Floodlight Pro Blue Iris?

I may have rushed in my purchase for a flood cam and made a mistake. I have two v3 running to Wyse docker bridge and into Blue Irs and all works good. I just installed a floodlight pro and can only get thumbnails to show up in the dicker bridge.

Has any one had success getting this camera loaded into blue iris or did I make a mistake and should have ordered floodlight v2 instead of the pro?

The FLv2 does work in Docker Wye Bridge because it uses regular TUTK protocol, but the FLPro apparently does not. There are people working on that, and think they may have found a way to get it to work, but for now it doesn’t.

I believe that for now, some people get FLPro into an RTSP conversion through Tiny Cam pro in server mode. You could run this on an android emulator on your computer/server and get an RTSP URL for the FLPro on that, then give Blue Iris that link to get the FLPro in there like you want.

I think Docker Wyze bridge might eventually figure it out, but for now it’s not working through that docker. Same with the BCPro, VDBPro, and OG cams. Almost everything else does work with DWBridge though.

I did some reading and others had recommenced using Tinycam Pro server to get the feed into blue iris . I have set Tinycam up on my Nvidia Shield have it linked to my Wyze account and my 2 V3 and the FLP show up . I can get the steam to play on my PC that has BI installed using a weblink and with VLC. I can figure out how to add the feed into BI.

Can anyone help me with what to enter in BI to add the stream from Tinycam as a camera?

thanks

It’s been a while since I did it.

You need to toggle on the "Web server"setting in the menu.

From there, you need to find the RTSP URL link for each camera. You might get that by clicking on the camera and then web link. Or you might get it by opening a browser, go to the Web server address that shows up under that web server toggle. Then you should be able to get the individual RTSP URL link for each camera. Copy that link into blueiris.

Sorry, I’m mostly giving steps by memory ATM, so apologies if you have to do a little exploring.

I used Chat GPT to give me instructions and got it working
