Can't hide new version of iCam Source
« on: July 25, 2009, 05:57:47 AM »
One of the features in the last version allowed me to hide iCam source once it had been started - my thoughts were this was a nice feature to help make sure folks that were accessing your computer or your home for that matter unlawfully would not be aware the camera was viewing them - this was selectable at the top tool bar on my MAC and unless I am doing something wrong is not available on the new version and I can't even minimize the iCam source window to get it of the screen - Also if I close iCam source by pressing the X close button on its window I can not restart unless I reboot my computer

Sorry I jumped the gun - there is a new iCam icon at the top right of my toolbar that when I close the window by pressing the X button on the iCam source window hides the screen and clicking preferences in the icons selection brings it back up - no need for a restart

There is currently no official method of hiding the iCamSource icon on your Mac.

An "unofficial" way would be to right-click the iCamSource application in your Applications folder, select Show Package Contents, then open the Contents > Resources folder and renaming or moving the iCamSourceStatus_Running.png file. Then, when you run the iCamSource and Start it, no icon will appear in the menu bar, although there will be a blank space still visible that you can click on to access the iCamSource.
