Great, if you are content with .mov files you can never make mp4. evocam records audio track with wrong AudioType which means attempt to convert to mp4 with a pass through filter will result in an unusuable mp4 in just about ANY player out there. without an option to record videos UNCOMPRESSED means that there is NO WAY to avoid this bad recording code. you can MAYBE generate an mp4 using a non passthrough but it's compressing file a second time which degrades video further. if this app could record UNCOMPRESSED like old version it wouldn' be so bad.

looks like 3.7 had a 3.7.6 update not long ago. never knew that. it actually works great. now THAT is program i missed. macupdate should include the 3.7.6 download link since it supports more cameras and has more features

I think the software on a whole is very good. On the other hand support seems to be non-existent. My first email for support was answered quickly. After that I have had what I consider major issues with the software and have not even gotten a reply to my emails. I have in time worked out the issues but at a lot of my own time and frustration. Basically do not use the stand by buffer function!

I like the full use demo. I was able to setup motion detect and time lapse on one camera. I did have some problem with the camera losing data or having a scrambled image, not sure if it was having snapshot and movie requests at the same time so I will try it with 2 cameras. the program is easy to use once you find out how to add multiple actions. I am using USB cameras which may be part of my data problems.

There is a memory leak in 4.1. I'm running this on an iMac that has 16 gigs of memory and after running continously for a couple of days, all my free memory is gone and Evocam will crash.

I have ran 3.0 for a couple of years. On it sometimes the interface was goofy on adding network cameras. So when 4.0 came out I upgraded immediately. Like the new interface, so much easier to manage cameras. I run 6 IP cameras in one window.

The only downer is the amount of CPU usage. On an iMac i5 it runs 80% (used by EvoCam) most of the time. Slows up the computer quite a bit. If the developer could improve the cpu usage, I'd give it 5 stars.

This really is excellent stuff, thank you.

The only problems I've had have been getting the wireless camera connected to my router (thanks to terrible mac support from the camera manufacturer). Once that was done, enter Evo Cam and the rest was a breeze. I was able to select my camera from a drop-down list and it just worked. I had several requirements - ftp'ing a named image to my server every minute, storing an image locally every minute so that I can make a timelapse, and storing a daily image for a different timelapse. I've been able to do all this and a lot more. Being able to crop the camera's image and add my website's name along with the timestamp was all a bonus.

Very easy to use without referral to the manual and does far more than I need. Very happy to pay. Thanks again.

I dont understand why V4 doesnt support all IP Cams which were supported in Version 3!
I understand thats impossible to support all , but why lost support of IP cams which are already implemented in V3.
My EDIMAX 1500GW works with 3.0 but is not listed in 4.0. So i will not buy V 4.0.

I get it managed (my EDIMAX) by using the configure IP Cam (universal) entry. Worked. Should be no problem for the devs to add some of the working V3 devices as entry profiles into V4, i think.
I understand that first they work on main development tasks before adding the known older IP cams.

i was a happy owner of 3.x but i'm not too fond of 4.x version right now, it just seems like a rewrite that took away half the features i used. As it stands now it doesn't have nearly the assortment of options the previous version had. I go to recording options and there really aren't any. I want to control everything, and i just dont have those "knobs" so to speak in 4.x. hopefully they return

Completely agree. First Skype wrecked their interface for me now EvoCam seems to be on the same trip. Why change what worked well?

"adds new daytime/nighttime and daylight schedules, video quality adjustment, support for more network cameras, and fixes several issues affecting application stability and performance."
Thank you. I'll give it a whirl and see if it's more usuable now.

Still garbage btw vs 3. I'm not even sure the quality settings even work. Even if i set to maximum. It produces such low quality crap vs 3.0. I have a VERY good camera. this is an app problem
