                You can pick a webcam from the top-left drop-down list.

Click the Options… button to choose more options for the webcam.

Properties are webcam dependent and different webcams have different property dialog boxes. Therefore, some properties may not be supported, such as Horizontal Flip.


Choose a supported webcam size from the Size drop-down.
