The following review written by one of the Software Informer contributors applies to version 1.4
iCamSource helps you stream video from your webcam to an iPhone. iCamSource is the server-side application that allows the iPhone app iCam to show user's video streamed from a Windows or Mac OS X computer.
The server application is absolutely free, but the iPhone app itself is $4.99 at the iPhone App store. In this latest version of iCamSource, the developers have rolled out a nice feature: you can connect to your iCamSource from any modern javascript-enabled web browser, which opens the door for easy monitoring when you are away from home.

When you have installed the server application and the iPhone app, you will be able to start streaming video from your webcams to the iPhone. iCam supports up to 4 cameras (web cameras, IP cameras, DV cameras) simultaneously. Besides streaming video to the iPhone directly, iCam can also record video when it detects motion on your cameras. You can tweak the sensitivity levels, to increase or decrease how much movement will trigger the streaming. The application can also be configured to warn you through your iPhone when it detects movement through push notifications, and it can additionally record the movement to your computer. The recordings do not quite imply video. In fact, iCamSource takes a series of snapshots when it senses movement and saves those images to your hard drive. You can then go through them to see what happened. iCamSource does not record audio, but you can hear everything on your iPhone.

Pros

  • Very customizable.
  • Records images.
  • Support for up to 4 cameras.
  • Zero configuration.
  • Accessible from iPhone and web browsers.

Cons

  • Does not record audio or video, only images.
 

What's new in version 2.7

Added support for the High Resolution and Proxy Support functionalities included in iCam 2.3 (iOS). (Android support is coming soon.)
- The iCamSource Preferences window now un-hides itself when a user attempts to re-launch the iCamSource when it is already running.
 

Publisher's description

The iCamSource is a free computer application that streams your webcam video and audio to iCam. This app is very easy to use: 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.
