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...

Re: Black Screen in RDP playback

I'm using a server OS, can't recall if I've ever RDP'd to a headless Win10 machine (assuming OP is using a headless system - it might be connected anyway). I can't think of anything.... I'm assuming everything looks normal in the UI3 viewer and mobile app - if you're using that? Sounds like another ...

Re: hardware Acceloration

I only use remote viewing either on my laptop or phones/tablets. the only time I use direct viewing on the BI Server is when I remote into it with RDP to make changes. other then that the server just sits in my rack. since I am using remote for playback and live view, graphics card still will not m...

Re: Evaluation water mark now showing despite registered account

To kind of bring it to a close or answer my own question.... I went ahead and subscribed to the yearly renewal. From the best I can tell the way to cancel, if you should so choose, is to make an account with the MyCommerce/ShareIT/Digital River website using the same email address BI is registered t...
