    From time to time I have tried to export a large BI video to MPEG-4. Is there some kind of a limit to the length of time or the size of the video that can be exported? It always seems to stop exporting before the full video export has been completed.

    Has anyone seen any current deals on new or refurbished desktops to host 15 ip cams with Blue Iris? Probably an i5 or i7?

    Windows automatic update

    I did some teaching of the treads before I posted but apparently I did not work hard enough to track it down. I would love to do as you suggest and I suspect there is a way to disable the windows log in requirement that is now required after a restart. I will look into that as well.

    Windows automatic update

    I purchased a Lenovo desktop running windows 10 so I can run Blue Iris with about 18 cameras. It all works great! I can't believe how hard it is to stop the darn machine from doing an automatic restart after a Windows 10 update, thus shutting down BI. I have done a lot of research and there...

    BlueIris Mobile

    I figured it out. It was because I did not have webserver>advanced>authentication set for ALL CONNECTIONS. Once set for ALL, only the designated camera group was available to the new user.

    BI Remote Security

    Were would I find the log? I suspect because BI creates an anonymous user with no password on its own even after I delete them. Twice while sitting at my computer I heard the audible login sound. I will look into your #2 above. This may a vulnerability. #3: I disabled NAT Port Mapping...

    BI Remote Security

    I have had a BI web server set up for several years and opened up port 100 on my Airport Extreme router for this purpose. I suspect this open port has become a problem as I have suspisicions that some one is remotely accessing my computer. Are there a couple SIMPLE things that I can do to be...

    Port 81

    When setting up a BI web server the BI documentation recommends using port 81. Why is port 81 any better than any other port?
