Webcams come in handy for monitoring all kinds of things around the house. You can see who’s at the front door. Check the weather. Make sure your dinner isn’t burning on the stove. Or simply just aim the camera at yourself for a digital mirror. Having the image up onscreen at all times might get in the way. VideoThumb solves this by tucking away your Webcam image to the system tray until you actually need to see it. Simply click the tray icon to show the image, then click again to send the image away. You can switch sources and customize display size to fit your needs, with an optional digital zoom for taking a closer look at something on screen. The software also works with a DV cam connected to your PC. [Windows 9x/2k/XP $0.00]
