How to implement engine plugin for ip camera?

  • Hello!
    I have two ip cameras, one can capture in MJPEG format, other in H264. What classes should I reimplement for minimal support to use it with QCamera? I know how to write a plugin but I don't know what QCamera* related stuff I should implement.

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    For that you need to go deeper in QtMultimedia. Have a look at e.g. the qnx plugin. It shows more that you need to implement but you'll have a good overall idea at how it is done (plugin wise, not IP camera wise)

    Be aware that this stuff is currently not covered by any example/demo so you'll have to learn by reading the code and testing. But don't be afraid, it's not as complex as it may look at first sight
