Something weird in your apache configuration.

Ment to put this in the original post, when you go to *** it redirects me to this: **

Does the same problem when my apache server is off.....going to dig into the BI server.....

It works fine when BI webserver is turned off.

@bp2008 Figured it out, not sure when the behavior of this changed or its somthing else. In BI setting, under Web server tab; Virtual was set to "/", I changed that to "/bi" and it then was not redirecting every / to the BI UI3 page. I'm still not sure whats going on this this or if this is correct behavior but atleast i am able to show a diretory now on my web server. Also, im not sure whey the two on different ports are interacting like this.

@xGROMx Did you configure apache to proxy traffic to Blue Iris?

As you have the two web servers running on different ports, that is the only way they would interact.
No, I expect them to operate totally separate thats why I am baffled of the behavior.
"
This morning with the Virtual setting changed in BI to get my directory listings to work, I am getting an error on my UI3 "JSON API unreachable at "bi/json". this may be the result of using a reverse-proxy server incorrectly.

I know I am doing somthing incorrectly.....but this hasn't been a long term problem. This apache server has been running for some time now.

Apache config:
#
# This is the main Apache HTTP server configuration file.  It contains the
# configuration directives that give the server its instructions.
# See <URL:http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.4/> for detailed information.
# In particular, see
# <URL:http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.4/mod/directives.html>
# for a discussion of each configuration directive.
#
# Do NOT simply read the instructions in here without understanding
# what they do.  They're here only as hints or reminders.  If you are unsure
# consult the online docs. You have been warned.
#
# Configuration and logfile names: If the filenames you specify for many
# of the server's control files begin with "/" (or "drive:/" for Win32), the
# server will use that explicit path.  If the filenames do *not* begin
# with "/", the value of ServerRoot is prepended -- so "logs/access_log"
# with ServerRoot set to "/usr/local/apache2" will be interpreted by the
# server as "/usr/local/apache2/logs/access_log", whereas "/logs/access_log"
# will be interpreted as '/logs/access_log'.
#
# NOTE: Where filenames are specified, you must use forward slashes
# instead of backslashes (e.g., "c:/apache" instead of "c:\apache").
# If a drive letter is omitted, the drive on which httpd.exe is located
# will be used by default.  It is recommended that you always supply
# an explicit drive letter in absolute paths to avoid confusion.

#
# ServerRoot: The top of the directory tree under which the server's
# configuration, error, and log files are kept.
#
# Do not add a slash at the end of the directory path.  If you point
# ServerRoot at a non-local disk, be sure to specify a local disk on the
# Mutex directive, if file-based mutexes are used.  If you wish to share the
# same ServerRoot for multiple httpd daemons, you will need to change at
# least PidFile.
#
Define SRVROOT "w:/Apache24"

ServerRoot "${SRVROOT}"

#
# Mutex: Allows you to set the mutex mechanism and mutex file directory
# for individual mutexes, or change the global defaults
#
# Uncomment and change the directory if mutexes are file-based and the default
# mutex file directory is not on a local disk or is not appropriate for some
# other reason.
#
# Mutex default:logs

#
# Listen: Allows you to bind Apache to specific IP addresses and/or
# ports, instead of the default. See also the <VirtualHost>
# directive.
#
# Change this to Listen on specific IP addresses as shown below to
# prevent Apache from glomming onto all bound IP addresses.
#
#Listen 12.34.56.78:80
Listen *:80

Well heck.

Go to task manager > Performance tab. At the bottom is a button to Open Resource Monitor. Inside Resource Monitor, go to the Network tab and expand the Listening Ports section and sort by Port number. See if anything unexpected is trying to listen on ports 80 or 81 for TCP protocol. Try closing Blue Iris and apache and making sure the expected changes are witnessed in the Listening Ports section.

Hi,

I have been having a number of issues of late; UI3 is close to being Unuseable after BI version 5.4.9.18.

The main issue I have is that video playback, when viewing the 'live view gallery' is very poor and choppy. cameras are displayed frame by frame until you click on a specific camera, it then plays at the correct frame rate.

another side issue is that I personally don't like how the camera colours / banners are now displayed in UI3.

I haven't been able to find any settings to change these behavious?

Rolling back to BI verison 5.4.9.18 restores correct functionalty and everything works just perfectly. Personally I love UI3 just as it is in this version.

Please could someone advise if the playback issue I have is expected behaviour when viewing all cameras in the gallery, or is there an issue?

If so, please can this be changed back to how it used to be!

Thanks
When your in UI3 right click on a camera and select group settings, then set show camera names to force off. This will only make the change on that system for as long as the cookie lasts. But it doesn't remove camera names in the main BI application.

@bp2008 As of now everything seems to be working smoothly. After your last post I thought of the problem may be within windows, and it was. Windows firewall was redirecting traffic between 80 and 81, recreated the rules and now its flowing right. Must of been an update or something, running Server 2016.

Thankyou for all your help, and the work you are doing with this, its amazing.

I noticed when using the date picker and selecting "Today", it seems to default to yesterday's date. Is this normal?

Is there anyway to force the auto-maximize option to 'on' through a URL parameter. Have a rather annoying set-up (iPad through home assistant through iframe through....) that doesn't remember any settings, log-in info etc upon browser restart.

EDIT: Hmmm doesn't remember idle-timeout either so disconnects too - problem for wall mounted iPad. Might have to rethink this...
