Camera widget not working with URL item

Hi Igor

I thought it was time to move away from Rotini…

however struggling a bit.

Camera Widget… i can select bindings?
how do a url binding look like?

on the old rotini i did this:

Frame label="Garage {widget:camera,size:1x1}" {
  Image url="http://user:pass@10.0.0.5:65003/Streaming/channels/101/picture" refresh=1000
}

I created a item:

String Link_Frontdoor_Camera "http://user:pass@10.0.0.5:65001/Streaming/channels/101/picture"

But when i add this i get nothing? i only want “refreshed images” not a video stream.

not working, what am i doing wrong?

@ChamDK1 I think when creating String items in that format, it will not make URL part a value, it will just use it as an item label. I’m not aware of a way to assign static value to an item in OpenHAB within .items file (unless something changed recently).

I usually assign all static values in System started rule, something like that:

rule "Startup"
  when
    System started
  then
    Link_Frontdoor_Camera.postUpdate("http://user:pass@10.0.0.5:65001/Streaming/channels/101/picture")
end

Btw, thank you for taking the time to switch away from Rotini!

I’ll test and get back. :slight_smile:

Would really like some pricing also, since i need at least 5 sub-pages to separate things

@ChamDK1 did this solution work?

Hey have not tested much more, but could not get it to work :frowning:
