    Renewal Refused?

    To roll back, I am guessing, you used the button under settings called 'Check for News and Updates' then tried to install 'another available previous update'? I have never used that method. I suppose I am just over cautious, but when I have needed to roll back a version (or 4) I exported my...

    Renewal Refused?

    In the meantime, you can (I would) roll back BI versions to find the last valid version on your registration, and try to enter your renewal in that the ver least it would get rid of the evaluation version banner. Just to be clear: 1. you are going to the Settings gear in the...

    Do you remember when you were clueless about cctv and started with BI?

    I would say I am still in the learning phase and I have been using BI for about 3 years. I setup an 18 camera system for a business and run a 7 camera system at home, both Blue Iris. I am also involved in a 30+ camera system at a business that is not BI. Simply put, for the cost of the PC...

    Public mjpg webcam in Blu Iris

    If rtsp is enabled on the camera system's end this site may help you find/craft the correct url for access. I think the axis viewing page is doing something with java to play the video.

    File Storage Help Required

    You will her this echoed by many others here on the forum.....There is usually no need to move files from one drive to another. Set your storage for New to the W drive and do not concern yourself about moving anything to Stored. In most cases it uses resources and shortens drive life with no...

    IP Cams gone from Blue Iris (and network)

    A couple simple ideas... I would power cycle the POE switch. I would then try ONVIF Device Manager to see if it detects the cameras. If still no luck, I would disconnect all of the cameras from the POE switch, and reconnect them one at a time, monitoring between additions to hopefully locate them.

    Blue Iris UI3

    Do you mean to disable UI3 from requiring a login after 10 minutes of inactivity? If so, go to the 3 dots in the upper right, click on UI Settings, then change the value for the 4th setting from the top 'The UI will close itself after this many minutes of inactivity. (0 to disable)' to 0 (zero).

    Need help with my computer and blue iris

    The dahua config tool may be helpful. I generally use ONVIF Device Manager instead. For pretty much any option, the camera will need to be in the same IP range as the PC.

    Need help with my computer and blue iris

    A few things to start with.... 1, for best performance, plug the camera and the computer both into the switch. 2. what is the IP range your router is handing out? ie: 192.x.x.x? 10.x.x.x ? 3. the default IP address for a new Dahua cameras is usually 4. you will want to assign a...

    Is there a standalone BVR viewer?

    You could always give the cops the Blue Iris installer. They could then install and run it as the Evaluation version to view the BVR files.

    Export of clips is greyed out

    I generally download the clips from the UI3 interface and didn't notice the change in BI from 4 to 5 until your post. :idk:

    Blue Iris Tools - Weather Overlay, Watchdog & more!

    Wow. Just Wow! So instead of complaiing about a pop-up that (at least for me) does not affect the actual functionality of the add on, why don't you create a new free tool and release it to the community here instead?

    how to set up Static Ip addresses

    One note, in my experience it is better (more stable and more secure) to set the static IP within the camera's setup, making sure it is outside of the router's DHCP address range. And I second (third?) the opinion that WiFi and security cameras are not a good combination unless you have no...
