Spy Xv1.2b1

12 March 2005

Allow visitors to view your screen LIVE via the web.

Overview

Note: Spy X is no longer under development, and it is no longer available for sale.

Spy allows you to run a small server on your Mac, that when accessed by any normal Web browser, allows people to see your screen, as well as information about your Mac.

But it doesn't stop there - they can look at a normal static image, or they can look at your screen, live, in real-time! You can also choose which image format you want to use - JPEG or PNG. Not only that, but the user can choose what picture quality they want by manually specifying their desired quality and scale in the picture.jpg or picture.png request! Other features include 2 built-in layouts and custom layout support, and a Live Connection manager that lets you see everyone that is viewing your desktop live as well as disconnect any of those users.

For A 1.0b1 this program is awsome! Seems pretty stable and uses less CPU then its competitor and live streaming rocks! Hopefully firewall support will be added soon so I can open my desktop to the public. :-) Great job developer!

I love spy but I wish they worked on it a little more. I would like to have the ability to change the sound. Its very loud and I can't do anything about it because I can't open the contents. Hope to see an update

While no longer crashing I consistantly see this error in the log when I notice the screenshot image failing to load: "Exception in HTTPEndpoint_ProcessStaticImage" no idea what that means other than the screenshot doesn't end up being transmitted.

Instead of crashing on the 2nd or 3rd visit like it used to, now it just seems to hang while loading the image although the html "skin" loads fine. Quiting and restarting SpyX fixes it for a bit so there's still a bug there somewhere.

No it was not dead, just in an extremely long alpha test. They actually released the beta yesterday morning.

Holy poop. I thought this was dead. I hope this fixes the random post-visit crashing bug.

Cool program I didn't always like it opened though so I made a duplicate copy and used the one copy to configure the settings and the other I made invisible with Drop Script Background http://macupdate.com/info.php/id/7922 so now I don't have to have the icon showing all the time use activity monitor to quit

Yes it does tend to crash when the first call is made to get the screen image. If you relaunch it after that everything is ok again, until it's quit and relaunched or the Mac is rebooted. Then, the initial call will crash it once again. Unfortunately it appears as though development has ceased on this great, fun app.

It's great but it tends to crash occasionally under 10.3.2 for some reason. I'm still trying to figure out what's causing it.

Really cool! I'd used Snapperhead for years for sharing ideas live with friends, but the live stream of Spy is even better than a snapshot. The optional info tags are handy too.

Great program. Firewall support is excellent, and the processor use is marvelous. Streams at any rate, and is perfect for dial-up, even. The ease of bypassing the firwall does ddepend on your firewall, but I have a router with one built in, and it was minimal.

Amazing, simply amazing fun! With the new directory page at the author's Web site, I'm looking forward to the traffic. And it's still FREE!!

I'm sorry, I'm sure this program has its good uses, but it makes me a little paranoid.

I really like using Spy. It makes it a lot easier to demonstrate a feature in a game or in some application to a friend who might live 800 miles away. However, I wish the interface was multithreaded so that it would be responsive even when multiple streams are being transferred.
