Version 5.15 (12/15/2016)

Some of you are a bit annoying by the floating icon to start the video streaming from any screen: yes, this is really convenient, but sometimes you wanna hide the icon. So you have to reactivate it from the Printoid settings. For those who simply want to always hide the icon, but keep the comfort of a quick streaming access, I’ve integrated a very simple widget that will only show an image from you camera.

To ensure that you will not have an over-consumption of your data fair-use, this is not a real video but rather a snapshot of your camera stream: so you have to properly configure the snapshot URL suffix in the Printoid settings (in the case of you had changed it in OctoPrint, the default value is /webcam/?action=snapshot).

Simply click on the widget to get a refreshed image ๐Ÿ˜‰

You can resize the widget as you want, see the screenshots bellow.

If ever you like this kind of widget, please keep me informed by e-mail or from the Contact tab of the website. Here a quick list of my thought:

  • Some widget settings, for example to select a printer profile for the stream, so you’ll be able to create multiple widgets and show more than one stream ;
  • Others widgets, like one to control the axis for example.

Also, all the streaming methods now support the basic auth.
