Question  [REQUEST] Blue Iris Support
Post: #1
Any chance some one could do a addon for blue iris ip camera software? Perhaps a quick and dirty way to view a webpage that is generated to view mpeg like the one below. Or provide a guide to show me how I can access the feed in XBMC without an addon similar to how Windows Media Center was able to display webpages using MCLs.

Blue Iris URLs are as follows: http://192.168.1.120:8000/jpegpull.htm

I am viewing my cams in XBMC through Blue Iris via stream files. Here's one of them:

cam1 was my first cam, plays beautifully

I was able to setup individual streams but I would like to have a feed with all 4 streams displayed simultaneously.

I use Blue Iris and I currently use advanced launcher to launch the default web jpegpull web interface for blue iris. I mapped keyboard shortcuts tab and shift tab to my remote so I could use the remote to navigate the web interface, somewhat any way. I also use this addon: http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=182540 to send overlay images to xbmc when motion is triggered.

Although these solutions work it would be awesome to have the ability to:

1) All Cameras at once, Individual Cameras or Individual Cameras cycled all with remote friendly navigation
2) View Clips and stored images from Blue Iris
3) Get pop-up image notifications upon events triggered by blue iris (This works great from the addon I linked to above however it would be nice if all these functions were available in one addon)

Could you give us a step by step?

For viewing BIs webpage from xbmc:

1) First make sure you have BIs active x plugin installed.
2) Install the addon advanced launcher for xbmc, within advanced launcher create a launcher to launch ieexplore.exe with parameters -k http://BI-IP-ADDRESS:PORT/
3) I use event ghost to map "tab", "shift+tab", up and down arrow keys and enter to my PS3 bluetooth buttons for basic navigation on BIs web interface.
Update:
4) After creating the launcher make it a favorite and depending on what skin you use you can add the favorite into your menu somewhere or access it from a favorites menu.
5) I also mapped ALT-F4 to a remote key so I could press a button and close that internet explorer kiosk window with a button press from the remote.
6) If XBMC is in fullscreen mode, after you create the launcher, edit it and go to advanced modifications and select toggle xbmc into windowed mode...


If you need help with the addon security cam overlay I referenced previously, I suggest you have a look in that thread. You should be able to find everything you need to get that going in that thread and it isn't too big of a thread at this point so it shouldn't be too difficult to figure out. But if you end up needing help with that I will try and help you out over in that thread. There is also a link to an addon in that thread that someone posted specifically for foscams which seems like it would be pretty nice for some people.
