When teaching an online Docker/Kubernetes class, I need to zoom in the picture of my Logitech C920 webcam so I can frame my green screen correctly. To do that, I use the Advanced Webcam Settings dialog.
This is handy but not all software allow you to display that dialog. Grrrr! 😡
Here's an easy way to display it using FFmpeg:
choco install ffmpeg
2- Get the exact device name by using:
ffmpeg -list_devices true -f dshow -i dummy
Mine is listed as "HD Pro Webcam C920"
3- Create a bat file and use this command with your device name to pop the dialog
ffmpeg.exe -f dshow -show_video_device_dialog true -i video="HD Pro Webcam C920"
4- Create a desktop icon or simply type the batch file name in a terminal
Voilà! The settings will be active until you reboot. 👍
