Java webcams not updating
It now tries to run Yawcam with java 1.7 even though java 1.8 is installed and it will stop with the error messages above.To get it all working again you will need to uninstall To uninstall all java versions:1) Click on the Windows start button and open the Control Panel.2) Click on 'Programs and Features' to uninstall a program.3) In the programs list, find all java versions4) Uninstall them one by one, by right click and select Uninstall When all java versions are gone, go to and download and install the latest version.

I wrapped the capture calls in try blocks and no exceptions appear to get raised.
If I use the example code from Processing site for Capture (https://processing.org/reference/libraries/video/Capture.html) The bloggie turns up in the Available list of cameras.This article describes how to troubleshoot plugins.If you are having a problem with an extension or theme, see Troubleshoot extensions, themes and hardware acceleration issues to solve common Firefox problems.Can access it via debug batch file but if I try to open normally I get the 'could not start the application' please reinstall message. But no information whether the PC has the direct X or not. I closed webcam software running in the quick tray & notification area. The debug_creates a log and it gives something like this.-------------------------------------------------------------------YAWCAM - Yet Another Webcam Software Version: 0.4.1 (2013-04-18)os.arch: x86java.home: C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre1.8.0_25java.vendor: Oracle Corporationjava.version: 1.8.0_25tmpdir: C:\Users\Meena\App Data\Local\Temp\user.home: C:\Users\Meena Max heap memory: 247MMax physical memory: 6133Mbase_path: C:\Users\Meena\.yawcam\File.separator: \Local language: en Time zone: calendar.
