The program can be started the following ways:

To force WebCam Looker to run for specified amount of time without GUI and then automatically quit, you can start it with the following command line parameter: -timeout=NN
where NN - is a number of seconds to run and then quit.
For example, to run for 10 seconds only, you can use this command: WebCam.exe -timeout=10

At startup (if some of configured device/sources are not available) the message is displayed:

Title: "Webcam Looker: Can't use device",
Message: "Next devices are not connected or used by another program:"...

To customize the message:
1. Create a file DeviceLostMessage.txt at folder: C:\Program Files\WebCam Looker\Settings\
2. At first line write the window title, like: "Attention!"
3. At second line write the message, like: "The camera is not connected. Please Reboot!"
4. The suggested editor is notepad (in 8-bit chars).
