CyberLink YouCam 5 is a powerful set of tools which provides everything you need to get the most out of your webcam.
As with previous editions, the program has lots of fun tools to spice up your video chats. Special video effects can have snow fall in the background while you talk, place animated 3D objects in your hands, or replace you entirely with an avatar which tracks and reproduces your own facial expressions, amongst many other options.
YouCam 5 now also includes many more practical features, though. So the Standard edition allows you to log in to Windows just with a glance at your webcam, as well as logging you into popular websites like Facebook, Amazon and eBay (no more passwords to remember).
YouCam 5 Deluxe goes further and recognises when you're no longer in front of your computer, and can automatically lock your screen or hibernate your PC. You're able to create videos which can integrate with PowerPoint projects for more interesting and dynamic presentations. And both the Standard and Deluxe editions now fully support HD video both in their effects, and video recording, with a new ability to save HD video in H.264 format.

Most system performance issues are often a result of other software clashing with your brand new software. For instance, security software can clash with a background process, such as a system maintenance tool or defragmentation software. Another cause of system slowdown, is a result of two software applications performing a similar task. As an example, Windows includes a firewall switched on as a default. Your new security suite is likely to include a firewall. You only need one firewall running. In this example, try turning off your system firewall.
Uninstalling Your New Software
Occasionally you may need to either temporarily or permanently remove your new software.
On a Windows computer, go to the Control Panel and choose Programs and Features. Locate the program within the list, then click it to highlight it. Finally, click the Uninstall button at the top of the list and follow the instructions to remove the program from your PC.
On an Apple Mac computer, using Finder, locate the Applications folder. Within the Applications folder, find the name of the application you wish to remove. Simply drag the icon to your Trash icon in your dock. Empty the Trash to remove the files from your computer.
Still Having Problems?
If you cannot solve your system performance issues or are struggling to remove your software, we advise contacting the software manufacturer. If you placed an order, see the section in the order which states Support options. Alternatively, go to the Contact Us page to contact store support directly.
