Projects / gspy


Gspy retrieves images from a video4linux device and processes these into a daily MPEG movie on the disk drive. Each image is recorded with a time stamp to ensure accurate real-world correlation. Special motion detection algorithms are used to reduce the size of the daily movies by eliminating pictures with similar content as well as the normal compression obtained by the mpeg process. The result is a time lapse video per day with nonlinear time compression using only the images of interest.
