PiP 1.0 released
Pleasant Software has released PiP 1.0, a freeware tool that enables users to show video from any Webcam on the desktop. The software integrates video as a picture within a picture, making it useful for live presentations or screencast recordings. PiP automatically places itself in the menubar after launch to reduce the number of items in the dock, and allows users to define a keyboard shortcut to smoothly fade video in as well as out. The application supports changing the video device along with its settings, and can rotate the video picture by 180-degrees. PiP is available for free and requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later with a Mac-enabled Webcam.
