Suggestion: Video Integration

In some previous (legacy) platforms we had the ability to embedded video (RTSP, HTML) typically though the old OLE/ActiveX platform.

We have used the Remote Image option to update snapshots on a specific interval or action, but a live video option would certainly be a great addition for some applications. With the new HTML5 Virtual Client now part of 2019, maybe progress will be made to implement a HTML5 Video element that can use the codecs available on the machine.

 

Just a simple request or suggestion, for now we launch a dedicated VMS viewer.

You can open hyperlinks to web pages in ViewX, so if the video is on a page already it should work.

Re: Suggestion: Video Integration

Correct, you can force the default browser to open. We do this often to load external reporting and video connections

I am hoping more along the lines of embedding actual video in the mimic.
