CamView is a free, open-source solution for viewing videos from Linux systems. Many users will be familiar with freeware such as Fluxbox or Openbox, both of which are excellent choices for controlling video playback, but both have limitations in terms of storage capacity. So, why not try out a web-based solution for controlling your videos on your Linux system? This article discusses in some detail how to use CamView. We'll look at both its features as well as the licensing structure. Finally, we'll conclude by looking at a scenario where you might use CamView on a Linux machine.
CamView is primarily a web-based program rather than a flash movie player, so you won't have any problems playing "important" videos on your Windows machine. CamView is also quite lightweight so that it does not take up too much space on your system. It is highly used in developing countries for controlling video playback, such as China, United States and Iraq. Therefore, it's a safe download for Windows users who would like to try out an alternative video player.
In our next article, we'll take a detailed look at another good piece of software called CamView, which is a powerful, open-source Windows viewer for controlling Windows video streams. As usual, we recommend that you download camview free, a desktop-based version of this useful tool. When downloading it, make sure that you are getting the latest release which is v5. (The regular v4.x series is not compatible with all Windows operating systems.)
