    Blue iris feed casting

    Anybody have experience working with Blue Iris streams. I’d love to be able to set up a voice command that casts my cameras to the tv. I don’t know if it’s my URLs or limitations of the various parts. I can see the cast try, but no luck with either media or webpage cast.

    Does the URL work in a regular web browser? If so it might be a limitation of the TV.

      yes it does. was wondering if that could be it. Using a latest gen chromecast dongle on the TV, so was hoping that not be the case.

        I would like to know this too.

        Perhaps we can cast from the camera snapshot? I was just trying this, but no images come up....

          Did a bit of research and it appears for some using the mime type of image/jpeg is required. I've tried this along with the url to the camera via blue iris.

          No luck, nothing shows up on the TV.

            Got it to work. I removed username/passwords when pulling up the URL. It now works. It's pushing via chromecast to my google display in my kitchen.

            I need a way to embed the username/password.

              Interesting, are you only able to pull individual feeds or the multi-cam page generated by BI? I’d be curious to know what formatting you used.

              thanks!

                Use the following URL.

                http://IP:81/image/Index.jpg with mime type of image/jpeg

                  FYI, it's been a while since I got to play with this, but the ultimate solution was to use the following URL:

                  http://IP:PORT/mjpg/index/video.mjpg (still with the image/jpeg mime type)

                  Haven't played much with why, but cast media seemed to be faster than cast web page
