Hello, I have enabled individual cameras for Echo and clicked discover devices in Blue Iris settings but still no luck

Anyone got this working, if so please can you point me in the right direction, thanks

Amazon Alexa integration with Blue Iris has been depreciated and no longer works. Blue Iris used the "discovery" model in Alexa to control cameras by emulating a Smart plug instead creating a Skill app. I believe Amazon has depreciated the "discovery" model used by Blue Iris. I don't understand why the developer has not removed Alexa integration with Blue Iris since it does not work.

It would be great is BI had a skill that allowed camera viewing on an Echo Show. Monocle software is said to work with some cameras to allow Echo viewing, however I was unable to get it working after wasting a lot of time trying. I did manage to get the BI web interface to show up on the Echo, but it take too much effort to worth it.
