Media limitations

i cant get the media option to work. ive tried urls to cameras, gifs and youtube videos. what are the limits of this option

Thanks for posting! The following article may be helpful to you:

Media tiles include support for the following:

  • MJPG, GIF, or streaming images
  • JPG, PNG, and other static images
  • Support for periodic refresh
  • Adjustable tile size

Basically anything that works in a browser’s <img> tag.

The article also has tips on how to get some cameras connected including some workarounds for unsupported stream types. The beta also has experimental support for Nest Cams.

Edit: :tada: Nest Cam and Nest Hello video doorbell experimental support is now available! :tada:
