Great, but problem with multi cameras 4 stars by henry842 Jul 14, 2013
I'm trying to set up an IP camera system for home security. Yawcam does a great job, pretty much everything I need - but there's a problem setting up several cameras. I can run up several instances of Yawcam, which I have installed in each camera folder; but after closing them all down, when I restart them, they all try to connect to the same camera. I suspect Yawcam uses the Registry (yuck) so I have to set up the links manually, each time I start my system. Bother. It may be me, I may have missed something; but I suspect it's a limitation of Yawcam. Other than that, it's got a lot of very useful features, it's fairly easy to work out how to use it, and it works. Just one other niggle - I enabled motion detect, and it disabled itself after 1 second. After a few times I twigged that the scheduler was running, and was overriding my manual command. It would be nice to have a clue on the dialog, that the scheduler is running. show Review details
Great cam utility 5 stars by busybusy Jul 18, 2012 (Read all my 230 reviews)
This is a wonderful project. The software is simple to configure and plenty of options to record your CAM images. The conversion from image to movie files work great and is pretty quick without taxing your system. There is some good programming here. Cudos!! Get it, use it, rate it! show Review details
Best security webcam software 5 stars by chromelover Feb 10, 2012
If you plan to install a security camera at home and monitor your home for free, this is the software you can rely on. I tested this software on PCs in both my office and my home. Very easy to set up. With great features. I highly recommend it to you. show Review details
