Latest version: 1.0.96 beta - it’s not perfect, but I hope it works for you!

Fwink is not under development anymore, so enjoy it as-is.

I wrote it in around the year 2001 for fun. Enjoy the free webcam software.

About Fwink

Fwink is a free and open source webcam application for Windows. It takes still images from your camera at timed intervals and puts them on your web site with FTP. You can add effects like text messages, time stamps and an overlay image.

Fwink does not make live video calls. For that, you may want to try Windows Live Messenger, Yahoo Messenger, Skype, etc.

You can superimpose a logo, or any image you want, on top of your webcam image. The following image formats are supported: JPEG, GIF (transparency is supported), PNG (transparency and alpha are supported), BMP, TIFF and WMF.

You can trigger your camera with the ATI Remote Wonder. Instructions for configuring this plug-in are provided with Fwink.
