Getting raw video stream from nest cameras


Hi developers,

I am aware that in the Cameras API we are able to get the live video stream with the web_url and app_url methods. However, this would either open the video embedded in the Nest website or to launch the Nest mobile app. Is there any way for us to get the raw stream so we can incorporate it to our proprietary website or app?

If not will this be a future feature?

Thanks in advance!




Hi Bill,
We don’t have this yet. Would it make sense to try using an iframe as a workaround?


Hi Betsy,

Thanks for the heads up. I just wonder if the iframe solution will work for a private stream?

Kindly please advise.

Thank you.
