Q : What do I need to do to setup and use iCam and iCamSource?

A : The steps are:

1) Download iCam to your Android device and the iCamSource to your computer.

2) Start the iCamSource, and choose your USB / FireWire / Built-In webcam from the Video and Audio drop-down lists. If you are connecting to an Ethernet / Wi-Fi camera, simply enter the camera's MJPEG/JPEG URL along with the camera's login and password.

3) Enter a Login and Password of your choosing (no need to register or create an account, but make sure they are not easily guessed), and click the Start button. iCamSource is now setup and running.

4) Start iCam on your Android device and enter the same Login and Password from Step 3.

5) Tap Done. iCam is now setup and running, and should connect to the iCamSource running on your computer.

Tap a video thumbnail to Zoom In, press Back to Zoom Out.

Repeat Steps 2 & 3 for any additional computers and Steps 4 & 5 for any additional Android devices, being sure to use the same Login and Password for all of them.

Visit the "Getting Started" section of the iCam Help pages for more information: http://skjm.com/icam/help/

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 : 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 : 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.

I first used this in 2011. Still on my computer now I've read downloaded it on my Samsung S21 Ultra. I don't understand why any of these other reviews claim to have problems. I have no permissions granted and I'm able to plug in my password and start remote viewing on my phone to my pc webcam. It even said stated possibly not working because of compatibility as if it was for a previous version of Android but it works just fine. Recording motion is a bunch of images no video or sound.

Love this app, been using it for years both home and work security. A little tricky to get used to in the beginning, worth the time to understand it, very easy once you know how, all the professional adjustments one would want. Excellent value

Learned about this app from an online site and despite the low rating decided to give it a try. Paid for it and followed all instructions to set it up on my phone and pc. Could not get it to work for anything. Waste of time and $5. Definitely needs to be removed from the Play Store. If the developer happens to read this....give me back my damn money.
