Axmjpeg application retrieves JPEG images from an MJPEG over HTTP stream that conforms to the Axis Video API, HTTP Interface Specific
Axmjpeg application retrieves JPEG images from an MJPEG over HTTP stream that conforms to the Axis Video API, HTTP Interface Specification.
Axmjpeg retrieves JPEG images from an MJPEG over HTTP stream. The HTTP stream must conform to Revision 2.x of the "Axis Video API, HTTP Interface Specification" (which is available from "http://www.axis.com/techsup/cam_servers/dev/cam_http_api.htm").
Axmjpeg also supports Revision 1.x of this specification provided the optional "Content-Length:" header is enabled.
This tool was written for 'cammgr', the web camera management software available from "http://freshmeat.net/projects/cammgr". Specifically, it allows cammgr to support the great range of Axis network cameras available from "http://www.axis.com".
However, it's easy to come up with other uses for axmjpeg.
The manual page describes the full range of functionality; the basic list is:
- save JPEG images to the same (optionally renamed) file.
- save each JPEG image to a unique file.
- pipe JPEG images to shell commands (for more processing).
- time-based capturing, where only one image per the specified interval will be selected for processing.
Axmjpeg was developed on FreeBSD and tested on a wide range of Unix systems including several Linux variants, HP-UX, Tru64, and SunOS.
What's New in This Release:
The ability to disconnect and reconnect was added for retrieving images over low bandwidth connections.
Error handling was improved. support for AIX was added.
Miscellaneous cleanups were done.
