    video recording and buffering

    does anyone know some software that's capable of recording video from a front- and rear bumper cam (suppose they are webcams)?
    the software should be able to:
    1. Monitor both, front and rear at the same time
    2. Buffer the last, say 5 minutes and in cas i hit a button save it to the harddrive (also of both cams)
    3. start regular recording when i hit a button
    4. run on windows xp pro
    5. (optional: ...be controlled by some key combinations (i know i could also do some mouse macros, but they tend to generate troubles) )


    the plan is to put a cam in the front and another one in the rear of my car. attach them to the usb bus and then i would like to be able to see a live picture of my cams when reversing or parking, and i would like it to capture the last 5 minutes in case something (hopefully funny) happenes i can just hit a button and i got it!


    i appreciate any tipps

    You should integrate a TiVo into your car.

    Seriously though, you can probably find some security related webcam capture software.

    i found some security related software but sometimes they don't generate real avi's and none of them can actually do the buffering thing...

    i thaught about just running showshifter or a similar programm in my car, but they have just timeshifting, but i can't save it permanently AFTERWARDS ... so i am still looking for something..
