Fantastic

Its easy to set up and works over wifi or usb. The market for webcams is pretty booty right now and this makes my smartphone an even more versatile tool than it already is. My phone's camera was able to work with nvidia broadcast on a 30 series card so I got to use the cool features of it over my video calls. I do wish there was more quality options for things like 60FPS or at least 1440p video capture since some video call apps can use that or even 4k just because then recording videos using a phone and Nvidia broadcast features becomes possible. Being able to do some editing like simply enabling low light mode and HDR on my phone would go a long way in improving the app and making products like the Brio and Kiyo Pro superfluous. I gotta admit I never liked elgato because they reminded me of apple for streamers but after getting a wave 3 mic and I saw how open the system was to use with software not from elgato really change my view of them and after trying this out and seeing its interoperability with broadcast, I am blown away. I am excited and looking forward to future solutions from elgato that can be used for more than just streamers and youtubers.

When it works, it's excellent. But the "when" is a problem.

I purchased this app in Jan 2021 the pro version. I came across it when I searched Google for apps that let me use my iPhone (SE 2nd G) as a video camera for my WebEx and Zoom Meetings. I am using a Mac Mini M1 chip.Initially, it would not connect by Wi-Fi or USB. When I tried to use it with WebEx, it could not be found as a video system. I tried using it with Mediasite via the desktop app and it worked, and after that, I was able to use it with WebEx directly via the USB. The clarity was excellent, the switch from landscape to portfolio mid-video was seamless. I was able to use it with Zoom. Only via USB, but I did not mind this. The controls are simple and I like the options to reflect the image. Since February 22, it stopped working again with WebEx. Doing the same thing it did when I first downloaded the app: WebEx can't find it as a video system. As I write this, I realize I should try it with Zoom and Mediasite again. But, even if that trips the application to work again, it seems there's something faulty going on. I did stop it from the Activity Monitor, restarted my phone, and looked at update and release notes, etc.I haven't reached out to technical support yet, but I find it disappointing to read so many recent reviews that speak to no help from customer support.

Best purchase of an app over 99 cents

Usually after I’ve purchased an app that’s priced over $0.99, I’m sorely disappointed. But not this app. I have an iPhone 11 and a Mac, running Catalina OS. The setup was simple but there are something you should know. The instructions make it sound like all you have to do is download the app and a driver for your Mac or PC, but what they failed to mention is that you need to download the viewer for your Mac or PC as well. I googled and found their website, which is where I found the viewer. After downloading the needed app, viewer and driver, I connected to WiFi and it worked much better than I expected. No setup. Just turn on the cam app, startup Zoom or whatever webcam client you use; select EpocCam as your camera, and voila you’re in business. I’m able to use my iPhone wirelessly as my webcam, which I can place ianywhere that gives me the most flattering angle. I love it. I think you will too.

The Most Disappointing App I’ve Ever Bought

This is the worst app I’ve ever spent money on and it cost $8!!! The app worked okay for about a week and then became useless. The app doesn’t start half the time, it’s incredibly laggy, and it often freezes in the middle of recordings/streams. I can’t even get it to work with a USB cable anymore which is supposed to be the most stable connection. You can not use this app for any professional purposes! You’d drop out of meetings and ruin recordings constantly. There are barely any customization settings in the app and little technical support. I have so many other complaints but enough energy to list them all. Do a Google search for EpocCam and you’ll find a ton of other complaints. I truly believe the company has found a way to fudge their review ratings because I see complaints similar to mine all over the Internet. The app literally doesn’t work, you can’t possibly give it more than a 1-star review. This is perhaps the worst purchase I’ve made this year.

I’ve been using this app for quite some time now

Kinoni has apparently have had it with my ducking and dodging the questions and have voluntold me to rate and review (I’m kidding, though, right?) — and fair enough, I’ve been using this thing way too much for way too long to not have some opinion on this product. Granted, the only time I’m asked is when my dedicated webcams fall short and Old Faithful EpocCam picks up the slack and then leaves the others comparatively static. I didn’t know if this app was the bee’s knees of “turn my phone into a webcam”apps, not just because I never could figure out how to use EpocCam as a proper internet webcam device, but also the lack of parameters or expecting much better resolution. But it’s the only app that has remained in any use from any cam/phone apps I had tested; only EpocCam is left. It’s grounded. And reliable. And when it’s acting abnormally, it’s a small pool of suspects with a small pool of solutions.**UPDATE** I found out that HD no longer compatible with EpocCam Viewer!

Glitchy

UPDATED ORIGINALLY TWO STARI’m using an iPhone 6S plus and a MacBook Pro with EpocCam HD and Zoom. This thing is glitchy. Connecting to the Zoom/Mac is iffy (I’m in Zoom setup), and when I switch away from EpocCam, the connection is totally lost. I have to kill the app on the phone, restart the app, switch Zoom away from EpocCam. Then when I switch back to EpocCam I am reconnected.When I start a Zoom meeting, the connection is lost (I get the circling segments on both phone and Mac). I have to leave the meeting, kill the app on the phone, and re-enter the meeting to get video.UPDATED April 22 - THREE STARSeems that most of the problems I listed above are caused by 2 things - spotty wifi at my house and the app’s poor USB support. When I cured most of the wifi problems, most of the problems were reduced or eliminated. Even though the app connection setting is “automatic” and that the iPhone has been 100% connected by USB, the latency and freezing and dropped video problems continue. It takes “forever” (5 to 10 seconds) for the camera to reconnect and I get a “connected by wifi” notification. So, USB support is nonexistent or glitchy, but it is mostly usable for Zoom when high quality video is less important.SECOND UPDATE. BACK TO 2 STARSWith wifi turned off and only the USB connection and connection set to USB only, it never connects.

App works with PC....Mac Users Beware!!!!

If you are not tech savvy, do not try this app. I gave the app 5 stars only because it works great with PC. IT DOES NOT WORK WITH MACS!!! I tried the free version on my work PC with the USB cable and it worked great. Used it with Zoom and Microsoft’s teams. So I bought the paid version to get the better quality. Once again, worked great on the PC. Got home and downloaded the OS driver to my MacBook, pull up zoom for a meeting, and nothing. Went to the website and found out that it currently doesn’t work with Mojave and they are currently working on a solution. It would be nice if they would put that in the description of the app. I’ve wasted $8 on this. I have parallels on my computer so I’m going to put zoom into Windows and download the windows drivers and see if it works. I’ll update after.Update:I downloaded everything to Windows on parallels and used it for a zoom meeting today. It worked fine for the most part. For some reason the app timed out on the phone a couple of times which was not good. But it did work. I have another zoom meeting tomorrow so I’m going to make some more adjustments to see if I can clean up the process a bit. Just to repeat myself, if you are not tech savvy, I don’t recommend this app. There are too many moving parts to the process.

great app!

with the considerable increase in webcam price over this past year, this app has been my webcam for necessary online meetings, and it’s worked great. through my iphone 8, it provides a clear image with relatively low latency, an image, mind you, that is miles better than that $100 Logitech C920 that has been the webcam standard. i have never experimented with grabbing audio from my phone too; but i have never had issues with audio from airpods syncing up. some of the new, experimental additions such as an automatic green screen filter or background blur are certainly there, but very rough. i’d recommend if you want to alter your background, leave it to Zoom, their greenscreen masking tech is a lot more refined, and can be used on the video feed coming from Epocam anyways!though and though, this is a great app, and one ai would recommend to anyone in need of a webcam, or a better webcam than your integrated laptop one.

Worked great...for a week

I was so happy to have the opportunity to use an old phone as a WebCam rather than purchase a new one and the free version of EpocCam seemed to work so well, I decided to purchase EpocCam HD to use the microphone. It was working great with no problems for about a week and then it quit working with no logical reason. One day I used it in the morning for a meeting with no problem, and for another meeting in the afternoon all I got was the spinning circle of connecting.. I have tried rebooting everything, re-downloading drivers, reinstalling the app, using a different device. With the other device I finally got the camera to work again, but it is not working with Zoom anymore and I get a “failed to start the video camera” message even though it’s “connected.” I think I have now spent more time troubleshooting it then I actually spent using it when it worked. Rather disappointing. By the way, to those complaining about not being able to use the front facing camera without a review, it’s not really required. I had been using the front facing camera since day one despite not having submitted a review of this app until now.

Using for twitch streaming

I started with the free version of this app. The free version works just as well as the paid version. I have not noticed any difference between the camera quality or the Wi-Fi quality between the two apps. However, my biggest complaint with the free version is that every so often a full screen ad will pop up on my phone that I have to click an X button to remove. This is frustrating to have to do on stream as my viewers see my finger clearly click the screen, even though the ad does not disrupt the video. With the paid version, there are no ads so it is not an issue. Additionally for anyone looking to use the front facing camera, you need to write a review for the app first. However, you can get around this by clicking write a review in the app and then simply hitting cancel on the review and it will still allow you to use the front facing camera. If you’re not worried about the ads inside the app, I would recommend the free version but if you are using this for any sort of streaming service I would get the paid one.
