Stream of single cam from BI

Post by genedarrell » Wed Sep 16, 2020 4:10 pm

I am working to incorporate blue iris video into our SCADA software. It uses an embedded version of IE in the software to display web pages. If i direct the browser to the main page of the BI web server it works fine. If I direct it to a single camera stream of http://BI_IP:BI_PORT/mjpg/Cam_Short_Name/video.mjpg it wants to download the mjpg file as it does not know what to do with it. Any ideas?

Rather than incorporate BI into your SCADA, Why not stream directly from the cameras themselves? This would reduce BI usage quite a bit, and make things simpler.
