    Unable to save camera URL?

    I'm trying to set up a simple manual camera to grab a snapshot from an external site, but the URL doesn't save. When I refresh the Setup page it always shows "http://" as the URL, and the log shows "Error with request: http://->Invalid URI: The hostname could not be parsed."

    Shouldn't this be possible, or am I misunderstanding something?

    Did you press the save button at the bottom of the page?

      Yes of course. Workflow:

      - enter camera name, press (+) button
      - enter URL, press Save button

      At this point everything looks OK, but if I go to the cameras page the camera appears but the content doesn't.

      When I go back to the Setup page the URL is not saved.


        Did you find a solution for this? I'm having the same issue

          To answer my own question. My workaround was:
          Add a camera from the web gui (setup)
          edit the hspi_HSTouch.ini with the follwing lines
          url_CAMNNAME=<YOUR URL>
          urlstream_CAMNAME=<YOUR RTSP>
