ipCam Support / Re: Set framerate down to 1 fps
« Last post by EQWorry on October 14, 2017, 03:29:39 PM »
Thanks for the answer! Understood about the video framerate.  :) Interesting idea concerning using JPEG images. I use ffmpeg to grab the MJPEG stream over network and encode it to a fast-motion video (changing 1.2 fps to 25 fps). My first attempts at grabbing image repeatedly (using -loop 1 and -framerate 1) and turning them into video is not a complete disaster, but the framerates at input and output are weird, unexpected (by me). Thanks anyway and if you or somebody else have a working knowledge of ffmpeg or an example of a correct command line, it would be great. Meanwhile, I delve into searching and experimenting.  8)

Unfortunately the iOS device cameras have specific capture frame rate ranges that they support, and 1 fps is not one of them. :(

If that ever changes we'll be able to support it quite easily, yes. 8)

I am not familiar with your setup, but would you be able to have a 1 second timer on the "grabbing" side of things and simply connect to the JPEG (instead of the MJPEG) ipCam URL to get a single image every second?
ipCam Support / Set framerate down to 1 fps

Hi, cool app (!), doing exactly what I need - creating a MJPEG stream for network grabbing and further processing, on an old unused iPod Touch 5 with great camera. Just one thing troubles me. Would it be possible to allow setting framerate one more step down to 1 FPS? Currently the lowest setting is 2 FPS and the iPod cannot do that with the highest quality/size settings, managing about 1.3 FPS. Also, 1 FPS is exactly what I need for the timelapse videos. Thanks for replying and considering a small (hopefully) update! :)

 I had an issue after upgrading to Mac OS High Sierra— I had to do a fresh install of macOS High Sierra and then my icam was working great.   I don’t think the issue was with the iCam program.
iCam Pro Support / Re: malloc crash in Mac iCamSource Pro

f the iCamSource Pro is crashing, there may be crash logs that will help us troubleshoot the cause of the issue.

To find crash logs in Finder, click on the Go menu and choose Go to Folder... After selecting this command, a text field should appear in Finder. Paste the path ~/Library/Logs/DiagnosticReports/ into the text field, and click the Go button.

If you could email the most recent crash logs that start with ďiCamSourceĒ then hopefully we will be able to get to the bottom of this issue.
iCam Pro Support / malloc crash in Mac iCamSource Pro

For the last month or so, iCamSource Pro on Mac crashes within minutes of starting, after showing just one or two cameras for a minute or so.  Running it from the command line I see:

 iCamSource Pro[37827:4946827] [Crashlytics] Version 3.8.3 (120)
iCamSource Pro(37827,0x70000f0fe000) malloc: *** error for object 0x7fd6874989b0: pointer being freed was not allocated
*** set a breakpoint in malloc_error_break to debug

Ahh, Thanks Stefan I had the same problem with my Mac! You're a hero
iCam Pro Support / Re: Ongoing support?

Yes, we are planning on maintaining iCam and iCam Pro for the foreseeable future. :)

There are no IP cameras that we currently support "talking back" to ... Right now that is supported between iCam Pro and the computer running the iCamSource Pro.
iCam Pro Support / Ongoing support?
« Last post by BostonQuad on September 27, 2017, 09:25:16 PM »
Iíve used iCam with my built-in Mac cameras for years, and love the software.

Iím looking to install a couple of external cameras (prob PoE, maybe WiFi) connected to my Mac for some increased home surveillance.

However, I donít see a lot of activity on this forum, and Iím just curious if this software will still be supported for the foreseeable future?

Also, one of my main goals is to install a cam near my front door with 2-way audio. Anyone have any info on a current model of cam that would work with iCam in this regard? Iíve viewed the links on tested camera models but they seem to be a couple years old at the very least.

If anyone from SKJM reads this, thanks for providing this software through the years, and Iíd love to continue using it over switching to something like Ring or Nest.

Any thoughts or updated info is much appreciated!

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!
