Hi guys, I have a screen with a webview control linked to an IP Camera's mjpg stream (

Using an IPad Gen 1 and the IPad native OpenRemote app, the problem is that every time I switch to the screen a new connection is made to the IP camera and the previous connection(s) will not disconnect either (no time out..)..

So after switching to the screen a few times the stream becomes very slow and will eventually show a page stating it ran out of available connections. When I leave the app and come back, it is still the same, but when I actually kill the app and start it again it will work correctly again (the first time I enter the screen).

Is there a way to make sure that the webcontrol gets destroyed/recreated when I leave the screen (go to a different group) or enter the screen?

Thanks for reporting this, I'll take a look at the web widget code in the iOS console and see if we can force a disconnect when navigating away from a screen.
