If you can't view the video stream in plain Chrome, it definitely won't work in ActionTiles.


Someday we may be able to offer format conversion or plug-in support, but that's a long ways off I think.


In the meantime, there is quite a range of cameras that stream simple and compatible MJPEG (or at least JPG still images which can be refreshed automatically by the Media Tile as frequently as every 5 seconds).

  • What URLs have you tried?
  • What is the exact camera model?

Video Support is limited, but research will help us improve in the long term.

The above is the URL to the video stream of my front door camera. It is a Zmodo Model ZH-IXY1D. I use Chrome on my Android Nexus 9 tablet. I get error that says that I need a plug-in.

I would love the exact error message please... Screen shot perhaps?

Sorry, I was wrong about the plug-in error. After holding down the Media Tile for the camera, I select the Chrome option which crashes my Chrome 56.

  • What does the URL do in a browser tab all by itself? (Not running ActionTiles).
  • Press F12 and refresh. The various outputs may reveal if a plug-in is used,... Etc.
  • Do you have to login to the Camera?

I get the above screen when I try to view the URL with Chrome. And yes, the first time I needed to log in to MeShare account.
