    I see a bunch of people asking what type of software they can use to access the webcam on their T61. Well instead of me keep teling people I'll make a thread. I have had success using http://www.yawcam.com. It is a nice piece of software and works quite well wit the integrated camera.

    Use this software called Creative Webcam...it is truly awesome....it has a motion sensor thing ...so if you set it...and you walk away from your computer...and some other guy decides to check out your comp....it will automatically record it ...almost like a security camera.....you can set the specs for low or high sensitivity....and what field of view to focus the motion sensor on.....truly awesome!

    Would it be possible to post the version info? I tried downloading one of their software programs and it wouldn't recognize the integrated camera. Thank you.

    I just wish YawCam would allow you to capture and save video to disk in a common file format. Also, I am hoping it is just due to the YawCam software, but it doesn't do a real good job with exposure or colors compared to what I get from other webcams.
