Cameras


Fluidd (and FluiddPI) has built in support for web cameras.

To configure FluiddPI, edit the file found here /boot/fluiddpi.txt. Instructions are contained within.

You can add up to three cameras to display on your dashboard.

Currently supported types are;

  • MJPEG Stream This is the traditional mjpegstream service. The service pushes images to fluidd at the configured resolution and FPS you have setup. This requires a lot of bandwidth, and can cause issues with unstable network connections.

  • MJPEG Adaptive This will PULL images from the mjpegstream service, using the snapshot URL. You can set a target FPS, and your browser will try to keep up with the intended target. This can be a more reliable approach for some.

  • IP Camera This is an experimental option. Effectively, it swaps out the <img> tag for a <video> tag. You should only use this if you can provide a URL that supports native HTML5 video tags.

Head on over to the UI Settings page to define your cameras.
