Network / IP Camera Compatibility / Re: Hikvision cam compatability
« on: September 24, 2017, 09:43:13 PM »

If the MJPEG or JPEG URL isnít something that can be found by searching around with Google or by contacting their support, we actually have another solution available, although it is currently in its very preliminary stages, and that is:

^^^^^ This is awesome.  It found one path that worked for my camera!


IP Cam Config Support / Re: iOS 11 support

Will IP Cam Config be updated to support iOS11? It's telling me that it currently won't work once I update my iPhone.

We may update it to support iOS 11 in the future, but are not planning on updating it before iOS 11 is released.

iCam Pro Support / Re: iPhone good. Wi-fi iPad, not so good

If your iPad is on the same local WiFi network as the iCamSource Pro and your iPhone then the most likely cause is that the login and password are not exactly matching. Please note that both are case-sensitive and any additional whitespace either before or after the login or password is considered part of the login or password.

Thank you!!!! This solved the problem.

Great news! 8)

It does seem odd that a change in anti-virus software would be the cause of the issue. Since it seems to occur pretty consistently, could you please email a screenshot of the error message that you are seeing to Please reference this forum thread in your email.

You may want to try resetting your iCamSource Preferences in case they have gotten into a bad state.

To do that, quit the iCamSource, and then open Finder and press Command+Shift+G or select the Go > Go to Folder... item from the menu bar and paste in ~/Library/Preferences/com.skjm.icamsource.plist and click the Go button.

This will take you to the iCamSource preferences file, which you can move to the trash to delete it. Then, restart your Mac, and re-launch the iCamSource. Once you re-enter your iCamSource info you should hopefully be able to connect.

How many cameras do you currently have connected to the iCamSource, and are they USB or network cameras?

I just threw money down the toilet because there is no support for this software. Amazing. Shame on SKJM.


It appears as if 13 minutes passed between your first post ( and this one. Did you try contacting us earlier, perhaps via another method that we may have missed?

Actually, it appears you did send us an email 44 minutes before this post. We try to respond to support requests within 12 to 24 hours, so if you reached out previously, our apologies!

iCam Pro Support / Re: Please help with setup

The issue is that you are attempting to connect to the iCamSource Pro using the non-pro iCam on your mobile device.

iCam connects to the iCamSource, and iCam Pro connects to the iCamSource Pro. The pro and non-pro apps are incompatible with one another.

Since you are connecting with iCam, you are going to want to download the non-pro iCamSource to your computer from instead.

As mentioned in our response to your other post, bandwidth can be reduced by reducing the MJPEG frame rate output by your network IP cameras:

As for iCam support h.264, we are actively looking into it, but there are, unfortunately, other issues.

We have discussed the legal/licensing issues of h.264 decoding previously, but there are other things to consider when talking about 7 cameras, and that is CPU usage.

You are correct that h.264 cameras use less bandwidth than MJPEG cameras, and that is due to the vastly improved compression algorithm. The problem is that decoding the h.264 video stream to perform the motion detection checks would require a lot more CPU processing power than the MJPEG streams. Multiply that by 7 cameras and I am guessing that most computers these days would not be able to handle it.

This would be the equivalent of streaming 7 1080p HD YouTube videos to your computer at once, in addition to the additional motion detection processing and re-encoding of video to save to disk when motion is detected, the uploading to the cloud for backup, etc.

Assuming that you are using an MJPEG URL to connect to your cameras, the issue is that your cameras are likely streaming 30 fps of video to the iCamSource, which is why you are seeing so much bandwidth usage. If you reduce the frame rate setting in the cameras themselves, you should see a significant reduction in bandwidth usage.

The iCamSource connects to the cameras, and simply receives the video stream that the cameras send to it. The frame rate / image quality settings in the iCamSource affects the connection between iCam and the iCamSource, not between the iCamSource and network IP cameras.

The Apple Watch issue should be independent of the iCam Pro-to-iCamSource Pro connectivity, but if you do not have a strong 3G/4G connection, the watch alert may not be shown if it cannot be downloaded quick enough before you raise you arm to view it.

Also, the watch connects to your phone via Bluetooth when not on WiFi, so if you are using any other Bluetooth connectivity (streaming audio, etc.) it can make it more challenging for the watch alert download to complete in time.

How many "dots" of 3G/4G signal do you have when you are having these problems?

Additionally, when using both the Public and Private Proxies, the Public ones will be tried first before falling back to your Private data, but they are not as performant as our Private server.

When you are connected to the same local WiFi network do you see any of these kinds of intermittent issues? Or is it only when away from home?

Any way of changing the fontsize of the timestamp onscreen?  At the moment it's rather large.


Not currently, but I'll add that to our list of feature requests. :)

Do you have a link to the specifications of the cameras that you are using?
