On the Playback tab is there any way of adding a video from another source to play alongside the cameras? I can't figure out if this is possible.

Thanks.
Michael

Hi Bob,

No, this is not directly possible. The Smart Client can only playback/stream/search etc. sources added thru the Management Application. Possibly you can add the "other source" using the DirectShow driver.
Best regards,

If I have an app that generates a video can I add that to the Management Application?

Well,

you can actually add a HTTP URL directly to the SmartClient... The SmartClient has a built-in web browser which can render HTML-pages. But take care, the built-in browser is rather ancient (probably corresponding to IE6), so it might not be able to render all pages.

As I got curious, I have just added an entire Axis P5532 to my SmartClient via the URL of the cam. Worked :-)

If you can find the URL of the stream of your camera, you might even be able to get a video without all the cameras menus etc.

Good luck!
