Yes, that would clean the clutter.

I'm sure you are right and everything could be done with roUrlTransfer, but for me it was easier to use roStreamSocket. I'm not sure how would m-jpeg or rtsp be implemented with roUrlTransfer, but I know how to do it with roStreamSocket. How do you continuously read packets into a roByteArray from the socket using roUrlTransfer?

Oh, that! Running an "infinite" download for mjpeg or rtsp. I got nothing on that with roUrlXfer.

But: I disabled any authentication on the Dlink camera and even the simplest /image.jpg still does not work - which to me points at the difficulties of implementing right http protocol when doing it from scratch.

PS. wait - "no authentication" is supported, right?! what authentications are supported currently?
You said you don't have "digest" yet, so your must be "basic" but does not work with Dlink.
OTOH, i used CURL from command line (--basic, --digest, --anyauth) to test Dlink and it works fine with basic and no-auth, does not work with digest.

Majority of cameras with mjpeg stream work (with or without basic authentication) right now. D-Link cameras seem like are sending a realm challenge even without authentication and that's not supported just yet. I found a d-link camera online with open access and looked the wireshark capture shows exactly that. 
At this point cameras that I know that work fine (tested or reported as working from the users) are most models from Axis, Panasonic, TrendNet, Samsung, Foscam, Airlink101, Android Webcam...   D-Link was reported to me as not working before but I didn't have access to one until today.

No, that's not it! Smiley LOL
I just figured it out on my end - apparently it's really, really, REALLY important (WTF?) to type the URL end with a "?" - and i was not doing that because why would you do an empty query when there are no params^. And it was not working. But by accident i read the help text of the web interface and it's stressing to append "?" and prepend "/" - so i tried that and now it works - at least the "/image.jpg?". With and without authentication! And so i ran here to take back my words but too late.

Here is a radical proposal - do not rely what people type will start with "/" and end with "?" - just check if that's the case and "fix" it otherwise:

if left(path, 1) <> "/" then path = "/" + path
if path.instr("?") < 0 then path = path + "?"


(^) in retrospect, now i can divine you are slapping a cache-buster param behind

I guess not all D-Link cameras have problems, but for example this one has: http://82.209.221.91:8080/2.mjpg?997267910[/urlSmiley Tongue25ax9gp] which supposedly is a D-Link.  The check for...Smiley Very Happy

It doesn't sound like a D-link:
< Server: Boa/0.94.14rc21
< WWW-Authenticate: Basic realm="streaming_server"
Could be Vivotek, Zavio, TP-Link (somewhat random results from a search).

You are somewhere on the West Coast, right? I'm in Salem Oregon.

Re: Submitted a channel update, wrong channel was published.

Does IP Camera Basic or Pro have audio, meaning that if the IP camera has audio feed that it will show the video and play the audio on the Roku?

Thanks for your work on this.
