Are there plans to port Blue Iris to i.e. Asustor NAS?
It has been asked many times over the years, presently there are no plans to port BI to anything other than the native Windows design it currently operates on. If a developer came along at some point that wanted to actually do the work and work with Ken, then maybe. But as it stands - the development team specializes with Windows.
We don't have any insight into Ken's roadmap but, as mentioned already, so far the application is only a Windows app. There is plenty of intellectual property wrapped up in the application so far and therefore I don't expect Ken to allow anyone to work on porting it to any other OS. But you never know.
Which is why it should be run in a VM under Linux, maybe even in a Docker container.
Blue Iris 5.x x64 | Windows 10 Pro x64 | 16GB RAM | i7-7700 3.6 GHz | 1TB HDD | 2TB RAID NAS | 9 Cameras | Almost Dual NIC | 2KVA UPS
LOL, yeah, add that to the feature request list.
If you really want to use Linux, maybe run a vm hypervisor within Linux with a Windows guest... seems efficient, no?
