Welcome to ExtraWebcam.com!

Test your camera

Before purchasing the ExtraWebcam software you can test your camera, and only when you get it working on your computer with your camera and your favorite video conferencing software you'll get ID for registering your copy online. So you try before you buy. License key binds to your name stored in camera's memory, you can use ExtraWebcam software with all compatible cameras you have and with all your computers without limitations. So for example you can use your camera with a laptop when you travel and connect it to your desktop when you're back home.


ExtraWebcam starts automatically when a chat or other application starts using ExtraWebcam videosource, or you can start it standalone at any time clicking on it's desktop or menu icon. When it starts automatically it's main window doesn't show up so if you want to check settings or use viewfinder click on ExtraWebcam's tray icon to make the window visible.

Main window has CONNECT checkbox, when ExtraWebcam is being used by another application camera connects automatically, in this case CONNECT switches viewfinder video on and off, when running standalone CONNECT initiates camera connection/disconnection.

Videosource box has four items: "None" disables video output, "Live Viewfinder" selects 320x200x30fps streaming video, "Single Shot" makes output of manually taken still images up to 640x480 resolution, "Interval Shooting" mode automatically takes pictures with a configurable interval, the resolution is up to 640x480.
AF Lock checkbox locks current focus so interval shooting doesn't refocus before each frame, it takes less time of taking a shot and it's useful when you want to make a video from saved pictures and wish to keep same focus for all frames.
Refocus button forces camera to refocus in Live viewfinder mode.
Log tab contains a text log of connection/disconnection process, software update events.

Camera settings tab has various shooting parameters controls.

Compact view tab makes a smaller "always on top" window that has only camera shooting parameters, this mode is useful when you're in fullscreen mode and want to keep controls visible.

Options tab has controls for enabling/disabling of software update, connection/disconnection popups and optional saving of all pictures taken in single/interval shooting modes.


If you own a Canon digital camera, you can use ExtraWebcam to turn it into a high-quality web camera suitable for video conferencing using Skype, MSN, AIM, Yahoo and other IMs, remote surveillance and everything else webcams are used for.
