Re: Newbie stupidity or bug?

When you sent your ticket did you use the support button in the Blue Iris settings screen so it included all the Blue Iris information including your license? I know if you didn't include that there have been times the emails went to the spam folder on their side. I sent a question last night and go...

Re: Help with expanding system

I updated to Blue Iris 5.4 last night and updated DeepStack then switched to the built-in DeepStack integration today and now my CPU hardly even registers and my RAM usage dropped from 70% to 23% we'll see where the RAM usage is in a few days as it used to start out around 53% and go up to 70%, but ...

Re: Always Record and Record on Trigger

It all depends on your use case, if you have a home automation system like Hubitat, Home Assistant, or SmartThings you can have them change your profile base on something like the home automations modes. I use Hubitat to set the profiles based on the Hubitat's current mode that way my internal camer...

Re: Help with expanding system

Each camera would need to have the substream enabled if not already on then each cameras settings in BI need to be configured for the substream URL, I think I have mine setup right but Matts can verify.

Re: Help with expanding system

In my experience, using sub-streams is where it's at. Thanks to your post I finally took the time to enable substreams on all of my cameras except 1 and now while live streaming all feeds the CPU goes to around 55% instead of 90 some. I have 1 camera, a Dahua SD12200T-GN where whenever I try to ena...

Re: HomeKit / Homebridge Example

This is what I'm using:

Code: Select all

-re -i http://user:password@192.168.4.98:82/mjpg/LivingRoom/video.mjpg
Where LivingRoom is the camera's short name.

Re: Help with expanding system

To clarify, it's more efficient to generate the overlays from the cameras and not on Blue Iris? Newbie question here, but how do you know you're at 33% if you're not viewing the live feeds? When I have BI loaded, all the live feeds are present. Can they be turned off somehow? That does present a pr...

Re: Help with expanding system

I'm running a 6th gen I7 with 16 1080p or higher cameras, running around 33% CPU most of the time except when I'm viewing the live feeds then its pretty much pegged. I have all of the cameras set for 15 frames / second, iFrames at 15, and H264 or H265, they all overlay the date and time which they s...

Re: In Person Help Needed

Once you find a cameras IP address and connect to the web interface on it you should be able to see a live view so you know which camera you're dealing with. What brand of cameras are they? Also, even the cameras that are still working should be looked at to make sure they either have static IPs or ...
