Web-Cam Apps
 
Hi Guys, I have been setting up Puppy thumb-drives for friends. Depending on their hardware I have been using either Puppy Wary or Slacko. With Slacko I can install gucview for the user to run their web-cam. However, any of my friends who are running on old jalopies appear to be left high & dry in this department. I tried a USB installation of Racy last night & ran into the same issue. Can anyone point me to an app in the PPM that will run a web-cam on Wary/Racy. Because I am setting these drives up for use by total newcomers it needs to be a relatively simple GUI application. Thanks.

Thanks
 
This is just a short line to say thanks for the prompt manner in which my issue was answered & resolved. I discovered what I was doing wrong in my searches ; after not finding what I was after in the multimedia section of Wary's & Racy's PPMs I started typing 'gucview' in the PPM's search box. It should have been 'guvcview' - it's always the little things that get you!
