Editors' reviewThis small application lets you view multiple Webcams simultaneously, but its performance is a bit sluggish. Multicam's simple interface is capable of displaying nine Web cameras at once. These cameras are installed in a variety of locations around the world, including London, Cairo, New York, Hong Kong, and the South Pole. To see one at full size, click on the thumbnail. You can enter URLs for other Webcams you want the program to monitor, but the program isn't compatible with Java-based cameras. Also, cameras are not in real-time mode, as only still images are displayed, but you can set the refresh rate to as low as one minute and each camera can be set to a different rate. Multicam will only work if you already have the Yahoo Widget Engine installed on your PC. Overall, this freeware program provides any user with an inexpensive, if static, way of watching the world.
Watch four or nine Webcams of your choice at the same time with this Widget. Go into the preferences to enter new image locations. Clicking an image will enlarge it to fill out the Widget and clicking again with go back to the four -or nine-camera view.
