:wink: hi Maulun,
an other nice idea, I think, is to post the last captured frame with an overlay (in big letters) like "this cam is offline".... this gives not a impressure like (boooooh, this cam is always offline....) or users see what this cam shows if it's online....

Such "CAM-OFFLINE" -pages affect deterring me.

greets from switzerland....

I have now made a new applet that include the possibility to have an offline image on the separate server.

The applet code to use look like this:

Code: Select all

<APPLET CODE=YawApplet.class WIDTH="320" HEIGHT="240">
<param name="Host" value="_Address_to_computer_where_you_run_Yawcam_">
<param name="Port" value="8081">
<param name="OfflineImage" value="OfflineImage.jpg">
</APPLET>

(If you use 8081 as your port number, and the size 320x240.)
You also have to change the "_Address_to_computer_where_you_run_Yawcam_" into a real value.

In other words, you'll have to add the line:

Code: Select all

<param name="OfflineImage" value="OfflineImage.jpg">

to your current code.

You also have to place an image in the same directory as the applet on the server. In the example above it should be named OfflineImage.jpg, but is possible to change if you also change the name in the code. The image can be in the formats: .jpg or .gif or .png

whoops, almost forgot... You can get the new applet here:
http://www.yawcam.com/newapplet/YawApplet.class

Note: If you supply the applet with the OfflineImage param and the filename is incorrect or the file doesn't exist, You will not get any error message at all when the webcam is offline.

A popup with status messages will be visible when you close Yawcam. But this popup will not be shown when you disable the ftp. (Then the offline image will be uploaded via ftp in the background.)

I don't think I get what you mean here... Can you please explain again?

The offline image will be uploaded if you exit yawcam, but not if you just disable the ftp. Is this correct?

:oops: it was a little late at night, sorry.

Yes Malun, this is exactly what I meant.

It dont works since you changed it to post offline pic if exit application.

Ok, I have made some tests now. As you said the uploading of the offline image on exit works. The uploading works also when you disable the ftp, but not if you close yawcam before the upload is complete.
You will have to wait a while before you exit yawcam if you want the image to be uploaded...
This is perhaps not the best behaviour of the software... but again, a user must have the option to exit yawcam without a delay.
If you want to be sure that the image is uploaded, then use the option "Also save on Yawcam's exit" in the settings.

ok, so I tried it many times.

It works sometimes!

Can you add on uploading offline-pic an entry to the console.
Can yawcam save a log.txt (from console)?

This helps debugging.

Sorry again,
I tried to understand this post, but without success, since I don't know what is an applet.

Anyway, my question match this discussion.
It is possible to change the off line and loading picture on straming?

If yes, please could you explain it to me step by step?

Many thanks in advance ;)

That's easy to do.
(I think)

In the installation directory "C:\Program Files\Yawcam\img", you will find the images loading.jpg and offline.jpg.
and ""C:\Program Files\Yawcam\stream\img" also.
I believe you just have to replace them with the image of your choice.
(Keep the same name)
(Over wright the existing content)
