Webcamoid, the full webcam and multimedia suite.
VERY IMPORTANT: this is an ALPHA version! (this can contains a lot of bugs)
If you want to see some nice screenshots go here:
Remember that webcamoid is not a Python plasmoid anymore, you need to compile it.
– Take pictures with the webcam.
– Record videos.
– Manages multiple webcams.
– Play/Stop capture, this saves resources while the plasmoid is not in use.
– Written in C++.
– 100% Qt based software, for KDE/Qt purists.
– Custom controls for each webcam.
– Popup applet support (you can embed Webcamoid in the panel).
– Add funny effects to the webcam (requires Frei0r plugins and QImageBlitz).
– +50 effects available.
– Effects with live previews.
– Translated to many languages.
– Stand alone installation mode (use it as a normal program).
– Use custom network and local files as capture devices.
– Capture from desktop.
