OH MAN!!!  What a shock to hear!
I can completely understand that this board is probably not high on your list of priorities though....
It is unbelievable how some people can ruin a good thing for many with their hate speech and stupid, unfounded threats, and being on the receiving end of all that crap can wear on a person, so you do what YOU want to, and have to, do.
This board, and YOU will be missed by me and many other great people that have been so helpful and pleasant.

This news didn't make my day, but I can see why you feel the way you do, and you do what you want to do!  I will understand.
No hard feelings from me!

Troubleshooting / Re: Flashing when zooming
« on: October 15, 2016, 07:32:53 pm »
Just reverted back to ver. from a backup and the flashing problem is gone, so there is something in ver. that has a problem with zooming in and panning around.
Evidently no one else is seeing this?

Try this...
select the group you want to edit (lower left corner of BI window.
2) click gear icon
3) in popup window under Auto cycle, set Auto Cycle Delay to what you want.

This setting affects each camera group individually, so you can set the cycle times for each group.

Troubleshooting / Flashing when zooming
« on: October 14, 2016, 10:17:16 pm »
New problem with the latest updates.
BI ver. x64
Foscam and Trendnet cheapie cameras.
When playing back the recorded video (BVR format), when I zoom (using wheel on mouse) either playback or paused playback, the image flashes to normal for a "mouse wheel click" then to the zoom level.
This flashing also happens when zoomed in and dragging the image.  Real time video is fine.

This has never happened before updates, so either there is a new setting that I haven't found, or there is a bug.

Is anyone else experiencing this?

General Talk / Re: CPU running high with New BI setup

What percentage is he experiencing?
One big way to cut down on cpu load is to lower the framerate for viewing... Options/Cameras/Limit live preview frame rate to something like 4-5 FPS.
This does not affect your recordings.
You might want to experiment with different settings to see how the cpu load changes if he needs higher frame rate for previewing.

Also, the pretrigger setting on the cameras would affect the load because the video is always being processed even though no recording is taking place.
Once again, you will have to try different things and see.

WOW!  I thought I was being over sensitive!  Guess NOT!  SO glad to leave that looser and his group of a$$ wipes (sorry If I went overboard with the verbage...).
He will never be able to carry on an intelligent conversation.

This forum is MUCH MUCH better!  I know what you mean about that piece of trash and his "forum"!
Nothing but insults, threats, useless information on that forum!
Don't understand why he has such a crappy attitude and i don't understand how he keeps his subscribers, but I imagine they won't last long due to his comments and attitude.

I hope you have a pleasant experience on cam-it!  It has been overall very helpful to me!

I have noticed from the last 2-3 updates that when I regenerate the clip database, when it is through there are NO clips listed for any of my cameras.
I have to run the regenerate a couple of times again, or shutdown and restart BI for the clips to show up.
Seems like a possible bug in the database engine?

Troubleshooting / Camera cycle freezing
« on: August 29, 2016, 05:11:14 am »
First my equipment.
BI "server" AMD hex core 3Ghz., 12Gig ram, 256G SSD.
All cameras wired.
3 foSCAM 8918, 4 foSCAM 9831, 2 USB on USB to ethernet hub, Trendnet TVIP-110 (problem child).
BI ver. (been using BI for 4 years?).

Tablet  Invidia Shield K1 wireless 5Ghz.  Also tried 2.4 Ghz.. no change.  Android 6.0.1  App optimization is turned off, but turning it on did not make any difference.
Laptop Dell Latitude E6500 wired LAN

I have one of my foSCAM 9831 and the Trendnet in a group called "front yard".

My problem happens when I try and used front yard "hold for cycle" on the tablet and/or the laptop, the cycle will start and may go through 2-4 cycles, then the Trendnet freezes.
  I know it is frozen because the time stops, and the image is obviously frozen and it always the Trendnet.

This ONLY happens on the Trendnet, and NONE of my other cameras have this problem.

I have tried different configurations of my groups with more than just the two cameras, a different second camera, restarting the Trendnet camera in BI, disabling and re-enabling the camera, with no change.
I even deleted the Trendnet camera and recreated a new camera, and it still froze.
In BI "server", the camera is NOT frozen as the time is still incrementing and the image is changing as if nothing has happened.
No warnings in BI log either, and the watchdog doesn't trigger for that camera.
The status page, under the "webcast" column also stops updating for that camera when it freezes, which tells me that it could be the HTML code has a bug for MJPEG cameras.

Could the HTML code that generates the remote view page have problems with an MJPEG camera?
It is NOT my tablet because the laptop does the same thing.  It also is not my wireless because the laptop is wired.

 The cycle is just frozen and the only way to resume is to "go back" to the camera list and re-select the group.

One thing I did notice on the laptop is when the camera freezes, a couple of seconds later the screen flashes and the camera starts running again, where the tablet doesn't do this.
Seems like a timer that the HTML runs on the laptop that resets when there is a freeze, but the tablet doesn't do it.

If I just display the two cameras together (no cycling), the cameras do not freeze and run just fine, it is ONLY when I use camera cycle AND one of the cameras is the Trendnet.

What is so "special" with the Trendnet????
 I is old and an mJPeG camera and not a shiny new H264, but it has worked for years and is fine for my application.

I have also found that indexing can really slow down your machine.  That is one of the first things I disable.
Yes, searching may take longer, but how often do you search vs. performance and drive wear and tear?

Just my opinion though... some users do need indexing.

General Talk / Re: Check your Profiles after update
« on: July 24, 2016, 07:41:32 pm »
I never have used the command line or Bicommand, so the "defprofile" entry on any of my cameras in the registry did not exist, or the one that was defaulting to profile 7 which I had setup a global profile 7 to turn on continuous recording on several of my cameras.

I had only one of the cameras that would run profile 7 regardless of the camera's 'local" profile schedule.

I cured it by recreating that camera and deleting the old camera that had the problem and so far so good.

Thanks Stick for the warning!
I updated and found one of my cameras would not switch profiles and was stuck on profile 7 which I had set for continuous recording!  I had a few days of continuous recording that really ate up my disk space, and I too could not figure out what made this happen, so I had to create another camera all over again... what a PAIN!
I had several schedule changes, trigger settings, recording settings that needed to be setup again.
I even tried to export the old camera reg's and import to the new one, and it didn't work... wonder what makes this happen on only one camera??

Anyway, thanks for the heads up!
