I have been using IP Camera Viewer Pro for the Roku.

Roku

It cost about $5.00.

You can test with the free version first it only let's you setup one camera.

See example on setup from one of my cameras. Once you setup one camera you just need to copy an existing camera give it a different description and change the camera Stream URL to point to the BI new camera short name.

I point to my Blue Iris IP and port not directly to the cameras. I couldn't get many of my cameras working in IP Camera Viewer but pointing to BI they all work.

You can even point to a camera group name and display the group of cameras.

You can also set it up so it is the Roku screensaver if you want to display your cameras.

Hope this is helpful.

Forgot to mention you need to turn off "Use secure session keys and login page" in BI under Web Server Advanced for this to work.

Another tip if you purchase the Pro version don't delete the App or you need to purchase it again. I have it installed on three Rokus.

Or you can find your Roku IP address in the Roku Settings/Network menu and, in Blue Iris, add it to the Limit access by IP address list, starting with a carat (i.e. ^192.168.10.111, where 192.168.10.111 is the IP address of your Roku).

That's great! Thanks everyone, so here is a quick recap highlighting my questions and what i needed:

1. turn off "Use secure session keys and login page"
or
in Blue Iris, add it to the Limit access by IP address list, starting with a carat (i.e. ^192.168.10.111, where 192.168.10.111 is the IP address of your Roku).

2. stream url= camera = /mjgp/Cam7? ( "Cam7" is the short name of camera or of group you created in blue iris in this example)

For me the default quality was pretty blurry so for those who need it, add “?q=90” at the end to bump quality up. 90% seems to be good enough for me but you can adjust accordingly

I simply added a Amazon wireless Firestick to my TcL Roku TV. Side loaded Chrome onto it and use UI3 with a bluetooth $20 dinky keyboards/mouse pad. Not too shabby.
