Diplaying stream of IPCam results in "error 401: Unauthorized"

  • Hey.
    I wrote a small module to display the http preview of one of my IP cameras. The module simply creates an <img /> tag and uses the URL of the camera as src:
    <img src="http://{user}:{password}@" />.

    The URL works fine if I enter it in my browser or in a new Chromium window on the raspberry running SmartMirror. Unfortunately it does not work inside the mirror itself 😕

    There is only 1 error in the developer console: “Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 401 (Unauthorized)”.

    Any hints or tipps why the URL cannot be viewed within the mirror window?

    – edit –
    If I enter the URL of the mirror in the browser of my computer, the stream works without any problems.
