    how to assign ipv6 address to blue iris remote connection?

    I've been having some wonky issues on the remote end lately. I got in and I looked up what'smyip. It shows a new long IPV6 address and says no ipv4 address available, or something like that. Do we need to adjust our remote login wlan settings for this somehow? And if so, how.

    Can I delete all remote blue iris clips from mobile app?

    Thanks for all the tips. I'll take some time to digest them. Do you really think the external drive is causing all the problems? I have an external fireproof IOS drive and really want to avoid relying on extra internal SATA drives. I have heating and corruption issues in the past (It's a fairly...

    Can I delete all remote blue iris clips from mobile app?

    No dedicated VPN. Used TeamViewer for years, but they've kicked me out by some algo and I've had numerous problems all the time with forced upgrades anyways. I just want to get off that dependency. I doubt it is pro. I know I didn't set it up for that. I could look into that next time I look...

    Can I delete all remote blue iris clips from mobile app?

    Which screen shots? I didn't see any specific requests outside of storage tab I posted. edit. I saw them. I'll have to go back and snapshot. I don't think any error messages will help as I'm not currently experiencing issues on local machine. I'll post anyways. Thanks. To clarify, by USB drive...

    Can I delete all remote blue iris clips from mobile app?

    What do you want to see, specifically? I can post. Again, I'm not showing remote machine with problems, only my more local setup. But, I don't think there's much difference in the way I set them up. One point I should add, is I don't store them on main local OS storage (per rec), but a...

    Can I delete all remote blue iris clips from mobile app?

    Thanks all, sorry for the delay. BI ver 5.0. My Idea is I have a 4TB external drive, and at some threshold like 3TB it deletes the drive completely and starts re-recording (I've tried limit option for this and delete all). But, I still seem to have the system freeze and I have to go through...

    Can I delete all remote blue iris clips from mobile app?

    A problem I run into a lot is that the remote drive will fill and instead of deleting data and starting from a clean storage drive (even though I set that up), the system freezes and I have to find a way to manually clear the drive. This happens even if I have an external drive allocated and...

    Blue Iris 5 frequently dropping dahua cameras

    My area has been raining and cold lately. I thought of that as a possibility, but as I said, they worked previously rock solid for years. How's the weather where you are at? Are any of your cameras different brands, or all the same? Also, as I mentioned, my watchdog timers were not set at all...

    Blue Iris 5 frequently dropping dahua cameras

    Yes, I can talk to the cameras or display directly without BI. I wouldn't think it's wires, or for that matter even the switch(well, maybe). All 4 dahu cameras dropout simultaneously. The two new cameras are active while this occurs and do not dropout. There's something about the new types of...

    Blue Iris 5 frequently dropping dahua cameras

    I had a setup that was mostly rock solid (for years) with 4 dahua cams and a 4 port netgear switch. I wanted to upgrade to more cameras, but my original seller no longer provides those models. I bought some JideTech cams from amazon, and they work fine. I also had to upgrade to BVtech 8 port...

    Questions regarding NVR setup (newbie that is confused)

    So you are planning, not actually connecting. No security worries there. If you can access the NVR though a monitor, you should at least familiarize yourself with all the menu settings of the monitor/cameras/networking settings first. It will be easier to find things, once you do connect...

    Questions regarding NVR setup (newbie that is confused)

    Have you tried connecting a computer monitor directly to the NVR (no internet/network connection) first? You should be able to setup/see the POE camera from the monitor NVR menu with nothing but a mouse. Also, do you have a bar code on top of the NVR to scan? A lot of the setup gets a lot...

    One camera's border keeps flashing yellow and it's not detecting motion

    FWIW. I just had the same problem after adjusting some settings. Flashing yellow/orange frame and no alerts processing. I also did gaussian and it got better. I think though, somehow it is being overwhelmed with alerts and gets in a repeating trigger mode that temporarily disables motion...

    NVR choppy video. How do you calculate ideal aggregate BandWidth streaming requirements?

    Used H.265 (Lorex/Dahua supports), no visual quality improvement (vs. advertised 2X compression). I had to cut FPS all the way to around 10-12 to get smooth, the 4K lorex cameras only advertise max 15fps @ full resolution, so it's down from there. Yeah VPN a whole different track. FYI Dahua...

    NVR choppy video. How do you calculate ideal aggregate BandWidth streaming requirements?

    @catcamstar, thanks, this is closer to what I was getting at. Substream is definitely an option, and a way to reduce choppiness. But it is equivalent to just cranking down all the resolution, fps, etc.. on live stream (at a loss of visual quality of course). They give both options to have both...

    NVR choppy video. How do you calculate ideal aggregate BandWidth streaming requirements?

    Ps I get that I can record at max res, etc... my issue is streaming and remote playback choppiness.

    NVR choppy video. How do you calculate ideal aggregate BandWidth streaming requirements?

    So, I’m observing live streaming on a location offsite from the nvr/cameras location. The choppiness is viewing the app remotely, not locally on the nvr site. My reasoning is that if the setup requires say 8Mx6 = 48M total or aggregate bandwidth ( unless multiplexing reduces that load a lot)...

    NVR choppy video. How do you calculate ideal aggregate BandWidth streaming requirements?

    Thanks for the reply, that's a pretty useful tool, although they don't show the exact calculations they use. Still not clear if it's down or upload requirement. I would guess the requirement is upload, as the host is transmitting video outwards. In which case, most ISP uploads of less than 20M...

    LOREX NR908 4k cameras choppy

    Hi, Thanks, but it's not the monitor... direct connection is clear. It's the remote viewing that is choppy.

    NVR choppy video. How do you calculate ideal aggregate BandWidth streaming requirements?

    Hi all, I was able to setup an NVR for someone remotely with 6 lorex 4k cameras and a NR908 (couldn't do blue iris server, AFAIK, as they have a mac desktop). This is post Lorex/Dahua purchase, so everything working with post software updates (lorex cloud, etc). Very clear static images, but...

    Blue Iris version 5

    Wow. Direct to disk and intel decoding dropped to 15% !!! Forgot even setting those originally. Cannot hear fan at all anymore (which is nice, since you don't want your machine screaming, I'm here!).

    Blue Iris version 5

    just updated to 5. My CPU jumped to almost 100% fan roaring. I never had any kind of leakage problem on 4, owned for years and several versions. Any discussion on this yet? Also, have periodic problem of google smtp not attaching images (had it with 4 also, but never fixed); alerts show smtp...

    Dahua nvr was a bad decision

    @mat200 I've used Blue Iris for years at home, and very used to using it. But at an offsite location, for space and power limitations, I had someone talk me into the NVR. I really regret it, as it is just not as user friendly, flexible, or useful, IMO at all. And I chose Dahua, because I love...

    Dahua nvr was a bad decision

    Venting, but wish I had gone the blue iris/pc/switch route. It is like comparing OpenOffice to excel. Hitting all kinds of limitations on the NVR, that I took for granted with blue iris. Among them 1) nvr very limited remote troubleshooting. With bi I can even look in the router and individual...

    What POE mode (A or B) does Dahua PoE NVR use?

    If it helps any I just went through a similar problem. If you build your own cables, on short lengths the color scheme is not critical, only straight pairings. But on longer lengths, like 250 ft plus, I got red power light, but could not find cameras. Once I went back and did standard coloring...

    can't get dahua NVR to attach smtp image

    For what it's worth, I finally got it to send a few images attached, no logical cause effect. maybe 1 or 2 out of a cluster of 100 or so each. Someone mentioned a way to filter gmails with attachments, but I only see a way to search for mails with attachments. It doesn't break out the...

    can't get dahua NVR to attach smtp image

    Recently purchased NVR4208-8p-4ks2 nvr along with 8 4M dahua domes. I have tried 100s of permutations of the NVR software, but for the life of me I can not get the image to be attached on the email alerts. I have read other forums and tried various things, e.g. 1) gmail, time warner ISP...
