    Strange hiccup during recording

    Thank you, gents. Here is what I am using for the Profile. I don't want to use fixed times forever, but for testing I thought it best to use a time schedule so I know there is no automation getting in the way. For Exposure, I am setting everything to manual for the same reason as above...

    Strange hiccup during recording

    Sorry to say that this camera is still struggling. Here are its current settings: And a snippet of 67 seconds of video with four dropouts. Any and all ideas are welcome.

    Strange hiccup during recording

    In diagnosing my original problem, I realized that I am really ignorant about the profile and video settings for my Dahua cameras. Is there a "best practices" or tutorial anywhere that gives a detailed analysis of what these settings do?

    2022 EmpireTech Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday Sales

    Hi Andy. I've purchased from your refurbished list in the past but only ever during your Thanksgiving/BF sales. Do you keep the refurbished list up to date during the year? How would I monitor it?

    Strange hiccup during recording

    Thank you @fenderman @bigredfish I've gone through all my Dahua camera settings and changed the codec to GENERAL and h.264.

    Strange hiccup during recording

    Thanks @wittaj @BORIStheBLADE @fenderman The CPU is an i5-6500 typically running 40-45%. 16GB RAM. The camera is at 15fps. Here is what BI shows (ip=50.57): The log I am looking at doesn't show signal loss, but I may not be seeing the right log. The MOTION at 3:16:40 is the alert that...

    Strange hiccup during recording

    I'd appreciate it if someone would look at this short video and give me some idea what is happening. Two times, at the 9:15 and 9:19 points, it seems to stop recording, as indicated by the time code. At 9:15, the picture seems to be still for 3 seconds, then jumps to 9:18. A second occurrence is...

    5.5.8 - June 13, 2022 - Code Project’s SenseAI,

    @MikeLud1 Mike, I notice in your reply on static objects that your settings have "Use mainstream". I'm slowly catching on but I thought you always recommended to uncheck this option. Is that right?

    IP Cam Talk Custom Community DeepStack Model

    I just read all 761 posts in this thread and now I can't find the one I'm looking for. Using CP.AI, I'm going to switch to @MikeLud1 's general and animal custom models. But, in the interest of efficiency, I'm happy for all the animals to be combined into one "animal" classification. I thought...

    Thank you, @MikeLud1 I did as you suggested, and to my utter amazement, everything seems to be working. I have a lot of work to understand and fine-tune the trigger sensitivity and custom model selection, but basic functionality is there.

    5.5.8 - June 13, 2022 - Code Project’s SenseAI,

    I am about ready to take the plunge and upgrade from Deepstack to CP.AI. I'd appreciate any advice or comments on the proper approach. Currently running an I5 Windows 10 system with a Quadro P400/2GB DDR5. BI is 5.5.7.11. (I installed an older version of CP.AI but it didn't work right and I...

    Looks like more effort being put into Code Project AI enhancements the last couple of weeks

    I just asked the question in another thread "is now the time to move to CP.AI?". Since you are one of the more helpful people, I'm looking forward to hearing about your experience. Did you do it?

    5.5.8 - June 13, 2022 - Code Project’s SenseAI,

    This seems to be the most active thread for CP.AI questions but if there is a better place - just tell me and I'll go away. In your opinion, is the time upon us where it's time for a follow-the-recipe type (e.g. me) to convert from DS to CP.AI? Should I wait for any dramatic new and improved...

    Warning Blue Iris Update 5.5.9.4 Might Kill DeepStack

    I'm experiencing the same problem, so I uninstalled DS (using the Windows Program uninstall). I noticed that the C:\Deepstack directory still exists with all or most of the DS files. Is this normal or does it indicate a failed uninstall? Would I be better off reverting to BI 5.5.7.11?

    Blue Iris with AI but which one though?

    I have the Quadro P400. Does this card meet the specs? From the SenseAI web page:
