    Blue Iris Updates - Official Thread

    my system did not like at all. ram went straight up to nearly 6G and CPU jumped straight up to 100 and stayed there. reverted back to which was stable (for me) for more than 24 hours up time. that is a big improvement (for me) on previous versions which had been randomly...

    I have always had awesome service from Andy and his deliveries are currently taking 8 days to reach New Zealand, which is faster than some domestic suppliers here at the moment, with level 3 lock-down. Chris. [not a builder]
  3. B - RTSP sub-streams for high-MP cameras

    me too, on 1x 8MP dahua, I followed someones advice and de-selected "use RTSP/stream timecode" in BI and that seems to have fixed it.... time will tell.
  4. B - RTSP sub-streams for high-MP cameras

    Recommend LPR Camera

    I have slightly different settings for all 3 cameras as they are each at different angles, distances, lighting conditions, etc (3 separate locations) The main tip I can give you is forget about using default settings and experiment with manual exposure settings (for daytime I am using 1/2000...

    Unexpected shutdowns

    for me, has been a big improvement and almost eliminated the unexpected service restarts..... I have had two days uptime now with no restarts on 1 of my BI systems and only 1 restart on the 2nd system this stability along with main (HD) streams now showing in UI3 makes me very happy

    How minimize wind noise?

    I have had great success with small bits of self-adhesive "Draught Excluder". I apply 3 bits in a triangle surrounding the tiny microphone hole. Kills wind noise but microphone is still effective. It comes in 5m rolls, 5mm wide, consists of many fine synthetic hairs sticking out of the adhesive...

    Small Setup - NVR Recommendation

    BI rocks! You may start out small but adding cameras is addictive. I started with 3 and am up to 29 now that BI can handle them (using substreams).

  14. B - RTSP sub-streams for high-MP cameras

    I just tried matching FPS & iframe (on main stream and substream) on one camera and did not see any difference, so am leaving the others as they are (low FPS on substream).... happy with the trade-off and don't use autocycle
