Here you can find history of recent versions of iPi Recorder.

iPi Recorder has built-in auto update functionality. Auto update feature is configured so that checks for update are made once per day. It helps to reduce the start time of the application. If you want to update ASAP — you can use the Check for Update button on home screen.

Note that both of these features require Internet connection. Alternatively (in case of troubles with auto update), you can download and run the updated installation program from direct link.

 N E W    F E A T U R E S:

  • Improved performance with Logitech C922 cameras.
  • Workflow for opening a record for playback from Recording Results dialog is improved. Instead of HOME button, there is a BACK button to return to recording without losing previous recording state (like evaluated background).
  • Option to mark centers of camera frames on SETUP screen. This may help with positioning of cameras.
  • Statistics overlay control is hidden the same way as other controls when collapsed to not cover the bottom area of a frame.
  • Asking confirmation on closing the application when recording is in process.
