Re: FPS and Bitrate

So yes, at least per the BI manual... the "Maximum Frame Rate" and "I-frame" should be the same value. If you want that to be 15fps (I think that is likely perfectly fine), then yep! You should be able to almost instantly verify your settings on the BI Camera tab that we started this post with. Shou...

Re: No updates for a week and a half!

Upgraded to .20. Knock on wood, other than the new features that have come out in recent months, I haven't had issues at all. I know others have had different experiences though.

Re: Noble app

And to go with that, it's most likely that your server IP on your LAN is not routable so it would need a different external IP when accessing remotely.

Re: FPS and Bitrate

From my understanding, the "Max Frame Rate" in the BI settings is mostly useless. That said, I do always manually set it to match the camera. On to the real topic... it doesn't look like the ReoLink has configuration options for the Key Frame from the screenshot. From a little googling, I found some...

Re: green progress bar on clip icon?

I actually see the same thing while BI is loading up (before going "Active"). I always wondered what it meant but some of the icons or colors etc that are a part of the interface I'll probably never fully understand. For me the green bars go away once I'm live.

Re: No updates for a week and a half!

I noticed the same thing... after updates nearly daily it's giving me withdrawal.

As an optimist I'm going to assume either it's vacation time or simply that BI is "fixed"

Re: FPS and Bitrate

The keyframe and fps is changed by loging into the cameras interface directly. If you have a fps of 15, and a keyframe rate of 15, then the the 'fps/key' will show up in BI as '15.0/1.00'. I'll have a go at this and maybe turn some of them down a bit so they end up at or near "1", which is what I u...

Re: CPU overload

You could also try configuring the substreams of your cameras. It should lower your processing quite a bit while still maintaining the same quality recordings.

Re: Black Screen in RDP playback

If it is headless currently, the cheapest test would be to try a monitor on it first to see if that resolves the issue. If that does fix it, and assuming you don't want to keep a monitor connected, the faker thing sounds like a great solution. I had never heard of these, seem like a cool thing! *** ...

Re: MicroSeven Wide-Angle cam

Wow that is a fantastic night picture. Is that with pretty much the standard defaults or did you tweak it? Are you using any IR emitters? My cameras to the front of my house have pretty good night time light sources so I keep them on full color normal mode (I also found they had issues after a few d...
