iVCam is designed to be simple and powerful inside. Most of its features are clear, while some features are not. Here’re some feature descriptions and tips for it.
You can use mouse wheel on video or press “CTRL+” / “CTRL-” to zoom in or zoom out, and click on video to change focus, just like working on phone.
Manual Focus and Auto Focus
It works the same way as the “Camera” app. Tap screen to use “Manual Focus”, and move the phone wide range to change back to “Auto Focus” mode. In manual focus mode, it will adjust the exposure time automatically based on the zone you tapped, and you can change it manually as well (see below).
Adjust Exposure time
Swipe up or down on video to adjust exposure time.
Adjust camera ISO
Swipe left or right on video to adjust ISO value.
You can zoom in/out the video just like the “Camera” app.
Save battery power
iVCam app will close video and show black screen to save battery power after a while if there’s no user action (transfer will still work). You can tap it to show the video again, but this time it will keep showing the video without closing it and showing black screen.
Using different MIC
iPhone has several microphones , and iVCam will use the default one (bottom) at first. When the button was tapped to change camera, iVCam will change MIC accordingly – front MIC for front camera, and back MIC for back camera.
There’s a network signal icon on iVCam video. It means that your phone’s network is not good enough to transfer video if it’s not full, and the video frames will be dropped sometimes in this case to keep video transferring in time.
Sometimes the phone is connected but it can’t transfer video, just stay in main view. In this case, you can enter settings view then come back, iVCam will try to reconnect and start transferring.
iVCam uses Bonjour service to detect PC, but it will still work if there’s no Bonjour service installed on PC. It will try to use UDP broadcast to find your PC. So, please be sure that at least one of them is available on your PC.
Free version limitation
You can try all its features freely except that there’s a “iVCam” watermark on the video.
Some features will be unavailable after a period of time. Please purchase full version to use all its features.
