If you have a Foscam IP camera, it is possible to add the live stream as a channel on your receiver. First you need the IP address, username and password from the camera.

e.g., username=user, password=password

Then you need to know the URL buildup. Every type of camera has his own / different way of URL build. To get a successful image, you need to have the right command.
Here you can find the necessary information.

For a Foscam F9903W you'll get the following line:

This line can then entered with a settings editor into your bouquet.

If you have camera's on the Synology Diskstation, you can easily add the streams to your receiver.

Copy the RTSP path: e.q.: rtsp://syno:224466aabbccdd1122334455aaaabbbb@

Add this URL in an user bouquet that can be found at /etc/enigma2/
The line should be:

#SERVICE 4097:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:rtsp%3a//syno%3a224466aabbccdd1122334455aaaabbbb@ House

Note: The camera gives only (default) a stream for one hour. To alter the time to always:

  1. Select the camera and edit the configuration
  2. Go to the 3rd item: Livesettings and select the advanced tab
  3. Enter at the streamsharepath a duration "Always"

Note: Whenever your Synology Diskstation reboots, the rtsp stream changes.
