    CPU going to 100% overnight

    IS there an issue with the Hikvision cameras? I've been running thirteen of them for years now. And so far I haven't noticed any problems. Instead of using a VLAN I have my cameras and BI machines physically separated on my network. So the only time it should go outside that section is to...

    Blue Iris 4 to 5 Migration Guide

    I never got around to upgrading my systems to BI5. So I'm wondering what the upgrade price is now? I guess i will need to test it with my backup BI machine first. And then get a second license to upgrade my primary BI machine. EDIT: I'm guessing the prices are still valid on the first post.

    Is H.265 realistically possible?

    An i5, 8th gen or newer will work fine with this. Since it has six cores. I know my low end, 8th gen i5 has no issue with fifteen cameras at 15FPS. Ten 1500P 3MP, three 1500P 4MP, and two 720P 2MP. Heck even my old 3rd gen i5 works with this. My backup BI machine. But the CPU usage is very high...

    Blue Iris 4 to 5 Migration Guide

    I still have version 3 on both of my machines. I guess when I decide to update to BI5, I will also leave version 4 on. Sent from my Nexus 7(16GB)

    New build for 4K cameras. i9-9900K?

    Things are much faster when reading and writing the video from an SSD or NVMe drive. The videos populate almost instantly. While things are noticeable slower if I did that from a platter drive. Plus SSDs are so cheap now.

    New build for 4K cameras. i9-9900K?

    I've been using a 1TB Samsung EVO with BI for around five years now. I've had between twelve and fifteen cameras in use during that time. With most 1500P. I've only had around 100TB of data read and around 100TB of data written during that time. And the drive still has 80% of it's life left...

    Blue Iris 4 to 5 Migration Guide

    Wow!! Thanks for all the info in this thread. I think I will wait awhile before paying for the upgrade to BI5, for my two BI machines.

    Anyone running 8th gen Intel without memory leak problems in Blue Iris?

    My core i5 3rd gen can handle 15 cameras with most at 1500p. But there are plenty of times the CPU gets pegged at 100%. Both the 8th gen core i3 and the third gen Core i5 uses four CPU cores. I switched to an 8th gen core i5 last year which has six cores. Now my CPU usage is down to around 30%...

    Anyone running 8th gen Intel without memory leak problems in Blue Iris?

    C Drive Failure - Starting Over

    That's why it's a good idea to backup things periodically. I use MS One Drive since it gives me 1TB of space. So I store important files, pictures, videos etc. there in case I have any issues with any of my PCs. Plus I'm able to access the content from any of my PCs, tablets, phone etc..

    Correct firmware upgrade for my cameras

    Yes. I started using Hikvision cameras around four years ago. I've never updated the firmware and I've also never had any issues with them.

    Unable to update?

    Did something change? Because I was able to update both of my Blue Iris PCs using the update button in the BI settings. Or is that only because I had not updated them in awhile? Sent from my Nexus 7(16GB) using Tapatalk

    BI optimization help - i7-6770HQ, 6 cams, 15MP, 150MP/s

    I use direct to disc with triggers. It still makes a difference in the two setups I have with BI. My current one with an 8th gen core i5. And my backup, which was my previous setup, with a 3rd gen core i5. Sent from my Galaxy S8 using Tapatalk

    Unable to update?

    I guess I'll need to do this for now. And also do it with my backup BI machine. Then when version 5 comes out, I'll purchase the extended service plan for both my primary and secondary BI license. So I can upgrade to the new version.

    BI optimization help - i7-6770HQ, 6 cams, 15MP, 150MP/s

    Are you using Direct to Disc recording? I'm running three 4MP Hikvisions(1500P), nine 3MP Hikvisions(1500P), and three 720P HooToo Cameras. All use 15fps. And Direct to Disc recording. The bitrate to the PC from all the cameras is typically around 60 to 70Mb/s. And on a core i5 8400 Intel, My...
