Does not yet support all cameras Evo 3 did
As mentioned last week, Evological has completely re-written and re-designed EvoCam 4 to be a modern all-Cocoa application, now requiring Mac OS X 10.6 or higher. The webcam software now features H.264 video with AAC audio, as well as RTSP-over-HTTP and HTTP live streaming using HTML5, allowing EvoCam broadcasts to be viewed on mobile devices such as the iPhone and iPad without the need to install a viewer app. The program can also be used to set up networked cameras.
EvoCam works with a variety of third-party webcams (though due to its re-written status, version 4.0 does not yet support all the cameras that v3.x did) to allow users to publish a web-accessible page with streaming video. It can also view and record network cameras, control home security systems with motion sensors and create time-lapse movies.
The new version features Actions, pre-set tasks that can be combined and triggered when certain actions occur. Actions can set a webcam grab to be published to a web server via FTP, or activate recording automatically when motion or sound are detected among other tasks. The new version does not yet support audio streaming over RTSP, but this may be restored in future updates.
EvoCam 4 costs $30, but is a free upgrade for users of EvoCam v3.6.9 or later. Users of earlier versions of EvoCam can upgrade for $10. A free 15-day trial is also available.
