    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.

    Just wanted say "Thanks" for all these videos!

    I watched them all last night and they answered most of the questions I had about Blue Iris. Very valuable, and thanks for taking the time to put these together.

    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!

    I came here to say the same thing. @Dasstrum, your videos are very helpful. They are detailed but not long winded. Thank you.

    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.)

    Thanks,
    I am going to give it a few weeks before starting on any videos - One thing i've learned from any beta or product after release is that it can change very quick!

    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
