    Smile 4 Webcams Program Manager (NEED Beta tester !!!)

    Hi all,

    I try to create an auto it program who can to drive 4 webcams in same time.

    Actually, the features are:
    -snapshot bmp file
    -save avi file
    -save on a web page
    -send a jpg file to a gmail address
    -Define GUI type (one or four cameras)

    -define the cam device
    -define the format size
    -define the compression type

    To do list:
    -to choose an external web page (not only 192.168.........)
    -debug

    That i can't to do:
    -exit the program if more than one webcam is on
    -save a bmp/avi file if more than one webcam is on.



    mutlticam.ini file:
    Code:
    [Devices]
    NumberOfDevice(1/4)=1   ; gui 1 or 4 cams
    DeviceName1=0   ;device 1
    DeviceName2=1   ;device 2
    DeviceName3=2   ;device 3
    DeviceName4=3   ;device 4
    [SaveNames]
    Prefix= ;if exist, the jpg name's files begin with this prefix, if not the name file is "Cam number+date-time.jpg"
    [WebPage]
    IPAddress=192.168.0.1
    IPPort=6969
    PageRefresh=30
    [Email]
    SmtpPort=465   ;465 for gmail only or see your provider's smtp setup (25 is the default)
    SSL=1   ;1 for gmail, 0 for other (1=https)
    MyGmailAddress=[email protected]   ; your gmail address
    ToGmailAddress=[email protected]   ; the gmail address for send a mail
    Username=xxxx   ;your gmail username
    Password=yourpassword   ;your gmail password

    I have many problems:
    Actually, i have no webcam, so i use Webcam Simulator who simulate a webcam from an avi file or Fake Webcam, and Manycam .

    I need beta tester who have 2 webcams or more and want to try this program for feed back.

    Thanks for all helps !!!

    Hello,

    I tried it out and I can't get more than one webcam to display. After I add the first webcam, I can't change or delete that cam either. Looks like it has potential, but it's not quite there yet.

    Also, I was able to record an avi file off the first webcam. 640X480 avi, 22sec, 574mb! That works out to around 1.5gb per minute. Seems a little high if you ask me. I have 30 minute HD digicam files that only run 3-4gb.

    Cheers!

    Yes , i know this bug.
    Can you try:
    -open just one cam , and chose a différent compression different that "Cinepak Codec by Radius", by exemple "xvid" or "divx". Depend of the codec that you have on your pc .

    -open just one cam , and chose a différent device (source) . You must to have two cam minimum !

    -you can open more than one cam but you must to wait some seconds to see the cam
    (the device (source) are defined by default in the ini file).
    0 = device 1
    1 = device 2
    2 = device 3
    3 = device 4

    Thanks !!!

    this looks interesting. Do you stil have the problem of needing different webcams to avoid driver conflicts? I tried to put 2 eyetoys on my pc but its not possible to have the same driver running twice

    A useful feature to add to the program would be to automatically delete old footage.

    Well if you are going to be using this software 24/7 recording, it would be ideal to have the software automatically delete old footage otherwise your drive would fill up and you need to delete it manually.

    Thanks lambosprit , i like your plugins!

    It is why i ask some help .

    That i have tried is to change the device number for each webcam, (0 to 3), and i think that run well.

    Effectively, i have a problem with more one cam !

    May be , a good test would be have two different webcam with two different driver !
