UpGrading to newer OS now webcam software won't work
« on: January 08, 2019, 06:10:25 PM »
Hi WeatherCatters
 I have been putting off upgrade the OS because i was afraid my webcam software would not work.
So i upgrade to High Sierra 1013.6 and now EvoCam will not work any more and they are out of business now.
So can any one suggest a new webcam software that will work with my Logitech 9000 webcam?
And yes EvoCam 5.0 will work but it is now complicated to use.


cheers

Randall, I don't use this but it was the only software I could find that ran on a Mac when I was looking for an Evocam replacement 3 years ago.

I just ended up processing my images and creating time-lapse video directly through WeatherCat, which works great on a one-camera setup.

Update: finally got EvoCam 5 to work as it did with version 3.7.6 but it took some searching the web to figure out how to do
With 3.7.6 you just had to check the box for time-lapse movie but with 5 it takes some doing to get it to work
I like like the way WC does it but it doesn't record anything but it is still really nice for the image it puts on my web page


cheers

Glad you were able to get EvoCam working for you! [cheer]

Not sure what you mean by "I like like the way WC does it but it doesn't record anything". I think there is a setting for how long it saves the movies. I have hourly and daily movies for the last seven days plus todays versions. I have mine auto-delete after seven days mainly to recover the disk space.

 WC doesn't let you set how often it save the image for the movie like every 2 seconds it is 100 seconds of every hour

Now I'm confused, Randall.

WC lets you select your image capture rate from every 5 seconds to every 30 minutes. Then it also lets you decide the time lapse movie length per hour, starting at 5 seconds and up.
In any case, glad you got EvoCam to work.

It lets you capture every 5 seconds but the movie output is 100 seconds of every hour I want it to capture all of it and play it back all of the 5 second images that it captured the length is not a problem even if it is 1 gig long
