    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...

    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 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...

    SOLVED: System suddenly running at 100% CPU

    I am returning on 2/18/21 to complete this thread. Apparently a recent update from the BI system returned each cameras' "hardware acceleration" choice from "default" to "off". With 40 cameras, and 100% of the load shifted back to the CPU, it rendered my PC as useful as a boat anchor. Going...

    Help: Clip: Disk not ready errors (yes, me too)...

    I have a single 5TB internal HDD for video clips (D:) that is used exclusively for all clip storage. DB and other OS files are on an SSD (C:). I'm getting the dreaded "Clip: disk not ready" error periodically. There are no clips that aren't readable from the console or UI3, so these seem to...

    My best video yet... Finally got my timelapse moon and sunrise...

    It's been a bunch of trial and error, but I finally got my best video yet: This was snagged on the Amcrest (Dahua) IP5M-T1179EW-28MM (a mind-blowing $49 on Amazon when on sale). With the starlight sensor and shutter set to 1/3 second, it really snags great moonlit images. This was recorded...

    Timelapse problems/questions

    For several years I've been using a PTZ camera (SUNBA) mounted on my chimney to capture a frame every 10 seconds during daytime hours from sunrise to sunset. It has resulted in some pretty spectacular timelapsed clips of morning clouds/fog: Over the last few days, I tried to...

    Anyone seen this error before? "FORCE quitting CGadSocket thread"

    When I initially upgraded to 7.12 a couple weeks ago, I noticed that a few of my cameras had frozen images (first image after restarting service). If I disabled global hardware acceleration (under main settings) they all worked. Or, if leaving it on (set to Intel) and disabled HW acceleration...

    Wifi, small, 12V, ONVIF/NVR capable spy camera for installation in truck bed - recommendations needed

    I have a topper on the back of my Tundra, and on long road trips, I keep my 3 big dogs in the back. I have an Android head unit and a permanently install travel router. My phone's hotspot powers the router (wireless internet service provider; aka WISP mode), so that multiple devices in the...

    Intermittent "Clip: disk not ready" error on 5.2.3.1

    I have been recording my clips successfully to a Zyxel NAS for more than a year (probably going on three). Last night we had some pretty serious storms roll through - which tripped 3 of my GFCI circuits - but never killed power to the BI machine or to the NAS. Starting right around the peak...

    My BI won't run... Process is "suspended"

    Update: The problem was with my clip storage drive. It WAS completely full and I missed it. Once I made room, BI sprang back to life. Operator error. ------ Over the last week or so I've started getting "restart after unexpected shutdown" crashes several times per day. It's been getting...

    Pandemic threat? Anyone else concerned?

    Is anyone else starting to get concerned about what's happening with the coronavirus from Wuhan? It's difficult to know what is trustworthy information, and why is hype, but honestly, I'm starting to get a real uneasy feeling about what little 'legitimate' info is being reported from the WHO...

    Unexpected shut down in log after any restart (manual or for update installs)

    For some reason, for the last few months, I've noticed that my BI5 doesn't shut down properly when I either restart the PC, restart the service, or install an update. It hangs for a while on "stopping service" and then eventually does restart - but the log has "unexpected shutdown" every...

    Want to get PTZ up about 50' above ground level... suggestions?

    I have a large (12 acre) vacant/unimproved (no utilities) lot that is currently has no cameras. I've run a PoE+ line from my house to where I'd like to mount a camera. It is deep in the woods with only a small area and driveway cleared. I'd like to mount the PTZ high enough to see over the...

    What external input device (i.e. relay input) are you using with Blue Iris?

    I know the manual discusses sea-level stuff, but I know very little about those. I've had a neighbor ask me to help him set up a camera system, and he wants to use sensors to trigger alerts like I do. My home configuration is a bit complicated, and I don't think it's the most efficient for...

    Flickering overlay when playing back D2D with "overlay during playback" turned on

    I've had this issue from the moment Ken added the option in V4. At some point, he added the ability to retroactively add the overlay data back onto the replay stream so that direct-2-disk recordings could still show that info. With this option turned on, when viewing either on the BI...

    Text overlay transparency all messed up after upgrading to BI5

    Well, I searched as best I could, and can't seem to find this issue anywhere else. Sorry if this is addressed elsewhere. After failing with the upgrade early on (within the first week or so of BI5 release), I finally attempted it again today. Wow, how much smoother! Everything that I had...

    Video removed - FedEx drives over neighbor's dog, no brakes, doesn't stop

    This just happened a few hours ago. I am an animal lover, and it breaks my heart to post this. But, we need some opinions on how to proceed. We live on in a VERY rural area where the only vehicles on our road are UPS/FedEx/USPS or the two families that live on our mile long street. My...

    Does effective lightning protection for cat5 exist?

    After suffering my first significant lighting strike damage last week, I've been doing some research trying to find a way to minimize my exposure to a repeat of what happened. I have cameras and switches spread out over large areas, with many 500'+ runs between locations. From my home, I have...

    [Pictures] SD59225 struck by lightning... Warranty? DIY fix?

    I bought two of these cameras in August of 2018 from Andy. And while the "warranty" thing is a bit tongue and cheek - as I'm sure charred lightning damage is probably NOT covered, I would like to verify the integrity of the camera. The cameras are mounted about 20' above ground on existing...

    BI4 is forgetting key on two unrelated systems...

    This is something that I would normally contact Ken over, but since I'm sure he's buried in hundreds of emails related to the upgrade to BI5, I'm hoping someone else here might know what to do. Several days ago, a friend of mine, who I'd originally helped install blueiris, contacted me in a...

    Strange BI5 console behavior - freezing/missing portions of screen?

    This is how it looks when I first open the console: After going full screen and back to the group view, it looks like this: My console keeps freezing up. BI5 is running fine, but it seems the screens stops updating, or won't refresh. Works good until I click around on cameras or go full...

    Ugh.. I just hosed my system trying to update to 5...

    EDITED TO ADD: Solved. Delete any and all references to Blueiris or Perspective in the registry. One key with 'a1' will not delete until you manually edit the key's permissions to include admin with full read/write permissions. Then reboot, reinstall v4 (you'll need your key), then import...

    Security concerns: Dev back door?

    There's really no tactful way to ask this question without impugning Ken's character. And that is certainly not my intention. He has provided me with no reason to question his ethics or character. A couple of years ago I was having some issues which we were unable to resolve using the...

    BIT keeps erroring and stops updating Wunderground

    I've had this error pop up randomly over the last year or so. It's been quite intermittent, and not annoying enough to post about it until recently. When it happens, BIT remains up and reactive, but none of the weather operations and buttons function. I stead it says "waiting for...

    Emailed alert video clips no longer preview in Gmail (browser)

    It's a bit hard to describe this in the title, but here's what I'm looking for...

    Very recently my subject camera remains in B&W mode during the day. I have the schedule on the camera GUI set to normal. The exposure settings are set to outdoor/auto. And the night/day settings are set to auto. For some reason, despite the full brightness of the mid-day sun, the camera...

    My IPC-HDW4231EM-AS went dark...

    I just sent an email to Andy, since I bought the subject camera from him about a week shy of a year ago. A few days ago, the camera went dark and required a power-cycle to get it to come on. At first I thought it was the cable (it's a long exterior underground run) but the cable tested out...
