Re: List Of Supported Cameras

I am using about 15 different Chinese odd ball cameras and a couple Dahua and BI detected all of them and categorized them as generic/ONVIF and assigned various Main and Sub stream inputs.

Re: SubStream Help

I have some Chinese cams that default to /0 on the main stream box.. I entered /1 in the sub stream box and works well. Does not hurt to experiment. If it works the camera will be displayed within a few seconds of saving when you enter OK.... Then in the settings GENERAL tab it will show the main st...

Re: Format drive

If you 'loose' your drive with Blue Iris and do not have a backup of your settings then when you install it on the new drive you can just enter your ID and BI registration number and it will activate. It will cancel the activation of the former setup.

Re: CPU overload

Sub streams are the way to go with BI now that the bugs are out. I run an i7-4790, 22 cameras at 15fps, no hardware acceleration, averaging 16-18% CPU usage.

Re: Total refresh

Export your BI setting to a USB drive or somewhere so those cameras will be a snap to reinstall to the new BI.

Re: No updates for a week and a half!

5.2.9.20 was released today. I have had no issues since .18 and .19 so I am assuming it is near perfection as far as I am concerned.

All cameras are set to use the newer SUB STREAM feature which Ken has managed to get most of the bugs out during the last 2 releases within the last week. My C...

Re: Performance tuning: a surprising result, have others had this?

10 to 15 fps is fine in BI Wait until you try the new sub stream feature that was implemented in recent updates. I run 20 cameras on an gen one i7 and my CPU usage ran near 90% with my fps set at from 10 to 15. After configuring the sub streams it now runs around 25% CPU. Actually you are in good sh...
