  • Extremely simple UI, just a few buttons.
  • Runs offline. Requires no access to the internet, you only need to be connected to the same network as your camera.
🤔 What permissions are required and why:
  • storage: To save the last URL used, it will autofill the URL input on reload, or next use.
  • webRequest, webRequestBlocking: To modify the headers on incoming images. To prevent cors issues. Especially when adding the image to canvas to make a downloadable screenshot, or a paused image for MJPEG mode.
  • <all_urls>: So we can modify those headers on all image URLs you input.

🤖 Note for Android users: Toolbar button cannot be pressed on the 'new page' tab.

Navigate to any webpage, then click the three dots menu > Add-ons > 'Camera Viewer' and the Application will open in a new tab.
