Blue Iris: Cycle through cameras?

Shesakillatwo 8 months ago in Media Tiles / Video Camera Feeds updated by Terry (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 8 months ago 3

Within my LAN I have been able to successfully access my Blue Iris Streams from the Service using the method here.  Replacing the "Short_Camera_Name" in this string with "Index"will display the full set of cameras in one screen.  Is it possible to bring up the view which cycles through the cameras with some other name in place of "Short_Camera_Name"???  If so I have not been able to determine what that name is.......

Actually found my answer after doing some searches.  This can be accessed and works well.  Where I had replaced the "Short_Camera_Name" in the string with "Index" to see all of the Cameras, replacing the "Short_Camera_Name" in the string with "@Index" will have this media tile cycle through all available cameras.   I found pulling in multiple cameras into a panel at one time caused the Blue Iris Server CPU usage to go way up.  Doing this allowed me to have the one tile cycle through the cameras more or less accomplishing what I wanted with one Tile and Stream.

I don't think automatically cycling through cameras will work, because that is unlikely just a single MJPEG URL. It's like a web page with a script running that keeps changing the particular camera stream reference.

But I don't know for sure, so let's wait for additional answers from Blue Iris experts.
