    No access through iOS app over cellular after upgrade to v5

    Thanks. Cellular data is on (globally) and also for the app. I have no issue with VPN connection (over WIFI or cellular). When connected through VPN over cellular, I can get to the BI web interface. But the mobile app will not connect unless on WIFI. I had no issues with this until I...

    No access through iOS app over cellular after upgrade to v5

    When v4 was installed, I could access my BI server from the BI iOS app in the following ways: 1) While on home network, and iPhone is connected to home LAN, I connect to BI server - No issues 2) While away from home, and connected to WIFI (i.e. in a hotel while on travel), I turn on VPN...

    Blue Iris - video blur issue

    Thanks Fenderman!!! That did the trick. I rolled the video driver way back to version 21.20.16.4664. All seems to be working again- no trailing predator effect.

    Rolling back the video driver did not help.

    Blue Iris - video blur issue

    After performing tests for several days, I can comfortably say this is an issue with the hardware accelerated decode setting in Blue Iris. Hardware accelerated decode (restart): Intel.... Blurring/Trailing/Predator effect is present. Hardware accelerated decode (restart): No...

    Blue Iris - video blur issue

    I’m pretty sure this is a problem with Blue Iris hardware acceleration. Been running for a few days with no hw acceleration and no issues. Will turn it back on and let it run. Perhaps something broke during OS update.

    Blue Iris - video blur issue

    Good idea- can PSS and Blue Iris run on the same server simultaneously without conflict?

    Blue Iris - video blur issue

    No issues showing up with pingtracer. Turning off hardware acceleration in Blue Iris to see if this makes a difference.

    Blue Iris - video blur issue

    So once today when I walked out the front door, the motion is captured on two cameras, and they both blurred. But I've walked out the front door several times today, and it only happened once. Where does one set DNR? On the Camera-> Settings -> 3D NR, and the "Grade" slider? Currently set at...

    Blue Iris - video blur issue

    Haven't tried the video driver, but rebooted yesterday morning. Ran for about 30 hours without any trails. I got one about 1/2 hour ago. But nothing since... So intermittent.

    Thats just it- 90% of the time video is flawless. Camera settings havent been changed since initial confuguration.

    Blue Iris - video blur issue

    Only occurs every once in awhile. Using cat5e solid- i make my own. Rebooting cameras didnt help this time. I have been noticing some networking issues lately on other devices. Will keep investigating.

    Blue Iris - video blur issue

    I take that back- Even a restart of Blue Iris is not correcting the problem. I will now be rebooting the cameras to see if it corrects things. Cameras are Dahau DH-IPC-HDW2231R-ZS. Settings in Blue Iris for one of the cameras: Max Rate 400000 [25.00 fps] Hardware accelerated decode: Default...

    Blue Iris - video blur issue

    Every once in a while, my alert clips show motion as blurred, i.e. if someone walks by a camera they are sharp, then there is a trail of blur. When this happens, a restart of Blue Iris seems to fix things. Any suggestions on what could be causing this?

    Hitting a Rest API on ISY via Web Alert in Blue IRIS

    Do you turn off camera time overlay?

    Its 2018. Font libraries are abundant, and memory is cheap (although more expensive in the last 24 months). I don't think asking for a 2018 font on a 1080p image is really a huge ask! That said, I am EXTREMELY pleased with Blue Iris and the image quality on the DW2231R-ZS!!!

    Do you turn off camera time overlay?

    I didn't see that setting is on my Dahuas. While the overlay is functional and serves its purpose, it is clunky looking. At least to make make it look better than Atari 2600 font. :)

    Hitting a Rest API on ISY via Web Alert in Blue IRIS

    Digging up an old thread as I am having a similar issue. Trying to configure a pop-up window on my HTPC (Kodi) if a Blue Iris alert is received. I have the receiving side completed (spent a bunch of time learning python today). Short of writing a full script on the Blue Iris side, I thought...

    Do you turn off camera time overlay?

    Was looking at this today and realized how nice the Blue Iris camera names and time overlays look. Yet the overlays generated from the cameras look like VCR quality from the 80s. Not what I expected from hardware of this resolution.

    Sweet! LTS is releasing an ONVIF compatible doorbell with SD card slot and 940nm IR

    Just finished up reading all 45 pages, and am looking for some guidance/clarification. I am currently running Blue Iris, with only one camera installed (just starting out). My next space to add a camera to is my front door alcove. The doorbell is on the side wall of the alcove (perpendicular...

    Some specific questions on OpenVPN setup

    That-a-way, throw some salt on the wound!!! Just kidding. I appreciate you trying to help. I thought about buying a new router out of frustration, but just kept forging forth..... Even today, I found another thing that doesn't work as advertised. At the end of the day, it was a learning...
