  • LQuickcam Embedding

    Hi;

    I am a relative newbie, but have been 'lurking' for a couple of months learning from you all.

    I have searched the threads for a solution on how to embed a window of my streaming webcam into CF, I did find some threads that mentioned embedding the same way as other applications, but I cannot find a simple viewer which I can embed into CF.

    When you click my computer and select the webcam, it shows the streaming video in the right hand pane, but what I was looking for was a windowless streaming viewer that will emebed nicely into CF.

    Any ideas anyone ??

    Thanx

    Car Cam App

    I just created a small app in vb.net to embed a webcam into centrafuse. It has some basic skinning so it looks half way decent. If anyone is interested, PM me.

                I hope someone hosts it :-) I like it too.

                As a programmer you can probably answer this then, is it possible to have the program record video in a cyclus? Like whenever the app is started it starts recording and saves the last XXminutes.

                Then if someone hitīs my car I can save the last XX/15 minutes recording and hit his insurance company with it

                  You know what will also be really nice. To have a program like skype or using phone control, so when someone calls you and if they have a webcam also you can talk and see each other in the vehicle. Just like the show night rider.

                        thanks will try it out. Is it only with usb cams or is it possible with composite (RCA) video input cams.

                            Hi;

                            Great, thanx so much, that is EXACTLY what I was looking for. I've just downloaded it and will try it out.

                            Thanx again

                            PeterC

                            Edit: just installed it, works great, a couple of suggestions / requests:

                            1) Add the default path & filename format (i.e. yymmddnnn) to the config file, so that when you hit the caputre image button, it's a one button click without needing to select the folder / filename etc.
                            2) Add the ability to invert the image in the config file (my cam is upside down)
                            3) The dropdown box to select the device seems to keep focus and does not behave 'as expected' !

                            Regards

                            PeterC

                              Probably what would be better is, if it started buffering video on app startup, and you would press a button to save the past x minutes to disk.

                              Can't wait to get this out to the car, thanks for sharing entr0py!
