Connect to camera on network like you can with octoprint?

With octoprint, you can connect to a camera not connected to the raspberry pi (via USB) via its ip address. Under the webcam > stream URL settings page.

I use an old Android phone with the IP camera app to allow me to watch my prints in high quality.

I want to try astroprint which I know is based on octoprint, but does it have this feature?

Thank you

This is not supported at the moment but it’s on our dev roadmap

Thanks for letting me know :+1:

Is this still on the roadmap? Are there any 3rd party/workarounds to get an IP camera added?

No plugins at the moment and unfortunately other higher priority items keep getting in front of this.

This would be a great feature to add. Many people would like a close up and further away view of their build.

I’m using and old Samsung S4 with IPcam through octoprint and it works with astroprint.
There’s a few seconds delay when i hit the “take picture” button, it’s not straight as if i had a webcam, but i have a picture.
