Install Unifi Video (NVR) on Ubuntu 14.04

This is a new post with basically the same instructions only not tied to a specific version. I will keep this post edited to reflect the current version.

I’m starting with a fresh, fully updated server install of Ubuntu Server 14.04 64bit.

Download the current Unifi Video deb package. 3.4.0 as of this edit (9/25/16)

sudo dpkg -i unifi-video_3.4.0~Ubuntu14.04_amd64.deb

At this point you will probably receive an error about missing dependencies. No worries, simply run the following.

sudo apt-get -f install

That command will install all the needed dependencies and finish installing the unifi video deb package. At this point, Unifi Video is installed and should be running. Open a web browser and point it to https://ipaddress:7443.
