HobbyCam offers the ability to control your webcam settings remotely from your iPhone/iPod Touch. For example, you can "instantly" change your webcam's resolution, brightness, contrast, frame rate etc. (Note, a setting control is only available if your webcam and its driver supports it.).


HobbyCam also supports multi-user access of your webcam. That is, you can have your video streams to multiple iPhones/iPod Touches devices simultaneously!!! Secure user authentications are supported.

For further details and server package, visit http://apps.galaxynetwork.org.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you have problem of receiving live image from your webcam (i.e. you can connect to the server but receive a warning message "Video stream stalled" immediately after you start streaming), you should go to Settings.app and switch on "behind a firewall" switch in the HobbyCam settings. After this change, make sure you restart HobbyCam from scratch.
