    A customer had bought a bunch of wansview w2 and w3 cameras new in box for cheap. I have installed several on ethernet connection and they work fine on blue iris at their location. I bought the extras for my house. I can view them with android ip cam viewer basic app with no problem. I can inspect the address in blue iris and the onvif info fills right in. The cams will produce no picture in blue iris and only 1.3 fps, around 250kbs. They are 720p cameras. They work very well on another blue iris system but not on mine. I've tried every setting change I can think of.

    This is why you don't buy cheap Chinese crap cameras....
    Make sure its not an onvif authentication issue.

    Got it. Turned hardware accelerated decode to "no" and got video. Not sure why these set to "default" as all my other cams are set to "no". Customers blue iris install must have been defaulting to "no" as well

    Yes I am well aware that they are garbage cameras. When your good customer says hey I bought these from a neighbor, install them for me you do it especially when its a my way or the highway customer. And at $10 for the box of leftovers, I will use them even if for non critical stuff.

    I had tried turning off onvif authentication in the camera, but no luck. Not sure what caused my install to pick different settings than customers as they are both 4.8.5.3. Oh well, hey thanks for responding and throwing ideas out there I was scratchin my head there for a bit.
