Since I'm not accessing opengl directly (doing it through a game engine) I don't have much control over the opengl version, or really any idea why a Java update alone would have broken it. I did a little googling and found no indication of a problem with Java 8u131 and this game engine.

Blue Iris version 4.5.6.0 / 4.5.6.1 has a broken web server. If you have automatic updates turned on in Blue Iris, I suggest you turn it off so that new bugs don't take you completely by surprise.

You can downgrade to the last working version using a link I posted here:
4.5.6 - May 17, 2017

Hey, loving this program, I was curious, is there any way to cycle cameras automatically. I've poked every button I can think of and can't find an option or key to enable this functionality.

Yeah, look up a couple of posts at the screenshot and make sure the "All cameras" group has the box checked for "Enable camera auto-cycle stream". Then you should see the All cameras cycle as an option in the dropdown at the top of UI2.

Ah, you made ui2 as well? I'm talking just about the java app, as I'm looking to run a modified netbook to monitor the cameras, so I figured using the java app instead of the web page would provide less screen clutter.

Oh, I'm sorry. Didn't pay enough attention to which thread this was.

The java app won't do an auto cycle. But UI2 will, and you can just full-screen the browser and drag the clip list closed (or press tilde key) to hide the rest of the UI. Then you have the full screen space dedicated to the video.

Ah, alright, good to know, I'll have to see how this netbook handles the task.

I really enjoy this cool BlueIrisViewer Java app!

I have my Blue Iris server running on dedicated hardware and that PC is connected to the same screen as my normal PC and the screen is a BENQ BL3200PT with 2560x1600 resolution. I have 4 different computers connected to this awesome screen and I use Synergy app as a software keyboard/mouse switcher.

I normally do not switch over to the surveillance server so I use the BlueIris Java app as a monitoring tool and keep it as a very small window on my desktop showing all my 6 HD cameras (5 x AXIS P3346-VE and 1 x Vivotek FD9381-EHTV [AWESOME camera!]).

However, when I try to minimize the window and toggle to borderless window I am not able to press close with the mouse since the window is now small and the menu page for these settings is bigger than the window. And since it is not possible to either move with tab to the close button or to press something like ENTER or CTRL+ENTER to confirm settings and save I am not able to switch to borderless window and save it when the window is small.

It would be nice to have a shortcut where I can switch back and forth between borderless window and normal window using a shortcut without having to open up the menu. Another solution would be that the menu window for settings does extend beyond the size of the camera window.

Would it be difficult to change the program so that it does not go into the camera zoom view for the camera being clicked on when BlueIrisViewer window is NOT the current active window?
I.e. what I am trying to say is that if BlueIrisViewer is not the current active window and I click on any of the camera views in BlueirisViewer it should NOT zoom into to that camera but rather just make the BlueIrisViewer window to become the active window.

I'm sure it is possible, but not something I could just do in five minutes since the app is not at all aware of whether it is focused or not. I don't really run the app myself on non-dedicated displays so this change wouldn't serve any purpose for me. I'm just not interested in digging into that right now :)

I was pondering something slightly similar to CrazyFin, but probably just as low a priority -- for the app to go very low CPU/fps activity when minimised. Similar to when lost focus, it would essentially give the BI server less load when it isn't actually showing content to the viewer.

Probably not the most common use case of the viewer software though (is there a hotkey to exit the app?).

Besides the hotkeys built in the OS, no not really.

Hello all,

I downloaded this file but it will not run for me. When I doubleclick on it nothing happens.
I attempted to start it from CMD line and this is the output I got.

PS C:\Program Files (x86)\BlueIrisViewer.2.7.1> java -jar BlueIrisViewer.jar

Currently running Java ver 8U144 I even removed java deleted the sun folder in locallow reinstalled Java and still nothing.

I looked at my video driver and I do not see anything about OpenGL.
