Unstable unintelligible web cam software 1 stars by Monte1 Sep 05, 2006
Active WebCam Professional Very difficult for an experienced computer user to set up - runs for a few days then get lots of weird errors, and no response from product support team. Complex settings are not fully saved and you need to regularly reset all the camera options, and reboot computer to clear the errors, records video even when not set to and created 30G of files in 4 days - easy to sit and look out the window than the 20 hours I have spent trying to get this thing going - using it as a project surveillance device with 2 cameras - anyone know any reliable software? show Review details
Support is poor 2 stars by unhappy Feb 23, 2006
Active Webcam has some good features, but it wouldn't save my video settings reliably. My many emails to support were usually ignored, or just briefly answered by a novice who couldn't help me. End result is a purchase that wasted my money. show Review details
