Camigo Window

Gareth Casey Updated by Gareth Casey

When Camigo runs, you'll see the Camigo window

The Camigo window shows a preview of your video as others will see it and lets you configure your webcam. If you have any call hacks activate or have applied any customisation to your webcam video, the preview video lets you see exactly how the video will appear to others.

You may notice that your video call app displays a mirrored version of what you see in Camigo. Don't worry though; the video that the video call app sends to the other call participants will not be mirrored so will match what you see in Camigo.

Options Menu

In the top right corner of the window, the button can be clicked to open Camigo's Options menu, from where you can enter a license key, open your recordings and snapshot folders, get help and close the app.

Enter License Key - Only displayed when using the free version of Camigo. If you have purchased a license, click to enter your license key. See Licensing Camigo for more information.

Recordings - Click to open your Recordings folder, which is where your screen recording will be saved to.

Help - Click to open the Help tab of the Settings, where you can access help resources and get help.

About - Click to check which version of Camigo you have installed and to check for new updates.

Quit - When you close the Camigo window, the app will be minimised to the System Tray, where it will continue running in the background. Click the Quit option to completely close the Camigo app.

Webcam Controls

Above the webcam preview, the button let's you update which webcam you are using. The drop down menu will contain all webcams that are currently available to you.

Also above the preview video, the Search GIFs & emojis searchbar in the top right corner allows you to search through a library of emojis and GIFs that you can add on top of your webcam video.
