Our review: Works from the start. This video surveillance and web cam software gives a good impression. The user interface contains some small glitches. But for its price it is a good software. Recently authors added support of MPEG4.

We have tested versions 9, 10 and active webcam 11 in Motion JPEG mode – our tests were OK. If you run ActiveWebCam without a registration or entering a key or serial number, the software shows a nag screen and works with minimal number of features.

Small strange thing: on startup the software turns Axis 213 PTZ camera to its zero position.
Some rarely used cameras, like Vivotek 5xxx or 6xxx are not well supported. But actually it is not a problem.

The only one not good thing about Active Webcam is a weak technical support. In few cases our visitors experienced problems trying to get answers on their questions about this software. Answers were too generic.
