This close to being perfect
For the life of me I don’t understand why this doesn’t have USB support. It literally would’ve been, and I’m not exaggerating, the premium version of any other cam app here if it had this one small feature with the USB. The problem with WiFi is the lag and the latency. People wouldn’t have minded just plugging in their phone or that just being an option along with the wireless one. Other than that, I love that video quality change is free, I really can’t complain about a lot. But because of that minor problem I will still find myself using the other cams. Too bad, as I really liked the free features here. I’ll give it ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️/2
Works well for me, one minor niggle
Interesting to read some of these reviews that seem so disconnected to my experience. One of them complains about the low resolution from a wifi connection and the wish to be able to use this tethered. On my old Mac, with the phone tethered and the Iriun software running, I open Quicktime, click “New Movie Recording”, choose Iriun Webcam as the source and I’m good to go at resolutions much better than over wifi. AFAIK this may be the only free webcam app that lets you record in full HD (1080p), so for the price I shouldn’t complain but will anyway (sorry!): It seems you can only record at 1080p when the Quality setting is “Maximum” which means the file is saved as ProRes 422 (at least that’s how it works in Quicktime). That’s great except one minute of recording uses a gigabyte of disk space! It would be fantastic if you could record 1080p at the “High” setting on Quicktime which would use the H.264 codec and save a lot of space. Setting Quicktime to “High” forces the resolution from Iriun down to 720p. I would definitely pay a few bucks to unlock 1080p/H.264. All in all, a nice and simple app that seems to work fine (on Macs at least!). If you can spare the disk space, your phone can now shoot very high quality video direct to your computer while also using your computer monitor as a viewfinder.
Good but could be better
I have the app connected from my iPad to my Windows PC. It works nicely if you’re just running the app on both computer and iPad. Problem is that on the computer the program window will be small and you can’t resize it. When I tried using it as a webcam for zoom and jamkazam the results were the same. The visuals in both kept repeatedly blinking from the picture to black. I felt like a stroke warning should have been issued before I made my attempts. On zoom I tried sharing my screen and it worked, but again the screen was small and I couldn’t resize it. I paid $6.99 for screen control on my iPad but there are only a few things you can do: Flip camera, mirror, and brighten. I can’t really use brighten because my iPad doesn’t have a flashlight. I hope that if this app gets funded even more so that there would be more screen control options such as video filters, fix the blinking, and let’s me resize the window on my computer.
