Yawcam is a program designed to capture the images produced by your webcam, either as a photograph or in video format, so that you can generate content that is then transmitted live or uploaded to your sites. In this way, the application in question will allow you to save time since it does the work that is usually done by two different programs from an integral system.
Some of this software's primary functions are publishing the images you generate from your webcam captures or, why not, streaming video of everything captured by this peripheral device. And the best is that it is an application compatible with several formats, with many tools to make the necessary modifications.
The first thing you'll find when you open this platform is a straightforward interface, which probably won't win any awards for its visual aspect. Nevertheless, it complies with the central premise in these cases: it's easy to intuit. Indeed, you will see that you have at your disposal the basic tasks this software can carry out, so let's show you what they are and what benefits they offer you.
In the first instance, within the main menu, you will find the File section, thanks to which we can save everything that the camera is capturing at that moment, either as a photograph or video. Then, we have the FTP and HTTP sections to send that transmission or contents to an FTP server or web page. However, you can also send the signal via streaming if you prefer.
What can you do once you have captured images from your webcam thanks to Yawcam? Well, you can adequately modify them, as some of its main tools involve adding text or placing stamps over them. In this way, you will be able to customize the images how you like and use them later on your sites, social networks, and other spaces.
One of the effects that we liked the most, and that you may have seen very fashionable these days, is to add the date on which the picture was taken, in the same way, the old cameras used to do it. If you want to share your images on social platforms such as Instagram, applying these fun effects, you can do it directly from this app.
What formats does Yawcam support? The most common in this segment, among which we can mention in the case of images, are JPG, PNG, and GIF, although it is also possible to work with images using the HTTP protocol. You have to take into account, as a consequence, that if your pictures are in other formats, you will have to convert them with a specific program to be able to edit them with this program.
Another exciting feature that Yawcam can offer is the possibility of taking advantage of its integrated FTP client. Thanks to this, we can transmit our webcam content to whomever we want. In this way, you don't need to use other video streaming platforms or leave the program since you will be able to make your transmissions from here quickly and easily.
Regarding the video streaming function, you have to consider that we have a kind of Control Panel, thanks to which it is possible to observe, in real-time, who the people following our transmission are. A not minor detail that you should consider in this regard is that if you do not want everyone to see the transmission but only those you choose, you can add a password to protect the streaming.
On the other hand, you should know that this application also offers some tools for the general management of the webcam connected to our computer, for example, so that it can not be used outside the times we have marked. If you have small children with whom you share your PC, we are sure this application could be of enormous use to you with some of its security and privacy features.
This program even has a motion detection system, which, if we have activated it, will allow it to open once we have placed ourselves in front of our webcam and made a more or less sudden movement. Although it is not a vital function, the truth is that it has excellent precision when reacting to our presence, and it is sure to be helpful to some users.
In summary, we can say that Yawcam is a perfect application when we want to share everything captured by our webcam with other users, whether we are looking for a photo or video format. In our experience of use, we have not had any inconveniences related to forced closures or screen freezes, so there are no significant points against it to highlight. All that remains is for you to try it out for yourself.
