I've installed Blue Iris software for some of my clients (and for my own IP cameras):

It is extremely robust software that I've configured for numerous camera makes and models, including some with PTZ controls, but never Vivotek. However, the drop-down for selecting a camera include several Vivotek models:

Blue Iris Vivotek
I don't know if it will work for yours, but it's worth a try. Here's a link to the download, which allows a free trial:

Hi Paul,
If you have any problems with the software, I'll try to help, but I've had no experience with Vivotek cameras. Also, the Blue Iris technical support via email ( has been extremely good — they respond quickly and with knowledgeable folks. Regards, Joe

Just a quick update to let you know that I used Blue Iris with two more camera models since my last post and both worked fine — but neither was a Vivotek. Have you had any success with Blue Iris on the Vivotek cameras? Regards, Joe

Two months ago, Paul said, regarding my suggestion, "Great thanks Joe. Will give it a try." There has been no feedback about his efforts to give it a try since then. I'm hoping to get some feedback before the question is deleted. Thanks, Joe
