    Be sure to choose 4k in the YT player.
    Factory default settings, except time and channel name.
    Recorded and exported from Blue Iris.

    Hmmmm. I really want to see the night time video from this puppy. 1/1.8 sounds promising. I am a little surprised it need 2 amps (24 watts) though, at least according to the label.

    I will be interested in this myself. Particularly the night recordings. I am sure the daytime video will be quite good.

    Specs say <14.3 watts.
    Label I believe says .2 amps. So who knows.

    .2 amps is a little more reasonable. My tired old eyes couldn't resolve the decimal place, Time for 4K glasses I guess.

    Looking over all the specs, I couldn't see if this is Auto Focus (or Zoom). I did see one entry where "Focus Control - Fixed" was listed. Is this auto focus or must it be manually focused after adjustment? Thanks.

    Looking forward to this one Looney. Are the IR LEDs outside the rectangular lens opening? 2 on top and 2 on bottom?

    @awsum140 as a quick POE draw comparison, both of mine pull between 4.7w and 5.8w on average in use. HTH

    Nope, fired right up in BI.
    In BI, set the ip address, enter the user name and password you set in the camera, then click find/inspect. That's it.
    Make sure you gave the cam a unique IP address in the cam.

    Thanks.....the camera works fine so it must be something down stream. I was wondering if there was any special blue Iris settings but apparently there is not...thanks

    I got it working with the proper fps by limiting decoding
