Webcam Diagnostics is a simple assistant which
gathers many system and webcam-related information in a single place. It makes it
easy to identify driver installation problems or USB issues: red circles will signal
serious issues and yellow triangles will signal minor issues. Right-click a reported
issue to access the context menu and click the Fix menu (if available) so that the
program attempts to fix the issue or shows you a possible way to fix it.
Webcam Diagnostics can report USB issues like overcurrent or bandwidth shortage. It
can also tell whether your system is correctly configured to handle a webcam (e.g.
processor fast enough, recent DirectX runtime, optimal display color depth, etc.)
If you are ensure if your system meets the requirements I recommended you to run the
wizard before installing your webcam.
I plan to enhanced the program over the time to bring additional features and to
improve the analysis. Your suggestions and feedback are very welcome. Please note though
that the program may not be able to identify buggy drivers.
Motion Detection is an experimental application that saves
still pictures and/or makes .avi files when anything in motion is detected in front of
the selected webcam. The pictures and the frames of the movies are timestamped.
New features include a mask, picture flip/mirror and an "always on top" option.
See the included readme.txt file for important release notes.

Windows Movie Maker Installer for Windows 7
Instant Translator is a new experimental activity for MSN Messenger 6.0 (and later) and
Windows Live Messenger which allows on-the-fly translation of all incoming messages. This may come
handy when you have to chat with people on the Internet who don't speak the same language(s) as you
do. You won't have to copy and paste text from a computer-aided translation website anymore.
This applet is based on the Messenger Activity SDK and uses
Yahoo!'s Babel Fish Translation website for the translation.
The installer simply copies a small configuration file to the Messenger folder. To start the activity,
close any currently opened conversation and reopen it to take changes into effect, then
click the Actions > Start Instant Translator menu.
Note: since this activity uses an ActiveX control (Microsoft XMLHTTP) and requires
access to an external website (Yahoo) you may receive a security warning upon the reception
of the first message. See the readme.txt file in the zip for more information.
ICQ Fixer will patch the registry with the correct settings so that you
can place a NetMeeting call to someone else using ICQ. Actually ICQ says something
like "you have called your own computer". This is due to incorrect
settings in the registry for ICQ. This patch should correct this. The latest
version also adds Network Address Translation (NAT) support for Windows NetMeeting.
Note: you can learn more about the
NetMeeting and ICQ programs by visiting the
Microsoft NetMeeting and the
Mirabilis ICQ Web sites. For additional information and
workarounds please visit MeetingByWire

Winnov Remote Zoom
This file will install the Winnov Videum Zoom applet on your system so that you can
remotely control the digital zoom of a Winnov
AV (or VO) video capture card when you are in a videoconference with someone
who owns one. This installation is only useful to people who don't have such
a card in their system since this applet is part of the Winnov driver installation.
The components in this installation come from V2.9.1 of the Winnov drivers.
Note: all the files in this
package were developed by Winnov.
I only created this installation file. This was only tested in Windows 2000
