Integrating Blue Iris web browser
#1
Hi Everyone,

I've been trying to get my Blue Iris web browser put into my interface, but am confused on how to create the html file to place in the html root directory.

From the Jpegpull page, I tried to right click and save as; and tried to copy the source info into notepad and save, but neither worked. Get an error that file can't be found.

I'd appreciate if anyone can walk be through on creating the proper html file. I am a novice with html, and that's probably where the problem is.

Thanks

Prashant

Anyone using the Blue Iris cameras?

If that JPEGPull page just returns a JPEG image, then you may just be able to use that directly in the web widget. At least that would confirm whether you are getting the image or not, though maybe it won't be formatted like you want. Using the wrapper page in the CQC browser is more to control the formatting of the image, to get rid of margins and stuff like that.

Try a search on the forums. Blue Iris has been mentioned here before with comments regarding integration (If I remember correctly)

Dean - BI is a NVR package, not a camera(s). - your comments are still just as valid though.

Hi,

I use Blue Iris for my cameras. All of my interfaces are on iOS devices, so my solution may not apply to you. For anything other than a quick view, I use the native Blue Iris app

On my interface screen, I use OnLoad to load the default image of each camera.

IntfViewer::RIVACmd
P1=OpenOverlayURL
P2=http://<BlueIrisUrl>/image/Cam1
P3=0,125,640,480
P4=overlayId=ovCam1,refreshInterval=3,scaleToFit=no

The P3 argument changes for each camera location. 2nd camera is P3=0,605,640,480

So, in theory, you could put into a web widget the URL:

http://<BlueIrisUrl>/Image/Cam1

And that would get you a snapshot in the web widget, right?

Yes, that will work. I use the Riva command so the images refreshes on the UI

You can also put the Web widget the full pull htm link like this to get "live" video and have access to any stored clips that may have been recorded. For example:

xttp://192.168.1.10:port/jpegpull.htm

where :port is the port # if you have mapped something other than standard (put an x in to http to prevent it becoming a url)

Additionally, there are example threads on the Blue Iris web site where people have modified the existing or created new htm pages.

I do the same as listed above, for touchscreens (not riva) I just show the jpegpull.htm page so I can view clips. For the iPads, I do a rivacmd. When clicking on the link, I check the user name used to log in and if it's user "iPad" then I open up a different page with riva cmds.

I also have a screen shot of an individual camera based on a trigger for my Elk. Driveway alerts pull up the garage and doorbell alerts show the front door. Using these commands, I get just a snapshot of the occurrence. The Cam1, Cam6 refers to the short name you set up in Blue Iris when you configure your camera.

Code:
If System::Equals
    P1=cam1
    P2=$(Variables.GenergicLogMessage)
    P3=No Case

web-CamView::SetURL
    P1=http://192.168.1.152:81/image/Cam1

txt_time::SetText
    P1=Doorbell Alert! %(StdRTV:Hour):%(StdRTV:Minute)

End
If System::Equals
    P1=cam6
    P2=$(Variables.GenergicLogMessage)
    P3=No Case

txt_time::SetText
    P1=Driveway Alert! %(StdRTV:Hour):%(StdRTV:Minute)

System::Pause
    P1=10000
//Pause 10s for car to appear in camera

web-CamView::SetURL
    P1=http://192.168.1.152:81/image/Cam6

End
