Something to keep in mind... if you are also adding other dynamic text overlays to the video (e.g., weather info via Blue Iris Tools BIT), unlike the time stamp they are not encoded back into the playback stream when you apply this setting. You WILL see text overlays, but they will be the currently displayed overlays, NOT the actual overlays from the time of the clip. In other words, the overlay information you see in the playback will not be time-relevant to the clipThis is something recently added to the camera properties > Webcast tab.
In my screenshot the box is unchecked:
Been running BI for years and never tried this interface until I saw it was included, lol running it to watch my cams at work now, liking it so far.
No. There are only the URL parameters described in UI3's help file, but using those would require relaunching the whole UI in order to change streams.Is there a way to push commands to UI3 so that it can bring one group, camera to focus? My clients run external applications for motion sensing and other events and would love to be able to bring a specific camera to focus in the UI. I'm already integrating into BI via JSON, but there's no way to go one step further and manipulate the GUI/WebUI right now.
@bp2008 Related to BeeryGaz's question. If I have a camera group, is there a way to add/remove cameras from that group via API call?No. There are only the URL parameters described in UI3's help file, but using those would require relaunching the whole UI in order to change streams.
