Morae: Observer will not connect to Morae Recorder


Observer will not connect to Morae Recorder


Starting in Morae version 3.0 the Recorder and Observer connection has been simplified to only connect over one TCP/IP Port.  By default this port (when choosing "Good Streaming Quality" in Observer) is set to 5555.  If you select "highest video quality" in Observer then Morae will use 5555 and 8080.

If you have difficulty connecting over Port 5555 you can also try changing the communication port in both the Recorder and Observer. 

Note: You can only do this in version 3 and above.
  • In Recorder go to Tools > Preferences to enter the new "Communication Port" number
  • In Observer go to Connection > "Change Port . . ."  button.

You need to make sure this selected Port is unblocked and is the same for both Recorder and all connecting Observer applications.
