connections - The number here specifies how many people
that can view your webcam at the same time.
limit - When selected, there is a limit of how many kilo
Bytes of data that will be transferred to the viewer before the
limit - When selected, there is a time limit of how many
seconds the stream will stay alive before it stops.
sound alert... - Plays a sound alert when a new viewer
connects. You can change the sound by replacing the file "alert.wav"
in Yawcam's sound directory. e.g.
info balloon... - Plays the standard system sound and
shows an information balloon from Yawcam's icon in the system
traybar when a new viewer connects.
rate - When stream is enabled and a viewer has connected,
Yawcam will internally get images from the video device with a
specified rate. (This is to reduce the CPU load when several viewers
are connected at the same time.) The rate you specify here will
effect the maximum output rate for stream, but also the CPU load
on the Yawcam machine when a viewer is connected. Higher rate
consumes more CPU, and lower rate consumes less CPU. Usually you
don't have to set the rate at max since the stream is limited
by e.g. congestion on the Internet and hence you can save CPU
To use a limit is a good way to let the user reload the stream
with some interval. This makes sure that there actually is someone
there watching and not just occupying a connection slot while
doing something else.
