iVCam FAQs

First, please make sure that your iPhone is in the same LAN with your PC (such as using the same WiFi).
Second, please ensure that the Bonjour service is started (which is installed by iVCam, and you can start it in windows “services” app, or in task manager). There’s no needs to block it because it doesn't use CPU much.
Enable UDP broadcasting in your router if Bonjour service is not installed or disabled, because iVCam app can also detect your PC via UDP broadcasting.
This means that they're in the same network, but maybe not in the same network segment. For example, iPhone's IP address is 192.168.0.x, while the PC's 192.168.1.x, so they can't connect to each other. You can google "How to connect two different network segments" to find a solution and make them connectable.
The another reason may be that the PC's UDP/TCP port 5898 is blocked by your firewall, you should check and unblock it to make it works.
You can set the “video quality” to “high” in settings view to get the best quality, which needs higher bandwidth.
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.
You need to purchase full version to remove it.
