Mirror is a widget that displays yourself. Useful before business meetings and when the bathroom is crowded.
this widget tries to open a connection to qtsoftware.apple.com on TCP port 80
It's to QuickTime on your computer, not to any external servers. Try with your Internet connection turned off and see for yourself :-) but it won't work beyond Tiger...
I only get a blank (transparent) window... PhotoBoth works fine. If there's another process using the webcam I have no idea what it is.
MacBookPro, OS X 10.4.6
Now it works again. Apple introduced a bug that got resolved with QuickTime 7.0.4 and Mac OS X 10.4.4.
Ever since I upgraded to Tiger I haven't been able to get any image from Mirror. My iSight is fine as it works normally in iChat. Any ideas?
I am running OS X 10.4.2 and using iSight, but I get a green window at first. Then when I am resizing the window the camera image appears and updates, but then freezes again when I stop resizing. This happens regardless of whether iChat is open or closed. Please fix this, the application seems cool!
Green window here as well.
I have OS X 10.4.1. I get a big black square with the words "Smile, you are beautiful today" above it, but no image. I used to have just a grey square until I removed iChat from my menu bar. What else do I need to do to get this to work?
Not completely sure apart from making sure that no other application is currently linked to the iSight and to make sure that the iSight is active (green light). It might help to unplug and replug it. If you can get the following website to show your picture then the setup is fine:
i luv this app, does what it says great work guys
actually, my iSight is not in use by another app.. and I still received the green also... FYI :-)
Mirror uses whatever the video-in signal that is coming. Nothing more, nothing less. A green signal could mean that the iSight is attached but has a closed shutter or is elsewhere not transmitting its signal. Try to unplug and replug it and make sure it is functional.
This widget looks like a great idea, but I get nothing but a green screen. I have verified my iSight is working a-ok.
Green screen = you have an iSight, but it is currently usedby another application. Close the other window and re-open Mirror.
