  1. Add HD support

    I have the Logitech Pro Stream camera, which is capable of recording videos with resolution up to 1920x1080 with 30FPS framerate. Your app supports resolution only up to 1600x1200, and framerate up to 25FPS. And even if choose maximum available resolution, there’s no 25FPS, more like 5-10 - videos look like slideshow. Other webcam-dependent apps (OBS, Quicktime, PhotoBooth) work fine even with full HD resolution. Fix needed.

      • improve

        the app doesn't set my mind @ rest as i hoped it would.

        i dont have a recording delay on, but there has been a delay on recording me leaving,

        instead of seeing as i first come into view of the camera, it has shown me as I'm almost out of its view.

        it would be good if i could record me leaving & then record only/any motion until my return.

        often i return to find a large number of clips that have no content. i assume this is because the daylight changes & clouds etc - then u say…

          • Make it possible to view more than one camera at a time.

            I like the dedicated camera window. but it would be even better if you could open more than one of those at a time.

            • to be able to start in "hidden" mode

              I would love to be able to start Periscope Pro in hidden mode so I don't have to press command-h everytime.

                • this app is awesome the way it is but what if...

                  make a iPhone app capable of seeing what the macbook computer camera is seeing live using wifi. also make it happen to be capable of recording audio and video and being able to either just view whats happening in real time. and or record the feed.

                      • Make an ALARM MODE in the app.

                        Allow for an ALARM MODE that would sound and alarm tone to let the subject at hand know he or she has been noticed and to exit the area.

                          • Remember clips folder!

                            Every time I open the app, I have to reset the clips folder location (a folder within my Downloads folder) because it has reverted to the default location.

                            Since I don’t see any other complaints about this, I’m assuming it’s a glitch in my system. But I’ve already tried deleting the pref file, and then reinstalled the app.

                            • Add remote live and recorded viewing by web browser or iOS app.

                              Should be able to view live feed, and review motion-triggered clips, delete clips, etc. Should not require subscription or use of external server, although it is OK to offer that as a convenience option. Ideally should support modern HTML5 web-streaming. This would allow web interface in addition to app interface. iOS app would be nice also, though. Document port forwarding needed.

                                  I opened Periscope yesterday before leaving the house, and it’s been open about 22 hours.

                                  In that time it has racked up 1920 connection attempts thus far.

                                    I want to use Periscope as a cheap home security camera. I don't want a lot of video of me using my Mac. Maybe detect Mac in use by keyboard/mouse activity, when I'm logged in, or when Mac is not sleeping.

                                      • keep selected clip selected and visible after viewing video in full screen.

                                        Right now, after full screen viewing, i have to search for the just viewed video selected in the long list of videos on the right since it is not in the visible area anymore. Very hard to get back to the selection especially when there is a long list.
