    How To Upgrade Amcrest / Lorex to Dahua Firmware And Get All Dahua Features

    I just recently flashed the Amcrest IP5M-T1179E with the Dahua IPC-HX25(8)XX-Molec_MultiLang and it worked flawlessly. However, on one camera I forgot to first disable the "AMCREST" logo overlay before upgrading. Now, I have the Dahua firmware, and a stuck Amcrest logo with no "disable logo"...

    Unable to use ONVIF with authentication enabled

    Bingo. I just downloaded the Dahua equivalent firmware and it works like a charm. Now I see ONVIF section. And the answer to my question is YES, it does not require a Plugin when using the Dahua firmware. THANK YOU!

    Unable to use ONVIF with authentication enabled

    Ok. I may play with that on a local camera. I have 6 of them at the remote site, and while changing over to Dahua may be simple, it's a step I'd rather avoid due location. On an aside, one of the really nice features of the Amcrest firmware on this model is the ability to view the camera's...

    Unable to use ONVIF with authentication enabled

    @wittaj - did you flash Dahua software on to the Amcrest camera?

    Oh how I wish that would have worked, but unfortunately I'm running the Amcrest firmware, not dahua....

    How to view main stream clips from UI3?

    Glad to hear I'm not the only one. I just fired off an email to Ken with your comment about stream resolution included. Thx.

    Unable to use ONVIF with authentication enabled

    I sent a support request ticket through their website. The response said they'd escalate it to their "back end support". They also suggested updating the firmware as whatever is on the camera is apparently not the latest version. Have not had a chance to try that in the interim, but will in...

    Unable to use ONVIF with authentication enabled

    I'm all ears on where such ONVIF account settings could be entered/verfied/configured. I've searched everywhere in the camera's web pages for a secondary set of creds, but haven't found any place where they're listed. And on Blue Iris, I don't know of a separate place for ONVIF creds either...

    How to view main stream clips from UI3?

    It looks like this was fixed with today's release. I can now view main stream on all clips. However, all my alert clips start at the beginning of the main clip. Thumbnails are correct, but when clicked, they just go to the beginning of the entire clip. Gonna rebuild database. Maybe that'll...

    Unable to use ONVIF with authentication enabled

    Has anyone run into issues with using ONVIF inspection with the ONVIF authentication enabled? I have a remote camera which I access via port-forwarding on the router at the remote site. I am unable to use ONVIF to configure the camera in my Blue Iris software unless I disable the...

    Questions about using ONVIF inspect on a remote camera not on LAN

    After doing some more research, I'm not at all comfortable with keeping the ONVIF authentication disabled. Especially since the camera is exposed via port forwarding, explicitly on port 80 - which is what ONVIF uses.

    Live cameras switch to main stream just fine, but all clips play back only sub-stream via UI3

    Awesome! If only I was more proficient at searching... thanks so much!

    Live cameras switch to main stream just fine, but all clips play back only sub-stream via UI3

    As a new convert to the sub-stream craze (my CPU went from 60+ to 15-ish) I'm still trying to wrap my head around how it's all supposed to work. When I'm in a group view (all cameras) the composite cameras are all sub-stream. That's ok. When I click on a camera, it comes up full screen, and...

    Questions about using ONVIF inspect on a remote camera not on LAN

    I discovered the issue, and will leave this thread up for anyone else that may experience a similar problem. After disabling the ONVIF authentication within the camera gui (settings/network/connection/onvif tab/disable) I'm now able to use the ONVIF inspection and the resulting main/sub streams...

    Questions about using ONVIF inspect on a remote camera not on LAN

    I am trying to remotely log into an Amcrest IP5M-T1179EW-28MM located an in-law's house. I have full access to the remote network (admin router access, VPN to network, and port forwarding to camera) but am unable to get the ONVIF feature of BI to work properly. Ultimately, my intent is to have...
