Plugin for Octoprint no video option available


I just downloaded the plugin for octoprint and can connect to it perfectly. However in the monitor option in the dashboard, when I connect to the printer, I can only look at still images from the webcam (c270 Logitech). I am unsure if the plugin has the option for video but I cannot find an option to enable video at all. Please let me know if i am missing something and thank you for your time.

Hi @Ryan1,

At the moment the plugin doesn’t mess with OctoPrint’s camera and simply uses the native camera support which unfortunately doesn’t have webrtc support ( something we need to delivery video across networks ).

We will fix this at some point though, given the popularity that the plugin is gaining

So, there is still no streaming option for those of us using the octoprint plug in? Bummer if so.
