MotionEye video not displaying

Just setup Motion and MotionEye to grab the RTSP video from my Unifi Video camera and convert it to a usable format. I can see the video using the Motion URL when I add it to a browser. When I add it into a Video Player tile all I get is a grey blank tile. The video never displays. I've tried this in a couple of different browsers. Not much to configure here, so I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong.

I've tried the other URLs that MotionEye provides and it's all the same result. Just a blank grey tile. All of the URLs work in the same browser outside of the dashboard.

Kept poking and I figured it out. The template needs to be Image and then the URL is the snapshot version with a 1 second refresh.

Thanks for this. This is also the solution for Synology diskstation (and Synology Surveillance Station).

I run a Hikvision NVR, and am able to use the Synology to change the feed to mjpeg, and then get it to the dashboard.
