I would have been nice if they made a way for VLC to connect to it. VcXsrv Windows X Server, goes full screen which is kinda useless without being able to resize it.

Why don’t you just pipe it directly to VLC?

with wyzecam.WyzeIOTC() as wyze_iotc:
  with wyze_iotc.connect_and_auth(account, camera) as sess:
    for (frame,_) in sess.recv_video_data():

python | VLC - --demux h264

Because I know to little about Linux, and know even less about Python. But I can copy and paste 😉 Thank you for the info though. I need to research more, as my goal now is to have a RPI board do this, and then (if possible) act as a streaming server so that on my PC I can use VLC to connect to the RPI board to receive the video feed.

OK, sorry everybody! I was ssh’d into my Ubuntu machine (I’m real old school). When I executed command from the machine terminal itself, boom, there I was in living color! Example works! Whoo-Hoo!

On to next leg of the journey!
