Import internet live stream camera



  • hi, 

    I want to try and composite several live cameras from this website for a video installation. I'm a bit of a newbie, and kind of making it up as I go!
    Here is one of the cameras
    [http://www.skylinewebcams.com/en/webcam/italia/liguria/genova/boccadasse-genova.html](http://www.skylinewebcams.com/en/webcam/italia/liguria/genova/boccadasse-genova.html)
    I've tried to pipe it through Syphon, but it has trouble with the browser especially when the video goes full screen. Ideally, I'd like to have several of the feeds in one scene.
    Any ideas?
    Thanks!

    This may be a good one for @michel he uses webcams and IP cameras a lot. :)

    Well that website shows the camera streams with a flash player. I never found out how to get the true camera stream URL out of the flash player. And then if you have found a way to do that you can try if it is working with [ipCam2Syphon](https://github.com/bakercp/IPCAM2SYPHON).
    Not all Streams are working with it. But on this website (http://en.ipcams.ch/) most of the cams are working with ipcam2syphon. In Firefox you have to right klick on the stream and klick show image. Then a new window will open with only the stream and you can copy the URL into the streams.xml file you find in the data folder of ipcam2syphon.
    Best Michel
