    Is height -120, width -160 and fps -15 the limits? If I try going below skype doesn’t start the video – it says “some other program might be using your webcam”?

      Our software never use the webcam.

      You should never start webcam software before starting Skype. There is difference between webcam software and webcam drivers. Skype is using webcam drivers in order to access the webcam. If any other application is using these drivers, and this can be webcam’s own software or any other application, then Skype will not be able to access the webcam. Actually, you don’t need to have any webcam software installed on your computer for Skype being able to use the webcam. Only webcam drivers are required.

    Hello. I’m trying this software with Skype (july 2016). There is no effect. I need to enforce a very low fps and a small frame size, due to a very poor connection speed. Trying 240×320 and 10 fps or low doesnt work, fps seems to be higher. Is it a way to decrease fps more, til 5 or 2 fps ?
    Thanks if you know a tweak or another software, or if a change on this software can be made.
    Have a nice day.
