This is a very minor nitpick, but the About dialog still says version 1.66
:)

Hi. Your app is very good, and I always use it.
Anyway I have a problem: sometimes Explorer crashes (not due to webcam2000), and when the taskbar and icons come up again, webcam2000's icon doesn't reappear... Is there a solution for this?
Note that webcam2000 process is still running in task manager, the only problem is the icon.
I use WinXP sp1. You can reproduce this behaviour simply terminating and relaunching Explorer with task manager.

Hi!

Nice program; good job. I do have a feature request 'though. I have an APlux (www.aplux.com if you're interested) camera that goes to 1280x1024 resolution. Any chance you could support greater than 640x480? Is this a VFW limitation?

Thanks for the nice software,

Tim

Hello Jeff! I am David, from Chile (South of the world). I write to you because I need that you help me. I have Vc++ 6,0, and I have tried to compile the sources, but I have not obtained it. I believe that it lacks the file of project VC++. You can send to me, or publish a ready version to compile. I need it urgent, because one is a work for the university, and have tried to often compile, but it is not to me. Good, from already I am thankful to you, and mándame the account if > is necessary...: David

PS: it excuses my ingles, but it is that I speak Spanish

Great job as usual Jeff.

I have a future request. An option that will allow you to save upto X amount of past images to the hard drive. For example have the option to save 15 of the last images to the drive and name them image1 up to image15. As they get older they are overwritten by the one previous.

It would be great to have that option to have a history to go back a few captures. Otherwise, great job and keep up the good work!

I've got a simple test page below with a java pull setup that might be of interest. It sets things up to have more of a streaming webcam. View the page source to see the page setup.

Every friday I run Webcam2000 pointing to the weekly garbage collection in the street.
So at work, we all bet on what time its going to be collected. Great fun.

We have even written a new application in VB to view the image in a scalable window so we can set it nice and small on our desktop, and if any managers walk past, it is very discrete unlike a webbrowser.

Webcam2000 is very stable and has never crashed or caused any probs.

Well done.

I used your program since 1.65 and i didn't even notice bugs ...
I have a philips toucam pro, all works very good and most of all simple and easy layout. It works thats the good thing about it and its reliable.
If you need any translation in dutch, please let me know
Thnx so much.

Great job, great program.
Had some problems activating it in a web page. Not that it didn't show, but the image didn't update. But thats nothing to do with the program, as far as I can tell.
Got in functioning/updating when I placed the img-tag in an iframe on the page.

This is almost as close as I've ever come to a "free lunch" !! *s*

Thanks !

Yeah Reader, the "HTTP refresh" thing usually only works if you enter the URL for the webcam directly into your browser. It doesn't usually work if you use it in an <IMG> tag. This has to do with the why web browsers are designed to work.

Some people have made JavaScript scripts to cause the image to refresh.

Two things:

First it's a good program and I like it's simplicity; I wouldn't like to see it bloat out. Saying that, and completely contradicting myself :p, the one feature I would like is to manage multiple cams and ports on startup.

Secondly, I'm sure there is a refresh bug if you leave it fetching enough images or running long enough (not sure which). When I've seen this problem, I've restarted webcam2000 and the problem has gone away.

Thanks.

and maybe the ability to add a timestamp on the frame?
 
Posted by zoomkat on 25-Aug-2004 10:13AM CDT
Webcam2000 can include a time/date stamp. The below test page has the time/date. Bottom link shows how to use webcam2000 to get and save sequental or time lapse pix.

what`s the registration key??
 
Posted by Jeff Carlyle on 28-Aug-2004 1:53PM CDT
Andrew: You can already add timestamps. You can find more information on that in the documentation for WebCam2000. For instance, I used the string "%a %B %d, %Y %H:%M %z" for the timestamp caption on my webcam.


Mary: What registration key? WebCam2000 is free, open source software. There is no need to register. (And do you usually go to a product's website for information on how to pirate the product. :-)
