1) Download iCam to your iPhone or iPod touch and iCamSource to your computer.

Repeat Steps 2 & 3 for any additional computers and Steps 4 & 5 for any additional iPhones or iPod touches, being sure to use the same Login and Password for all of them.
Q : Do I have to configure my firewall or router or know what my IP address is to use iCam?
A : Nope. 🙂
In most situations, things should « just work » unless your network is particularly complex or restricted.
If you do have problems getting things to work, please be sure to either Contact Support or visit the Discussion Forum.
Q : Does this work if iCam is connected via EDGE or 3G or a different WiFi network than the iCamSource?
A : Yes.
Q : What types of cameras does the iCamSource support?
A : The iCamSource currently supports any Built-In, FireWire or USB webcam supported by Windows XP/Vista or OS X 10.4 (Tiger) and later. It also supports FireWire-connected DV cameras on OS X 10.5 (Leopard) and later. Video-only support is also available for most MJPEG/JPEG-compatible WiFi and Ethernet network IP webcams. MPEG-4 and h.264 devices are not supported.
Q : Can I save screenshots in iCam?
A : Yes, you can save screenshots by pressing the iPhone’s Home and Sleep/wake buttons at the same time. The images will be stored in your iPhone’s Photos Camera Roll.
Q : Is iCam « peer-to-peer » or are the audio & video sent through your servers?
A : Yes, iCam is a « peer-to-peer » application. The iCamSource sends its audio & video directly to iCam, and nothing is ever sent through our servers.
Q : Can anyone else connect to my iCamSource and view my webcam?
A : No. The only way that someone can connect to your iCamSource is if they know your iCam Login and Password, just like every other account you have on the Internet. In addition, your iCam Login and Password are never sent to our servers, so your video feeds are able to be kept completely private.
