Viewcam Beta 1
here is a first litter for a plugin which allows a webcam on the screen is display. Views from the Internet or IP Webcams in its own network in order to capitalize.
I use e.g. Foscam a clone is (definitely not be an advertisement):
The corresponding camera's Pearl as well as most other IP cameras.
For testing, I have configured a webcam from the Nuremberg airport.
Please read the limitations (see below) before it gets going.

LEST THE LIMITATIONS AND PLEASE UNDERSTAND YOU.
TESTED WITH FW 10826th
Octagon depends on the network (LAN or WLAN)

(Copy plugin directory on USB Plug; the Octagon).

With exit is disabled.
All settings are in the viewcam.cfg. There may also
URL of the webcam can be entered.
The plugin should work with any webcam, where you with
a unique URL / IP, a current image in JPG format
If you can provide when Webcam a format, it makes sense

(Assuming 192.168.2.180 is the IP of the camera)
- The Webcam configured when delivered by the Nuremberg
Airport sends partially defective images (ie colorful stripes).
This has nothing to do with the plugin.
- The download and decompressing the data, and JPG
Presentation is done with the little CPU of the receiver.
This means certain restrictions (a receiver is no PC).
- The Viewcam plugin tries to deal economically with CPU and
Activities (threads) to download and display low
Priority to execute. It can not yet exclude
be that with active representation negative influences in
parallel images can occur.
- The OSD of the receiver, the pixels are somewhat distorted, as if
it drags on a 16:9 screen, a 4:3 image to full width.
This is realized in the underlying SW Sun In a
later version, one could try to convert the images suitable.
