setpwc allows users to set all settings of a Philips (or compatible) WebCam, including auto-gain-control, color-balance, etc. Settings can be stored to the non- volatile RAM of the Webcam and a dump of the current settings can be retrieved.

Release Notes: This version was fixed so that it works with recent kernels (and V4L2) as well.
Release Notes: 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.
Release Notes: The kernel API for the Philips compatible webcams has changed slightly, so setpwc was adapted accordingly.
Release Notes: Resetting the pan/tilt status of a Logitech sphere/orbit now works.
Release Notes: Support has been added for the Logitech QuickCam Orbit/Sphere Webcams: you can now pan/tilt these cameras. There are some small fixes.
