HTML video feed login using ActionTiles Fire App

Brett 5 years ago in Browsers Tablets Phones / Amazon Fire updated 5 years ago 2

Just downloaded the new ActionTile app for the Fire tablet and noticed there is no way to view camera feeds because you can't log in to the feed.  I know this was an issue with Chrome and trying to embed user/password and was wondering if it is the same with the new app and Fire OS.

Hi Brett,

The ActionTiles App is powered by the "Android Webview" service (on Android, and WebOS - which is build on Android), which is also built on Chromium ... the engine that powers Chrome.

All of them hard-block "//user:password@address" embedding.

You can try a non-Chromium browser like Firefox, or logging in manually first, or setting no password, or transcoding using tinyCam which outputs a URL that can use "?user=loginid&pwd=password". 



I was afraid of that.  My solution was to set a link url tile to login and that carries over to the panel.
