Myfreecams recording - resolution limited on 64-Bit Mac?

Hi there,

I'm running the latest 64-bit beta of JMR on a Mac Catalina.

With the previous version running on a Mac Mojave, I had no problem recording MFC streams in 720p.

Now there seems to be a mitigation to 360p or so which looks kind of blurry, as you may understand.

Is there anything I can do about it? 

Change default settings to ...., maybe?

Thanks & best regards

Sorry, there  is a typo in my question 

Didn’t mean mitigation, but limitation of course.

Hi Markus,

Please try the following:

  1. Open JMR
  2. Go to: Preferences > Downloads
  3. Turn the 'Best available quality' setting ON

This should force Jaksta to capture the best quality stream being offered. Give that a try and if you can only get the 360p then it's likely because that's all Jaksta can grab from the stream.
