    NEW Video Capture with GPS OSD Overlay Data

    I have developed a working prototype of a Video Capture program which has on-screen overlays of Time / Date and GPS data.

    At the moment it shows the time & Date in the top left hand corner of the screen and over on the top right corner it has GPS Speed. So when you are driving, not only are you capturing whats happening infront of you, its also recording your current speed.

    Now the question is, is there any other data from a GPS device which would be useful to have recorded at the same time as the Video?

    There is already an option to output a text based file which has ALL the GPS data extracted anyway, its just if it is worth recording some additional data on the video without it being to cluttered.

    Oh, plus there is a instant snap-shop feature !

    All files are time and date stamped for example -

    Logfile - 08102006 - 00.29.27.txt
    SnapShot - 08102006 - 00.29.22.jpg
    CarVideo - 08102006 - 00.15.30.mpg

    Many thanks,

    Steve

    Yes mate, very similar.

    It has the overlay data of time / date and Speed in either MPH or KPH (user selectable).

    I am still working on this application and it is getting there (when work commitments don't get in the way of course!!)

    It will not be shelved and once ready for a public beta, i will post here.

    Regards,

    Steve

    It captures in what ever codec you have installed, MPEG, AVI DivX etc. All aspects ofthe program are user configurable.

    Oh yes it has been though before! Tissy just seems to be the first one to have the skills to do it

    I'd recommend a feature to output also the coordinates to the screen. Those are not so important to everybody so it could be optional...

    edit: also make it so you can have it overwrite the older files. For example you could have 5 gigs of storage reserved for the videos - after that is filled up It'll start to record over the old files. (/delete them)

    Thanks guys, i will get this done asap and release at least the videos of it in action. At the moment it just has my mug on the video sitting at my desk with a GPS simulator providing the data!
