A simple webcam viewer for Mac OS X... I've gone through three different Mac OS programs to watch the webcam on my front door. All of them had varying stability problems, and I got sick of rebooting my PowerMac just to bring my pasteboard server back to life after one of the cam apps killed it repeatedly.

So what's a Cocoa-speaking geek to do? Code my own of course.... I got fed up yesterday after rebooting to resurrect my pbs. My sweetie was just heading out to go grocery shopping, and I joked that I should be able to whip something up before she got back. Indeed, it was quite functional 15 or so minutes before she returned. I've more...

  • Fixed window position not restoring if windows were offscreen at quit

  • Updated bug URLs to new Bugzilla server

  • Added Refresh All and Close All menu items to Window menu

This is a very simple and reliable app. Adjusting settings is a snap and it worked right off the bat with no problems. Documentation was clear and accurate. Well done!

"(B)efore she got (B)ack". I just don't think the deceloper would have named it big brother. I mean, the story behind the app must have certainly been it's naming motivation. And how clever to name it as such. Since he did finish it B.B.

"Before she got Back..." Hmm... Never thought of that one, but I guess it fits.

I was actually thinking Big Brother, as in "Big Brother is watching you". It still kind of freaks some of my friends out that I have a webcam on my front door, and they think maybe I took 1984 a little too much to heart!

I click on the close window button....and it comes back. I click again, and the cat comes back! I swear at the window while I click, yet the zombie comes back from the dead. Die, window, DIE!

Sorry about that! If you setup a viewer, the prefs window will stay gone. There's a fix for that you can get from my site (www.thebedells.org/software) or just use the program's auto update feature. I haven't got around to posting an update to MacUpdate yet as I've a few more things in the works before I call it a new release.

Thanks for giving BB a try in any case!
