I've searched this forum a lot because I hate when a question can be easily answered with a quick search almost as much as I hate people who tell the OP google it, then when you google it you find a bunch of threads with passive-aggressive people saying "google it" and there's no actual solutions.
Anyway, I have a big vehicle and I'd like some webcams to augment my mirrors. I've found lots of good programs here like Centrafuse and even a hardware solution in JoyCon EX and each time I'm hopeful that these solutions will do exactly what I need.
Unfortunately, they only do ALMOST what I need.
-Multiple web cams simultaneously. This program has it. Centrafuse and JoyCon Ex do not.
-Image reversal so the webcam images can be used as mirrors. Centrafuse and JoyCon do this, but those are out because of their shortcomings.
That's it. It seems like this should exist. I can't be the first person who wanted to use webcams as a cheaper solution to the CCTV route. I certainly can't be the first person to want cameras to watch my six and have one each on the adjacent lanes. Mirror cams feeding one screen while the GPS (or radio/mp3 controls) shows on the other.
So far, I can't find it. It either has reversing or multiple cams, but not both.
I may end up starting a new thread if you can't help me here, but since this program is in beta I was wondering if it wouldn't be terribly difficult to add in image reversal. I'd be the first in line to buy the launch version if you did.
While I'm making suggestions, full screen mode would be awesome, but if it did those other two things, I'm more than happy to enjoy slightly small images of the traffic around me.
If you are running a windows CarPC you can try MiniCam:

- you can run multiple instances for multiple cams by calling the executable with the cam number : "MiniCam.exe 1" and "MiniCam.exe 2" (note that windows wont let you run 2 devices using the same driver so you either get 2 different cams of modify the driver to make a copy under a different name)
MiniCam can manage multiple cameras with the same name (same model/driver) by giving each one a unique identifier. That is as long as the driver can. I have 2 of the same Logitec cams in my car.
My program is just a beta version and i am not enough strong for create that you want .
For you, effectively , minicam is the best way !!!
It is that i use !
good to know. I remember reading posts about people having to duplicate the drivers to be able to use 2 of the same cam.
