setpwc is a program that can set and list various settings of Philips (and compatibles) WebCams with the 'PWC chipset'. If ioctls-commands fails, you have to upgrade to kernel 2.4.21 or more recent.

Here are some key features of "setpwc":
  • dump current settings
  • set framerate
  • store/restore settings in nonvolatile RAM
  • restore factory settings
  • set compression preference
  • set automatic gain control
  • set shutter speed
  • red/blue-balance when white balance mode set to manual
  • set automatic white balance mode speed and delay
  • set led on- and off-time
  • set electronic sharpness
  • set backlight compensation
  • set antiflicker mode
  • set noise reduction mode
  • set pan/tilt/zoom (Logitech QuickCam Orbit/Sphere)

    What's New in This Release:
  • Certain resolution and framerate combinations need to be set at the same time or else the PWC chipset refuses them.
  • With some compilers, setpwc would end up in an infinite loop.
  • The serial number of the webcam is now displayed.
  • A man page was added.
  • The -d option can now be anywhere in the command line.
