Quote:
In the source list in Yawcam, both cams have exactly the same name (in my example Device (USB PC Camera with Mic (SN9C105))).
This is a bit confusing.

I did some research on this mather.
The names displayed in the lists are stored in the registry of your computer.
The name of the key(s) is friendly name.
You can change that value.
I will come back on the subject and explain in details what and where to change.

To be able to run both instances as services you will also need to change some settings in the file: Yawcam_Service.ini
Change the settings for the second instance of Yawcam. The file would then typically be located here:
C:\Program Files\Yawcam2\Yawcam_Service.ini

The file holds a section that looks like this:

Code:
[service]
appname = Yawcam
servicename = Yawcam
displayname = Yawcam
servicedescription = Yawcam - Yet Another Webcam Software


Now change that to look like this:

Code:
[service]
appname = Yawcam2
servicename = Yawcam2
displayname = Yawcam2
servicedescription = Yawcam2 - Yet Another Webcam Software

Yawcam uses the settings located in the home directory for the user running Yawcam. There is however a workaround...

1) Install the first yawcam instance as usual and run it like usual.
2) Make a copy of the yawcam program directory (typically: C:\Program Files\Yawcam) and name the copy Yawcam2. You will now have two program directories for Yawcam:
C:\Program Files\Yawcam
and
C:\Program Files\Yawcam2
3) Create a new directory c:\yawcamsettings
4) Create a new directory c:\yawcamsettings\yawcam2

Now it's time to edit two files in here:
C:\Program Files\Yawcam2
If you are using windows xp or 2000 you can edit the files with notepad as usual, so jump to step 8 below.
If you are using windows vista or 7 you have to run the editor as an administrator, so continue at step 5.

5) Click on the windows start button and type "notepad" in the search field.
6) In the result list, right click on Notepad and choose "Run as administrator"
7) Now open the file in Notepad by clicking "File -> Open..." and browse to the file.

Cool Edit the file C:\Program Files\Yawcam2\service_profile.cfg to contain one line like this:
C:\yawcamsettings\yawcam2
9) Edit the file C:\Program Files\Yawcam2\launcher.cfg
Add the word service on the last line. If it's correct the last line will end with: yawcam.Main service

10) Start the second instance of Yawcam by running:
C:\Program Files\Yawcam2\Yawcam.exe
This version will now use settings located here:
c:\yawcamsettings\yawcam2\.yawcam
Browse to this path and see that the .yawcam directry has been created.
11) You now want to create a text file disablerunningcheck.txt here:
c:\yawcamsettings\yawcam2\.yawcam\disablerunningcheck.txt
to get rid of the question when starting the second instance of Yawcam.
