Ratings and Reviews
Not worth 20 dollars
Honestly, the quality didn’t seem all that great. It wasn’t horrible per se but it wasn’t at a level that would allow me to say I would use this as a video source.
Sitting in one place, with the phone sitting on the desk, there were obvious dropped frames between my phone and the receiving end. The AP I was using was less than 5 feet away and is an Enterprise grade wireless network designed and optimized for streaming audio/video.
All that said, the app does do what it says in that you can use your iPhone’s camera in different production scenarios.
App works great with TriCaster mini
I purchased this app so I can use mobile devices as additional video camera sources. I’m using a TriCaster mini HD-4 with Advanced Edition software. This app must be used on the 5 gigahertz band on my router. It will not work on 2.4 gigahertz band. On my iPad I only get 4:3 aspect ratio. There is no option to switch to 16:9 in this app. That is why I give it only 4 stars. The camera app that is standard with the iPad 9.7” will switch to 16:9 with a double tap on the screen. All of the other features work very well with this app. Newtek needs to update the app so it can switch to 16:9. When I receive the video on the TriCaster it is 4:3 and doesn’t fill the 16:9 input screen. So I have a black vertical band on each side of the picture. I like the app, it is a great way to get some very unique camera shots.
Worked w xsplit , but 20$= NO OPTIONS, NO UPDATES, and uses 30mbit for SD?! 56mbit for 720p??
This app actually works, and I got a high-quality video stream to Xsplit, from my iPhone 7 plus w iOS 10, to xsplit on win7.
The only thing keeping this from a five star rating, is that (for a 20$ app!!) there are absolutely ZERO options to set/change in the app.... For example you should be able to lower the frame rate, or the quality/res, or something to reduce the bandwidth utilization... with these type of options this could actually be a functional useful tool/app.
BUT WHAT THE?? 32 mbit of actual throughput being used for a SD video stream w audio disabled!?!? ... if I tap the HD option, the bandwidth utilization across my Wi-Fi AP was a constant 50 to 57 Mbit ... of course you are going to have drop soon as they start moving away from their asses enterprise he's receiving a consistent 60 actually throughput TCP stream while the user moves around (we were testing this in a open air convention center venue too btw).
Really a waste of great potential here...
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
