I've not tried it but you could probably use something like these 
instructions to set up your IP camera feeds as an additions source. You 
would have to create a suitable m3u file with channels pointing to your 
IP camera's. Not sure if you would need to create a m3u8 file for each 
channel or just point the m3u file directly to the rtsp feed. It would 
be great if you do figure this out to update the wiki with better 
instruction for this use case :)
