 Post subject: Video Windows steals focus from other Applications

Hi,
I am having a problem with the CamUniversal Video Window stealing focus from other applications, even if it is hidden.

Normally this is not a problem, but it's particurally annoying if i'm watching a movie or playing a game, as it seems to cause the movie or game (fullscreen mode) to minimise into the background.

Is this normal behaviour, and should i just exit cam universal when i am doing something else ?

Thanks

Hi,

I hear this the first time.

What function do you have running?

At motion detection you can choose the action, that the video window comes at topmost, but I guess this is not your case?!

Hi, i have motion detection running, to record video whenever motion is detected, i also have the scheduler taking a snapshot every 30 seconds.

The video window is hidden, and does not appear at any time, but i cannot play any games or watch a video in fullscreen, as soon as the game or video switches to fullscreen mode, it minimises straight away.

The video window does not re-appear, yet i cannot do play games or watch movies unless i first exit camuniversal.

I have just tried again on my system without problems.
I don't know in which situation CamUniversal should cause another application to leave the fullscreen mode.

Perhaps it depends on the used video device and codecs.
Some codecs opens a dialog for adjusting settings if they are used. Perhaps the video recording starts and the codecs opens a dialog.

To be sure that is not your video device, please use for a test the sample netcams from the program. Load sample_still_picture_netcams, remove one camera to have only one, run for this camera the same functions which you run for your camera. And then let's see if there is also the fullscreen switching.
