Does this look like the correct url to pickup the sub-stream from BI for the camera with the short name "frontdoor"?
And should I expect asking BI for the substream to be more efficient even if I want it in jpg format?

Thanks in advance

The releases notes are wrong. The documentation later on page 186 is correct:

0 for automatic (default), -1 for sub-stream, 1 for main-stream
So you want http://192.168.1.6:31793/mjpg/frontdoor?decode=-1 to force the use of the sub stream. If the resolution and quality is good enough, it will be substantially more CPU-efficient to get jpegs from the sub stream.

Also, you need a ? to separate the path from query string parameters. & is only used to separate multiple query string parameters. See my example above.
