rtsp_transport tcp -i rtsp://192.168.x.xx/ch0_0.h264
Then I used picture entity cards in the front end and only filled in the required entity
cards: - aspect_ratio: 70% entity: camera.front_camera hold_action: action: more-info name: Front Bedroom type: picture-entity type: vertical-stack
Thanks, I tried but unfortunately I always have the same problem … I see the ipcam as an entity, I see the preview but the stream does not work …
Does your stream work if you try to play it in VLC for example?
Yes it works on VLC, in VLC I need to put username and password, maybe I need to modify the code that you suggest to me for insert it… can you help me?
Ok I found the correct rtsp address (rtsp://username:[email protected]:554/streaming/channels/101) but it does not work
Solved!!! it was a problem of authentication of my ip cams , after i put another user on the ipcams and configure it on Ha it start to work! thank you so much for your help!
Great! do you want to mark it as solved with the correct resolution that helped you out
YES! I add a new user in the interface of my HIKVISION IP cam, you can add the ip cam with the onvif integration but is important log in as a secondary user not admin, if you log as admin you can’t see the stream
