yawcam not working as service

Postby hiddentreasure » Sun Feb 19, 2017 4:59 am

Hi,

i have an issue with yawcam service.
i followed the procedure in order to enable the service (launching yawcam with my personal parameters, closing the software, then starting the service).
after rebooting, yawcam is launched at startup (webcam led is ON) but i'm not able to access to the stream as if it's not existing.
if i stop the service and i launch yawcam.exe manually, it's working properly.

do you have any idea ?

thanks in advance.

It's probably your firewall settings. More info here:

i tried on another computer under win10 64bits and i'm not able to start the service


C:\Program Files (x86)\Yawcam>NET START "Yawcam"
The service name is not valid

i checked in service.msc, YAWCAM service is not there, whereas i can see it another computer (Win7 32 bits)

any idea ?

This is not the same problem as the one described in your original post.
Make sure that Yawcam is installed correctly and that you have installed the serviced first before you try to start it.

i uninstalled/installed yawcam several times, i even tried previous versions and it didn't solve the issue.

i'll try to add the service manually in services.msc


EDIT :

I created a new yawcam service, i'm now able to launch the service start and stop without any issue.

i opened the necessary ports on my router, but i'm still not able to access to my stream

EDIT 2 :

i resolved the issue by adding yawcam_service.exe in the windows firewall rules
i can now access to my stream from outside

i have one question about the configuration.
is there any cfg file so that i can configure it one time and deploy it on all my computer with a copy paste ?
