[Release] FaceCam Cover

#1 Post by Firewrath » Wed Aug 22, 2018 10:03 am

Wow, guys. Long time, eh? :P
Man, I logged in and see that last active: Wed Feb 12, 2014.
You guys probably forgot allll about me. :P

Anyways.
I figured I'd release my first (real) program made with Lazarus/FreePascal. So here goes:
(Yeah, there's not much to it :P)

Hate distracting FaceCams on Videos?
Annoyed at having something bouncing in the corner while you are trying to watch something else?
Well now you can do something about it!
Just run 'FaceCamCover.exe' and apply directly to FaceCams by clicking and dragging the cover with your mouse. It's that easy!
...more in the ReadMe
Tested on WinXP and Win10.


Download

Any issues, please let me know, and I'll get to them as soon as I can.
(Though right now, I only have internet access once a week, so I may by a little slow.)

File: FaceCamCover.exe
Size: 1751040 bytes
MD5: 37D5DE42D1A7DDF6C862F65708ADEDDE
SHA1: 8E41D8D2D56A123D74EA844F1E23B6D5D26FB7EF

File: FaceCamCover_v1.0.3.zip
Size: 695477 bytes
MD5: 456A78EBFAD7D8875D45D0558179EB9A
SHA1: DDEE132DD8A01472D9F8132F09785479B4B2035A


So that should be it, unless someone has an issue with it (that I can fix :P).

Change log:

Release: v1.0.3 - 11/5/2018
Made changes to the way the program closes, it should now save the 'Save_Size_and_Position' settings when the Computer is turned off and FaceCam Cover is running.
Also made format changes to the ini file, this will NOT affect old ini files, they will work just fine. It's just a "fix" for the blank lines disappearing. ...And by 'fix' I mean I changed the blank lines to 'commented out' lines.
Now FaceCam Cover only saves changes to the ini file when there are changes to be saved.
Meaning it no longer writes to the ini if nothing changed. Not necessary, but everything helps with USB-Sticks and SSD drives.


Release: v1.0.2 - 10/24/2018
Added the ini option to disable the saving of 'Size and Position' but still load the last saved 'Size and Position'.
You MUST set 'Save_Size_and_Position=0' to Disable the Saving of 'Size and Position'.

In other words, you can use the 'Load_Size_and_Position=1' with 'Save_Size_and_Position=0' option to start FaceCam Cover, then change its size and close the program without worrying about it saving the new size.
To use it, just add 'Load_Size_and_Position=1' to the 'FaceCamCover_Options.ini' file.
(1 for enabled, 0 for disabled)

Release: v1.0.1 - 10/21/2018
Added URL button for Pascal Colors.
Fixed a minor bug I found when you have the 'About' box open and Hide or Close the program.
Random small bits in the ReadMe.

Release: v1.0.0 - 9/16/2018
No bugs/issues reported, so not much really changed other then text.
Changed the named of the .ini file from 'Options.ini' to 'FaceCamCover_Options.ini'.
Also added URL buttons in the About section.

Welcome back :)
Thanks guys ^-^
I lost all my net access for a while and then have been making the 30min trip once a week for internet (Yay for living in the country....)
Soon I hope to get a new job (Nothing programming based if anyone is curious) and hopefully Cell based internet then.
So yeah. Luckily, thanks to TPFC, I had all the portable programs I needed to tag between PCs for while. ^-^
Then a friend gave me an old netbook that I threw Linux Mint on and that's what I using for the Net now...

Funny though, after the new job will probably come a new PC and I'm moving over to Linux of some sort. >.>
...and FaceCam Cover has Windows only code in it. *Siiiigh*

Well really, I didn't think this would get "out" yet, but sure. i'll send an email or something when I do my release version.
Which will probably be next week since I havn't heard of any issues.
I'll probably move the 'Homepage' to a TPFC page once it gets added, but that'll come later.


I'd really like to get some kind of different hosting options, I don't really like using Google Drive...
but it's good enough for now.


Updated with the following:

SHA1: 5A0E88D2944800B57925BD84DE46847AD2B36774



v0.1.2 - 8/31/2018
Made the Mouse Cursor autohide after five seconds. (I have never been so happy about adding something, mostly cause the idle timer is a pain :P)
Fixed issue where you couldn't move the Cover by clicking on the clock and dragging.
Added double clicking the taskbar icon when hidden to show the Cover. (This was totally here All along...)

v0.1.1 - 8/22 to 8/31/2018
Small text fixes.
Changed the clock to be more responsive when pressing CTRL.
Tiny, tiny Issue:
The blank lines in the INI file disappear on close when 'Save Size and Position' is enabled. This is not a problem, the program still works correctly, but out of curiosity I'll look into it.

Alright. I guess it's done.
Havn't heard of any problems with it, so Here is the Final Release version of FaceCam Cover.
I was REALLY hoping I could find some way to track the downloads, but doesn't look like that is going to happen. Ahwell.
If anyone wants to submit it, they can. I was going to, but then ...What category does this go under? O_o
Like I have no idea. >.<
So if it doesn't happen I'll get to it. :P

FaceCam Cover Submission

#7 Post by Firewrath » Wed Oct 10, 2018 12:45 pm

Just throwing this up here since it might not have gotten much coverage where i put it originally :P
...and i'm in a bit of a hurry, so if I messed something up, feel free to tell me. >.>

FaceCam Cover is a program made to cover up annoying and/or distracting 'Face Cams' on internet videos.
Though it can be used to put a 'cover' over anything on your screen.

Added it to the Database here:
https://www.portablefreeware.com/index.php?id=2967

Original thread here:
viewtopic.php?f=2&t=24307

So if its up to par, Vote! :P
if there issues, Vot__err I mean, let me know. ^-^;

Thanks for posting but could you bring the post a little closer to the format used by other entries? For example the other entries don't list hash values and we don't start entries with questions like "having problems with X?"

Fixed.
I admit I was copying from my readme cause the description just doesnt sound like that much. >.>
Also the hashes where there since it was just a forum release and doesnt really have a home page and such.

For more options, right-click on FaceCam cover or its tray icon and click on "Create INI". This will generate a file Options.ini in the same folder as FaceCamCover.exe. Edit this INI file in a standard text editor to:

[*]Change the color of the FaceCam Cover
[*]Display a clock via the CTRL button
[*]Enable saving window size and position

For color codes, consult this list of Pascal Colors and TColor hashes. For example, Red is: clRed or $0000FF.

Fixed.
I modified the entry further, listing the config instructions in this forum. Obviously if you need to modify those in the future, just create/edit a new post and I'll point to that.

EDIT: Oh and I found the program this reminded me of: CinemaDrape: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=21981

I actually tried that when I was looking for something to block face cams with back before I made my AHK script that FaceCam Cover is based on. ^-^



Release: v1.0.2 - 10/24/2018 (Don't know if anyone Wanted this, but it at least stops me from worrying about changing my settings for one video. >.>)
Added the ini option to disable the saving of 'Size and Position' but still load the last saved 'Size and Position'.
You MUST set 'Save_Size_and_Position=0' to Disable the Saving of 'Size and Position'.

In other words, you can use the 'Load_Size_and_Position=1' with 'Save_Size_and_Position=0' option to start FaceCam Cover, then change its size and close the program without worrying about it saving the new size.
To use it, just add 'Load_Size_and_Position=1' to the 'FaceCamCover_Options.ini' file.
(1 for enabled, 0 for disabled)
(...If anyone has any issue with this, let me know, I tested it and it was fine, ...but I also added it in between phone calls this morning on my way out, sooo yeah. >.>)


Release: v1.0.1 - 10/21/2018
Added URL button for Pascal Colors.
Fixed a minor bug I found when you have the 'About' box open and Hide or Close the program.

FaceCam Cover v1.0.3 Update
