So you only have one ipCam set up through the BI plugin still?

For each ipCam you want to set up to connect to BI, use the ip address and port plus the log in credentials for the BI server and then specify the camera by the camera short name you used for it in the BI server. This is in the Advanced>Extra Parameters>Variables section of the camera. For me it is like this:

URL: /image/Cam2?q=80&s=80&time=now
DirectStreamingURL: /mjpg/Cam2/video.mjpg
Thnx but this did not work for me for some reason.

I now have 8 cameras setup but I could only add them via the  Develop App section.

I set up each one like this:
"Create a new device (apps --> develop apps --> Create device), enter the following

Upnp Device Filename: D_DigitalSecurityCamera2.xml
Upnp Implementation Filename: I_BlueIris.xml
Ip Address: <IP ADDRESS OF BLUE IRIS server>:<Port>
Click "Create Device"
Reload Vera"

This give me all the cameras. So once this is done I just go to advanced and change the "cameraname" to the BI Short Name.

BTW sorry for the length of time it took to reply. I am not familiar with this bulletin board system and a I thought i would get an email if someone responded to the thread.
