    Maybe the developer added support himself, most likely a feature of the installer.

    Indeed, seems like the installer will copy the needed file(s) to the skin directory.

    Code (Text):
    1.             <FileItem InstallType="CopyFile" SystemFile="false" Modified="false">
    2.               <Param1 />
    3.               <UpdateOption>AlwaysOverwrite</UpdateOption>
    4.               <LocalFileName>\\KAHUNA2\Projects\iSpy\iSpyMP\iSpyPlugin\Skin\StreamedMP\ispy_cameras.xml</LocalFileName>
    5.               <ZipFileName>Installer{CopyFile}\{c964a595-dd79-4bcc-b573-92ce63229a51}-ispy_cameras.xml</ZipFileName>
    6.               <DestinationFilename>%Skin%\StreamedMP\ispy_cameras.xml</DestinationFilename>
    7.             </FileItem>]/code]

    Rewriting this plugin at the moment as their latest sources (from 2012) are not used in the installer we have in the MPEI overview at least (missing skin files), also gonna add a new feature where if you select a camera it loads the image right away so you don't need to click on it every time.
    Maybe a grid view but haven't figured that one out yet, no .xmp2 in their repo so will have recreate that one.

    Seem they dropped support for this plugin altogether which is a bit sad because iSpy makes very decent CCTV software.

    // Update 1

    Attached updated plugin which was build against Mediaportal 1.13 (.NET 4), also fixed a few annoying bugs and added error handling so that it doesn't crash Mediaportal when something unexpected happens.
    Also added a few improvements like loading video on selection and if you have restore last plugin on Mediaportal load enabled it will use the first default server (otherwise would be empty skin)
    StreamedMP skin is updated with proper alignments and easy up/down when you are in the bottom selection (record / off / on etc..).


    // Update 2

    Added basic 2x2 grid support (new button in server overview) using JPEG not Motion JPEG as with multiple streams that consumed too much memory and was rather buggy, uses hardcoded 1280x720 stream resolution but they will scale down just fine.

    Place skin files:

    C:\ProgramData\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal\skin\StreamedMP

    Place .DLL file:

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal\plugins\Windows

    Hey Rick, do you think you might be updating the iSpy plugin for madVR? I'll throw you a log if it helps :)

    Hi Ken,

    With JPEG it should already work (2x2 grid view) but with MJPEG there might be some incompatibility as even with EVR could be a bit buggy :) , if you have the logs and error description will take a look.

    Hey, thanks Rick :) I'll see if I can get it going in JPEG. If not I'll send you a log. I've just setup a Kinect on the TV Server to watch the garden for wildlife. I'm waiting an IR light so we can hopefully catch the deer that pass by :)

    Here we are. How would I change to JPEG? As the logs show, when I select the camera it is crashing MP with an error about MJPEG. Here's a log using EVR (but the latest madVR builds)
