adding a webcam to website
can you add a webcam to myvr website
Hi @Dana-Pascucci - Great question!
A lot of web cam software, has an embeddable widget you can use to show your webcam. Then it's as easy as adding it to the HTML block, dragging in where you want it with the layout editor, and it should work great!
If you have any specifics about a particular type of webcam, like Next or similar, just let me know.
@tristan-brotherton was going to purchase a nest cam
I am not an expert on Nest cameras, but basically you will need a camera that can give you an embeddable HTML widget, or can for example broadcast to a service you can embed like YouTube live.
I would direct your question at Nest, or ask other camera manufacturers, if they have an embeddable widget you can put on your website. (MyVR will support any embeddable widget).
will call nest. ty pal
, if they have an embeddable widget you can put on your website
tried speaking with nest. didnt get far. this is my website 7northwater.com there is a website that has a nest cam on it. https://fishernantucket.com/.. on the upper right you will see main st cam. i want to replicate this on mine. do you think its possible
If they have done it, you can too.
With the public URL, you can also embed your camera’s live stream on a web page. If you stop sharing your camera publicly, the footage will no longer appear on the page.
Adding to the website is easy once you know the URL that hosts it (see my website) - you can just use HMTL with an iFrame:
Here is mine:
<div class="entry-content"> <p><strong></strong><br /> <iframe src="http://g1.ipcamlive.com/player/player.php?alias=59b06d035419c&autoplay=true" width="800px" height="450px" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen"></iframe> </p> </div>
If you're setting up your own cam, you'll have to find the web address for it to insert.
You could also contact the folks who manage the website you gave as an example for advice. They're likely to say the same thing that Jenny Oest suggested suggested because that's pretty much the set up for it however.
