Homekit camera - no video only still frame


I am using Docker and Homebridge on my Synology and Camera-ffmpeg to get my cameras working on Homekit (iPad)
I do get a still frame every 6 seconds, but no live video when I Click on it.
I tested the rtsp on VLC and in VLC i do see the live video.

In the log I see at the end:

Applying option f (force format) with argument rawvideo.
Successfully parsed a group of options.
Opening an output file: .
[file @ 0x7fcb1bc97d40] Setting default whitelist ‘file,crypto’
: No such file or directory

my config looks like:
“platform”: “Camera-ffmpeg”,
“cameras”: [
“name”: “Voordeur”,
“videoConfig”: {
“source”: “-re -i rtsp://user:pass@”,
“maxStreams”: 2,
“maxWidth”: 1280,
“maxHeight”: 720,
“maxFPS”: 30,
“additionalCommandline”: " -loglevel verbose ",
“debug”: true

Dockers startup shell: apk add --no-cache ffmpeg ffmpeg-libs

On Github, I saw a similar question but did not find an answer

can you please help?


You might get an answer here, but this is the npm forum, and your problem does not like like the problem is with npm? You might want to ask in a different forum.
