Hi all I need your help here how can I Convert 6GB .BVR to MP4?

Sooy but I am learning now I need to have small files, so I change the config to have 1GB Files.

That is not where you limit the file size, you inadvertently limited the size of the new folder to 1 GB, and since it set to delete you only have a few minutes of recorded video. Set it back to 95% you're available free space. the file size limit is set in the record tab of each camera

You setting are completely messed up.

Use the correct folder names for your folders, do not change the names, just the drive letters.
c:\BlueIris\db
C:\BlueIris\New
c:\BlueIris\Stored
c:\BlueIris\Alerts

You set the total files size for the folder in the system options.

You set the controlling files size for a camera in the camera configurations

If New and Stored are in the same drive then I’d personally not bother moving to Stored.

You have also set Stored to move to Stored?

Also interested in why you need to convert the clips to MP4

Look under "Clip folders" in help section. It explains it very well and you will want to redo all your settings again.

I do not use clip age. I just use space. The allocated space fills up then get deleted as needed.

General space advice, allocate only 95% of a large drive space tp BI. Never allocate 100% of a drive to BI.

I will change my settings to move to my NAS.

My neighbor was robbed, so I will provide the video for him.

So you just need to export the clips of interest not set it up to do it all the time?

I Have 6 hours video = around 6GB, I try to convert this big files did not work.
Files bigger than 4GB can be an issue with some software (not sure about BI).
If the BI export function does not work with your large .bvr file, one other thing I can think of is to do a playback from within BI, and use another screen video recorder program to record the sections you want and save as .mp4

I also hear that VLC with some mods can playback video in a .bvr file.

Surely all 6gb cant be of interest so you just need to select start and end for each fragment you want and export?

Has anyone here successfully exported video (even a portion) from a 6GB (or larger) .bvr file to .mp4? Was that in BI 4 or 5?
My individual .bvr files are much smaller.
