Introduction
With the Axis Cameras plugin installed you can watch live video feeds from your Axis network cameras and video servers.

The video format displayed is either MPEG-4 or H.264 depending on the capabilities of the camera. Both MPEG-4 and H.264 requires less bandwidth than Motion JPEG (M-JPEG) and is supporting synchronized audio.

Credit
The AXIS Media Control developers have been a invaluable resource for knowledge regarding audio and video filter chains. Frankly, without them there would be no plugin.

Installation
The plugin can be installed by running the downloaded MediaPortal extension. Notification of new versions are handled by the MediaPortal Extension Installer.

The plugin has been verified with MediaPortal v1.10.0.

Since the plugin is showing video streams in MPEG-4 and/or H.264, it is required that decoders for those formats are installed. The plugin itself will not install these decoders, but chances are that you've already got the decoders installed since MediaPortal after all primary is used for showing video in various formats.

Supported Skins
  • Default
  • DefaultWide
  • Titan

Re: Axis Camera MPPlugin

It can possibly do that in future versions, but for v1.0 I plan to support live view from only one camera. Recording and snapshots are also possibilities for future releases.

    AW: Axis Camera MPPlugin

    does this Plugin only support Axis Cams or does it only grab a specific Stream from a predefined IP Adress? I am asking, because i am using an Y-Cam, it uses JPEG-Stream, *.av-Stream, *.sdp-Stream.

    I have currently no plans for supporting other than Axis products, but you never know. It all comes down to the amount of work it takes to integrate other products, because one thing I know is that it's pretty easy to use the Axis products.

    Regarding the video streams, I will be displaying either MPEG-4 or H.264. It requires less bandwidth than Motion-JPEG.

    Re: AW: Axis Camera MPPlugin

    That would be a good idea. If I decide to support other than Axis cameras, would you be willing to specify the Y-Cam URL request formats? You would also have to verify that a user of MediaPortal wouldn't have to specify the camera credentials each time a new video stream is requested.
