Axis camera viewing with user&pwd

Jeremy Hazeltine 4 months ago in Media Tiles / Video Camera Feeds • updated 4 months ago 5

i hve had AT working with axis cameras for a while. The problem is the axis companion app does not allow for anonymous viewing. How can i add the user and pwd to my media tile url?

I don't understand your question, Jeremy.


You said you have had ActionTile working with your Axis cameras for a while. Now they don't work? What has changed?

it works when the camera is using anonymous viewing. I want AT to log into the cam with user & pwd

You can only supply a user and password if the camera feed has ?user=userid&password=pwd (or similar) parameters allowed. You can use the basic html authentication foramt "user:password@address" only on very limited browser options (not Chrome, not Fully, perhaps Firefox, etc.).


Many cameras (perhaps most) do not accept user and password parameters. In this case, you can possibly route through a tinyCam Monitor Pro server (App for Android), which allows these paramters.

i spoke with Axis, and they said to format the url like the example. this does work in chrome, firefox,, but not in AT(also open in chrome, & firefox).
