[ANSWERED] EpocCam - Capture Camera to Movie
Thanks everyone - Mark, that work around might give me something to try on Thursday and I'll also check out the NDISyphon app.

I've been using NDI on Windows for a while. It's great.

I confirm Epoccam stopped developpement ( and i experienced crashes on IOS ... ), and sound input never worked
@TimBrunsden As I recently acquired a relatively current generation phone I've tried a number of mobile phone camera apps (NewTek NDI, NDICam, AirBeam, Epocam HD) with Isadora 3. Whereas most apps performed impressively at 640x360, I was surprised at how well AirBeam/AirBeam Pro combo performers well with my setup. Attached is a rundown of my experience.
thank you for sharing your experience. How did you connect everything? Was the computer connected with ethernet or WIFI as well? I did tests with a few apps and I've found that even the phone and os version on it made a huge difference. In one test the iPhone 4 with an older OS performed better than an iPhone 6s with a newer one. So I guess this all can be very different from situation to situation. But your list is a very good reference point.

This is my go-to
you're welcome. I created an adhoc wireless network (channels 36 and 40 alternately) on the mac and connected the phone directly to it. No wifi or ethernet so no internet at the same time. Going through internet/tv box router gave poor results. I guess if one routes phone signal through appropriate/dedicated wireless network gear the data rates would be improved.
You are right about variables of phone/iOS making huge differences. I previously tried with an iPhone 5c/iOS10/macOS sierra and that didn't work too well.
@msanii wow - thanks for taking the time to do this - this is really useful.
you are welcome. Needed to figure out what could work for me
