Monitor Mode

Monitor Mode is a simple application that shows live video from a video input device, either in a window or fullscreen. It was intended for use with Epiphan VGA2USB devices, but also works with iSights and possibly other devices.

Together with a VGA2USB, you can use any Mac equipped with USB 2.0 as a monitor for another computer (e.g. your Linux server PC).


The current version is 1.0. It is available in binary (ready-to-run) and source (for modification) forms:

Note that Monitor Mode requires Mac OS X 10.4 ("Tiger") or later.


If you use Monitor Mode, I'd like to hear from you. Is the program useful to you? What features do you want added? Mail me at
