June 5, 2015: Facebook Updates
Recent changes by Facebook have caused older versions of the Facebook uploader to stop working. A new version of the Facebook Uploader is now available for download (see below). Please note: The new Facebook Uploader is a direct replacement for the Facebook Uploader in Webcam Photobooth, but differs in two key areas:
- It is no longer possible for the photo booth operator to specify an album description and photo comment for the user when uploading the photo to a user's Facebook account. This is to comply with current Facebook policy: Facebook Platform Policy 2.3. This states that an app can only populate the user message with content manually entered by the user.
- The new Facebook uploader has the Facebook app name "PhotoboothUploader2". Users who previously granted the old uploader, "PhotoboothUploader", permission to upload photos to their Facebook account will need to grant the new app permission instead.
Updating the Facebook Uploader
Customers using Webcam Photobooth v2.1 can update the Facebook uploader by downloading and reinstalling Webcam Photobooth v2.1 using the link below:

Older versions of Webcam Photobooth (v1.7 to v2.0) can be updated by downloading the ZIP file below and copying the FBUploader.exe file to your Webcam Photobooth installation folder (normally C:\Program Files (x86)\BreezeSys\Webcam Photobooth), replacing the copy of FBUploader.exe that is already there. The file version of the new Facebook Uploader is 184.108.40.206. You must use this version of the Facebook Uploader to upload photos to a user's Facebook page. Earlier versions of the Facebook Uploader will not work.

There is no charge to use the new uploader with Webcam Photobooth v1.7 onwards.
