"Great app"

December 04, 2003  |  By jreffner

 |  Version: SquidCam 1.5.1

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
It works great with Panther on my end and XP on my Pal's end. Not many video conference apps work this well and are this easy to use. Rocks with my iSight and the picture looks better with this than it does with iChat. Firewire cams really beat USB ones any day. There is nothing wrong with this application. The trick is simply to convince your friends to use it as well.

Try it and then buy it if you like it. We did.

"It does work very well Mac-to-Mac"

November 27, 2003  |  By scubamac

 |  Version: SquidCam 1.5

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I have been using this (various versions) for about a year and it works really well (at least, Mac-to-Mac). The audio quality does not degrade like iChat AV over time. Setup is a bit more complicated but once you get it right, it is as good as it gets. I saved tons of money on long-distance phone calls using this and I am very satisfied with it. <p>As for Mac-to-PC communication, who wants to chat with Windows users anyay? ;)

"Works great"

November 26, 2003  |  By mlegrand_dotmac

 |  Version: SquidCam 1.5

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I am using this program for several months with no problem. I'm conversing on a daily basis with my father using squidcam on Windows XP (while I am using Mac OS X 10.3) with no problem whatsoever: sound is perfect, webcam is working. And it never has crashed on me.

Technical support was very prompt and helpful to help me opening the right port on my firewall: I highly recommend this program!

"~ Pass The Lemon"

Deep fry that SquidlyCam and pass the lemon my way when you are done! Crunch. Crunch. Stomp. Stomp.

The Best way to avoid the hassle and confusion is simply not to play. Call the exterminator our computer has been infested by the beta squidcam.

Want to play a nice game of chess.

"LET'S BE CLEAR SQUID"

July 24, 2003  |  By LELNYLA

 |  Version: SquidCam 1.5b60

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I am not sure what you are talking about in your responses Squid, but let me be clear that the only thing that I can say with certainty is that your software does not work on my systems. It cannot connect to others with squidcam and the picture of me on my screen is blurry at best.

I use windows and I wanted to connect with other who use Macs. I could not connect to anyone.

"I CAN SETTLE IT ONCE AND FOR ALL"

July 24, 2003  |  By Computer Guru 1

 |  Version: SquidCam 1.5b60

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I HAVE READ THE E-MAILS AND TRIED THE PRODUCT IN VARIOUS SETTINGS AND ON VARIOUS COMPUTERS. AND, BASED UPON MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE, I CANNOT MAKE SQUIDCAM COMMUNICATE WITH OTHER COMPUTERS OUTSIDE THE NETWORK. PERIOD. END OF STORY.

IN FAIRNESS, THE SQUIDCAM DOES DISPLAY MY OWN PICTURE ON THE SCREEN OF MY COMPUTER. OTHER THAN THAT, IN MY OPINION IT WAS A USELESS WASTE OF SPACE ON MY COMPUTER. TRASHED. GOODBYE.

PERHAPS, IN THE FUTURE, THE SQUIDCAM WILL WORK. BUT, I AM CERTAINLY NOT A FORTUNE TELLER. WE CAN ONLY HOPE THAT APPLE'S ICHAT A/V PROGRAM WILL BECOME CROSS-PLATFORM IN THE NEAR FUTURE.

"PERPLEXED!"

July 24, 2003  |  By TerJul

 |  Version: SquidCam 1.5b60

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I can't believe it! The squidsoft people have complaints from people that their software cannot be configured on computers and they have the nerve to tell you that "connections have been made successfully over here . . . " The problem with that comment is that we all don't live at the lonely squidsoft server. So, I am pleased that your software suppossedly connects successfully over there at the squidsoft server farm, but it has never done so over here or on the computers of my friends and family - the place where it matters most to me and my family.

"Bottom Line: It's Simply Doesn't Work!"

July 24, 2003  |  By LELNYLA

 |  Version: SquidCam 1.5b60

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
You can dilly dally around and write long winded statements to hide the truth about the squidcam product, but the bottom line is this: IT SIMPLY DOES NOT WORK! If it works for some, they are probably all sitting around a table at squidsoft with a direct connection to each other. However, even in that case, I would guess the video and audio would be distorted.

Don't argue about it and Don't blame the user or their systems. Instead, recognize that real people with new and highly sophisticated systems are have problems getting your software to work at all. The solution would be to recognize the problems with your beta sofware and remedy them to make a final version of software that works. If you can't, that's okay, too. Just admit it.
