ffmpeg platform allows you to use any video feed as a camera in Home Assistant via FFmpeg. This video source must support multiple simultaneous reads, because for every concurrent Home Assistant user, a connection will be made to the source every 10 seconds. Normally this should not be a problem.
To enable your FFmpeg feed in your installation, add the following to your
# Example configuration.yaml entry camera: - platform: ffmpeg input: FFMPEG_SUPPORTED_INPUT
- input (Required): An FFmpeg-compatible input file, stream, or feed.
- name (Optional): Override the name of your camera.
extra_arguments (Optional): Extra options to pass to
ffmpeg, e.g., image quality or video filter options.
You can control the image quality with
-q:v 2-32 or with lossless option
