which features do you want? – pootzko Dec 24 '10 at 8:57
@pootzko: I guess that's the thing, I've never really used webcam software before (even on windows) so I'm not sure what's there – Falmarri Dec 24 '10 at 21:11
well, you have to ask more precisely. otherwise how do you expect people to help you if you don't know what you want? you didn't formulate your question right then this one is too subjective... – pootzko Dec 25 '10 at 9:11
whatever that means ? be precise. – warl0ck Aug 24 '12 at 15:04
