how to use
pipfy.webcam can help you put a video image of yourself on your desktop. helpful for screen recordings and screen sharing in video conferencing software. no app download needed. just click capture video and grant your browser permission to access the camera. there is no server involved: the feed is only running on your computer.
thanks to the picture-in-picture browser technology you can arrange your video on your screen right along the software or presentation you want to share. the video will float above all other windows. even above a presentation running in full screen, if you enable the hover effect after starting presentation mode.
you can flip the image so the video works like a mirror. this should help orient yourself to interact with things on your screen. it makes pointing at things with your video image much easier.
you can crop the webcam to arrange the windows on your desktop in a helpful setup. we prefer to use our webcam in portrait mode to give more room to other elements on the screen.
you can run several instances in seperate browser tabs. you will need to connect multiple webcams. this way you could put a speaker and a sign language translator on the desktop in a live recording or streaming session.
browser quirks: this uses quite recent browser technology. not all browsers behave as expected. do not run the camera in an inactive browser tab to keep the feed running smoothly. instead use a single, open browser window for each instance. the window does not need to be in focus, but it should not be minimized. works best in google chrome.
thanks. practice solidarity, stay positive. you got this.
