nest.com cam no connection

Post by truderinger » Sun Jun 14, 2020 6:37 am

Hello,
I use four cams via the nest.com cloud. I can directly access the camera through an internet browser. The link then looks like this:
https://video.nest.embedded/live/xxxxxx
Unfortunately I don't get a connection. Has anyone dealt with the Nestcam problem?

Thanks for an info.

best regards Herbert

Hi,

I've come a little closer to my goal. Since the official browser stream could not be played in e.g. VLC either, I found a website that gave the actual address of the stream. This is "https://www.ispyconnect.com/userguide-nest.aspx". With this link I can now play the stream directly in VLC.

So I copy the stream link and enter it under ZM under Source. Target TCP-24bitColor-480x394. Before that, however, under General FFmpeg and Monitor. Voila, I can see the camera in ZM. Now I'm still trying to include this for Kodi with a ZM client.

best regards

Hallo,

after long attempts with the registration problems from kodi 18.6 with the zm-addon, in Apache2 (zm / cgi-bin) I have now updated to Zoneminder 1.34 with API.2 out of desperation. Just changed the API in the addon to "2" and it works.

Zoneminder can be accessed directly via a browser, but no streams are displayed (Cams offline).
I think these are minor blemishes that need to be fixed.

best regards
