QuickTime on Windows

Recently the United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team issued Alert (TA16105-A), which recommends Windows users uninstall Apple QuickTime from their computers. Unfortunately ArraySync for Windows requires QuickTime to function. While we are working on a successor to ArraySync that uses native Windows video decoding (no QuickTime) it is not available at this time. We hope to have this […]

Windows 10… and yes I’m still here!

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted to this blog. Windows 10 came out yesterday and I’m pleased to report that ArraySync appears to work fine on our test machines. Please be wary of Windows 10 update breaking your video card drivers which I’ve read has happened to people. If your video card is not compatible […]

Problems with Spaces on Mac OS X Mavericks

If you have a Mac with multiple displays, you might encounter a problem where ArraySync only seems to play video on one of them. To fix this, go to System Preferences and choose the Mission Control tab. From there, disable “Displays have separate spaces” and you should be good to go!

Automatically start and stop ArraySync servers and clients

How to automate the ArraySync startup process is by far the #1 question I receive on the tech support email and forum. I have created two scripts with Automator. One will launch ArraySync server, wait twenty seconds (to ensure the application launches fully especially on cold boot) and then start the server. The other script […]

Mac Activation Troubles – Update with Solution

Okay, so earlier today I noticed some people who had recently purchased ArraySync directly from us (rather than the Mac App Store) were sending like 30+ activation requests which is way unusual. A quick check on my newly updated Mac system has shed some light on what’s going on. ArraySync saves your authentication data inside […]

Apple, the App Store, and Company Name Change Policy

Warning, I’m about to rant about a particularly frustrating issue that may affect some of our customers. Years ago when I first developed iForum for iPhone, I uploaded it under the App Store account for “Avianware, Inc” – a company started by myself and two other developers who were all developing apps independently but pooled […]

Improve ArraySync playback quality on Windows 7

We’ve been getting bug reports about video quality on some Windows 7 systems. There are two potential, hopefully temporary workarounds to this problem. The first is to put ArraySync into Windows XP (SP3) compatibility mode. You can do this by right-clicking its icon, choosing Properties, going to the Compatibility tab, and enabling “Run this program […]

Recycle unused PCs using ArraySync and older codecs

Not sure what to do with that collection of obsolete PCs gathering dust in the back office? Well wonder no more, because you can put them to work using ArraySync and videos encoded in older QuickTime video codecs. You may notice that modern videos encoded with H.264 or other contemporary codecs are too much for […]
