it's a simple script that detects and show your webkam using ffplay or avplay. Make sure that your webkam is correctly installed , to check this type in a terminal

ls /dev | grep video



example :

showebkam -b /usr/bin/ffplay :set the path for ffplay or avplay
showebcam -d :enable debug mode
showebkam -ds :remove your config file located here /home/sem/.config/showebkam/.showebkam
showebkam -e :edit the config file /home/sem/.config/showebkam/.showebkam
showebkam -log :show the logfile /tmp/showebkam.log
showebkam -w video1 :set webcam 1 , you can get the list of your webcams typing ls /dev | grep video
showebkam -ws :write settings in the /home/sem/.config/showebkam/.showebkam
showebkam -vs 320x240 :set the video size for your webcam
showebkam -v :show the version and exit
showebkam -h :print this help

untar => just run ./install => system wide installation

(note the menu can't find the launcher you have to go in the multimedia section ... after a reboot you will will be able to find it :D )

i have tested only systemwide installation ... it should works even in local installation but i have not tested if you can see the launcher in multimedia section ...

yes i know webcamoid , and i know that in my system plasma crashes :D

yes there are other programs that i don't know i did it in 30 minutes so ...any insult is welcomed
