    So, it's best to not depend on the current version for Reg backups in V5, I assume.

    Registry backups are still 100% fine, and done far better than Blue Iris's own registry backups in my opinion. Those .reg files are huuuge due to Blue Iris's extremely inefficient encoding of motion zones. My tool compresses 30+ MB reg files down to a couple KB using 7zip.

    When you do an update is their a way that it would be possible to identify a camera in the detailed performance data? I would imagine, like myself, that a lot of us have multiples the same types of cameras so that when looking at the camera data it's hard to identify the settings of an individual camera.

    @Tinbum Can you think of something to add to the camera data for identification purposes that would still preserve the complete anonymity that there currently is?

    on the stat page for the CPU usage, can you add the windows version, BI version and the GPU utilization . I like the stats it is a good indicator of what CPU to use, also how well a configuration is compared to others.

    I would really like it if it was automatically installed with BI so there was more data points. Maybe with an OPT OUT.

    That's the hard part!! Would people object to the camera short name do you think?
