Yawcam -> Settings -> Text overlay -> Own variables

It is possible to define own variables that can be used in the text overlay. The own variables will be replaced by the contents read from a text file. In this way you can let an external software or script produce a text file with data you want to include in the overlay.

All text files that shall be readable from Yawcam must be placed in the directory:

(e.g. C:\users\%username%\.yawcam\extravars)

Here follows an example of how it works:

A variable called {temperature} will read from the file {temperature}.txt
Say that you have an external script that writes the current temperature in the file {temperature}.txt, you can then display this temperature as an overlay in Yawcam by including the variable {temperature} in the text overlay.
