EpocCam Pro is actually a great product and a great value for the price. Dependent on the strength of you phone, EpocCam makes it easier for you to simply connect your phone with your pc and have great quality video conferences and or recordings.
Up until a few days ago it’s really been going great. No complaints at all however, three days a go all of a sudden it started failing on me. Although I could perfectly run it on my discord while recording on OBS and casually running softwares such as Audacity, now I can’t even run the normal app without a horrible just nasty 7-10 seconds lag. Don’t even ask me how it looks when running all the other programs along with it. It’s really unusable to the point that I’m actually wondering if it ever really worked. Idk what the problem is. Searching for it online I’ve only seen people complaining about it on special forums. No one talked about this on any YouTube review or online article. I haven’t found a solution yet (I’ll surely update this if I eventually do) and most of the complaints were from earlier version too. But since I’m not the only one facing this issue, the problem makes it unusable for me and no solution is available out there (at least that I haven’t tried) I’d sag it’s very frustrating.
Three for the three weeks it worked
I have an iPhone 11. Used the free app and it worked great, but I believe it was with Kononi, something like that. I purchased the app to use with my Windows 10 PC and cannot get the phone to connect. I did everything they suggested to troubleshoot, still nothing. I’m at a lost. My PC is compatible and so is my phone so not sure why the phone won’t connect. I downloaded itunes, downloaded the 35 something for compatibility, they have the same wireless connection, I reinstalled, rebooted, nothing.♀️♀️ It gets a 3 star because I know it works, just not for me. Any other ideas would be helpful, especially since I’ve already paid for the product.
I started using this back in May 2019. I upgraded and have been mostly satisfied until recently. I had trouble keeping the connection and have worked with the company. Recently, it has become very unreliable. It discontents to the black spinning circle several times in an hour. I teach yoga via zoom, so adjusting it is not possible. Regardless if I use a usb connect through iTunes or use WiFi, I have the same problems. What is odd, is that certain days or time of day it works fine others I can not keep a stable connection for a few minutes. I tried to reach customer service again, but the bot gave me the same advice I have been using.
When I first downloaded the EpocCam app (free version) I was thrilled. It seemed like it was going to work great as an additional camera on zoom. I decided to upgrade to the pro for the added features but the app only gave me a settings choice for changing the quality. After using the pro app the real time became extremely slow-10 second delay. I’m so confused I lowered the quality but it made no difference in the lag. It is also extremely hard to troubleshoot this app.. I can’t figure out how to fix the quality. If it’s possible I’m going to ask for a refund.. I definitely don’t get what I paid for
The free app worked as advertised. Decided to purchase the pro version to be able to utilize the 2x feature and higher video quality. The pro version does not transmit color. It will only show up in OBS as black and white or with a green chroma. It’s random every time I connect as to which it will be. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the app on my phone and the drivers on my PC numerous times with the same result. I am connected via USB and have tried troubleshooting with multiple USB lightning wires. Do not purchase this app for an iPhone8+.
I bought the pro version so that I could use the microphone on my iPhone as the audio input. Mic would not work with my Windows 10 laptop. I still have Windows 8 running on an old desktop and the iPhone mic worked fine for that.
The built in mic works fine on my Win 10 laptop. Also downloaded Iriun Webcam app to my iPhone and the mic & video on that app work just fine with my Win 10 laptop. So I will be using Iriun for now - wish I had found Iriun app first as it is free (including mic!) so I could have saved myself $8.
For anyone looking to get a WebCam and spend Up to $300 I recommend this app for cheap cost of eight dollars plus the cost of a tripod usually another eight dollars. This will give you better quality than most Webcam depending on your phone. The $8-$16 upgrade will be worth it for 90% of the people out there. The only thing that shouldn’t matter to most individuals I wish the app allowed for lighting adjustment or a color correction. If they end this I would consider a day at five stars. Please edit more customization Elgato
This app looks great for about a day, and then problems start creeping in. I have a new PC with a decent processor, an iPhone 11, and a steady 100 mb connection. This app cannot make use of any of it. On higher quality settings it lags by 15-20 seconds, microphone has never worked properly, and I get random black and white image in zoom. If the free version is working for you, great. Keep it that way and don’t pay for the full version. I will gladly update and recommend if it every works close to properly.
This app has many good features like auto select for wifi and usb. The picture quality is great. It would be a 5 star app if not for the constant disconnecting. I use a Mac and finally found a possible solution. I found a YouTube video that suggests running QuickTime in the background while using whatever other app such as Zoom. I tested it and it seems to work for at least 15 minutes. You would think that the developers should be able to solve this issue. Please do! It will be a great app then.
While the principle works in practice, the amount of tearing I’m experiencing from the video feed and lag... I’m frustrated to say the least. Yes, the quality of the video when it actually works is great, however, the issues I mentioned make it pointless to use. I can’t imagine it’s my devices either as I have a nearly maxed out MBP 16” along with an iPhone 12 Pro with a brand new usb c to lightning cable.
Please Elgato, please make this not tear and lag as badly as it does.
