Can't Delete Alerts; "Source file format is corrupt"

Trying to delete a few old alert videos, but Blue Iris won't do it. It complains that that the file is in use/busy. Closing and restarting BI doesn't help. Restarting Windows doesn't help. These same files that BI won't delete also won't play. BI complains "Source file is corrupt." However, I can do...

Re: New iOS App Is Deleting Protected Videos

That comes next. I wanted to do a sanity check first to make sure I wasn't just being stupid.

New iOS App Is Deleting Protected Videos

Just got the new iOS app, and so far I'm not impressed. The biggest problem is that it deletes alert videos that I'd marked to flag/protect. Every few days I lose a few more. I went from a dozen saved videos, to six, to two, down to just one. Before the iOS update, saved videos were saved forever. N...

Re: Whats the deal with updates

Count me among the frustrated.

Where can I find each specific older version to download? Apparently I need to downgrade mine to whatever was current the day before my one-year support expired.

Re: How to synchronize profiles with light levels?

Thanks for the tips. I've been playing with the camera-specific schedule for a few weeks, and it's... not great. Part of the problem is that Blue Iris only supports a subset of the camera's settings. For example, the camera has several settings for exposure, but Blue Iris only knows about a few of t...

How to synchronize profiles with light levels?

Like a lot of cameras, my Hikvision bullet cams can automatically switch between full-color "day" mode and low-light "night" mode, based on ambient light. When they do, I'd also like Blue Iris to switch profiles so that its motion detection and sensitivity changes accordingly. But I don't see any wa...

Re: Help setting up PTZ on Foscam R2

Update: With the help of this site (https://forum.athom.com/discussion/2530/foscam-ptz-preset-triggers) I was able to hack together commands to activate the camera presets. The syntax is: http://YOUR_IPCAM:PORT/cgi-bin/CGIProxy.fcgi?cmd=ptzGotoPresetPoint&name=PTZ_NAME&usr=Username&pwd=Password You ...

Re: Help setting up PTZ on Foscam R2

Thanks. That solved part of the problem. 1. 443 is the secure (https) port. Changing it to 88 made a big difference. Now the camera moves when I click the up/down/left/right arrows. However, it doesn't move when I click the presets (1-10) or use the drop-down list of presets. The "Call" button doesn...

Re: Unique Push Notifications

Blue Iris allows you to send push notifications to some mobile users but not others, and (I believe) those filters can be different depending on what triggered them. Is this what you want? For example, from a given camera's Setting page, click on Alerts > On alert... > "+" > Push notification. Then ...
