    Expert Recommendations for Live Streaming Camera

    Over a long period I have gotten really good advice on these forums. I have a coworker that happens to have a nice "river" view, and he wants to stream it (his thinking is ofc youtube), but he doesn't really want a dedicated computer setup purely for that purpose (he has one today for the Dahua...

    IPC-HUM8230P-E1 - does anyone know the substream URL ?

    Trying to set this particular camera up for substreams in Blue Iris v5. However, even though the main stream works (/cam/realmonitor?channel=1&subtype=0), nothing appears to work for substreams even though this camera UI shows there should be two of them. I have tried...

    Finally Completed - New EPYC build & Limit Test - (Extremely Unnecessary Builds)

    Before the comments flood in, this build was done as a project/for-science build. This is not an endorsement of this type of build for a reasonable person, or (really) anyone tbh. This is simply a shameless attempt to try and get the IPCT contributor badge ;) Once a year I get bonus "mad money"...

    Amazon and Newegg have 12TB WD Elements for $199 today (4/24/2020)

    Just mentioning in case anyone missed the prior sales on 4TB or 8/10TB. Some of the lower capacity are now confirmed to be SMR drives (On WD Red NAS Drives - Western Digital Corporate Blog), which will have lower write performance (who knows if it will still work for surveillance maybe if you...

    Anyway to simulate more Camera load?

    I am planning to update my aging Blue Iris setup soon, but just curious if there is an easy way to simulate higher camera load before I start buying more cameras? I know I could push the frame rates up to the camera max (25 or 30 on most mine), but not sure if the camera hardware can handle...

    Can we gather some Memory Benchmarks?

    All. Every since @bp2008 did a test on where the limits were for his Blue Iris machine running an AMD 3950x (thread here: Ryzen 3950x for Blue Iris), I have been thinking that just as important as cores/threads to determine "maximum capacity" of a Blue Iris VMS PC there might be a memory impact...

    Recommendation for Office Cam for monitoring a lobby (not security) - simple solution

    Wanted to see if anyone had a simple idea to solve a problem at my wife's office. They have an entry lobby, where a receptionist used to sit to greet people that came in. The remaining offices are down a long hallway with no direct view of the entry area just due to angles. Due to personnel...

    Stumbled upon this On Quora - SR71 Camera System - Frank Murray Pilot

    Does any admin know how to make it open directly in youtube as it won't allow embedded players. Highlights that made my jaw drop. Funny old guy, that was a pilot on it. In 1960, this camera system was capable of shooting hirez at cruise speed of 3300 ft/s on SR flying at 85,000 ft altitude...

    Another Ring Success Story

    She installed a Ring camera in her children’s room for ‘peace of mind.’ A hacker accessed it and harassed her 8-year-old daughter. Ring says probably a credential stuffing attack, nevermind some strange dude is talking to your daughter and can SEE INTO YOUR DAUGHTERS ROOM!

    Title says it. I happen to have a Home8 system that was picked up (not by me!) and I wanted to play around to see if it can be connected to Blue Iris system?

    Question Re: Hikvision DS-2CD6412FWD-L30-28

    Ok so I might have rushed to order a camera I wanted small enough to mount to a birdhouse without doing enough research. I haven't ordered Hikvision before or from this vendor. I ordered: Hikvision DS-2CD6412FWD-L30-28 and I received just the 25 foot cable, a barrel-style camera lens and a...

    I have setup my first outdoor camera, unfortunately the motivator to get them out of the box and hang them was several cars were broken into in this neighborhood, my wife's car window was broken out so they could rummage through the glovebox and steal an empty "Prada knockoff" purse from...

    Newbie - Please start me off with Camera/FoV Recommendations please

    ok, I posted this in New users Forum, and it either got missed probably due to how active the forum is. I PM'd milkisbad once, but I'm thinking I'll have better luck if I have a CLUE what I need to start to provide coverage. I'm sure he's swamped based on the number of "posting here so I can...
