sentinel Posted January 17, 2007 Share Posted January 17, 2007 Ok, I need your creativity. At work we have monitors which show which rooms are occupied at any given time. Not video, just a diagram of the room layout, and occupied ones will be a different colour. If you're having trouble picturing it, just think of the arrival/departure screen at an airport. Not the same thing, but a similar idea - video that changes, but not that often. There are monitors all around the building like this, but that's *so* 1990s! I want to hook it up to one of our internal web servers. Ideally what I want is pretty simple: I don't need full streaming video, I just want it to take a cap of a single frame of the video (screenshot) at regular intervals (like every 30 seconds, or 5 minutes, or whatever) and copy it to the web server. Either one running locally on that box, or another one on the network. I'd love to hear ideas for both Windows and Linux, but I'll probably end up using Linux. Free is a must. I generally just Google for this kind of thing, but I'm having trouble finding the results I want. Thanks for your help! :) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
