Cura 4.1 no embedded camera stream

Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura 4.1 no embedded camera stream

I just upgraded to Cura 4.1. I got Cura and Octoprint talking by updating the octoprint plugin but there is no video stream shown when I am in the 'Monitor' window in Cura. It works in 4.0.

It also works in the web interface for Octoprint.

I suspect there is some setting that I did not configure correctly (or at all) when going to 4.1 and I could use a pointer as to where to look.

 

TIA

Just to add some detail .... I have a print going. I can load Cura 4.0 and it displays the camera picture just fine. If I now close 4.0 and open 4.1, instead of a camera picture I get a white clear space. The interesting thing is that the tool and bed temperatures are displayed correctly in both 4.0 and 4.1 as is the IP number of the octopi that is running things.

For reasons unknown, things started working. I hit the 'connect' button on the printer configuration / octoprint section and the picture showed up. I should add that I tried this multiple times before without joy. Some gremlins, some confused bits, I don't know but it started working <shrug>

Still experiencing strange things ... whenever I start Cura from the beginning, I have to go to the printer interface and connect with octoprint in order to see the embedded video stream from the printer camera. This was not required in any previous version. It's either something broken or something changed that requires some sort of switch to configure to automatically connect.
