    Thats a bit tricky, its basically set to use the last video input that any other program has used.. It should come up automatically.

    This is another limitation due to the plugin i used (VideoOCX) and should be remedied when i can completely replace that part with my own code.

    I just started working on this again, I've been pretty busy over here. Get your feature requests in and i'll see what I can do!

    I've already implemented mirroring the image both horizontally and vertically =]

    it can record until you run out of hard drive space, using any codec you have installed. Due to the way it proccess video though, it can only record at about 8 frames per second =[

    VERY nice plugin! Have it workin great in my skin!

    But you asked

    1) What is the code for the inverted image to send to the plugin? (mirror to mirror it)

    2) SonicXtacy02 created code in a RR beta that created labels using the zips.dat file from the GPS Gas Price plugin. The labels can show your current City, County, State & Zipcode. The labels are updated as you drive using your GPS position. I just got a PM from Guino yesterday, saying that he is adding that code to the next official release of Road Runner. Now, can you add those labels to be displayed as overlay, and recorded in the video?

    The labels are:
    "CURRENTCITY"
    "CURRENTSTATE"
    "CURRENTCOUNTY"
    "CURRENTZIP"

    It would be a nice feature looking back on the video to see what location the video was recorded in.

    Again, great plugin, and have it working flawlessly with my skin, and using the DivX codec, you get nice, clear and small video files!

    Just sendmsg "MIRROR" and it will mirror it, or un-mirror if it is already mirrored. Also, this changed in version 1.2 that im working on now, as you can now mirror it vertically as well as horizontally (hey, someone asked ) so the code for that will be HMIRROR and VMIRROR, though MIRROR still works, it just cycles through hmirror,vmirror,both, then none.

    This shouldn't be a problem at all. I'll add some code so that if you have I:<indicator name> it will grab that from roadrunner and display it in the custom text. I'll also look in to having it possible to save video files based on those, or even other indicators

    Again, great plugin, and have it working flawlessly with my skin, and using the DivX codec, you get nice, clear and small video files!
    I finally got to a computer that would allow me to see that screen shot you posted, and it looks awesome. I was hoping you would skin it for your skin, because its the one I use =]

    Does the low frame rate bother you when recording, or does your hardware allow you to record faster? I tend to be very picky when writing software, and that speed limitation with recording really bothers me =/

    Ahhh VMIRROR! thats the one I was looking for I figured out the MIRROR in an early release just playing around with it and trying words, took a bit to fig it had to be in all caps

    I needed the vertical mirror as well, as I have this little camera:

    It has a clip on it, and I have it upside down, clipped to the molding above my rear window. It has great resolution, and semi decent night vision, and the lights will illuminate in total darkness at close range. Sure cant beat the price! It's something like $10 HERE WARNING!!!! That site is addictive, and has lots and lots of kewl $hit for very cheap prices!

    Actually on my desktop, the video is live frame speed. When recorded though, I notice it is a bit faster than real time playback. I am not adjusting it here, as I will do that in the car where it will be used in the "real world".

    Gotcha =] On my laptop I have to record at 8 FPS to keep the playback speed the same as when it was actually record. Then again thats a 1.1ghz 512mb ram with a boatload of programs running

    Dealextreme is indeed very addicting. I actually found a few things there that I had bought elsewhere for way more. Also picked up a cartridge to play roms on my gameboy advance ds =]

    I already have vertical mirroring added, so stay tuned. Been a lot busier here than I thought I would be. Unless someone else requests/suggests anything else, 1.2 should be out soon, as all I have to add is that bit of code for working with indicators, and that is trivial at worst because i already query roadrunner for gps speed

    Hell, i could even re-write it so that it supports 4 custom text display, and you can just add indicators in the INI for what you want them to be. That way it can display only the time, oro the speed and the date on one line, etc etc. I think I'll do that, and have it setup by default to look like 1.1 with speed, date, and custom text

    I just got a chance to mess with the VMIRROR and HMIRROR commands tonight, neither of them seem to be working for me. MIRROR works fine, when pressed, it mirrors, then returns back to normal view, and does not flip the image as you mention that it should as it toggles through them. Could this be WebCam driver Dependant?

    Hahha, also..... isn't there always something else Could you add Lat & Lon as labels as well. This would be a great way to see exactly where you were on Google Earth or maps if you see something in the video you want an exact location for or something.

    I think the idea of having all of these customizable is a great idea! that way anyone can mix and match what they want in the recorded video.

    Man, this is really shaping up to be a fantastic plugin! using the DivX Codec, I can record about 4 hours per gig, not bad at all!

    Here is the latest Screen Cap, I am running out of places to put buttons with all the new features you keep adding! LOL
