Willing Webcam is an easy-to-use webcam software package that helps you capture streaming video and pictures and then saves the files locally or publishes them to your web site, instantly or at preset intervals. To make your videos really shine, you can enhance them with comments, date and time stamps, watermarks, and various live video effects.
This webcam software uses a motion control detection sensor to wake your web camera up at the slightest movement. The sensor can trigger an action such as sending an e-mail, MMS image message or SMS text message, saving a video or picture, uploading a file to an FTP site, sounding an alarm, or starting another software application.
Here are more ways to use Willing Webcam to make your life more fun, secure, convenient, and comfortable:
- Live video streaming
- With Willing Webcam, you can record your daily activities as live streaming video to share with your friends and family in real time on your web site. No matter how far away your friends and family are, they can always go to your web site and see how you’re doing. Another great feature of Willing Webcam is the ability to use different video sources. You can share your computer desktop (handy for teachers doing demos for students), and you can also share TV shows and MPEG movies with your friends.
- Video surveillance
- People who are often away from home or traveling can use Willing Webcam to detect the slightest movement in their home and immediately send a notification if there is an intruder. By checking this video, you can see what’s going on in your house or on your property, contact law enforcement, and provide recorded evidence to the police if necessary. You can also monitor housekeepers and other household staff to make sure they are not doing anything untoward like stealing your possessions. To protect the evidence, you can upload the pictures to an FTP site or send e-mails with the attached pictures to your own e-mail address, such as Gmail.
- Time lapse feature
- In addition to a motion sensor, Willing Webcam offers a time-lapse feature to record a video at specified time intervals. This works like a DVR (digital video recorder) to create a movie frame by frame (snapping a picture every second, for example), so you can get footage all day long and then fast play the movie later. If you’re a professor or researcher, you can add video to your academic web site, such as weather or astronomy web pages. Say you’re a botanist working in a greenhouse…you could record your plants growing!
- Babysitter or nanny supplement
- Parents can use our webcam software to turn a web camera into an electronic babysitter. Wherever you are, you can always make sure your children are safe by watching the video on your office computer or mobile device. You can also use Willing Webcam to monitor elderly or ill friends and family who may need your help.
- Video compatibility
- Willing Webcam is compatible with Skype, Windows Live Messenger, Yahoo Messenger, and other IM (instant messaging) programs. This can be very useful if you are on distributed international teams and need to have a meeting. Plus, if you have video equipment that doesn’t work with these programs, Willing Webcam can transfer the video stream to the IM programs using an intermediate driver. You can create your own streaming videos for web sites like YouTube, Vimeo, and UStream.tv. Add text, date and time stamps, watermarks, and other video effects to enhance the output video stream.
- Remote management
- Say you are on vacation or away on business and need to make a change to your webcam operation. Willing Webcam allows you to remotely manage your webcam no matter where you are at the moment. Just send an e-mail, SMS message, or http command from any corner of the world.
- Webcam Gallery service
- The program offers you the opportunity to upload webcam images to the Willing Software site. Webcam Gallery service is intended for people who don’t have web hosting or don’t have the time to support it. The Willing Webcam program uploads images to our web site and your visitors can view your web page according to the defined access level. The service has a design panel to create and manage your web page yourself. If you like image galleries, you can insert an enhanced image gallery into your web page using just one string.
