Multiple Cameras Not Working
« on: January 28, 2015, 07:07:37 PM »
First, let me say I love iCamPro.  Really cool monitoring from my phone!  However....

I have two LifeCams attached to one PC, but one always shows nothing but grey screen.  Both cameras are functioning just fine.  If I attach each one alone, everything works just fine.  But when I connect both, I get the grey screen of death.

I have ensured that I've chosen different cameras in the Preferences/General window.

I borrowed a camera from work (not a LifeCam) and it works fine alongside either one of the LifeCams, so I know multiple cameras should work.

I need some help getting the second LC to work.

Are you able to access both LifeCam cameras via any other video capture software?

no intention to hi jack the post but exactly the same issue running mac osx yosemite. two webcams work fine it makes no difference if i use a usb hub either. dwayne cam can view all four webcams though no issue. slightly annoying as im really liking icam and icampro both apps do the same as well.

update i have closed the app and re-opened but no luck, when icampro is running i have no preview but my iphone is able to see one cam?

Please make sure there arenít any other video capture programs (such as Skype) running. They might be fighting iCamSource for access to the camera.
