Does the media tile generator support blob webcam streams?

I have tried searching online and in this forum and I have not seen anything regarding this. There are some earchcams and other public webcams that I thought would be interesting to be able to see from my panel

Hi Rob,

Media Tile Generator is a plug-in of limited functionality. It cannot process any camera streams. Media Tile Generator will be retired as it's features are replaces with native functionality.

Thanks for the response, I guess I just used the wrong term (I pulled that from other posts).  I am using the native Media tiles in the "My Media" section.  I have not been able to get any of these types of steams to work.  It could be that I am doing something wrong.  An example is the stream below (I have come across a lot of other similarly formatted streams).  This is a stream from an earthcam in san antonio.  I tried using this as is, I also tried removing the "blob:" at the beginning.  I knew that would not work, but I tried it anyway.  I have thought about writing my own service to handle these types of streams and using the iframe tile, but thought I would ask first in case it is supported and I am doing something wrong or if there are plans for it to be supported in the future.




ActionTiles Media Tiles are only compatible with MJPEG Media streams.

However, this video should work as IFrame Tiles. Try to create an IFrame Tiles using https://api.wetmet.net/widgets/stream/frame.php?uid=cdfe758753cb6f8811056a82ef176ceb as the source.
