Surprisingly, not much... 2-3 percentage points. Was sitting at 4-5% CPU usage overall, now I'm at 7% idle, increasing to 10% when I "stimulate" the cameras. (still sitting on the bench, so I wave my hands across their fields of view)

Re: Live view only updating when selected.

You can try posting a picture of your settings page so we can take a look. My favorite thing to point out (because it frustrated me for a week wondering why display and triggering were so poor) is you probably want “limit decoding unless required” unchecked. It sounds good but it means BI only disp...

Re: Reolink RLC-810a usage

Hi all. I'm using Reolink RLC-822A cameras, 8 of them. I followed sbaker's directions to a 'T', and BI seems to be reading the streams properly. It even records properly when triggered, etc. But I'm having problems with the matrix / live view. It only updates the individual camera windows either whe...

Re: Live view only updating when selected.

So the main stream works with either simply / or: /h265Preview_01_main. The substream uses: /h264Preview_01_sub. Both of these strings match what's provided by the reolink documentation. It's also what BI automatically fills out for main and sub streams after inspecting the cameras. It's still reall...

Re: Live view only updating when selected.

My expectation is that the live view / video wall gives me a continuously updating view of the outside of my house, from the substreams, and that I can expand those views and see the main stream with a double-click, all regardless of if the camera is triggered at that moment. Yes, that is how it wo...

Live view only updating when selected.

Hi all. I'm using 8 Reolink RLC-822A cameras, and after a ton of fiddling and reading other forum member's experiences, BI seems to be accepting the camera streams with no issues. However, I'm still having one issue which may or may not be related to the idiosyncrasies of the Reolink cameras... Live...

Re: Reolink Gotchas

I'd like to add to this thread that this issue exists with the Reolink RLC-822A as well. Subscribing to only the main stream results in smooth 4K video, but, as expected, also very high CPU usage. Adding the substream drops the main stream down to .5-2FPS. Adding only the substream isn't perfect eit...
