Re: Lost my HD w/ver 3.66 should I upgrade?

I would take that as the perfect time to get the latest version installed. That would mean purchasing the software again or at least a support agreement I'd send support an email asking what you'd need to buy to install v5 since you purchased v3 last. I started early in the v4 lifespan so I don't ha...

Re: Burn Timestamp into Video

Needing to Encode to record Overlays is not longer true. BI was modified a while back in regards to Overlays, I think around 5.2.8.1. BI now includes overlays with Direct-to-disc (d2d). The overlay is separate from the video, but stored in the bvr file as Metadata. When the d2d is played back, the ...

Re: BI 5 Upgrade for iOS

Push notification images were fixed after the new mobile app and the BI server version that came out at the same time as the mobile app update. The newer BI server version 2.5.3.x now supports using the intel GPU offloading with h.265 streams to shrink the storage footprint of each recording so you ...

Re: Burn Timestamp into Video

Blue Iris can overlay the time or other info into the recording but it requires direct-to-disk to be turned off which in turn raises the Blue Iris CPU load significantly. Doing it at the camera level as the others have said is the best method if the camera supports it.

Re: Upgrade BI 4 to BI 5 ....easy config transfer?

My guess is the issue you were having with export/import or registry settings from one BI4 instance to another was going from a 32bit OS to a 64bit OS. I think you'd still have that issue with BI5 as its an issue with how the registry locations change and since the export files are encoded to make t...

Re: Recommended hardware configuration for 43 cameras

H.265 started working for me after version 5.3.3.x with the Intel acceleration enabled.

I wasn't sure either I tried both, but I was thinking it would use the input folder specified in the main settings if left blank. I installed 1.77 (the previous release by vorloncd and it is working great on my BI server it has the ability to run DeepStack from it's settings and it even remembers th...

New AI Tools fork by vorloncd

Does anyone know if Vorloncd is on this forum or what I'm doing wrong with the newest fork of AI Tools 1.81?

Re: Your advice/opinion

Can I hijack this thread a little bit to ask for some advice about cameras? I’ve recently learned of Dahua and am pretty impressed with the prices. Very interesting to read here about the 2MP camera low light performance. I’d like to install a couple cameras outside of my house and one of the speci...
