Streaming depth to web browser

I'm running Indigo on Ubuntu 14.04 on a Nvidia Jetson TK1, using an Asus Xtion Pro Live.

Is it possible to stream the depth from a primesense device to web browser? I understand that it is possible to stream the rgb to a web browser using mjpeg_server and openni2.

When I try to use mjpeg_server, and I subscribe to the topic /camera/depth/image_raw, mjpeg_server gives the error Unable to convert 16UC1 image to ipl format.

And when I subscribe to /camera/depth/image, mjpeg_server gives the error Unable to convert 32FC1 image to ipl format.

Can anyone help me?

This is excellent! Also, I think you should move your answer from the link you provided to here instead! I think it's more relevant here. I noticed the quality parameter doesn't work. Will it be included soon?

I'm having difficulty trying to show this on my webpage using the img tag. Do you know what's wrong?

What is the URL you are trying to pass in? It should be in the format http://localhost:8080/stream?topic=/I... Note the & after the first initial ?

I'm actually trying to get the stream from a network device rather than localhost, so the URL looks something like

The stream_viewer URL will display an HTML page with the stream already embeded inside of it. To get it inside of an image element src, use
