    3. Kamoso is a simple and friendly program to use your camera.
    4. Yawcam stands for Yet Another Webcam software & that's exactly what it is. More precisely Yawcam is a webcam software for windows written in Java. The main ideas for Yawcam are to keep it simple and easy to use, but to include all the usual features.
