Y-Cam Black and HD Bullet

Size of each stream is setup in preferences. Normally recommended to leave primary stream as the maximum and set the secondary stream for 320x240 for thumbnails or smaller recorded streams.

Note: Colour balance on some of the Y-Cam blacks is /very/ off. Greens as pinks etc.

Do not use this camera if colour is important, however as a night-time room Infra-red camera it is very suitable. We use several for welfare monitoring of horses.

Seconded (Gerdesj (talk))on the colour problems on this camera. The same is not true for the 720 and 1080p Bullets though - very good colours.
