Developer's Description

Jealous of Leopard's iChat Theater, but still using Tiger or Panther? Check out ShowMacster - media sharing for the rest of us.

ShowMacster is an extension to Apple's iChat which enables you to stream pictures, QuickTime movies and live screen captures during a video conference.
By adding a drawer to the video chat window, it is seamlessly integrated into iChat. You can even import a collection of your favorite pictures, icons or movies to show them instantly. By pressing a button or keyboard shortcut ShowMacster will switch from the current iSight video stream to the assigned media.
ShowMacster not only enables you to show slideshows of your pictures or video clips but also to share your actions on the screen to your opponent.
With ShowMacster's "Sketchboard" tool you are able to draw right inside the current streaming picture. Drawings (on a blank sheet or any photo) are updated live as ShowMacster streams any changes instantly.
  • stream photos, movies, sounds and screen captures during your iChat video conference
  • add files per drag & drop
  • start slideshows instantly with Quickdrop.
  • draw directly on streaming pictures
  • create as many categories as you need to manage your media files.
  • assign individual keyboard shortcuts to every single media clip
  • use ShowMacster right within iChat
  • includes English, German and French localizations
