Livefeed video - Which component?

Hey guys. I have tried to get this video url into hass to show the weather in my area, but I can’t seem to find the right component to solve it. I don’t know what kind of codec the video is, but is it possible to show the url in a window somehow? Or use a camera component?

The link for the video is!/1001407

And the embedded HTML code would be: <iframe width="560" height="315" src="//" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="true"></iframe>

If anyone have any idea, it would be much appreciated :slight_smile:

i think you could use the following.

I had a glimpse at the link you provided in the browser devtools (<F12>). I, then, refreshed the page while in the network tab … and caught sight of a request to a .m3u8 playlist. This is certainly the hls stream url you want to decode with the ffmepg camera component.

I agree, the link works directly in VLC and is what I want to display, thanks :slight_smile: But how do i move forward with the ffmpeg? I can see from the documentation that i need ffmpeg installed, but can I just put the link into the config or do I need to render the file first? Since the panel iFrame component can display the feed without any more configuration, I was wondering if the ffmpeg could do the same. Does not seem to work though.

  - platform: ffmpeg
    name: fvn

is working :slight_smile:

I believe you :slight_smile: Seems like I have a problem with the ffmpeg installation on my pi.

I have followed every step, but something is wrong. I will troubleshoot some more, hopefully we can celebrate later :slight_smile:

Good news! I ran my config off a Pi Zero W for a couple of days for some testing. Turns out it doesn’t handle ffmpeg that well :blush: As soon as I booted up the Pi3, the feed was up. Thank you so much guys! :slight_smile:
