Release Security CAM Overlay add-on
Ok, so I have v17 kodi and add-on is working... well here goes the question.

1. Is there a way to specify position of the window? I need to move it to the upper right corner of the screen.
2. Is it normal that after activating plugin v17 stops react to any input? Playback is running, but I could not switch back to the movie: UI just not responding to any of my input no meter mouse, keyboard or IR or Android...

Thank you.

My cam (Amcrest Ultra HD) only allows Digest authentication, so I had to make some script modifications to use the requests python library. Here's my default.py file:

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

# Constants
ACTION_PREVIOUS_MENU = 10
ACTION_BACKSPACE = 110
ACTION_NAV_BACK = 92
ADD_ON_ID = 'script.Cam1'

# Set plugin variables
__addon__    = xbmcaddon.Addon()
__cwd__      = __addon__.getAddonInfo('path').decode("utf-8")
__icon__     = xbmc.translatePath(os.path.join(__cwd__, 'icon.png').encode("utf-8")).decode("utf-8")
__profile__  = xbmc.translatePath(__addon__.getAddonInfo('profile')).decode("utf-8")
__resource__ = xbmc.translatePath(os.path.join(__cwd__, 'resources').encode("utf-8")).decode("utf-8")
__snapshot_dir__ = xbmc.translatePath(os.path.join(__profile__, 'snapshots').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')))
autoClose = (__addon__.getSetting('autoClose') == 'true')
duration  = int(float(__addon__.getSetting('duration')) * 1000)

# Utils

def log(message,loglevel=xbmc.LOGNOTICE):
    xbmc.log((ADD_ON_ID + ": " + message).encode('UTF-8','replace'),level=loglevel)

# Classes
class CamPreviewDialog(xbmcgui.WindowDialog):
    def __init__(self):
        log('CamPreviewDialog Initialized \n', xbmc.LOGDEBUG)
        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, __icon__)
        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 start(self, autoClose, duration, interval, url, destination):

        snapshot = ''

        while(not autoClose or (time.time() - startTime) * 1000 <= duration):
            if xbmcvfs.exists(snapshot):
                os.remove(snapshot)

            snapshot = self.downloadSnapshot(url, destination)

            if snapshot != '':
                self.update(snapshot)

            xbmc.sleep(interval)
            if not self.isRunning:
                break
        self.close()

        from requests.auth import HTTPDigestAuth
        log('Retreiving Image \n', xbmc.LOGDEBUG)

            output.write(imgData)
            output.close()
            return filename
        except Exception, e:

            return ''

    def onAction(self, action):

        if action in (ACTION_PREVIOUS_MENU, ACTION_BACKSPACE, ACTION_NAV_BACK):

is there a way to get this to work with DVR camera systems that have 4 channels and port login/pass etc?

It wasn't a log, it was the paste of a python file, but the principle is the same.

However for code, the best practice is to fork the code on github and post a link to that. Distributing code via pastebin is just dumb and amateur.

Did you ever get this working?

Does anyone have this working on Kodi v18. Im not sure what changed since 17 and 18 but I have this connected to a BlueIris camera stream and it stops refreshing. From BlueIris it looks like it is trying to open a bunch of different streams and quickly maxes out the max users Sad 17 had no issues like this

This is exactly what I needed... Kodi 17 with my openhab server so firing it off with the doorbell and pausing Kodi.

Thankyou!

Dears,

This is a cool add-on for home automation, and I really would like to get it going with my doorbird doorbell.
Doorbird has an open api, this is why i bought it actually.

But some how I can not get it to work with this addon.

Below options are possible:
http://<device-ip>/bha-api/video.cgi  --> give a video feed (MJPEG)
http://<device-ip>/bha-api/image.cgi --> gives an image (JPG)

Both commands work if i try them in a webbrowser, but unfortunately not in the addon

This is an add on I have been making very good use of for years now and a reason why I won’t upgrade to 18 for now at least...will read any further reports with interest but will look to build a test machine on a spare computer at some point to see how things are looking

If you are interested in an updated version that supports multiple cam feeds, positioning of the overlay window(s) and that is compatible with kodi 18 you may want to look here.

Is there a similar addon that can also cause a pop-up window, but only with the broadcast of the video stream, and not from the jpg image?

Great find, thank you.
What you have to specify to get all four camera snapshots to pop up at the same time, while keeping the original Aspect Ratio (16:9), let's say at 480x270 snapshot on a 1920x1080 screen?
