I know you have that feature in your software. However, it doesn't really hide because it goes to the system tray, Can that be hidden as well??

I have now made it possible to hide yawcam completely. But since most people probably doesn't want to use this feature I have made it a bit tricky to activate.

Option one: Create a file called "allowhidemore.txt" in your yawcam directory. You will now get an extra menu option in yawcam view -> Hide completely.

Option two: Create a file called "hidemoreatstart.txt" in your yawcam directory. Yawcam will now start completely hidden in the background.

If you want to bring yawcam visible again when it has been completely hidden, try to start yawcam again and the hidden version will become visible.

Anyhow, I'll put this version up for download tomorrow.


Great! ... but one more question

Since I am using Dsl and my IP keeps changing every day. I created a script file (exe) to run to change the IP so that I don't have to manually press that Get IP Advanced button.

Actually 2 questions.

1. Can you make it on autostart and it will get the IP automatically? If not..

2. Is this file yawcam_settings.xml (latest verison) the same as the older version one? I don't remember the verison I am using. maybe 2.01 or 2.02. or 2.03 or 2.04. If I have to change it, I will have to change my script.

Please advise

Yawcam changed to a new format on the settingsfile in version 0.2.3.

But, you don't need to update it manually everytime you run yawcam! Get a dns updater from for example and use this address in the "advanced public ip" setting in Yawcam.

Look at the stream guide:

The latest beta is available for download now:

I have made some small changes from before, so the activation files should now be named:

stealth_allow.txt (for the extra option: view -> hide completely)
stealth_start.txt (to run Yawcam completely hidden from start.)
