    CPU stats for a dedicated Blue Iris server?

    Hi everyone, I'm working on building a dedicated blue iris server. I'm wondering what kind of a cpu I need. I currently have 4 feeds and may add 2 more in the future. I plan to continually record from all feeds (for a total of 6 camera feeds). I've been looking at the 10th gen intel core...

    Blue Iris crashes when replaying from timeline (Windows 10)

    This is an odd one, yesterday I added a tenth camera to Blue Iris. Now when trying to playback using the 'replay' button next to the timeline or double clicking the actual timeline, Blue Iris simply crashes in Windows 10. I can double click and play 'alerts', can also playback 'all clips'...

    The Area of Interest's "Edit..." button is grayed out for some cameras

    Does anyone know why this happens? I can't see any rhyme nor reason for why it's grayed out for some cameras but not others. I wanted to try the feature, but it's grayed out on the camera I want. About half of them have it and the other half don't. vs.

    Various arguments in favour of and against running DeepStack on a separate host

    Hi there! I haven't really seen any discussion about the pros and cons of running DeepStack locally (same host as BI runs at) vs running it on a different host in the LAN. Currently I'm running DeepStack locally but I'm tempted to set it up on a different host as a Docker image. The reason is...

    I've been tearing my hair out trying to use Hikvision events to start Blue Iris ( x64) recording but have had no success. I have the latest V5.5.160 build 210108 firmware working fine so I'm able to trigger the LED to come on from line crossing fine for instance so I know that is...

    Hi all. Brand new to Blue Iris, coming over from Geovision VMS. We are in love with the software, but we're trying to see about securing it with AD credentials.
