Seems to work pretty well, though still has at least one Web-cam that is out of date.

Some of the webcams are on less the perfect servers that experince some downtime. If a webcam you want to use isnt working try it again in a few days. Thanks!

The only reason the install could finsih with errors is because it was unable to run the script that adds lglauncher to the login items. You can do this manually if you would like by adding it under system preferences-accounts-loginitems. Otherwise it should work fine. Email us if you are having any more issues. Thanks!
