WebCam on Octoprint

Post by Sensei » Sat Jun 19, 2021 2:34 am

I could use some help on octoprint getting the webcam to work. I already went through the MG instruction guide, but get no video. What should the default "Stream URL" be set as? I tried blank, and http://m3printer08q32.local:8080 to no avail.

Perhaps: /webcam/?action=stream

That's for the latest version:

OctoPrint 1.6.1 Python 3.7.3 OctoPi 0.17.0

Installed directly from https://octoprint.org/download/

Thanks. I figured out the main problem. Both webcams I already owned were not compatible. Tried a cheapo logitech and it works fine.
