    Blue Iris 5 Alerts Location?

    Excellent, Thanks for the clarity. Must be something I've never paid attention to till BI5.

    Blue Iris 5 Alerts Location?

    Quite possible I'm overlooking something simple, but ever since making the BI5 jump.... I can't figure out where my alerts are stored. I attached a picture of some different things I checked. When I go to the "save" location it's empty... If I right click an alert the "file location" is grayed...

    Blue Iris 4 to 5 Migration Guide

    updated.. Well, I finally had a little time this morning to kill so made the bi5 jump to 5.0.2.4 via an RDP session. As has happened to others, everything went really well and quick until I uninstalled BI4. Randomly after uninstalling I had an image of my mouse pointer in the middle of the...

    Blue Iris UI3

    Forgive me if this is old news but my brother just pointed this out and I confirmed that when playing back a clip in reverse, the video's progression bar keeps moving forward. In other words.. if your going in reverse, pause it, and are counting on the progression bar to know where you are in...

    Another Blue Iris CPU post... opinion

    Something minor I found interesting... With my setup... The more cameras I put on CUDA the more my total Watts consumed goes down, do to my CPU usage dropping. Moral of the story in my scenario at least... If your gonna have one of these power hungry cards installed.. you might as well use it to...

    Another Blue Iris CPU post... opinion

    not all my cams are at 1080.. I still have some 4mp and even an 8mp currently running with CUDA. I've spent some time on the blue iris helper, but once I get things running the way I'd like I'll def be spending more time on there in the future. That database has definitely been nice!

    Another Blue Iris CPU post... opinion

    I was hovering around 180w with my old radeon r7 With the EVGA 1050ti and using about as much as I can via CUDA about 200w So kinda surprised it's only showing about 20w more... This system isn't very efficient but I plan on cranking my cameras back up. From what I've been able to tell.. I...

    Another Blue Iris CPU post... opinion

    I meant the cheapest 1050 ti I could find =) But I needed a decent 4k GPU anyway so decided to throw it in our camera server to play with. I would definitely say the bigger the BI system is, the less impressive CUDA encoding seems compared to processor core power. Like I said earlier jumping up...

    Another Blue Iris CPU post... opinion

    I needed a GPU for a build anyway, so found me the cheapest, used evga 1050ti I could find and put it in my server to test. I just flipped to use CUDA in settings and left it this weekend. When I got back around to checking I realized Blue Iris went back to just using the CPU. I assume the GPU...

    Another Blue Iris CPU post... opinion

    As a follow up.. for now I ended up just doing an in place update of my 8 core 1.6GHz CPU to a E5-2658 v2 10 core 2.4GHz processor (finding one on eBay for $120 convinced me) and WOW... Of course I still have my cameras somewhat on lower settings, but I was surprised that it cut my CPU usage...

    Another Blue Iris CPU post... opinion

    I had asked Ken awhile ago his thoughts on using CUDA or intel for acceleration and he just replied now... this is part of his answer "My personal experience with Nvidia has been excellent ... there are only very limited support instances. Intel decoding on the other hand seems problematic ...

    Another Blue Iris CPU post... opinion

    Yes you read that right.... 1.6GHz.. def blame some of my issues on that =) Anyways, i9-9900k was my first choice. I'd assume my only hope to get that to work well with so many cameras would be to switch all my cameras back to H264 and invest a little more in storage eh? It's the way I'd...

    Another Blue Iris CPU post... opinion

    I know this is an over talked subject but wouldn't mind a quick opinion. I have a.. well.. the system listed in my signature and I really need to upgrade the CPU... my CPU.. although a 8core/16thread cpu is some cheap Chinese server version or something and is only clocked at 1.6GHZ. I'm...

    Blue Iris Update Helper (BiUpdateHelper)

    I was using the helper tool to compare my system as I'm looking to upgrade, and it took me a second to figure out the MP/s goes off the "max frame rate" setting. For awhile I thought maybe my system went crazy since cameras were showing as high as 39fps when only set to 8fps lol not sure how BI...
