Is there a straightforward way to load a single image from a web server and display on it XBMC?

The reason I ask is because I have a security camera outside my house which can be viewed as still JPEG from a web server. It would be very useful to be able to check the camera on my TV within XBMC but I am unsure how this could be achieved.


if you can not get that to work then you will need to write a python plugin or python script for it.

Good luck!

Tried creating a stream file but the motion jpeg image won't display in XBMC (although the progress bar looks like it is about to it stops at 100%).

It image will load in VLC and Firefox on my PC so I am guessing I need the right codec?
