Is there a reason that Webkam defaults to png format, instead of jpeg?
Png is great for screenshots and other sorts of computergraphics where image-corruption is easily noticable.
Jpeg on the other hand, is great for real-life pictures and sucky for screenshots etc.
Just took a picture in each format.
The png was 5.0 MB and the Jpeg was 0,16 MB. There is no visible difference.

Just wondering.
Great prog! - Jan 30 2009
It works really well :-) - Jan 26 2009
yes. That worked.
Is it not possible to use solid and phonon instead of gstreamer directly?

I don't seem to be able to save pictures. nothing is written to disk and no notification.

I like the new fullscreen mode:-) - Jan 22 2009
I really like what you have done with the 0.3 release :-)
I have two comments though:
1) You need to smile more. (especially when you take marketing pictures ;-)
2 Not sure the startup page is necessary, since it people will want to use the webcam when opening Webkam. However I think it's a good idea to have a tips section.

I like the overall design of thee GUI :-)

Unfortunatly I have a problem with running the app :-(
Just installed the ubuntu package:

Great software!
My biggest request is larger saved pictures. I have a 1.3 MP webcam. But even on a netbook 320z240 seem kinda small :-)
I noticed the kontrols looked a lot like the ones from kopete. Are you/they utilizing Solid or any of the pillars of KDE4? - Jan 17 2009

transparent checkerboard would be nice :-)

What are you doing it in? inkscape? - Jan 03 2008
It's cool.
How about instead of the checkerboard to make it transparent. Then the users background color(s) will be where the checkerboard is and you can choose color for your self.

Also, it would be awesome if it came it came in a more scalable or larger size.

If my browser is not already running the widget will freeze and not function again before the browser is closed.

also it's not possible to search for words containing certain danish letters like æg or småkage.

You could think about giving the widget some sort of complimentary colored border so that it's totally visible on all backgrounds.

Beside all that stuff, this is a great widget that has a bright future ahead of itself. - Feb 26 2007

I must comment on the lack of functionality though. I think at least there should be library/playlist-selector. This might be made with tabs or something like that, you will have to decice that since you are the artist, and I will comment again :-)

I really like the third preview picture (with the grass), but my display is 1600x1200 so 1024x768 is too small. Is it possible to get in 1600x1200 ? - Sep 19 2006

lol, not exactly MTV material. But still nice to see/hear.

I was expecting a bit more Rock, some more revolutionizing tunes. It's quite funny that it is out there though. :D - Sep 13 2006
I like the screensaver.. maybe if made small it could even be packaged with Amarok.

"I wanna free your software", Cool!
I imagine that it would be rock or maybe punk rock. It would totally rock if somebody (preferably RMS, but I don't know if he sings ;-) ) made a song like this :D - Sep 13 2006

Did you actually take this picture yourself? Or were you granted the copyrights of the original artist?

I highly doubt that this should be released under the GPL, or that ot is even legal that you manipulate it.

Please correct me if this is not the case. Otherwise, don't post more of this kind.
And certainly not the GPL. - Sep 12 2006
