    Is H.265 realistically possible?

    An i5, 8th gen or newer will work fine with this. Since it has six cores. I know my low end, 8th gen i5 has no issue with fifteen cameras at 15FPS. Ten 1500P 3MP, three 1500P 4MP, and two 720P 2MP. Heck even my old 3rd gen i5 works with this. My backup BI machine. But the CPU usage is very high...

    Blue Iris 4 to 5 Migration Guide

    I still have version 3 on both of my machines. I guess when I decide to update to BI5, I will also leave version 4 on. Sent from my Nexus 7(16GB)

    New build for 4K cameras. i9-9900K?

    Things are much faster when reading and writing the video from an SSD or NVMe drive. The videos populate almost instantly. While things are noticeable slower if I did that from a platter drive. Plus SSDs are so cheap now.

    New build for 4K cameras. i9-9900K?

    I've been using a 1TB Samsung EVO with BI for around five years now. I've had between twelve and fifteen cameras in use during that time. With most 1500P. I've only had around 100TB of data read and around 100TB of data written during that time. And the drive still has 80% of it's life left...

    Blue Iris 4 to 5 Migration Guide

    Wow!! Thanks for all the info in this thread. I think I will wait awhile before paying for the upgrade to BI5, for my two BI machines.

    Anyone running 8th gen Intel without memory leak problems in Blue Iris?

    My core i5 3rd gen can handle 15 cameras with most at 1500p. But there are plenty of times the CPU gets pegged at 100%. Both the 8th gen core i3 and the third gen Core i5 uses four CPU cores. I switched to an 8th gen core i5 last year which has six cores. Now my CPU usage is down to around 30%...

    Anyone running 8th gen Intel without memory leak problems in Blue Iris?

    Yes. Ive had no issues on my 8th gen core i5. My BI machine runs 24/7 without any memory ssues. With my fifteen cameras. Sent from my Nexus 7(16GB) using Tapatalk

    C Drive Failure - Starting Over

    That's why it's a good idea to backup things periodically. I use MS One Drive since it gives me 1TB of space. So I store important files, pictures, videos etc. there in case I have any issues with any of my PCs. Plus I'm able to access the content from any of my PCs, tablets, phone etc..

    Correct firmware upgrade for my cameras

    Yes. I started using Hikvision cameras around four years ago. I've never updated the firmware and I've also never had any issues with them.

    Unable to update?

    Did something change? Because I was able to update both of my Blue Iris PCs using the update button in the BI settings. Or is that only because I had not updated them in awhile? Sent from my Nexus 7(16GB) using Tapatalk

    BI optimization help - i7-6770HQ, 6 cams, 15MP, 150MP/s

    I use direct to disc with triggers. It still makes a difference in the two setups I have with BI. My current one with an 8th gen core i5. And my backup, which was my previous setup, with a 3rd gen core i5. Sent from my Galaxy S8 using Tapatalk

    Unable to update?

    I guess I'll need to do this for now. And also do it with my backup BI machine. Then when version 5 comes out, I'll purchase the extended service plan for both my primary and secondary BI license. So I can upgrade to the new version.

    BI optimization help - i7-6770HQ, 6 cams, 15MP, 150MP/s

    Are you using Direct to Disc recording? I'm running three 4MP Hikvisions(1500P), nine 3MP Hikvisions(1500P), and three 720P HooToo Cameras. All use 15fps. And Direct to Disc recording. The bitrate to the PC from all the cameras is typically around 60 to 70Mb/s. And on a core i5 8400 Intel, My...

    Anyone running 8th gen Intel without memory leak problems in Blue Iris?

    Seems odd that I don't have these issues from my lower 8th gen core i5 8400 with a base clock rate of only 2.8Ghz. Or is it also because I am using an NVMe drive and a couple of SSDs for most of my BI storage? 1.6TB of stroage from those and then a 2TB platter drive for long term storage. With...

    Anyone running 8th gen Intel without memory leak problems in Blue Iris?

    I checked and I do have the framerate set low from the actual BI program. So based on what you said then that must be the reason. Sent from my Tab S 10.5 using Tapatalk

    Anyone running 8th gen Intel without memory leak problems in Blue Iris?

    I just tried it from my cell phone. After opening the BI program on my PC using Team Viewer, my CPU usage went up four percent to 27% while showing my fourteen cameras in the BI program. Normally I am running BI as service. Sent from my Galaxy S8 using Tapatalk

    Anyone running 8th gen Intel without memory leak problems in Blue Iris?

    Using team viewer should not increase the CPU usage much. At least I know it doesnt with my BI machine. It only adds a few percent to the CPU usage in my setup. Sent from my Galaxy S8 using Tapatalk

    Anyone running 8th gen Intel without memory leak problems in Blue Iris?

    I'm running a core i5 8400 with fourteen cameras. Three 4mp, nine 3mp, and two 2mp. Also running at 15fps. My i5 8400 only has around a 20 to 35% cpu usage according to the BI app.. And also around 2.87 GB of memory use. The i5 8600k is more powerful than my cpu. I would think you would have...

    h264 chrome streaming in BI3

    I'm having no issues in Chrome. I set the UI3 for the 2160P resolution option so all the cameras can stream in their native resolution. I use twelve 1500P cameras and two 720P cameras.

    curious about your BI setups

    I've always run mine headless. It just sits on a wire shelf out of the way. I use either Team Viewer or Google Remote Desktop to access them remotely. Plus both of those programs are free. So I can view the BI machine from another PC, tablet, or cell phone if I need to. And with a PC it's looks...

    Will this desktop suffice for Blue Iris (BI)

    You can also use Macrium Reflect free. It's great for cloning and is free. I used it recently to clone my three new dell systems with 8th Gen core i5 CPUs. One is being used for my new BI machine. And this past weekend I used it clone my five old PCs. So I could put smaller SSDs or platter...

    Recommend Server off Ebay to run Blue Iris and Plex media server in seperate VM's?

    I just configured my core i5 8400 with Blue Iris. Wow!! this is much, much better than my gen 3 core i5. The CPU usage percentage is around half of the old one. And it's using around 15 watts less right now. 40 watts vs. 55 watts. I

    Will this run BI

    Yes that CPU is rated for 130 watts. While a newer cpu like a core i5 8400 is rated at 65 watts and is genrally more powerful too.

    New PC for BI recommendation

    The Acer only has 4GB of memory. Plus it comes with 16GB of Optane storage. Which is a waste if you are going to install an SSD. Plus Optane storage is slow and expensive compared to an M2 NVMe drive. I got a cheaper M2 NVME 250GB drive for my new BI PC. And it is two to three times as fast as...

    Recommend Server off Ebay to run Blue Iris and Plex media server in seperate VM's?

    Just keep the PLEX and BI server separate. It certainly makes thing simpler. I'm in the process of upgrading my old Gen 3 Core i5 PCs to 8th Gen Core i5 PCs. I am keeping my BI machine by itself with the 8th Gen Core i5. And am setting up a dedicated Plex server with another 8th Gen Core i5...

    Hard drive strategy

    I just run my thirteen cameras to a 1TB SSD. And then I have a secondary 500GB SSD that the files get pushed to when the 1TB gets full. This has worked very well for the last five years with my third gen core i5 BI machine. I'm setting up a new machine with an 8th gen core i5. But this one will...

    Anyone running 8th gen Intel without memory leak problems in Blue Iris?

    Wow!! I saw this thread and got a little scared. This week I decided to upgrade my 3rd gen core i5 machine to an 8th gen core i5 8400. But I guess I picked the right time since the fix came in a few weeks ago. I picked up an open box Dell 3670 for $460 with 12GB of memory. And then I got a...

    Blue Iris UI3

    Thanks. That's what I just found a a minute ago. That the it put the files in sub directory instead of a level up. So now it is working. Thanks.
