Webcam image without reload

I'm trying to setup my camera in DWC, but I'm having some issues.
The camera feed is a multipart/x-mixed-replace stream ("Motion JPEG"), so it doesn't need to be reloaded. I seem to remember earlier versions of DWC accepting 0 as the update interval to accomplish this, but that doesn't seem to work in 3.2.2. A zero value isn't accepted and saved, and reloading the page brings back the old value. I've tried to enter a really large interval, which it does seem to accept, but for some reason, it starts reloading every five seconds after a while anyway.
Also, the webcam URL I enter always seems to have a random (?) number appended at the end. With the "Do not append extra HTTP qualifier when reloading images" option turned off, it's a query parameter. Turned on, it's appended with an underscore. Can I turn this off completely? I just want to use the exact URL I entered.
