Re: 'C:\ProgramData\Blue Iris\temp' folder.

Found this when looking into something else... BI Settings 'Other' tab. At the top is the BI 'Temp path' with 'C:\ProgramData\Blue Iris\temp' as a default. Thanks MikeBwca, I never knew there was a settings for BI Temp path. I am guessing for some strange reason Thixotropic Temp path didn't get cha...

Re: 'C:\ProgramData\Blue Iris\temp' folder.

I'm running version 5.1.0.4 (x64) which I think is the latest. Maybe this folder is only created on demand or in response to some event. (??) I just installed BI v5.1.0.4 on another PC in trial mode and noticed that it did not create the 'Blue Iris\temp' folder and when updating to a new version, i...

Re: 'C:\ProgramData\Blue Iris\temp' folder.

Hmmm, I don't even have a C:\ProgramData\Blue Iris\temp folder. (??) Just recently, this folder path was created, possible after version 5.1.0.0. I noticed when Blue Iris updates to a newer version, it downloads the Update.exe file to this folder instead of the Program folder C:\Program Files\Blue ...

Re: Video Skips

Re: 5.1.0.1 - System tray icon missing?

If I roll back my version to an earlier version, then the Blue Iris icon properly appears in the System Tray. Out of curiosity, how does one roll back to a previous version? It's mentioned on pg 165 in the manual, but there are no specifics on how to actually do it. When the Blue Iris app updates t...

You should be able to use the Schedule feature as MikeBwca pointed out. BI5 Camera Schedule.jpg BI5 Camera Sched...
