Monday, November 1st, 2010

We are happy to announce to release of iCam 1.0 to the Android Market.

This initial version of iCam for Android is truly a "1.0" release: It allows you to stream up to 4 computer webcam video feeds to your Android phone over 3G or WiFi. Sound, notifications and motion events will be included in future updates.

iCam 1.0 for Android is currently available for the reduced price of $2.99 on the Android Market. As features are added to meet the capabilities of the iPhone version, the price will reflect that as well. (The iPhone version currently sells for $4.99 on the App Store.)

New Release – iCamSource 1.2 BETA

Tuesday, May 5th, 2009

Two of the most requested features have now been added to the latest BETA version of the iCamSource:

  • Preliminary video-only support for MJPEG-compatible WiFi and Ethernet network IP webcams.
  • Window now minimizes to the System Tray / Menu Bar.

Please visit the iCam Support page for more information, including the list of currently tested and supported MJPEG-compatible webcams.

If your network webcam is not currently supported, you can either request its addition in this thread of the discussion forum or by e-mailing support.

Thanks! :)

New Release – iVid 1.0

Wednesday, April 29th, 2009

iVid allows you to stream DRM-free iPhone-compatible video files to your iPhone or iPod touch from any number of computers around the world over WiFi, 3G and EDGE. Simply install and run the iVidSource software on your Mac or PC, choose which video folders you want to share, and you’ll be able to have your entire video library available to you in the palm of your hand.

No need to forward or open ports in your router or firewall, either. iVid “just works” with the majority of network configurations, just like our other iPhone application, iCam.

So now instead of disk space on your iPhone, the only limiter you have is bandwidth: If you are connecting via 3G or EDGE or are connected to a slower-than-average WiFi network, your higher-quality videos simply aren’t going to stream fast enough to be watchable. This post in our support forum contains step-by-step instructions for converting your videos for streaming over both WiFi and 3G/EDGE.

For more information on iVid please visit our Support Forum or drop us a line at and we will be more than happy to answer your questions.

Thanks! :)

Coming Soon – iVid

Tuesday, March 31st, 2009

I love British comedy television shows. The Mighty Boosh, The IT Crowd, Little Britain … The list goes on. Because of this, I have a lot of episodes synced to my iPhone … But not all of them.

The episodes that you buy through iTunes are big: 640×360 and around 300MB each. That’s bigger than they need to be just for the iPhone’s 480×320, because they are also made to be watchable on your computer as well as your Apple TV. So what can you do to fit more on your iPhone or iPod touch?

Well, you could start off by using versions of the videos that are only 480×270. They’ll be smaller than the iTunes downloads, and yet they’ll still look great on your iPhone. Unfortunately you can’t just resize the iTunes videos you’ve paid for because they are restricted by DRM, but hopefully that will change sometime in the not-too-distant future.

For now, your options seem to be limited to either ripping them yourself from your DVD collection or downloading them from the various “other” locations on the Internet. Once you’ve converted your videos into iPhone-formatted files, you’ll be able to fit more episodes on your iPhone than with the larger-format ones … But there is still a limit to how many you can sync at any one time.

This, my friends, is where iVid comes in. :)

New Feature – iCamWeb

Thursday, February 5th, 2009

As was previously mentioned in this forum thread about being able to access your iCamSource from another computer instead of from your iPhone or iPod Touch, we have released a Beta version of what we are calling iCamWeb.

iCamWeb allows you to connect to your iCamSource(s) from most any modern, Java-enabled web browser from most any computer around the world. You can even share a link via e-mail, IM, etc., to allow other people to view your iCamSource(s) from their computers as well.

iCamWeb currently supports most any modern web browser (Safari, Firefox, Internet Explorer, Opera) running on most any modern operating system (Mac OS X, Windows XP/Vista, Ubuntu).

iCamWeb works by using a Signed Java Applet (click here if you need to download Java) to communicate with our iCam Broker Server and your iCamSource(s). You will need to “Run” or “Trust” the Applet when asked to allow it to communicate with our iCam Broker Server and your iCamSource(s).

iCamWeb is currently a free, ad-supported service that will hopefully be just what a number of our users have been looking for.

UPDATE : iCamWeb now supports Internet Explorer and is currently in Beta. :)

Coming Soon – iCam 1.1

Thursday, February 5th, 2009

We are happy to announce that we have submitted iCam 1.1 to Apple for App Store approval today, so hopefully it will be available within the next week or so.

Due to overwhelming demand, the major feature we have added is sound support, with new versions of the iCamSource to be released for both Mac and Windows when iCam 1.1 is released.

(And contrary to some of the App Store reviews, this hasn’t taken us 6 months to finish, especially since we only released iCam about 2 1/2 months ago.) ;)
