Projects / grabby


Grabby retrieves images from a video4linux or video4linux2 compatible Webcam or TV card. It can send them to an FTP server, can write them to disk, supports JPG and PPM, can auto-tune contrast/brightness, and lots more. It has tons of special effects. It also can display the effects in real time in a window or stream the result to a Web browser.
