Simple Webcam Viewer Software for Windows 7
*Since posting this blog there is now a updated version click on the link below*
At work today I needed a quick bit of software to test that a webcam was working without installing the complete webcam software on the PC.
If you use windows XP you know that you can test the webcam is working under “My Computer” unfortunately this helpful option was removed from windows 7
So after a quick google search I found this handy software from Bust a Tech software
From the Website of Bust a Tech
WebcamViewer is a very simple click-and-run application, where you don’t have to install the application. Simply download the exe file and run the exe file to use the software. You can store it inside your harddisk or you can carry it in your pendrive, and run it on any PC you want.
