cam-alot viewer (formerly WebCam Viewer) 6

Small, accessible and easy-to-use piece of software that enables you to quickly access and explore various locations on the planet
WebCam Viewer is a very easy to use Windows application that allows you to view webcams from all around the world through a user friendly interface.

Specifically designed to allow users to view all these webcams without the need for loading the original website, WebCam Viewer is addressed to beginners and more experienced users alike, but still lacks some important features.

The main window is indeed straightforward and intuitive, boasting the huge collection of webcams the application provides. The top of the window is being used to display the configuration options, so there's no separate screen in this regard.

You're thus allowed to scale the image, open a random cam, set up the refresh, see user comments or enable auto shuffle at a user-defined value so, as you can see, there's nothing too complicated about the program.

Although the collection of webcams is indeed impressive, WebCam Viewer lacks a search tool to easily find a stream. Plus, there's no option to save a favorite webcam or at least to sort the existing ones by country or type.

On the other hand, WebCam Viewer runs on low resources and doesn't affect system performance at all, although it needs an Internet connection to work properly. Another thing that's worth mentioning is that WebCam Viewer sometimes freezes on Windows 7, especially when it has to load new webcams from the list or refresh the image of the one that's already loaded.

All in all however, WebCam Viewer is a tool that may help a handful of users, but it still needs many improvements to become a top product in this particular software category. Search features and well-organized webcam lists are must haves.
