Hey @poorskeleton, if you’re on a Hub S, the stream URL should http://xxxx-xx-canvas-hub.local:8081/?ac... where xxxx-xx is the serial number of the Hub. If you don’t have xxxx-xx, then replace xxxx-xx-canvas-hub''' with the IP address.

The snapshot URL is '''http://xxxx-xx-canvas-hub.local:8081/?ac...

Hope that helps!

Thanks Alina - That's what I had in there but it doesn't appear to be working. Perhaps my new but cheap webcam just isn't compatible.


No problem! We usually go by this list to check out compatible webcams if that helps:

You need to consult the camera’s documentation to find the stream address. Try opening a browser to the cam’s IP address. It might have a sample page giving this information.

Thanks Edward - I've attached the webcam directly to the hub so it's the hub based URL I'm looking for. I have one in there but it doesn't work. I think Alina has given me the info I required.
