    Arrow RRCam - Video camera display and record

    Use the latest version, RRCam 1.1 here

    RRCam version 1.0 is released to the wild! Get it here (Special thanks to Enforcer for getting this uploaded)

    RRCam will allow you to view and record video from a web/video camera. You can mirror it, for use as a backup camera, as well as have the speed from your GPS overlayed.

    Installation is fairly simple, just unzip to your skin's directory, and then checkout the readme.txt file in the subfolder 'RRCam' Also checkout the config.ini file, it will explain the different options available to you.

    Being the first release, please let me know of any issues and/or suggestions. As for the skin, well, its about the best I coudl do in paint I kept the images a .bmp's because it makes re-editing them later easier, but im sure as things progress I'll get a nice transparent PNG skin out (feel free to make one =])

    WHOOPS: Forgot to include some files, please checkout the instructions here You'll need to get both files for RRCam. Sorry guys! I'll fix this in the next release...

    I will release it, but I'm working on what's basically a complete redesign of how it works internally. oh the joys of getting a solid base to build a program on =] Also have an issue with the program crashing when it exits.. It's something to do with the communication between it and RR, but I cant (wont) release it until at least the crashing issue is fixed...

    Sorry me just being me.

    Nautilus = Submarine in 20,000 leagues under the sea.

    Shortened version of Submarine is Sub


    Sub also short for subscribed.



    Yeah that crashing when using the RR SDK comhook. I have that issue as well. Howver I have some apps which don't do that and some that don't. Try using the com object (I haven't yet but will soon).

    Ah nice!

    Glad im not the only one having issues with the comhook crashing. Hell, it crashes VB which gets pretty old..

    Could you be more specific about using the com object? All this com stuff is new to me =] Hell, i just picked up VB a month or so ago =/

    AH yea, I tried that before using the comhooks now, but I ran in to the snag of how to get messages from RR to my app...

    I'm very interested in this. It would be cool also to attach a forward-looking camera with GPS/Speed text overlay. Kudos to you for working on this project.

    I got this all working using VB 30fps @ 640x480 w/ overlay & without using any expensive cam plugins. However the only problem is, if I choose *any* kind of compression, the overlay dissapears. If I record in uncompressed frames, it works fine. If only I could fix this last problem.
