I guess it is now more than 2 years since Malun did the last upgrade on this great software, so I am not sure if he have stopped working on it or not. I really hope Yawcam will be upgraded since it is in many ways a very super webcam software with several features that are actually not available in some of the webcam softwares that are shareware/payware.
There might be other bugs in the last versions of Yawcam, but I have at least verified 2 important ones:
1. FTP upload does not work on some PCs/network adapters.
I have experienced this on two new computers in 2009. FTP-upload works with several other softwares like other webcam softwares, weather station software and not at least a couple of FTP-client softwares I have tried. Starting FTP upload with Yawcam do however not work and it trashes even the network connection on the computer so that MS IE, LAN printer-, files-, and folders sharing and other softwares FTP do not work any more. I have tried "repair" on the network connection but it does not work. I have to restart the PC's for again having a working connection. Starting FTP with yawcam, yet again (and again.... ) crashes the network connection. As I mentioned this have happened for me on two computers and the solution on both computers was to disable the Gbps onboard network adapter and plug in older network adapters. But since the FTP problem was only with Yawcam and none of the other FTP-capable softwares I have tried, it must be a compatibility problem with Yawcam.
2. Image flickering in Yawcam preview window.
This problem do also not affect all computers, but I have experienced it on 3 PC's. The problem can be partly solved as described in another topic here by changing two files in the Yawcam folder. But then you loose the device settings and format windows (being greyed out/inactive). Another way to solve the problem is by downgrading to an older java version but this is not a good solution either since some other newer softwares or more recently upgraded softwares rely on newer java versions.
Malun... Malun.... where are you
