Reverse proxy for stream

Post by amcrest110 »

I have an IP8M-2493EB and I need to set up a reverse proxy to get around passing credentials in the URL. I currently get the stream through http://admin:[email protected]_CAMERA/cgi-bin/mjpg/video.cgi . I'm using nginx but can't get it to work properly -- has anyone had any luck serving the stream without credentials?

When I try to hit :56700, I am prompted for auth even though it's hardcoded (below). Even when I enter the correct credentials, it fails. What am I doing wrong?

Code: Select all

    server {
        listen 56700;
        location / {
            proxy_set_header Host $host;
            proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
            proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
            proxy_pass http://IP_CAMERA/cgi-bin/mjpg/video.cgi;
            proxy_set_header Authorization "Basic xxx";
I've also tried adding proxy_pass_header Authorization; but no luck
