I need help to add video from hikvision ip camera to dashboard.
I can see video (MJPEG) with web browser on this link: http://user:firstname.lastname@example.org/Streaming/channels/1/preview
So I think I need to create HTTP Image data source. Then I create data point and URL field with a link I wrote.
In dashboard designer I create ma-point-value with this datapoint but it doesn't work.
I think I need to write some code in "Webcam live feed code"? :) Do you have any example about this?
@dovydasz you can try to restream your video from camera with ffmpeg/ffserver utility as webm, for example. And after that add it to dashboard with simple video tag.

@dovydasz If you are just trying to put a live view of the camera onto your dashboard you can probably use a simple HTML5
<video>tag as suggested by Maxim. It will depend on the camera and the codec it uses, I suggest you consult your camera's documentation.
The HTTP image data source can save a frame from your video every x seconds provided it provides its output as an image via HTTP. This is not really well suited to video though.
