Zoneminder Source Settings for Chromecast

Post by databoy2k » Fri Aug 31, 2018 9:15 pm

I'm looking for some help making a Zoneminder stream match the Chromecast requirements (https://developers.google.com/cast/docs/media). I don't know what options to use and would appreciate some help.

I've got a LaView Doorbell Camera (a rebrand of the Hikvision one); PDB1520F1. It's running into Zoneminder (Monitor 6). I'm trying to cast the Zoneminder stream to a Chromecast through Home Assistant using the following URL: http://[ZM-IP]/zm/cgi-bin/nph-zms?mode=jpeg&monitor=6&scale=100&maxfps=5.

The camera natively streams at 1080p (1920x1080). Its codec is H264 - MPEG-4 AVC (part 10) according to VLC. Obviously I can access other resolutions by manipulating the capture width and height in ZM. Nothing that I've done, though, makes it possible for the Chromecast to access the stream.

There's a decent explanation of options to use with BlueIris here: https://community.home-assistant.io/t/g ... tant/63671. Any help translating those options or the Chromecast ones above into Zoneminder would be hugely appreciated.
