Wyze Cam Help

Cupertino, September 9, 2019


I bought a cheap Wyze Cam in hopes of adding it as an IP camera to Homekit via Homebridge (running on my Mac).

& # X200B;

I downloaded FFMPEG and I tried three different platforms (camera-ffmpeg, camera-ip and camera-ffmpeg-omx). It seems the OMX version works best, but I can only get still images and no streaming. I've tried everything from changing vcodec, audio: fake, to messy with image size. I don't get any error codes in the terminal.

This is what the current one shows on json:

"platform": "Camera-ffmpeg-omx",

"cameras": (


"name": "Stue2",

"videoConfig": {

"source": "-re -i rtsp: // xxxxx: xxxxx: @ / live",

"stillImageSource": "-i rtsp: // xxxxx: xxxxx: @ / live",

"maxStreams": 2,

"maxWidth": 640,

"maxHeight": 480,

"maxFPS": 5

& # X200B;

Other things I have tried: uninstall -re and add -rtsp _transport tcp, clean remove -re, uninstall the packages and reinstall them.

VLC player shows the power just fine. I just can't get it to stream through the homebridge / homekit.

Does anyone have any ideas?
