Yawcam -> Settings -> Stream

Stream settings

The stream output is the mode where you can stream video. Yawcam uses MJPEG as compression.

Port - This is the port number the web server for stream will open on.

Stream type - You can choose to stream via JavaScript, MJPEG or a Java Applet.

Scale to - This option let you scale the size of the output on the webpage. This doesn't affect the bandwidth usage it only scales the image.

Image quality - Use the slider to select the image quality. This option only affects the output when the Java Applet is selected. Remember that higher quality will require more bandwidth.

Additional settings... - Opens a dialog with more settings for the stream output. More info about this dialog here.

Page designer... - Opens a dialog where you can change the appearance and content of the stream page. More info about the page designer here.

Note that some internet service providers block some ports. So if the default port number in Yawcam doesn't work, you can try to change to another.

Tip: If you select port 80 you don't need to specify the port number in the address to your webcam, but on the other hand port 80 can be blocked by your internet service provider.

About the Templates...

If you don't want to use the page designer, you can change the HTML for the page by your self by editing the templates. You find the templates in your stream directory: e.g. C:\Users\%username%\.yawcam\stream

The files are named:
template_ja.html   - Used when Java Applet is selected.
template_js.html   - Used when JavaScript is selected.
