Is anyone else getting live action delay of about 10 seconds with their camera or is it just Amcrest? No problem otherwise...
I am using mjpg stream - it is like a delay of 6-10 seconds.
i am using the Amcrest ddns service (wan), when I access the camera directly from a browser using the same ddns url, it is in real time.
I have a couple old Foscams (same manufacturer as Armcrest) and confirm that the behavior occurs ... except it also occurs in a plain browser tab (on Android Chrome Nexus 9 tablet).
I ran the same Panel in Fully on a slow Amazon Fire 7" tablet, and the response was much better; ... sorta. It was inconsistent.
Indeed. Just tried it on Macbook using Firefox, Safari and Chrome. Works faster in Firefox and Safari - no image present in Chrome.
I'm 99% certain that Chrome is blocking the image because it is not-SSL (i.e., it is an "http://" address on an "https://" page).
Of course ActionTiles uses SSL for security -- it is essential. But we cannot wrap SSL around embedded media if it doesn't already have it.
Supposedly there are settings in Chrome to allow so-call "mixed-content"; but I have had ... "mixed-success" with attempts to use such settings.
Truth is that the Cameras really need to start using SSL & https://. But that adds considerable complexity to them.
