accessing network video camera / motion JPEG-stream

Hi all,

for a project i am working on i have to use the Panasonic BL-C1 network camera. Question is: how to get it into jitter?

It has a comparable interface to http://24.148.122.144:5001/

I am able to grab single frames from this with jit.qt.movie but it has a delay which delays my entire patch, fortunately the cameras will work on a local network, but still not optimal.

I am not able to grab the Motion JPEG-stream within quicktime / jitter, but in my browser it works. So another possibility was to load the streaming url into a jweb object, which shows it and even auto-refreshes, but i don’t know how to get those images into jitter.

So, any ideas on how to capture motion JPEG-streams or any other ideas about this?

Tbanks a lot!

if going the jweb way a simple hack would be to use jit.desktop
vade experimented with camera streams, i don’t remember the model or thread.

i dont think you can pull the stream directly, seems to be embedded in the
browser, here is a direct link to the stream page, will not play using
jit.qt.movie obvously.

http://24.148.122.144:5001/ImageViewer?Direction=&Resolution=320×240&Quality=Standard&Size=STD&PresetOperation=Move&Data=0&Frame2=PanTilt&Type=&Language=0&RPeriod=65535&Sound=Enable&Mode=JPEG&SendMethod=1&View=Normal

mybe the javascript code there can help. nice camera.
