CamStream project is a collection of tools for webcams and other video-devices, enhancing your Linux system with multimedia video. All written in C++ and with a nice GUI frontend. The interface is based on Qt, an excellent GUI framework.
The aim of this project is build a set of programs for:
Webcamming, that is saving an image and uploading it to a server at regular intervals;
Webcam broadcast (including server);
Recording movie clips (AVI, Quicktime) from a webcam (and playing them back);
Using a webcam as a security camera.
Here are some key features of "CamStream":
Graphical user interface, it doesn't take command line arguments!
View multiple image streams from webcams or TV cards.
Change image size, brightness, contrast, etc. on the fly.
Save images in a variety of formats.
Include a timestamp in the image and/or the saved filename.
Uploading images to a server with FTP.
Take regular snapshots, or any moment you decide.
All configuration settings are stored per device, not globally.
The Qt library (version >= 2.3.0)
(optional) libjpeg and libpng
