Blue Iris
I have EdgeRouter Lite. Not sure what the difference is, though.
Some of my devices: Sonos, Aeotec zWave, Nest, Rain8Net, Various H/T
What's next: CQC-Voice, Brultech GEM

Dragging up an older thread.

I am playing with BI again, maybe with the possibility of a driver but it has to do what I want.

I was playing around with the demp version and CQC and I want to get the live camera view into CQC. There is a mjpg stream available form the BI server but IE wants to save it and not display it (FF & chrome will display the image nicely).

I can get a snapshot that updates every two seconds in as a thumbnail for every camera easily enough.

Has anyone managed to get a BI camera image into the CQC IV yet? If so what is the URL you are using or how are you doing it.

Dean - need that rtsp widget I think to do this right.

I'm using this web page that a friend helped me with last summer (it's in the HTMLRoot folder).  It's not ideal in that I can only get about 2 frames per second, but it's better than nothing.

            * {
                padding: 0;
                background-color: rgb(45, 45, 45)
            img {
                height: 100%;
            body {
                overflow: hidden;
        <img id="camera"/>
            var camera = document.URL.split("?")[1];
            var image = document.getElementById("camera");
            function refreshImage() {
                var date = new Date();
                image.src = "http://<BI server name or IP>/image/" + camera + "?time=" + date.getTime();
                setInterval(refreshImage, 600);

I use this with a web image control, and modify the URL accordingly for each of my nine cameras.
There is a widget that can do the same thing now - you point it at the jpg image and set the refresh to what ever time value you want - mines at 2 seconds - that may have to be how I do it, just a bit faster on the popup when viewing it.

That's the one he mentioned, the Web Image widget.

Not sure if this helps, but this is what I use in CQC for viewing BI v4.  It displays at a good frame rate in a 650x450 web browser widget in CQC.  This files are on the BI server in the www folder and CQC points to the jpegpull3.htm.

Here is a link to a much improved browser based viewer called UI2 that a Blue Iris user developed. I have not had the time to try and integrate this with CQC, might not even make sense but sharing in case it is of interest to others.  It offers a fair amount of configuration options for how things are displayed

Also learned things in the message thread along the way such as the ability to set up groups in Blue Iris and the ability to specify the monitor resolution that the group will be displayed on, supposed to improve the image quality of the cameras displayed in the group. You do this by selecting the group you want to configure at the bottom left of the main blue iris camera screen and then click on the gear icon.  You will have an option to set the monitor resolution.
