So I have a dumb question, when I export a video with overlays the current weather info is shown. Not the weather info for the time and date of the export. Is that how this is supposed to work? I thought it would be like the time stamp overlay, where it shows the time from when the video was recorded.
That was the behavior I experienced. It records the time stamp at the time of the export, not at the time it was recorded. I’m direct to disk on everything now so I rely on my cameras for time stamps, except for my LPR cameras as ALPR likes to try to read the time as a plate. Would be nice if it could overlay the video time stamp at export time!

To be clear it is only the weather overlay that exports with the current info vs the the info at the time of the recording.

If you see this video export the timestamp overlay gets exported correctly. But the weather info is from the time of the export not of the recording. Does that sound right? Just double checking.

I don't think it shows up when you play it back in Blue Iris. You have to choose the option to include the overlay when you export it. I think in the Blue Iris mobile app it shows on playback.

Yes it seems so. I never noticed it during playback until I saw your video but understand it is an export.

This is correct.

Would it be possible to add a memory watchdog that would restart BI (service) if the allocated memory exceeds a limit?
It happened to me several times that BI service leaked and it killed other applications on the server.
