    Hello, trying to save a few bucks. I’ve posted earlier about upgrading to 30 cameras from our 20 that we currently have. We have some Dlink my cloud cameras. model - DCS 8010lh

    After loads of research online I’ve found that theirs no username and password for the camera..
    What im stuck at now is getting blue iris to see the feed. I’ve managed to access the camera and get some settings. and gives me the url stream links to view camera feed. when I type the ipaddress followed by the link, it starts to download the file..
    I just can't get it to show feed the feed in blue iris...

    any help.. attached are screenshots..

    What is the first screen shot?


    Please screenshot this part where it shows you the URL.


    Edit: Ok, so it looks like that IS the first screenshot. Well. Have you tried any of the DLink options in Blue Iris? There a bunch of them. Many are for MJPEG but there are a few that may pull H.264.

    I’ve also found the jpeg.cgi as well. which also can't get to work. This is the recommenced use for iSPY.

    This is why I recommend using the built-in DLink configurations. It is excessively complicated setting up a camera manually now (as in your earlier screenshot), with redundant choices for port number and protocol and no obvious way to know what takes precedence.

    Choose similar models. Often, cameras from the same manufacturer share the same URLs.

    soooo still working on this. I have 2 different types of Dlink cameras. The other camera I gave up on.. Now im trying to figure out how to add this to blue iris. I can get the jpeg stream to work but the quality is crappy. can only max out at 640x320 and 5fps. where as the other h.264 profile is 1280 and 30fps. I just can't get the stream to load in blue iris although I got it to load in VLC...
    This is what I used..
