Live Camera stream as screensaver (or similar solution)

    Hi Stefan Dekkers ,

    You can try DESKTOP CAMERA , the detail on MyNx > Works with Nx, also DESKCAMERA website.

    Maybe you can ask if they had such functions. So far, Nx Witness does not support Screensaver-like function.

    Maybe a better workaround would be dual monitors, and let the dedicated monitor do the task at a time.(One for register, the other one is camera feeds.)

    Hi Stefan Dekkers,

    There is no function inside Nx Witness that allows you to do this.

    But I did some DuckDuckGo-ing regarding this topic and found THIS ancient topic somewhere.

    The only thing you could change is instead of closing the application, you might consider minimizing it.

    Thanks for the reply, going to take a look at desk camera but i think is works the other way around. 

    we have 2 solutions we are trying / testing at the moment:

    1: Set NX witness exe file as screensaver
    You can turn any exe file into a screensaver, rename it into *.SCR
    When screensaver time is there it turns on the software, but closing it is not on mouse or keyboard strike.
    You have to manually close it with the X button.
    Problem here is i cant let NX witness boot full screen with preferred camera view, or can i? 


    2: We found a piece of software to load a webpage as screensaver.
    on mouse or keyboard input it disappears like a real screensaver. 

    Now we need to test if this browser supports RTSP streams.

    Software involved:
