That's not the most recent version of the application.
The most recent version you can find here : Yawcam_BETA_2007-06-11.exe.
You want an older version of the application ?
I'm afraid you'll have to search on the internet.
I believe it's quite normal only the most recent version of an aplication is hosted on the original site.

Oh dear!

I was reading

Yawcam_BETA_2008-03-18.exe instead of


My apologies!

Nevertheless, that makes the latest version 6 months old!

You are right about the 6 months.
But it's free ware and thus the programmer does not have the obligation to continue upgrading.
So when the application suites your purposes -> excelent
If no, then you'll have to find another freeware that does.

Of course it is free, but it has so much potential!

I personally find it far better than many commercial apps.
i would be happy to donate or even buy, but then support would be required, just in case.

Multicam, PTZ and a few other cosmetic changes (see requests) and this app would be gold!

Is there any way to get my Logitek Sphere AF to go to the position it was last at or a set position when Yawcam is started? I am using Version 0.3.0>1 built: 2007-06-11. If there is not such a feature then one would make this a great little application.

Andy :)

Did I post in the wrong place? If so I am sorry...

I have looked around on the internet for older versions of the application, but have been having a hard time. Would you guys ever consider opening up a drop box or some kind of cloud to host all of the old versions? Without access to the old systems I am unable to help my sister in Canada get Skype or my personal business voip working on her relic of a computer. It would be cool to have a database, that is something that would definitely force me to bust out some dvd burning software.

Hi Tony
I think it would be better if you didn't post on ancient beta threads because it brings them up to the top of the thread list, and this thread is no longer useful or relevant.
