CamooZ - Save & restore camera settings

Semi-free CamooZ - Save & restore camera settings 7.4.2

Major bug fixes:

  • Start with Windows fixed
  • Automatic loading of profiles now always enabled
  • Better handling of assigning hotkeys to profiles
  • License will preserve Windows re-install or HDD / SSD replacement


I've just had a support case where the user could save profiles, but they would not show up after startup. That works as designed: if you want them to load, make sure that the option "Autoload profiles at startup or refresh" is enabled.

I have now seen some rare cases where the license key is unusable after Windows re-install. In such a case, please send me a PM and I'll help quickly.
I had a support case where CamooZ would not find profiles after a restart. Turns out the user had his documents folder on Onedrive.

Solution: tell Onedrive to keep c:\users\your_username\camooz6 local.
Since 7.2.3 CamooZ will not list any virtual cameras, as they don't have settings to be modified anyway.

What CamooZ did, was to check if the device path contains the string "usb" as in e.g.
\\?\usb#vid_30c9&pid_0030&mi_00#6&352ecc9&1&0000#{65e8773d-8f56-11d0-a3b9-00a0c9223196} ...

Turns out some internal laptop webcams are no USB devices, so now we shall also check for "display#int" as in

Thanks, @pamichel
V 7.4.0
  • New (experimental) option to force the currently selected profile repeatedly
  • Fixes handling "never exit, send to tray instead" when ending CamooZ via tray menu
  • Fixes window position issue: when CamooZ previously ran in a multi-monitor setup and when then re-started with only one monitor, CamooZ sometimes resulted in being active but outside the new smaller screen boundaries. CamooZ's window positions will reset to defaults now if previously stored positions are out of bounds.
  • CamooZ "Start with Windows" will now only create one auto-start item


  • The Autoload System can now be completely toggled on or off
  • After auto-loading a profile it will now properly show in header and as profile box selection
  • The misleading description "start minimized next time" has been replaced with "hide in tray after start"
  • Added option to send CamooZ to tray rather than exiting when pressing the upper right "X" or Alt-F4
  • Added an option to make showing the log after auto-load optional



Thanks to D.Lowicki for the ideas / hints.
Autoload (profiles) - 1 profile per camera - assign with right click

Windows Autostart Option
Apologies for this new update: I had a major issue with my development setup and some embedded graphics got messed up.
In this version all lock/unlock buttons (finally) show up properly again.
I purchased a new camera, the Insta360 Link. Turns out the software that comes with it allows saving different cam position settings as well as hotkeys.

BUT: when pressing the buttons or using hotkeys the Insta360 zooms, pans or tilts at full speed.

So I have decided to work even more on the SmoothPTZR functionality and allow the user to choose between 0 and 128 milliseconds of delay between the individual cam position steps. Turned out nicely - see the video here:



7.3.6 also fixes an issue with lock icons not showing that I introduced with 7.3.5 yesterday...
