Adding IP Camera for video as Overlay on Half the Screen

Here you can post about the issues related to modifications performed manually (not through the kiosk wizard). Example: swapped kernel, added 3rd party modules or files.
Please describe in detail what has been changed and hopefully other kiosk user will be able to help.
Porteus team wont resolve bugs posted in this category as we support only modifications made by the kiosk wizard.

Adding IP Camera for video as Overlay on Half the Screen

Is there a way to add a IP Camera as an Overlay to a website so that live video can show on one side and a website show on the other?

This setup is not supported in default kiosk system.

Customization will be needed: VLC or second browser instance must play the video stream.

Thanks
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.

Hmmm.... How about two 'iframe's on one web page, side-by-side, one for the website, one for the video? Would that work?
