I use a Logitech C525 webcam and everything appears to work for a few hours until the camera goes offline. I can only reactivate it again by stopping and restarting Netcam Studio. I have looked at error and critical sections of the logs and there is nothing in there.
I know others have had similar issues and it was suggested to try WebcamXP. However, WebcamXP is not an option for me because the email sending does not work (on everything I tried including my own email server) and I receive a Socket #10054 error when testing email in WebcamXP and besides, the download section of WebcamXP strongly suggests using Netcam Studio!
I have tried many settings in NCS and regularly experience the issue of the webcam going offline. I tried to start the service in Windows Service Manager but it does not start (although I can start and stop NCS from the tray icon). What is the point of the Netcam Service if it never starts?
