Hello,

I am looking for software that will work with my Logitech webcam 900 camera and display the image from the camera on my computer screen at full resolution.  I don't need to broadcast or anything, but need the lowest latency I can get.

I do want to use it basically as a webcam, but without the "web" part. It doesn't need to broadcast anything anywhere, just display on the monitor. Real time.

The only software I have found that will do full screen at 16:9 is VLC.  However, there are two problems with VLC:  it introduces a lot of latency and the video looks very jerky, like it is not getting full frame rate - I need it smoother.

I have found several programs, including the one supplied with the camera that look smooth but cannot scale to full screen 16:9 like VLC.  

Thank you for any assistance

Have you tried Yawcam?  It's pretty flexible compared to most webcam programs and works with just about everything.

I tried yewcam and several others - everything I tried was either too slow or presented visible rendering artifacts.   I ended up capturing the video in a completely different process and playing it back on the screen as opposed to trying to use an image rendered from a web cam.
