A final comment: You probably don't want to force the applet to a smaller image size than the actual image size that yawcam gets from the webcam. The image will probably not become clearer. The only thing that will happen is that the stream will consume more bandwidth.
The option to set the applet size was thought to be used to set the applet size bigger then the real image size. This will give a bigger viewing area but with the same bandwidth consumption.

Since this is the case, then I need to know, which one is responsible for the image size shown in the applet; the settings in Yawcam, or the code in the html-file (or both)?

If you have the time, you may check my website. The address is:
Feel free to comment.
The size setting located here: [settings->edit settings...->camera]
will control the actual image size that yawcam gets from the webcam.
The format setting here will affect the bandwidth consumption! This setting will also decide the size of all other output types, like http, ftp and file.
If you use the option "Real image size" as described above on [settings->edit settings...->stream], it is the format settings on [settings->edit settings...->camera] that will decide the size of the applet on the html-page.
Feel free to point the file from my FTP server to your site's download section. That should balance download traffic a bit from your site when new version arrives.
