- Why my iPhone can't connect to my PC?
First, please make sure that your iPhone is in the same LAN with your PC (such as using the same WiFi).
Second, please make sure that our application is not blocked by your firewall (we use UDP/TCP port 5895).
Also please ensure that Boujour service and iVCam service is started (You can start them in windows "services" app, or just start them in task manager). There's no need to block them because they don't use CPU much.
Enable UDP broadcast in your router if Boujour service is not installed or disabled, because we can also connect your iPhone with your PC via UDP broadcasting.
- Why the video quality is not so good?
You can set the "video quality" to "high" in settings view to get the best quality, which needs higher bandwidth.
- Why the video is lagging?
You can try using low video quality, small video size and frame rate.
iVCam is real-time video streaming and requires high-performance network, maybe the lagging was caused by the router (especially when video lags at regular intervals), and sometimes a reboot for the router will help.
- The CPU usage is high
You can enable "Hardware Decode" in the menu to use hardware to decode the video, but there's a little delay. Please don't forget to close the preview window as well.
- How to remove the "iVCam" watermark?
You need to purchase full version to remove it.
