I'm getting the previous error your were getting:

Code:

The path is right because it grabs the first image and puts it in "/resources/media/tmp.jpg", I can see the timestamp from BlueIris, but after the first image it dies. Any ideas? I can't wait to get this up and going so I can have Vera (My Z-Wave controller) send the Front Door camera to all the xbmc's when there is motion at the front door.

By the way, I am running XBMC 12.2 Frodo on a Windows PC.

- Accept parameter for cameraID and cameraName. Use case: I call this from BlueIris, which results in XBMC pulling a stream from BlueIris based on the camID.
- The existing image refresh didn't work for me (Window 8, on Gotham). So I made each image pulled have a unique name
- Cleanup the contents of the temp directory after it's done
- urlretrieve didn't work on my pc for some reason. So I switched out to urlopen
- Corrected some paths for images etc.

I'm also trying to get BlueIris to initiate this plugin. How did you call ir from BlueIris. Also do you have your version zipped up so I can try it?

I downloaded what I thought was the latest version and it's called script.securitycam. I am stuck on the following error when trying to start it by going to Addo_Ons -> Programm -> Security Cam Overlay.

OK, I have managed to narrow the problem down to the urllib.urlretrieve call. I commented out the section:
Code:
while((time.time() - startTime) * 1000 <= duration):
    urllib.urlretrieve(url, __snapshot__)
    camPreview.update(__snapshot__)
    xbmc.sleep(interval)
and added:
Code:
camPreview.update(__snapshot__)
xbmc.sleep(15000)
For a test and got a single image to show up.

I am using Frodo 12.2, how should I be calling this part of the script?

OK, I was finally able to get it to work with the help of some of the other contributors. Here is a working version for Frodo 12.2 pulling in one camera.

Code:
# Import the modules
import xbmc, xbmcgui, time, urllib2, xbmcvfs, xbmcaddon, os, urlparse

# Set plugin variables
__addon__    = xbmcaddon.Addon()
__cwd__      = __addon__.getAddonInfo('path').decode("utf-8")
__resource__ = xbmc.translatePath( os.path.join( __cwd__, 'resources' ).encode("utf-8") ).decode("utf-8")
__icon__     = xbmc.translatePath( os.path.join( __cwd__, 'resources', 'media', 'icon.png' ).encode("utf-8") ).decode("utf-8")
__snapshot__ = xbmc.translatePath( os.path.join( __cwd__, 'resources', 'media', 'temp.jpg' ).encode("utf-8") ).decode("utf-8")

# Get settings
url      = __addon__.getSetting('url')
username = __addon__.getSetting('username')
password = __addon__.getSetting('password')
width    = int(float(__addon__.getSetting('width')))
height   = int(float(__addon__.getSetting('height')))
interval = int(float(__addon__.getSetting('interval')))
duration = int(float(__addon__.getSetting('duration')) * 1000)

# Inject username / password  into url
if (username is None):
    urlObject = urlparse(url)
    urlObject.username = username
    urlObject.password = password
    url = urlunparse(urlObject)

# Methods
def notify():
    xbmc.executebuiltin('Notification(%s, %s, %d, %s)'%('SecurityCam', time.strftime("%I:%M %p"), duration, __icon__))

# Classes
class CamPreviewDialog(xbmcgui.WindowDialog):
    def __init__(self):
        COORD_GRID_WIDTH = 1280
        COORD_GRID_HEIGHT = 720
        scaledWidth = int(float(COORD_GRID_WIDTH) / self.getWidth() * width)
        scaledHeight = int(float(COORD_GRID_HEIGHT) / self.getHeight() * height)
        self.image = xbmcgui.ControlImage(COORD_GRID_WIDTH - scaledWidth, COORD_GRID_HEIGHT - scaledHeight, scaledWidth, scaledHeight, "")
        self.addControl(self.image)
        self.image.setAnimations([('WindowOpen', 'effect=slide start=%d time=1000 tween=cubic easing=in'%(scaledWidth),), ('WindowClose', 'effect=slide end=%d time=1000 tween=cubic easing=in'%(scaledWidth),)])

    def update(self, image):
        self.image.setImage("")
        self.image.setImage(image)
    
def getFile(file_name,file_mode,base_url):

    #create the url and the request
    req = urllib2.Request(base_url)

    # Open the url
    try:
        f = urllib2.urlopen(req)

        # Open our local file for writing
        local_file = open(file_name, "wb" + file_mode)
        #Write to our local file
        local_file.write(f.read())
        local_file.close()
        f.close()
        del local_file
        del f

    #handle errors
    except urllib2.HTTPError, e:
        print "HTTP Error:",e.code , url
        f.close()
        del local_file
        del f
    except urllib2.URLError, e:
        print "URL Error:",e.reason , url
        f.close()
        del local_file
        del f

# Main execution
camPreview = CamPreviewDialog()

notify()

camPreview.show()
startTime = time.time()
while((time.time() - startTime) * 1000 <= duration):
    getFile(__snapshot__,"",url)
    camPreview.image.setImage("")
    camPreview.image.setImage(__snapshot__)

    camPreview.update(__snapshot__)
    xbmc.sleep(interval)

camPreview.close()
del camPreview
os.remove(__snapshot__)

Next step is to change it to allow BlueIris to send 2 different cameras (Front Door and Baby Monitor) and to send to all XBMC's in the house, not just one. Has anyone gotten the Fade to work on Frodo, I want the transparancy around 80-90.

OK, for those of you that would like to use this for BlueIris here is what I got working on Frodo 12.2:

default.py
Code:
# Import the modules
import xbmc, xbmcgui, time, urllib2, xbmcvfs, xbmcaddon, os, urlparse

# Grab (and set default) parameters

height   = int(float(__addon__.getSetting('height')))

# Inject username / password  into url

    urlObject.username = username
    urlObject.password = password
    url = urlunparse(urlObject)

# Methods

    camPreview.update(__snapshot__)
    xbmc.sleep(interval)

camPreview.close()
del camPreview
os.remove(__snapshot__)

URL to call and pass camera id and name:
Code:
http://XBMCIPAddress:Port/jsonrpc?request={"jsonrpc":"2.0","id":1,"method":"Addons.ExecuteAddon","params":{"addonid":"script.securitycam","params":{"CamID":"BlueIris_Cam_Short-Name","CamName":"Camera_Name"}}}

This will still use the URL in the addon settings. For this example I am using blueiris so it would be "http://BlueIrisIPAddress:Port/image/" *Dont forget the "/" at the end.

Ok, this works great on my Windows PC and my MacBook Pro, but won't work on my AppleTV at all and on the Raspberry Pi it gets the first image and stops there. Any ideas?

Update: was able to fix the Raspberry Pi XBMC by using edrikk's code for creating new image file names and deleting them afterwards. Downside is this causes the images to blink when there is a live video behind it.

Cheers mate.

The Error Type: <type 'exceptions.EOFError'> makes me think that the code was unable to retrieve the image from the provided URL for some reason.

I just noticed the line that I haven`t posted. It goes just in front of the log I posted:

Code:
19:00:41 T:5992   ERROR: Control has invalid animation type (no condition or no type)

I tried every combination:

https://10.1.1.50:90/image.jpg
https://10.1.1.50:90/image.jpg
http://10.1.1.50/image.jpg
http://10.1.1.50:90/image.jpg

I do get an image if I just type in a browser but dont get the script to run Confused

Anyone any ideas?!

Cheers.

Ok, I found the mistake.

DCS 5020L:

Under Maintenance>Admin>DISABLE Snapshot URL Authentication.

What about audio stream?!

No audio, this just takes snapshot images from your camera and makes it look like a video by updating about 2 images a second.

I know. I thought there would be a way to stream the audio as well.

Also is there a way to start that script from Eventghost?

Cheers.

If Eventghost can make URL calls then use this:
Code:
http://XBMCIPAddress:Port/jsonrpc?request={"jsonrpc":"2.0","id":1,"method":"Addons.ExecuteAddon","params":{"addonid":"script.securitycam","params":{"CamID":"BlueIris_Cam_Short-Name","CamName":"Camera_Name"}}}

if not then install wget on your machine and create a batch file with the above command and have Eventghost call the batch file.

Sorry but I didn't get what you mean.

Here is the latest version of my script.

I added an option for whether you want the image to auto-close after a specified duration or just stay open.

Another new version (v0.0.3) here.

Found out the method I was trying to use for username/password authentication didn't work. Found another method but I don't have anything set up to test it easily, if someone could let me know if username/password authentication is working for them it would be much appreciated.
