The Fwink source code is now available in a Subversion repository. You can browse the files online, or use your own Subversion software to check out a copy to your computer.
Thanks to a generous donation, I have completed a new version of Fwink that lets you select which camera to use when you have multiple video capture devices. It also lets you use an image file as the input, instead of using a camera. Furthermore I have migrated the source code from Visual C++ 6.0 to Visual Studio 2005.
The new version will be released this week if no problems are encountered during testing.... read more
