HobbyCam is a simple, intuitive and high performance application for streaming images from a standard webcam to iPhones/iPod Touches. This is (probably) the only app in its category that has native server backend for the three most popular operating systems: Linux, OS X and Windows. The streaming rate can reach up to 25 FPS (on lowest resolution) even on a 3G network (see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JdMsF8-OHTo).
HobbyCam is ideal for people who would like to setup a cost-effective remote monitoring solution at home (or small shop) using an spare computer and Linux.
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.

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.
