Camfrog version 5.2 has some great new Webcam Organizer features that a lot of people don’t know about.

To start using the Webcam Organizer feature for Mac or Windows join a Camfrog Video Chat Room, then right (or Ctrl with Mac) click your local video window and choose “Webcam Auto-Organizing” to make sure it’s activated with its check box.  Next open many remote video windows by clicking Camfrog user nicknames in the user list and the video windows will automatically be organized to fit within the boundaries of your computer screen.  Check out the Youtube video from our Camfrog Youtube Channel below to see an example of how it works.

You can also right click your local video window and resize all the windows to whatever size you want, or move and then reorganize all windows, or organize just one window to place that specific window exactly where you want it.  This resizing feature is new in Camfrog 5.2.

To get into more detailed Webcam Organizer settings go to your contact list, then the “actions” menu then choose “settings” and then “video”.  You can make your organizing go horizontal only, vertical only, or keep the default horizontal and vertical organization.

Don’t like the Webcam Organizer?  No problem.  Just disable it in the settings.  You can even turn on sticky Windows if you like the original Camfrog versions that had no organizing abilities.

    It would be nice if you could specify the size the cam’s open in. In large rooms, smaller cam size would be nice to fit more cams on the screen. Then users could enlarge the cans as they see fit.

  7. You can, in actions/settings/video.

    Thanks :)

  9. I’ve been begging for a feature since camfrog went to 4.0…The ability to change the resolution of the webcam. I don’t mean Super-High Quality, I’m talking about being able to change whether you’re displaying in 640X480 and so forth. A lot of new laptops come built in with webcams, and a lot of them are defaulted to display in widescreen. There is no option in camfrog to change the camera display resolution. You’re dependent on the manufacturer to provide that in the video settings, and like I said a lot of the built in ones do not come with this option outside of their respective program.

    I have to use ManyCam, JUST to change my camera resolution. Camfrog is already INTENSELY memory intensive and with the addition of having to use ManyCam it just slows my computer down more so. BTW I’m running it on Vista with Quad Core 8GB Ram…So please if you can fix anything in the next release PLEASE PLEASE allow the user to be able to change the resolution.

    This article may shed some light on why laptop cams act like they do:

    http://www.eetasia.com/ART_8800466961_499489_NT_1059f506.HTM

    Bandwidth considerations are the prime reason they act like this, and if your webcam is hard-coded into a specific resolution, there is little Camfrog can do to change it. Just a thought.
    You might be able to Google your laptop manufacturers website for adjustment settings. They may have utilities that can help.

    Special Request : Camfrog, can you add the ability for us to set the camera display size to ‘postage stamp’ size? We could fit a lot more cameras on the screen :)

    Wow, today, as if by magic, this very option showed up in my client !!!!
    This is odd, but nice. When I first upgraded to the latest version, it only showed Classic as the smallest cam size. This week, the small cam size appeared !!! This rocks ! Yeah, I rebooted several times since I installed the latest Camfrog. No matter, this is great !

  12. Yes, this feature exists also. Thank you.

    Many, many users are reporting (and we are experiencing as well) frequent audio and video stream dropouts. All cams freeze and/or room audio lost and/or outgoing audio to room stops working. Any advice?

  14. SteveSunJia,

    This is a known problem with ping time in Camfrog Server and will be fixed in the next server release.

    There is a little bug If someone with version 5.1.129 send a videocall to an user with version 5.2 the user with the newest version get disconnected from the central Camfrog server.

    Updating the previous comment, the users who are experiencing that problem are using Camfrog 5.2 with the italian language pack the english standard has no problem and the 5.1 user receives the message:

    The video chat failed because you are using an old version of Camfrog. Please upgrade to the newest version of Camfrog with one-on-one video chat improvements by visiting http://download.camfrog.com.

    I think you have to fix the video problems caused by ATI Catalyst 9.X series drivers.
    I don’t know anyone reported this, googled a lot and found no solution on internet.
    On Catalyst 9.3 series drivers DXVA v.2.0 is enabled and I think camfrog videos have problem with it.
    When I open multible video’s on camfrog, after a while, the whole desktop freezes. There’s nothing you can do but to reset the computer.
    This is a huge problem for me because I have Radeon HD 4870, I’m a game fan And Catalyst 9 series drivers are vital for some game’s performances.
    But I can’t use camfrog video chat client with those drivers at all!
