HeadsUp is webcam viewer designed with two primary goals.

1. Always be on top.

The HeadsUp webcam windows will always stay on top no matter what you are doing underneath. Working in full screen mode? No problem! HeadsUp still stays on top.

2. Get out of the way quickly.

Choose a modifier key to instantly hide all open HeadsUp windows. When pressed they instantly become invisible and allow you to click and access the content underneath.

These two functionalities make HeadsUp a great presentation tool for web videos and presentations.

HeadsUp is a simple utility for screen recording or presentations. HeadsUp displays your iSight, FaceTime, or webcam feed directly on your desktop.

To assist with presentations HeadsUp will always stay on top of other windows, desktops, or screens. If you need to access windows or interact with any contact hidden by HeadsUp just hold down ⌘ and HeadsUp becomes completely transparent allowing you to view and click through the window.

Ratings and Reviews

Ran once, did not load again

Casey J Scalf

I needed something simple to help me debug a new USB Webcam. It ran once and then never loaded again after repeatedly clicking it and restarting.

My machine is up to date and I was expecting a little better performance than this. Although it is simple, it needs to work properly

A bit too simple, but clearly does what's intended


The video image it provides is clear, and the (single) control intuitive. Unfortunately for my use-case, the software does not permit you to select which webcam will be used as the source. I have three, but the only one it uses is the camera in my Thunderbolt display; I can't switch it to display the image from my MacBook Pro nor my logitech external cam.

So that's a bummer, but three stars because the stability seems to be fine and the price is reasonable for the functionality it does support.

Auto-adjust ratio now working


Defaults to correct ratio, once again usable. Much improved interface. I like the transparency option, but I wish I could use combinations (command-shift-alt to fade, etc.) Would recommend.
