Brooke's Web Cam
The Webcam32 software is no longer supported (Aug 2007) so I'm
looking for an equivalent free software package that will work with
standard composite (yellow RCA plug) type video. So far ATI has
not been able to get my All-In-One 9800 video card to process video
without locking up the computer. This after two years of trying
(on and off).
I have a low light level Video camera on order for observing the stars.
This is just an experiment using a Logitech Pro 4000 web cam.
Logitech does offer any software or support for uploading a still image
every now and then, and instead sends you to a third party that does
this for a fee.
In order to get these images uploaded I used the 10 day demo version of
This $40 program also allows you to have some number of prior images
and also thumbnail versions. That's what you see below.
The small numbers on the left are the month and day and the time is on
There appears to be up to a minute between the upload and being able to
see the latest image.
Note: Most browsers cache the images so you need to hit
<CTRL> and <the
refresh button> to see the latest images. This can be done on
of the large images obtained by clicking on the thumbnail image.
Just clicking on the
image again will not bring up the current image unless you have
disabled cache in your browser.
