The base topo image is in jpeg format, I bet this causes the requirement. I don’t know if there is a workaround.
I just followed the builtin bom camera platform, so I don’t profess to be an expert on this. As far as I can tell, it uses the same logic as bom camera platform.
I tested it with picture-entity card. I cannot zoom with it on my phone anyway. I’m not sure how that would work, the platform just supplies a gif as a binary python object.
- type: picture-entity
After more testing on my end, it seems that the radar only updates if the page is refreshed. Sometimes there is an error in the log during the update process too. I’m not sure how to get around this.
If anyone knows how to periodically update the image in the camera platform without a refresh, I would be interested to learn. I should test the bom platform to see if the same behavior occurs.
