This post only concerns beta versions older than 2007-01-18

For some people the beta version can't detect the webcamera. A solution for this problem is to download and install java JMF 2.1.1e.

Follow these steps:

1) Download JMF 2.1.1e for windows
from Sun: ... nload.html
or from here:

2) Install the software.

3) Delete Yawcam's settings file. (The file is named yawcam_settings.xml and is located in your yawcam directory, e.g. c:\program files\yawcam\yawcam_settings.xml)

4) Start Yawcam. (It will most likely still not detect your webcam)

5) Run the camera detection from Yawcam's menu. (Settings -> Detect webcam... )

Hopefully Yawcam now detects your webcam.

:!: :D :!: Well, after installing the JMF YawCam now does detect the camera (right away, did not have to tell it to detect).

:? But, I still cannot get it to work with the applet being in my website page but getting the applet and stream from my PC. (See other topic which I had posted) but does work if the page comes from the PC
