 +Version 088 fixes the sign on problem introduced with the most recent Amcrest camera firmware update. The JPEG refresh cam now supports Digest authentication and so will work with Amcrest’s latest firmware and with any other device that requires that form of authentication. Unfortunately it also removes support for RTSP streams as they are no longer a part of Apple’s video support library. They will make a re-appearence in the near future in a new form.

 +Version 086 is a fix for problems storing the preferences when running High Sierra, OSX 10.13 and later.
  
 Version 080 adds reception of motion sensing and sound sensing from recent Foscam cameras. Version 080 adds reception of motion sensing and sound sensing from recent Foscam cameras.

 +  * [[http://​www.machomeautomation.com/​files/​videopitcher_088.zip|Download v3.2.4 (build 88)]] (11/​20/​2017) ​
 +  * Fix for a problem signing into Amcrest cameras with the latest firmware update. They disabled “basic” authentication and now require “Digest” authentication. This version supports Digest authentication to Amcrest cameras or any other device that requires it via the JPEG Refresh camera type.
 +  * Removed support for the RTSP stream type. Apple removed support for RTSP in their media handling libraries a long time ago but I’ve been linking in an old version to keep supporting it. Unfortunately I cannot link in both the older quick time libraries and the newer libraries that support the Digest authentication required by the newer amcrest cameras. I can re-do an RTSP stream in a future version if this is something people still need.

 +  *  [[http://​www.machomeautomation.com/​files/​videopitcher_086.zip|Download Build 86]] (11/​16/​2017) **(this version requires at least version 935 of XTension)**
 +  * Important fixes for use with OSX 10.13 High Sierra. ​
 +  * More picture size validation before decoding. Passing corrupt jpeg images to core image for decoding and processing can cause core image to hang up for extended periods of time where no other decoding can take place. This better validates that the image is probably not corrupt but doesn’t waste the CPU necessary to decode it twice to validate.

   * The Foscam Motion reception is now compatible with both the newer h264 HD Foscam Cameras and the older MJPEG Foscam cameras. The proper camera API to use will be chosen automatically when connecting to the camera. It occurs to me just now that I have not updated the text in the foscam motion window however, it still claims that a newer cgi version is needed. That is not correct and I’ll update that text in the next build.   * The Foscam Motion reception is now compatible with both the newer h264 HD Foscam Cameras and the older MJPEG Foscam cameras.

 Video pitcher can be used by itself to view and record from IP cameras but is better suited to being a video injector for Xtension and using the Web Remote as the internet viewer for the video streams and captured movies. Video Pitcher requires at least OSX 10.7 though video processing and compression can become very processor intensive. If a core image compatible GPU is present in the hardware it will be used to provide the filtering, if not it will fall back to the software renderer which will significantly limit the amount of filtering that can be done. Video pitcher can be used by itself to view and record from IP cameras but is better suited to being a video injector for Xtension and using the Web Remote as the internet viewer for the video streams and captured movies.
