A very simple TeslaCam browser
To use this app, simply click the "Open..." button and browse to the
TeslaCamfolder (either by plugging the TeslaCam USB drive into your PC / Mac, or possibly accessing it as a network share over WiFi if supported). It'll aggregate clips by date and present them on a calendar, and a dropdown list to select individual events on that date.
Basic video playback controls let you view all available cameras side-by-side. Clicking on a video will open a file browser pointing to the source file.
Installation packages are available on the Releases page.
While using the installation packages is the simplest option, you can also run the app from the command line (you'll need to ensure Electron is installed first).
cd teslacam-browser npm install electron .
You can run the app as a standalone headless server, even on a Raspberry Pi:
cd teslacam-browser npm install node server.js /path/to/TeslaCam
You can then open the app in a browser by pointing to http://localhost:8088 (replace
localhostwith address of your server).
It appears newer Tesla software versions encode video in HEVC / H-265 format, which Chrome seems unable to handle. All you'll see are blank areas where the videos should be, and clicking "Play" will throw an error (shown in a red box). If this occurs, clicking the "Browse" button will attempt to open the app in your default web browser. If it still doesn't work, opening the same address in Safari (macOS) or Edge (Windows) should help.
If you've installed tesla_dashcam, you can use it to merge clips from the command-line using a folder path provided by TeslaCam Browser:
