The program works with IP cameras that have the jpeg output. If you have such a cam, you should find the jpeg file name the html code for viewing the cam (you can get it while viewing the picture from the cam in your browser), for example: image.jpg Q. Why does the program freeze after a while? A. Willing Webcam may freeze when it is connected to a driver that does not work or when the connected camera stops working (a camcorder or a still digital cam). Camcorders stop working in a few minutes if there is a cassette inside them. Video Driver Q. I downloaded Willing Webcam to test it. I can’t get it to see my camera. Is there a driver that I can download to make it work? A. The program collects all WDM and VFW driver headers on your system and works only with them. Drivers are provided by webcam manufacturers. Q. How to avoid the auto search of the appropriate video driver when the program is started (the program crashes at startup): A. You should use the -driver parameter of the program, for example: "c:program fileswilling webcamwwcam.exe" -driver Q. Every other webcam software I have used allows access to the video capture card controls via the "Video Source" window to allow control of brightness, contrast, saturation, etc. I see you have image
  11. 11. controls built in but I am wondering if there is a way to access my capture card controls directly in WillingWebcam.A. Look at the Video Options button above the Preview window and click the arrow to view the items.Q. The video from my Quickcam Express appearing in the Willing program was jumping in contrast, fromhigh to low contrast and back. I could not fix this within the Willing program. I loaded a graphics viewerand accessed the camera via the Twain interface. This gave me an enhanced set of video controls, so Iturned off flicker control and this fixed the problem in the Willing application.My question is which set of controls has precedence over my camera and what is their relation to oneanother?A. In the Willing Webcam program you also have access to video driver controls. Please, select the VideoSource item of the Video Options menu (above the video preview window). The video driver controls areunder Willing Webcam Video Effects.Q. Every time I restart my PC, I have to open the Video Device > Video Source > Webcam > Video forWindows > Analog Video > Input drop-down list and select ’Composite’.A. Install DirectX software, version 8.1 or higher. Though you use the VFW driver set in the program, it ispossible to save this option only via DirectX.Q. What exactly is the difference between Video for Windows and DirectX in the Webcam or framegrabber option? Which one should I choose and why?A. Video for Windows is old Windows system software. DirectX is new software. It works as a layer overVFW (Video for Windows) adding new features in order to support new video and audio devices.If you work with VFW, keep doing it because VFW doesnt require a lot of processor power. Otherwise tryDirectX (you have to install version 8.1 or higher). Though some program modes use DirectX in any case:- the Analog Video > Input setting- the Webcam Relay > Audio feature- the HTTP Server > Audio feature- the Screen Modes > Live Desktop featureQ. I can’t find the pan, tilt, zoom options for my Logitech QuickCam Sphere camera in the DirectXoptions.A. You should at least once use a ptz operation for your Logitech Orbit or Sphere cam under the ‘Videofor Windows’ driver set to open these options under DirectX.Q. The motion detection feature doesnt work for my Logitech QuickCam Sphere camera. It freezes.A. Logitech QuickCam Sphere and Orbit cameras have the automatic gain control option. Disable it andset the Exposure and Gain options to appropriate values. See the Options > Video Source (the buttonabove the preview window) > Advanced > Automatic Gain Control checkbox. This video driver optioncauses the video to fade in/out, which triggers motion detection all the time.Compatibility with Windows VistaIf you have a few video feeds and work under the VFW mode you can avoid the Video Source > SelectVideo Device dialog box. You can use one of the following ways:- Change the program mode to DirectX.- You should run the program with administrator rights:Control Panel > Computer > Program FilesWilling Webcamwwcam.exe > Properties > Compatibility >Privilege Level > Run this program as an administrator.- You can disable the User Account Control (UAC), but disabling UAC will lead to a less secure system:Control Panel > User Account and Family Safety > User Accounts > Change Security Settings > DisableUAC.If you have a Logitech Orbit (Sphere) camera and need its pan/tilt/zoom functions, the above mentionedways will help you as well.Q. Why do I see only a black window in my webcam view?A. You should make your webcam driver active under the ‘Microsoft WDM Image Capture (Win 32)’ driverusing the Options > Video Source hot button above the preview window.Q. Theres a blue screen when I use my webcam.A. If you see a solid blue or green screen in the VFW mode, you should change the current video formatusing the Options > Video Format hot button above the preview window.Command lineQ. Does the program support the command line? I have a program that needs to operate my webcam.A. The –command parameter precedes a commands line enclosed by double quotes. For example,
  12. 12. <wwcam.exe -command "ftp on,capture"> for the full version, <wwlite.exe -command "picture on,capture"> for the lite version (remove the angle brackets). Use a comma to separate multiple commands on one line. Please see the Commands page below for the option table. Your program can also communicate with the Willing Webcam application via e-mail, sms and http commands. Please look at the ‘Option table > Management Kit’ options. Bandwidth Q. I am now getting 1400 visitors per day. Soon reaching my ISP limit of 10 gigabytes per monthUNREGISTERED VERSION OF CHM TO PDF CONVERTER STANDARD BY TH bandwidth. How do I decrease uploading size? A. See Preferences > Picture Quality > Picture Format > Jpeg Quality. If you decrease the Jpeg Quality value you will decrease image file size. You have to find a compromise between quality and image size. For easy tuning run HTTP server > Run Browser. You can see image quality in the browser while you are changing the control value, because the preview image will not change. A small change in image size or quality will provide big monthly savings. Auto-Dial (full version)UNREGISTERED VERSION OF CHM TO PDF CONVERTER STANDARD BY TH Q. Is there a way to schedule WW to make a telephone call by modem, log on to my server (with username and password), and then send an image via ftp (with username and different password) to my website server? A. 1. Select the Preferences > Dial-up > Auto Dial-Up checkbox 2. Select the Preferences > Dial-up > Non-default connection checkbox Fill in the Name, Password, Phone fields; leave the Pulse unchecked if your phone line uses Tone dialing mode. Usually the Domain field is blank, but you have to ask an administrator of your server. 3. Select the Preferences > Dial-up > Disconnect After usage checkbox 4. Select the FTP Upload > Enable checkbox 5. FTP Upload > Cycle > Value 24 6. FTP Upload > Cycle > Period hours 7. Clear the FTP Upload > Schedule checkbox Use the ‘Connect’ button to force Dial-Up connection while you are tuning. Webcam Relay (full version) Q. Can you explain what webcam relay mode is, and how it will let me go from the USB standard length of 15 all the way out to 100? A. You need a local net with two or more computers using Willing Webcam. One computer has a webcam and HTTP server enabled (embedded in the program). It broadcasts video over a local net. Another computer with Webcam Relay enabled gets the video. The relay computer may itself have HTTP server enabled and broadcast the above mentioned video over local net or Internet. It doesn’t matter how long your local net is, or how many computers with webcams you have. On the Relay computer you can switch between them. You may have other Relay computers. NB: Each licensed copy of the software may only be used on a single computer by a single user. Hard disc directory source Q. Under Video Device -> Video Source -> Hard disc directory there is a box labeled "Delete files after usage". If I check this box, it erases, within a second or two, all the jpeg files in the directory, even though it has not uploaded the files to my server. A. Some video devices provide video files for a certain directory all the time. WW takes these files and views them. WW does all the operations at once when working with a video source. "Delete files after usage" - deletes a file after viewing, so we get real time work. If you prefer not to delete files and you want to view them in an endless cycle, select the Rewind checkbox. Time Caption Q. When I enable the time stamp, I get two time fields on my video and I can’t adjust the position of the time. Any ideas? A. There are two time parts. Please look at Option table > Text Caption > Enable Time and Option table > Time Caption > Enable Time . The Option table > Text Caption and Option table > Time Caption both consist of two parts: a text part and a time part. The text part uses the Text field, while the time part uses the Format and GMT fields. Both use the Placement and Font controls. You can change vertical and horizontal positions by the Placement > Vertical and Placement > Horizontal controls. 0,0 point is the top left corner. Q. Where can I find a quick description with samples of the time formats used? A.

How do I use the ftp upload feature?A. Fill the Server, Name, Password fields with values given to you by your ISP.When you select the Enable checkbox or click the Ftp button it will initiate ftp upload to your web site.There you should have your webpage with the webcam image link.Select the ‘FTP Upload > Passive mode’ checkbox if your client is behind a firewall. Active FTP maycause problems. From the firewall’s point of view, the FTP server that is trying to initiate a connectionwith your client looks like an intruder and is usually blocked.Select the ‘FTP Upload > Passive mode’ checkbox if you have a DSL connection.Please take a look at the Program FilesWilling WebcamWeb PagesFTP Uploadindex.html webpagetemplate. You are free to change the template to meet your needs if you want to. Its java script is usedto refresh the webcam image only without affecting other webpage elements.Q. The program uploads images via FTP alright most of the time, but sometimes it looses uploadedimages.A. The problem depends mainly on the FTP server and the Internet connection quality. Its normal thatan FTP connection hangs sometimes, but the program must reestablish it after that. Actually uploadingvia FTP consists of four main stages: establishing an FTP connection, changing the FTP folder, actuallyuploading files via FTP and breaking the FTP connection (it may also include renaming files). Ifestablishing an FTP connection takes more than the FTP Upload > Advanced > Timeout value, the FTPcycle will be interrupted by the program. If uploading via FTP takes more than 5*Timeout value, the FTP
  14. 14. cycle will be interrupted as well. So if the Timeout is 20 and uploading via FTP hangs on the uploading stage, the new cycle will start in 100 seconds. The cycle will start in 20 seconds for other stages. Q. Can the program upload webpage files in addition to video ones without me buying other ftp software? A. You can upload your webcam page files using webpage templates from subdirectories in ‘Program FilesWilling WebcamWeb Pages’. See the ‘FTP Upload > Synchronization > Local Folder’ options. You are free to change the templates to meet your needs if you want to. The template with the java script is designed for the FTP Upload and HTTP Upload features, the template with the java applet is designed for the HTTP Server feature. The java script is used to refresh the webcam image only without affectingUNREGISTERED VERSION OF CHM TO PDF CONVERTER STANDARD BY TH other webpage elements. Q. When I upload video through FTP, the file is shown as a ww.tmp file, not a ww.jpg file in the program. A. The security settings of your upload folder (on your Web Server / Hosting server) must have Modify allowed for that folder otherwise a TMP file cannot rename itself. You may have to contact your ISP to change this setting.UNREGISTERED VERSION"UploadCHM TOfile sequence qty. it for? Q. In the ftp section, what is the "upload number" which is set to 5? What is A.

I want to upload a photo instantaneously and I need to click FTP button, then the Capture button and finally uncheck the FTP button. How can I do it in one operation? A. Clear the ‘FTP Upload > Cycle’ checkbox and you can upload a photo with the ‘Capture’ button. ‘FTP Upload’ cycle will be inactive. HTTP Server ::live streaming (full version) Q. How do I set up streaming video with this program? A. Willing Webcam uses a java applet to establish live streaming. How to ... Q. I tested your solution and I could not get a live webcam broadcast (it was a slideshow) despite the fact that both computers were interconnected using LAN (on the same subnet) and none of them was over the limit regarding processing power.The frame rate of the preview window was set to 10 frames per second.Do you have any idea how to get a fluent stream instead of a slide show?? A. Fluency depends on: 1. Video Device / Video Preview Rate 2. Video Device / Video Window Size 3. Preferences / Picture Quality / Picture Format (JPEG) / Jpeg Quality 4. Network card capacity For the best stream results you have to increase p1, p4 and decrease p2, p3 values. Q. I have tried your program. And it works great.. But when I try to send the url to my friends they only see pictures of me. Not Live video. When I try it on my computer with the same url it works great. I have tried different browsers and java programs but nothing works.I have unchecked the last saved box also and enabled live video on http settings. Do you know what could be wrong? A. Do your friends computers have Sun Java VM v.1.4.1 installed?It seems that Sun Java VM version 1.4.1_01 does not work properly.On the remote computer your friend must uncheck the Use Java 2 v1.4.1_01 for <applet> option in MS Explorer. After unchecking Java v1.4.1 they have to refresh the IE browser. Then the browser will use Java v.1.3.1 or they can update v1.4.1 to 1.4.2 at www.java.com The situation is the same in 2000 and XP. Q. How do I configure the http server to work behind a router? A. Connect to the router through web browser. Set the broadcasting IP address and Port, select TCP-IP protocol. How to ... Q. I selected the Audio checkbox, but I do not hear anything from my broadcasting page. A. If you hear nothing from your broadcasting page, check the ‘Tools > Internet Options > Advanced > Java (Sun) > Use JRE v1.x.x_xx for <applet> option in MS Explorer. If there is no such option or if the JRE version is lower than 1.3, you should install the latest Sun Java Runtime Environment (JRE) on the client computer where the broadcasting page will be opened: http://www.java.com/en/download/windows_xpi.jsp If this option exists and the version is 1.3 or higher, but it is not selected, select it. See also the ‘Option Table > HTTP Server > Audio’ and the ‘Option Table > Preferences > Audio Source’ options.
  15. 15. Q. When I run the http server, I can connect to it via LAN. If I try to connect from the Internet it doesntwork.A. If you have a router, you should connect to the http server from another computer, which is not inyour network.HTTP Upload ::submit (full version)Q. HTTP Upload doesnt work for me. What should I do?A. You have to upload the wwsubmit.php script file from the Program FilesWilling WebcamWebPagesHTTP UploadPHP directory to your web site. Most web hosting services have a PHP engine. Fill theHTTP Upload > Script Address field with URL of this script.The behavior of http upload is affected by settings in php.ini at the web hoster side. Usually thesesettings are workable for you by default.The program saves some diagnostic info to the Program FilesWilling Webcamww.log file if http uploadfails. Compare the diagnostic data with the settings below. If the php version is earlier than 4.1.0 thenedit the wwsubmit.php script file before uploading it again. If you need to change other settings youhave to call the php.ini file from your web hoster, edit and place the edited php.ini in a root of yourwebspace.php versionIn PHP versions earlier than 4.1.0, $HTTP_POST_FILES should be used instead of $_FILES.file_uploadsWhether or not to allow HTTP file uploads. Make sure it is on.upload_tmp_dirTemporary directory used for storing files when doing file upload. Must be writable by whatever user PHPis running as. If not specified PHP will use the systems default.upload_max_filesizeMaximum size of an uploaded file. Must be larger than the size of your uploaded image file.max_input_timeThis sets the maximum time in seconds a script is allowed to receive input data and file uploads. Must belarger than the uploading time of your image file.How to build a good protection against upload attacks?Some firewall software, for example Norton Personal Firewall, can interfere with the work of the httpupload progress bar indicator. Go to Norton Personal Firewall > Options > Firewall > Http port list andremove port 80.PictureQ. When I try to specify the drive/directory under the picture option, the drive drop-down list shows onlylocal computer drives without mapped network drives.A.

When I record an AVI file to the hard disk of my PC, the movie does not have the time and datestamps.A. If you use the VFW/WDM video set, you will need to select one of the video formats: RGB,YUV12(I420), UYVY, YUY2 (the Options > Video Format button above the Preview window). Dont enablevideo compression.The DirectX driver set does not have these restrictions.Time-lapse savingQ. What video compression type does the program use to compress a time-lapse avi?A. MS Video 1 or Indeo(R) video 5.10.Q. What does the "compression" value under the time lapse mean. There is another compression optionunder the "Options" icon where I can select my compression codec and select a level of compression butthis doesnt change the compression value in the time-lapse section.A. The compression option under the Options icon works with streaming avis. The compression valueunder time lapse works with time-lapse ones.
  16. 16. Q. I cannot view the video file created in the SWF format. A. Adobe Flash Player loads the entire video file in memory when you are viewing it. If the file is very large, you may run short of RAM. In this case, you should reduce the following value: Time Lapse > Max file size Mb. Also, take this problem into account if you plan to send the file to someone else. Please pay attention to an example of using a video file in the directory Program FilesWilling WebcamWeb PagesTime LapseSWF.

Can you tell me how the software works with multiple cameras. I read that it does work with more then one cam but cant find anywhere how. Do I need to multiplex a USB port or can I use a multi input video card with two ore more cams. A. If your webcams use different drivers, you can launch a few copies of Willing Webcam and select a different driver for each one. If your webcams use the same driver, Windows doesnt permit you to work with them at the same time. You should use the Video Device > Video Output feature in this case. It sends the video stream from the program to the ‘Willing Webcam Capture’ video driver. You can select this driver in other instances of Willing Webcam or in Skype, an instant messenger (for example, MSN, Yahoo). It would be a good idea to adjust the image size in the program so that it corresponds to the image size in the target software. Program View Q. Why some of the icons at the top are always just grey boxes? A. It means that these operations are not available at the moment or in the current program mode. Icon "Video Size" - try the Options -> Video Format hot button. Icon "HTTP Server" - enable the HTTP Server in the Option Table or click the green triangle button under the Preview window. Icon "Last saved" - upload or save an image locally at least once. Gamer View Q. What has that got to do with gaming? What is "program view"? A. Program view is the specific view mode. Program may be always on top, translucent, or small (at your option) with only the video window showing. Willing Webcam users can play or do computer work and see the webcam at the same time. Management Kit (remote management - full version) Q. I cant even figure out what the Management Kit is for. A. Management Kit is a security and remote management tool.The security part consists of the login program and hiding of the program. Remote management include creating your own commands from small basic commands under the plus icon in the table. Get a brief hint in the status bar by keeping the cursor over subcommands when choosing a set of them. With the navigator under the command table you can add, delete, and navigate commands. If you uncheck the Enable command flag this command will become unavailable. You can create a message with your subject known only to you and a command bulk (command names) in the body. Each command should be separated by commas. They will be executed command by command. The Listen to e-mail, sms and http commands > Enable e-mail option must be on to check your mailbox for the specified subject. The Listen to e-mail, sms and http commands > Enable SMS option must be on to check new SMS messages for the specified password (the SMS password should be at the first position of the command list in the SMS message). The program doesnt touch other messages. Command messages will be deleted after execution. Enable the Management Kit > Listen to e-mail, sms and http commands > Enable HTTP option to allow the program to accept commands via the enabled HTTP Server feature. You can also enable the HTTP Server > Authentication option to protect the program. In this case you should specify the Name and Password command parameters. 1.

I have 3 laptops. If I will buy one license for Willing Webcam, can I install the software on 3 laptops?Or only on one?A. If you use your 3 laptops in turn, you can purchase only one license, because only one person will usethe program at a time (as a book).If all copies of the program work at the same time (each on its computer), you must purchase 3 licensesfor them.Help documentationQ.

Webcam or frame grabber The program collects all WDM and VFW driver headers on your system. Drivers are provided by webcam manufacturers. You can also use Windows native video driver: Microsoft WDM Image Capture (Win32). Using DirectX feature you can also work with most of USB-based or FireWire (IEEE 1394) devices. Microsoft DirectX 8.1 or higher must be installed. If your multiple webcams use different drivers, you can launch a few copies Willing Webcam and select a different driver for each one. If your webcams use the same driver, Windows doesnt permit you to work with them at the same time. Difference between VFW and DirectX modes. Video for Windows (VFW) is old Windows system software that does not require a lot of processor power. DirectX is new software. It works as a layer over VFW and adds new features in order to support new video and audio devices. VFW and DirectX modes have different algorithms for the Movie Save feature. So if a feature is not working correctly, for example, the Enable Text/Time Captions feature (Note: This feature is not officially supported by Microsoft), try the other program mode. The program cannot save the name of the compressor with the VFW video source; see

Set Video Device > Video Source >Webcam or frame grabber to DirectX Set Video Device > Video Source > Webcamor frame grabber > DirectX > Video Compressor toIf you are working in the VFW mode and you have a few connected video sources,some actions can change the current video driver mapped by Microsoft WDM ImageCapture (Win 32) driver. This situation might occur if you disconnect the currentdevice or another video program switches the current driver, which can be sharedamong programs. Willing Webcam software saves and restores the current drivername, but if you run the program from the same directory under different Windowsoperating systems, Willing Webcam wont be able to find the selected driver nameitself in other Windows operating systems because the names are different. Thesolution is using different Willing Webcam directories to have different settings files .For information about how you can make your driver current again, see How can I usean USB webcam?

All cameras work with Willing Webcam on Windows XP. They also work with Willing Webcam on Vista in Windows XP compatibility mode and on Windows 7 (except the S80 model). See the ‘Video Device > Video Source > Digital Camera’ options and the zoom & reset buttons above the preview. Most of the options become visible only after the camera is connected. The files for the new feature are not included in the Willing Webcam installation package. The program will ask you to download and install a separate installation file when you use the feature for the first time. You can install the file manually by going to DigitalCamera.exe. You will see live low-quality data from the viewfinder after connection. To see shots in their real resolution without running the program cycled features: Click the ‘Copy’ button above the preview window or enable the ‘Digital Camera > Cycle’ option. Actually, the ‘Cycle’ timer is needed only for non-cycled features. Click the ‘Last saved’ button above the preview window after the first shot initiated by these operations or by the cycled features. To connect the application to a camera, you need driver software that connects the camera to a computer (assuming that it is running Windows 98 SE/Me/2000 SP4). Driver software is not required on computers running Windows XP. It would be better to supply your camera with power by using a suitable AC adapter. Be aware that the shutter is rated for a restricted cycle amount, 100,000 cycles on average. You can use the camera’s viewfinder to get shots without the shutter, but the viewfinder’s resolution is 320x240 for Power Shot cameras in this case. See the ‘Digital Camera > Shots from the preview’ option. Please do not place your computer into standby mode while the Canon digital camera is connected to its USB port. Do not remove the memory card or battery, disconnect the communication cable, or otherwise interfere with communication.
