Its exposure is excellent meaning it copes well with bright sunlight and going into tunnels etc.

    Would thoroughly recomend it and it only cost me a few quid from Ebay.

    I could post some videos if anyone wanted to see a sample but they are rather large...

    I thought you said this camera was looking forward, if so you're driving on the wrong side of the road.

    @Ashtos: Thanks for your words!

    When you say, it doesn't record anymore, do you mean it stops recording or is the video when you watch it too short or something?

    I once had a similar problem when i used divx or xvid. I recorded 30 minutes but the resulting avi file was only 8 minutes long. Weird problem.. :-/

    Cool video! I go to England this summer and have to drive a rental car. This way I can get used to driving on the wrong side ;-)

    I get an "error while setting up the capture object" "the parameter is incorrect" the second time I try to start the app.

    The first time I try it, it works, but it just records black AVIs. My Webcam is a Nortex NX Vega with both VFW and WDM drivers available (I am using WDM) that is only capable of 352x288

    Any suggestions?

    You can try set the 352x288 directly via the config.ini.

    Try choosing a different video codec.

    Set the framerate to 10, 15 or 25 fps.

    So you say it works for the first time? But after you saved settings and restarted it gives you that error?

    It doesn't work as such the first time. It starts without errors, but then saves blank AVIs

    Subsequent starts, even if I wipe the entire install and unzip it again, give that error. I have to reboot to get rid of it.

    I'm just curious about what kind of CPU usage people are getting when running Capture.

    I'm on an SP13000 mobo (512mb RAM) and, while capturing, my CPU usage climbs to over 75%. This is with my brand new PS2 eyetoy cam (which is awesome by the way...thanks to all for the suggestion!). Don't get me wrong though....the video capture looks great, but the only problem is that other applications (especially running Navigation or something) really take a hit. The map refresh is way slower and other apps take WAY long to load.

    I tried capturing with a few different codecs, and surprisingly, DivX gives the lowest CPU usage. Others are upwards of 85%.

    Is it just that my mobo isn't fast enough, or am I doing something wrong here? Do others run capture behind their frontend (CF, RR, Streetdeck) successfully?

    Thanks in advance!

    You have a SP13000 System! This is about as fast as a PentiumIII 500mhz! Don't suggest to much from the via systems.

    I have a MII10000 and no matter what I do it is to much for the system. Thats why I ordered a CoreDuo 1.83Ghz 1GB RAM CarPC. This is about 10 times faster than the via system. I want to run two instances of Capture! and have FreeDrive for navigting without any lags.

    Bottom line: 75% CPU usage for Capture! is very good! :-)
