Bonjour, ce n'est pas un problème d'affichage, c'est un problème de conversion empirique/métrique. Les données sont bien récupérées en empirique mais si je veux les afficher en métrique, j'ai le message "Error connecting to wunderground. Check your internet connection / station ID"
Merci d'avance pour votre aide

Hi, this is not a display problem, it is an empirical / metric conversion problem. The data is recovered empirically but if I want to display them in metric, I have the message "Error connecting to wunderground.Check your internet connection / station ID" Thank you in advance for your help

My answer:
Thank you, this issue has been reported and is being worked on.

I have lost my GUI altogether. BIT is running. When I click on the icon in the toolbar, it says BIT is running in the systems tray, but there is no icon in the systems tray for BIT. The GUI would open before the last update, but none of the windows would open - like log, or settings, just the main GUI. Now I have it running, but no way of looking or adjusting settings. I have been a BIT user for years, so the environment is not new (only continued irritating updates to Win 10). I tried removing and reinstalling for the prior issues with no change.

Thanks for reporting this, I will look into it. Did you try ctrl-alt-del, forcing stop of BIT then re-launching it? Not a solution, but should at least fix it in this case while I look into it.

Well, I am a bit chagrined - it is now working fine. Last night I couldn't do a thing with it so I wrote first this this morning. Now it is working perfectly, even opening those windows like the log seems to be perfect. I guess writing you was the magic touch. I will keep an eye on it to see if it reoccurs.

How do I download BIT? Every link on this page takes me to the purchase Blue Iris page.





I'm very happy to introduce Blue Iris Tools to everyone. Blue Iris Tools was created to act as a companion to Blue Iris and has a bunch of features built in to help maximize your Blue Iris experience.

Some of the core features of Blue Iris Tools are:
  • Weather Overlays
    • Easily add the local weather to your camera feeds,
    • Easily create Macros for Blue Iris right from BI Tools,
    • Ability to assign all weather conditions to 1 Macro!
    • Retrieve & overlay weather from multiple locations
  • Watchdog
    • If Blue Iris crashes or closes, BI Tools will re-open it
    • Monitor Blue Iris (whether running 'normal' or as a service)
    • Monitor Blue Iris' web server. If BIT cannot connect, activate alerts
    • CPU monitor + CPU Overlay
    • BI folders monitor
    • IP Address monitor (notify if change)
    • Notifications - Get notified if BI crashes via e-mail, push notifications via Pushover (download BIT icon here), by playing a sound, pinging / launching a URL.
  • Web Server File Management
    • Insert Google Analytics into web server files easily,
    • Search & Replace in web server files - manually or automatically
  • Language
    • Create and import custom language phrases and definitions. Language files are available in the 2nd post of this thread. If you created your own, please share it!
  • DDNS Updater & IP Management
    • Automatically update DDNS providers when your IP address changes
  • Log
    • Log all BIT related actions (BIT open / close, etc.)
    • Watchdog (Anytime the Watchdog is triggered - if BI is closed, etc.)
    • Weather Updates (anytime the weather is updated)
    • DDNS Updater (when your IP changes, etc.)
    • CPU Usage (log CPU usage during alerts, etc.)
    • Overlay IP address on camera
  • BI Update Manager
    • Keep previous versions of Blue Iris
    • Easily restore previous BI versions
  • BIT Cloud (New in 1.2.x!)
    • BIT Cloud Remote - Connect to BIT from another remote BIT to view / manage settings and control BIT / BI, etc.
    • BIT Cloud Web Server - A personal website for you to connect to from any browser on any device to check your BIT / BI, including stats, weather, log, cpu, settings, etc.
    • BIT Cloud Watchdog - Remotely monitor a BI or BIT install - with watchdog alerts.

BI Tools uses WUnderground to gather the weather. You can find your nearest station here. I plan on adding more weather providers in the future.

Here are some screenshots of Blue Iris Tools.

Here are a few examples of the weather on your video feeds. You can select which conditions to show, what units to display and more.

I have put together athread to act as a 'help file' or a place that provides details and explanations on how to use the software, what each feature and setting does, etc. If you cannot find the answers you are looking for in the help file then you may ask for support in this thread.

A big thanks to the beta team for helping get BIT where it is! Blue Iris Tools was built by me and is offered for free to everyone. I ask that you don't redistribute the software, rather direct people here to download it. I am not a programmer by trade, I just wanted to put together this software to help out the Blue Iris community. I expect bugs to crop up throughout the early releases but I plan on building and maintaining BI Tools long term, so if you do find bugs or have issues don't worry, whatever it is I will take care of. Just let me know. Please don't hesitate to leave your suggestions or feedback as well. I want to build and expand BI Tools as much as possible and have a lot of really good ideas that will make their way into future releases.

I plan on updating this thread when I release updates and will use it as a centralized location to discuss BI Tools. Please visit this thread for the help file and see the 2nd post in this thread for language files.

Read the ENTIRE first post. At the very bottom are links to BIT, a BIT update if you already have it installed and an error log information file. It's right there, behind the milk! Just look, really look and not scan a page.

IDK, firewall maybe?

The cloud feature is already there. Download the latest. "My BIT Cloud" is coming in 2019 :D

The BIT link I get is for 1.1.2, not the latest. I can't figure out ANY way to download the latest. If I download, 1.1.2 will it update to the latest??

Really frustrating.

I attached a screenshot.

Did you try BIT's "Help" as shown below? It will take you to the latest help online, here. Scroll down to "Options", "Check for Update."

It's not difficult to update to the latest version once installed. I didnt need help to figure that out, but downloading the old version and not the latest via this thread is not clear. The first post seems to indicate you can download and install the latest version. I'd much rather have done that than install something old.

I'm all set now, but that first post is confusing and frustrating.
