Default Procaster crashes on Mac Os 10.8.1, 2.9 Dual core CPU, 8 GB RAM...

I am runing the latest Mac OS 10.8.1 and the latest Procaster.

Every once in a while it crashes with no serious reason, besides the connection lost or slow streaming...

Please, advise!

Thanks!

PolitikaNet,

Do you receive any error messages after the crash? Can you provide the following:

Exact CPU details
Any Hardware (Camera, capture card, etc) and how it's connected
Procaster version number (open preferences, click "i" in top right-hand corner)

The Procaster version is 20.3.0M.

The CPU is 2.9 GHz Intel Core i7.

I am attaching a SONY Digital 8 DCR-TRV340E via Firewire and a ZOOM H2N mice via USB port.

No other software running, besides Dropbox, Chrome, SugarSynch and the regular processes of Mac OS 10.8.1

Yes, I get some error messages, but I ignored then. Next time I'll copy-paste it here.

Thanks for the prompt reply, though!

PolitikaNet,

A dual-core i7 is not ideal for streaming in addition to running multiple programs in the background. I would suggest closing all background applications aside from Procaster. Additionally, it may help to install the latest Mac beta, Procaster 20.3.8.

Hi again!

I can't follow. What might be the problem with the latest MacBook processor?

Otherwise, fact is that I was running some background programs, such as multi-tab google chrome browser, plus a tab with the page of my livestream channel, so it might have created some conflicts.

yet, what might be the 2.9 ghz i7 cpu?...

Thanks!

Unfortunately, I have tried all. On few events we were broadcasting using the Procaster on a freshly restarted computer with absolutely no other runing softwabe, besides some system processes. And it went on crashing. We are testing the last two versions of Procaster and I do hope there must be some solution for a MacBook with an Intel i7...

Thanks for taking time to answer!

PolitikatNet,

If you'd like to send your Procaster logs, please open a support ticket with all the information you've included in this thread. You can generate your logs by following these steps:

-Open Procaster
-Click 'Preferences' on the Procaster launch screen
-Click 'Video' tab
-Click 'Save Logs' at the bottom right of this screen

This will create a 'ProcasterLogs.zip' file on your desktop. Please attach this file in your ticket.
