Trying to figure this out, when I click "Test", PTZ camera does not move and a box pops up stating "received xxxxxx bytes".
When I paste the command in Chrome the UI login comes up, if I login then the camera moves.

Command entered in Chrome: 192.168.1.7:81/admin?camera=PTZ&preset=11&user=xxxx&pw=xxxx

After login this appears and the camera moves.

I was struggling with the same issue when I was trying to change profiles via URL command. I ended up going into Blue Iris Settings > Web Server > Advanced (bottom of web server tab). Then I unchecked "Use Secure Session Keys and Login Page". The URL command works and the only difference I see when using UI3 is that a login pop-up appears instead of the login screen.

I found this through trial and error after playing with several settings, I *think* this was the one setting that made it work, but it could be a combination of something else I also did.

Thanks @th182 that did the trick. It is working as expected.
Also, didn't change the UI3 login, same as it ever was.

Thank You for these videos!!! They are great! I started playing with BI 2 days ago. Never would have figured out motion detection without these! Probably would have dumped BI out of desperation. BI now is wonderful. :goodpost:

Just wanted to say thank you for these videos as well, they have greatly helped me better understand BI and many of its functions. Watching your videos, I was able to better stop some of the false triggers setting up zones in my yard where I had a lot of tree shadow movement in the wind. Good stuff sir!
 
Hi, I just wanted to drop a note saying how great these videos are. I have watched some and plan to watch them all as I get my BI up and running. Your work is greatly appreciated!

I'm not sure if you've ever thought about it, but a "part 0" video showing what to do when a user starts up Blue Iris for the very first time might be helpful. (How to add cameras, how to set different drives for recorded video, etc.)

would love a video on one cam triggering a PTZ to move to a desired preset...seems BI5 setup may have changed a bit for this and wiped out my commands/script

Great videos Dasstrum!!
I still don't understand how should I setup the storage(New, Storage, what sizes should I chose, etc.). Sometimes shows in red and I don't understand what should I do.
It would be nice a video about this as well.
