Compatibility with
Video Devices

Willing Webcam is compatible with most USB-based or FireWire (IEEE 1394) video devices, including webcams, camcorders, TV and video capture cards, TV tuners, Canon digital cameras, and IP network cameras. We also support the pan, tilt, and zoom features of Logitech webcameras.

Preferences

Program preferences.

Start with Windows
Program loads upon Windows startup.

Always on top
Program is always on top.

Minimize on start
Minimize on startup.

Language
Change the language.

Character Set
Select appropriate character set for your country.

Restart
This feature restarts the program after the 'Value (hour)' period. The minimum period can be 0.1 hour (6 minutes). The restart operation takes a few seconds, and the program is able to restart itself only if it is still running. This feature can be useful for resolving a cumulative error.
Note: Before using this feature, you should try different program settings, such as changing the program mode from VFW to DirectX, or vice versa.

Value (hour)
Restart time in hours.

Play capture sound
Play sound when capturing image.

Show Option Table Hints
Disable to increase option table performance.

Program title addition
Add an addition to the program title. This is useful for multiple rolled-up program copies.

Picture Quality
Picture format and jpeg quality. Although the program uses .jpg format by default, you can set .bmp image format for the 'Picture', 'FTP Upload and 'HTTP Upload' features. Go to 'Preferences > Picture Quality > Picture Format'.

The .jpg format is lossy because it compresses an image; in contrast, .bmp format includes all of the information about an image. The .bmp format is more suitable for further processing in a graphics editor, while .jpg format is more useful for the Internet.

Picture Format
Select picture format, bmp or jpeg.

Jpeg Quality
Balance between quality and size of a jpeg file. You have to find a compromise between quality and image size. For easy tuning run 'HTTP Server > Run Browser'. You can see the image quality in browser while you change the control value, because the preview image will not change. A small change in image size or quality will provide a big monthly savings.

Upload Status Bar (full version)
Select an upload feature that will have a progress bar indicator. You might be familiar with the blue upload bar when you using FTP for uploading files. You can also specify that a status bar appears for the 'FTP Upload', 'HTTP Upload' (Submit), 'Send Email ' and 'Send MMS' features.
