Camfrog Client 5.2.148 Beta (Windows) Released

Camfrog Client 5.2.148 Beta (Windows) is now available for beta testing.  This new beta version is only available to blog readers and it has not been announced anywhere else on our website.  Please report any bugs to our helpdesk or post your results here on the blog.

Download Camfrog Client 5.2.146 Beta (Windows)

This new beta version has many new features that we would like you to test.

1. Video chat privately with a friend to test out the new audio and video synchronization.  Please note the new client private video chat is incompatible with the old version, so to test this the person you are testing with also needs the new beta.

2. Pause your video in a chat room and you are now broadcasting a frozen video frame instead of just a blank white video window.  To test this join a video chat room, then pause your local video window.  If the person you are viewing is paused and using this new beta then you can see their still frozen video frame too.

3. From your contact list go to the actions/settings menus, then choose “video” to change your default video window sizes to “small” if you prefer.  Many users requested that they wanted to be able to choose small sized video windows in rooms as default with the webcam auto-organizer.  Now you can do this with the new beta version. You can also disable the webcam auto-organizer and turn on “Sticky Video Windows” if you prefer the old Camfrog 3.X video window style.

4. Video Chatting one-on-one should now work 100% of the time with the new beta version.  The old client versions could rarely fail in extreme circumstances, but after a lot of hard work we have figured out how to make this version 100% reliable.  If you find your private video chat is still failing somehow and both users are using this new beta please let us know so we can investigate.

5. If you are a free user you’ll notice when you join a room your remote video windows are now small even if the room is in “recommended” or “super” mode.  Don’t worry, you can still view large video.  Mouse over the remote video window and press the enlarge icon to make the remote video window large again.  We made this change so users with small screens can choose to see others with small video windows to save screen real estate.

There are also many other small enhancements to make the software work efficiently, and now Arabic is a language you can choose during installation.

Important: Please test carefully and email us or post comments if you find any problems with this new release.  Thank you for your help.

    After launching Camfrog program, the error message appears and says “XFrog subsystem failure. Upgrade your video drivers and DirectX” then, I upgraded latest DirectX version of August 2008. It still keep same error message. Do I need to upgrade my video drivers too???

    Thanks

    XFrog subsystem failure. Upgrade your video drivers and DirectX

    I did this and it still not working 🙁

  3. insanely_cold

    When viewing some cams in the Camfrog room i get the error

    “Video failed because user is using an old software version”

    So there’s certain cams i can’t view in the room and one-2-one until they have upgraded?

  4. 4nthony

    That 75% usage is alot lower than the 5.0 and 5.1
    What i have noticed is that super and clasic rooms run realy well and you can open alot of cams and no lag,
    but still recomended seems to have the problem.
    other than that its working great for me and im running vista 😛
    one thing thow we have had alot of users complaining ther cams dont pause. its abit of confusion with the freez cam image i think.

    Anyway good work keep it up and i do agree where is the linux version of camfrog cause soon as that is available Good Bye Microsoft hello UBUNTU

    Seems to work ok so far with Windows Seven Kernel 6.1 Build 6801
    No issues with compatibility either. Notification Icons on Win7 are 1-click to launch not 2. There is a new animation that makes the 2-click launch a little buggy and can take several attempts to get the program to show. Will need updating.

  10. Yeh GreaT Version

    BuT I have Some Bugs to report

    – 70 percent >>>CPU 😮 Very High :s

    – We can’t Talk To A person With old version :s

    – <<<Waiting For The Linux Version 🙂

    —Happy 5th Year Camfrog 🙂

  11. I’m on windows xp and intel p4 2.4 512 ram using the beta and i just noticed a huge increase in the CPU 85 at most

  12. mykeeX

    Well I installed 5.2 on 4 PC and only had problems with 1, Video was messed up, looked like Rain. I updated my Video drivers.. and still couldnt fix it.. I downgraded back to 5.1 (5.1.129) and all problems were fixed.

    I’ll reinstall it again and keep you posted.

    Also noticed CPU and Ram tend to increase with the more cams i pull up.. and by Pausing my Cam tends to bring it down temporarly.
    I had 24 cams up in small window size, my CPU% was at 95% and Mrm Usage was at 70.640 K
    Had a total of 27 processes running on WinXP Pro sp3

  13. DarkSnow (Mike)

    ok this version is faster no problems 🙂
    1. for intell users no problems on amd go amd 😛

    2. intel has always had problems with programs made in visual studio or any variants of the microsoft visual runtime enviorment yes even quad cores run at 100% so intell just sucks

    3. intel can not handel camfrogs needs amd can im on a single core

    4. no problems with viewing people on old versions of camfrog

    to me this is a great emprovement for camfrog

    STOP USING INTEL mmk understood 🙂
    oh and dell users there tech support is good because the product sucks 😀

    Camfrog: Pro
    Processer: amd athlon x64 2.20Ghz 3700+
    Ram: 512 x 2 = 1024mb or 1gb
    O/S: Windows XP Pro SP3

  14. Festler

    test it and works great on CPU Typ Mobile DualCore Intel Core 2 Duo T5250, 1500 MHz (9 x 167) with 4mb ram xp sp3 and
    Intel GL960/GM965 Chipset – Graphics Controller with
    Intel GMA X310 and Directx 9.0c is installed
    no problems
    but my question is where is the linux CF client????
    i think the time is right now for this
    happy birthday CF

  15. Hi guys, awesome job camshare have done with this build, peer to peer video between beta clients works all of the time i have tried, and now works with people it never did before.

    as others have mentioned, i notice the high CUP usage, even when the client is idle (ie not connected to a room or in a p2p) its constantly using 50% of the CPU.

    In a room that jumps to 75-100%. Even with only one or two cams open.

    this is based on a Core 2 Duo T7200 @ 2Ghz with 3Gb Ram and Nvidia 8600M GS

    Also loving the Camfrog Mobile beta, nice work, needs video and audio support (even just p2p) to seperate it from the host of other instant messengers avaliable for Windows Mobile.

    .148 is much MUCH better than .146 for me, but I lose my cam after a while staying in one room. Leaving the room and returning fixes the problem.

  17. thugluv69

    i get errors when i run camfrog i get After launching Camfrog program, the error message appears and says …. of the microsoft visual runtime errors and it crashes my camfrog

  18. TX2SEA

    I recently downloaded version 5.2.169. I am no longer having difficulty establishing a private session. However, now the picture quality in the private windows is very poor. It appears to have lines running up/down/sideways. Is anyone else having this issue. The quality in the previous version was excellent. Anyone else having this problem???

  19. johnnynice02

    I downloaded the 5.2 version and the imaging appears as digital static. Any suggestions?

  20. dylan

    Will test the linux version – don’t have Windows on any machines at home.

  21. nikhil

    I am a camfrog pro user with5.2 beta .others can t see my video.it shows video not uploading.how can i rectify this problem.I am using core 2 duo processor,1.83 GHz, 0.99GB Ram

  22. sage30

    ok what the point of auto call with password if the othere person still has to push play makes no sense i like the old auto call syteam were it opened the cam with out the othere person having to push play why else have it ?

  23. I love the new 5.3 version of camfrog I do only one minor in this version i would like to point out.

    I am a frequent user of the One on one Feature due to several reasons
    1 of them is when i leave for a holiday i like to Call my own computer at home using the 1 on 1 feature so i can look into my own home from a distance… now with the New version of camfrog it seems when i Autocall my own computer the autoreply still works yet the camera has to be unpaused by the other side.. Which makes it not possible for me no more to go on a holiday and use camfrog as some sort of a Protection feature where it always gave me a safe feeling just to be able to check into my own home very sad to see that one go…
    I think in case of autocall with password protection its
    already our choise to limit who can auto call you or not for me to actually have to Hit the Play button means the person cannot verify if i am there…not while using a live fee.

    Like said i am for one truly sad to see this part of auto call go hope the old set up of Autocall can be returned

  24. hmm i dont know i just want to meeet someone here i maind that in this page i want to have some frends of another place okay see you
