Video Recording

Postby Whitey » Mon Jun 13, 2011 7:28 pm

So I can't see anywhere in the software if it does actual video recording or not. I have it set up to take a snapshot ever second but goes about every 2-3sec at a time. I need something that records live video and saves as a new file everyday doesn't have to record audio just need video. Not sure if this can do it some how or if someone knows of a software that I can use that will do it?

Actually that was the same question I had when I started yawcam. describes "images to movie"

which may help.

But my feature request would be "have an option every x minutes convert it [in another thread] to a movie file" [or an option to just save it to a movie file] -- some automated movie file way.

Well like I said I would prefer something that's a continues time as like I said I have it set up to take the image shots ever second but only seems to do it like every 2-4 in between. So when I have some times to where I have caught someone breaking into a car a couple of seconds is a lot of time to lose that can be the shot of the face that I need. So I need like video none stop going or something.

I have motion detection running to record 10 frames (changeable) with an interval of 75ms. So any movement can be converted to a movie with Yawcam.
There are ways to automate this out of Yawcam. You'll need to search. I have, but not knowledgeable enough to type it here. You can send the pics to your own website and have code/program on the website so that anyone (or just you) can visit the site and hit play and the website and coding will automatically convert the pics to video.
I've seen people do this through their weather websites. (Check the forum at - I'm a member there)
Probably at lot easier to automate on your own computer. I'm just about to do this - thanks for the reminder :wink: .
I run my own weather site on my computer. A lot of the automated .jpg to movie are used for timelapse stuff (photo's of weather) but I want to use it to put motion shots into movie - full of action! Good for security. Have a movie of the latest movements available offsite (or on).

By the way, Yawcam does have a feature (does now anyway) to take photo's every x minutes.
