Live Cams Pro 4.1 is now being alpha-tested

Live Cams Pro 4.1 is now being alpha-tested (internal testing only). We have removed FFMPEG (the open-source H.264 decoder software) in the hopes that we can stop the random crashes seen while viewing Foscam H.264 cameras. This has been happening for nearly 2 years and we have now found a way to avoid using this somewhat unstable software. iOS8 users will soon be able to view their Foscam HD cameras for long durations without crashes, and with lower battery consumption and much less lag on the video stream.

This solution requires iOS8, but we will continue to offer FFMPEG decoding on iOS7 devices. Internally the software will detect which iOS version it is running on and it will automatically use FFMPEG for iOS7 and avoid it on iOS8.

We are currently running test devices with 5 Foscam cameras on the thumbnail screen at once, all using HD H.264 streams (main stream). The tests have been running smoothly for 10 hours and we aim to reach 48 hours before we shut them down. Test devices include 9826W, 9821P, 9821 V1, Fosbaby 2014, 9805W.

Live Cams Pro 4.0.4 is still not under review by Apple, although we hope to see them start this any day now. It has been waiting for them for 7 days as of today.
