πŸ“Ή FoggyCam - Nest Camera Recorder

FoggyCam Logo

A tool to locally capture your own Nest camera stream. You can read more about my approach in the recently published blog post. This approach supersedes the previous implementation that relied on the /get_image API and instead captures the H.264 stream directly through the Nest WebSocket service.

Configuration

To get the project to work, edit camera_config.json.

Setting Description
ffmpeg_path Local path to the FFMPEG executable. You can download FFMPEG for free.
issue_token TThe full URL to the iframerpc network call when logging in to https://home.nest.com. You can capture it through your browser.
api_key If you have a x-goog-api-key value from existing network calls, use it here. Otherwise, skip the value.
user_agent The user agent for your web browser.
cookie The value of the cookie from the response to the iframerpc network call when logging in to https://home.nest.com. You can capture it through your browser.

Running the application

Open foggycam.sln in Visual Studio and build the application. In the long run, I will make sure to make this easier and remove the need to use Visual Studio.
