Web site managers may want the ability to broadcast video directly to the Internet. EvoCam for Mac allows users to stream video or save it for later use, all in a well-designed interface that is easy to use.
EvoCam for Mac offers a free trial version with a 15-day usage limit. The full version costs $30 to unlock. The program downloaded quickly and came with a separate instruction file, which was relatively easy to follow. The program menu was clear and immediately brought up a screen for video capture. This had options for recording or streaming directly to a Web site. The user can enter server information for the streaming upload. There are also security selections for the camera, which would be an excellent option for those who are using the program to monitor home activity from remote places. Features are also available to start recording when certain actions occur, such as time periods or when sounds are detected. Additional, albeit limited, options exist for adjusting the video output picture, including things like opacity, among a few others. This menu can be hidden once the desired settings are entered. The output video looked as it does when using native webcam applications.
For those who want additional streaming and recording webcam functions, EvoCam for Mac works well and even adds some functions over native applications.
Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of EvoCam for Mac 4.2.1.
