ok will try to do it now
that would be AWESOME! File size or time limit, doesn't matter, as long as it does not fill up my hard drive. Thank you so much for doing this.
Ok that is it... the world has come to the end with the vide library licecense expired.
So, I can not edit my app anymore.
Latest build is posted @ the first post. The app now supports continius single file recording (up to given size) so you can dedicated 100mb oh hardrive and it will use only that space to log the video. See change log txt and *.ini fiile for more details
Atitionally I added more functions to *.ini so the look an feel of the app can be configured to meet your fronend needs.
If you find bug, post it here, but I can not rebuild the project anymore.
So enjoy what I have so far. If you want more that only would be possible if I get license for the lib + some reasonable donations ;-)
Updates that didnt make it yet:
-map video player
-GPRS EVDO remote viewer
-60fps support for sientific cameras
Click On Image and then in new window click on it again to open donation page.
Ok I did a bit more development to make the use of the app easier and so people can utilize it more effectivly.
So I added the GUI config utility to work with RCHD.ini config file.
The utility is posted in the first post attachments. Let me know if there are any bugs in it.
I am going to install this later on today and let you know the results. Is it possible to integrate this into RR instead of RR cam?
yes it is possible to integrate if some one will help me with the skin...
if there is no skin it is still touch friendly, (just use proper settings in GUI Config, i think defaults were left to be like a skinned app)
Today i have tested my app in the field... I used $30 USB wecams (that we sale by the way)... it was kinda cool cameras where mounted outside with magnetic loaks. I felt like im shooting the movie. well i did in a way.
I had 1Ghz car pc and it seamed that FPS were a bit low ~ 12-15 but on awarage camera caught all the traffic behaviour. (Speaking of camera that was 1.3MPix camera capble of 1024x768 video resolution at 15FPS but i was using 640x480 @ 30fps)
Well i think after all project looks nice. However i pried the direct access to the camera and i got full 32fps which means there will be an extreme upgade some time soon to boost the performance and get rid of that VideoX library that prevents use of all on Windows Vista. Bad news is that it will be a bit complex so app will be most likely go for money, well but I promice segnificant discount to Mp3car community. Also i'm thinking about C++ version of the product to boost performance to the max. And yes for 6-10 cameras DVR for cars i think car pc runing windows may be to much to hadle so i will check with hardware guys to see if we can develop a hardware compression bord so video would be compresed there and just placed on HDD... i'll talk about that idea bit later when i get patent approved ;-)
Oh yes another thing, i'm negotiating with one of the manufacturers about 5x5x3 mm cameras 640x480 @ 60fps auto forcust to infinity. Very interesting model if i can get thos then it would be nice for car pc as they are so small so we can install them everywhere...
OK here it comes, I'm gonna start working on new version of Road Camera HD v2.0.
All unfinished features of previous version will be included in V2. + The goal is to get 120FPS!!!!!!! on single camera or 60FPS on 2 separate cameras.
This project will be much harder then previous one so it will take some time to see some first samples. Well updates are comming soon
Ok so here it goes first build of Road Camera HD is availabe on first page... There are no useful features as it was only prove of concept for new engine base... but so far: CPU usage is 50% less then V1, also FPS suppoer is up to 120 frames for one camera. Also this one is compatible with Vindows Vista. What else.. oh yes since we get girect access to video camera there are no way to do print screen on anotherhand thats why cpu usage is smaler.
Any comments? Post here
Great work with the cam. Very intrested in this.
I have set it up working great on XP with my logitech notebook cam (at 7fps, otherwise the playback was to fast!!)
I have installed the previous version (0.3.0.0) and I have been getting an intermittent error when taking a picture. (as attached) It seems to save a .jpg file, but thats blank (i.e black).
I was also going to try and knock up a skin for Road Runner. I'm new to skining so your have to bear with me! What commands does your app take if I use the sendmsg command from Road Runner?
Keep up the good work tempgp.
