Projects / cammgr


Cammgr manages a collection of web cameras. It will bring cameras online or offline, and initiate or suspend image capture operations. Any camera can be controlled provided a driver is available. Cammgr supports multiple images per camera, default images for inactive cameras, per- user/host/camera notifications, and an easy-to- use configuration file. It can scan Apache log files to auto-initiate image capture, and tune capture frequency can to the minimum needed to ensure that clients receive a new image on request.

      Release Notes: This release provides support for camera capture applications that must run continuously. In addition, a new tool called "phpssnap" was written to provide BSD Unix support for all the popular webcams available through the Linux Philips USB Webcam driver project. A working solution for the USB device to camera name mapping problem was documented and several minor bugs were fixed.

        Release Notes: This release introduces CamClient, a JavaCam-compatible image retrieval applet. With CamClient, the client can select from a collection of available images. CamClient also allows the user to select the refresh interval and freeze the current image. Unlike JavaCam, CamClient will work on Windows XP by thwarting client-side image caching. Webcams may now override other webcams, which is useful for supporting multi-sized images from the same camera. A couple minor bugs were also fixed in this release.
