    Trying to open BI recordings from harddrive, says i need to run as admin

    thank you, that did fix it. I wasn't even aware they are being recorded as .bvr. If I ever want to move the video files to another PC or watch them on a PC without blue iris installed, wouldn't I want them being recorded as .mpgs or .avis. something more universal? is there an advantage to...

    Have some dahlia cameras and have them loaded into blue iris. Forgot what I changed them to though for when I want to access thru the browser. How would I find out? I have the second NIC and I have them on that I know

    Great quality one minute, next minute everything dims with shadows appearing

    I attached 2 photos just a minute or 2 apart. Any 1 know why there is such a large difference between the two. I changed no settings. one minute it is picking up all the shadows and the next they completely go away. the shadows are still present when I physically look at the pool area. the...

    Alert push notifications - shows only live feed, not triggered motion

    Is there a way to set it up so that when a push notification comes to my phone from a triggered alert, and then when I swipe to open it, it shows me the motion that triggered it? right now it just takes me to a live feed of the camera and I cant even figure out how to go back and view the...

    Solved - You have to go into Settings --->System --> General --> Date/time and change format in there

    Yeah I’m using the same exact number 192.168.xxx.xxx:XX for both wan and lan. I wonder why it would be working for you that way and not me then Edit - sorry. Not for openvpn. For the blue iris mobile app

    Okay solved this. I guess I was misunderstanding before. I had the lan and wan ip addresses matching what blue iris web server tab said. But once I connected via the OpenVPN I needed to change the WAN to match the LAN number, not what blue iris web server tab still said. Once I did that I was...

    it takes me to a log in screen. which apparently logs me into some blue iris web interface after I type in the UN and pw. but my goal is to use the app. what does this mean that I can log in here via web browser but not the app

    yes that's how mine looks for both WAn and LAN. the ipaddress and port 81 match what it shows in blue iris on the desktop. I can connect to it just fine when on wifi. but when I turn wifi off and OpenVPN on I cannot connect to the blue iris mobile app anymore

    I just did this port checker Open Port Checker | IP Cam Talk and it says port 81 is closed. which is the port that is listed for the LAN and WAN in blue iris. does this need to be opened? and how?

    okay thanks. So my router currently shows that the vpn username I setup is connected. does any 1 know why I wouldn't be able to connect with the blue iris mobile app if that's working? does it have something to do with opening ports or port forwarding? I uploaded a picture of this remote...

    yes the WAN and LAN in the blue iris app are the same as shown in the blue iris desktop program under settings --> web server. These numbers allowed me to connect when I was on the wifi. but when I turn wifi off I can no longer connect via the blue iris app even when this OpenVPN program is...

    yes changed the port to 1194. loaded the new file and connected to OpenVPN. I typed into the browser my cameras ip which is 192.168.40.200. nothing comes up. but when I do 192.168.1.1 it brings me to my router log in. I changed the ip address and I guess the subnet of all my cameras on the...

    okay so I changed the port according to that link and now Im connected! but when I try to connect to blue iris it wont let me connect unless wifi is turned on. it also doesn't let me open safari and type in the ip of my camera to get into the camera gui.

    i is it not safe to use the default one? I typed a random one like 4236. and its not letting me connect in OpenVPN after I imported the file. im wondering if that's not how it works just using random digits lol

    following that guide right now. just stopping at the part where the default port is 1194. the OP in the link blacked his out so im assuming I should change it to some random combo of 4 digits for security?

    ah yes I wasn't connected to wifi. so that worked when on wifi. but the main thing is being able to view the cameras when not at home on the wifi so to do that I ned to setup the vpn I guess. which I have no idea how lol
