You can connect to any of the live cameras on the internet and see the images as a screen saver, with captions, transitions and background music. You can also save favorites as wallpaper. You can also, among other things, create a list of favorite webcam links, display a personalized scrolling marque, play CD’s or MPG’s; and it has something called GetRight that can download, and keep track of, your files from the internet.

In the options from the screen saver window, it is very complex, and better viewed then just copied, but be assured there are many, many options, for instance, how often do you want your image upgraded? [Wow -now the “webcam option is becoming clearer...sorry sometimes I’m a little slow, hehe].

If you click on ‘Get New camera lists’ it will take you to a couple of webcam search engines; one for specific names of, and the other is a large list of “gee look what’s available”. My only complaint is there seems to be no help files within the options you need to go to there website. Other than that, this is a neat program.
