Webcam Cache

Followers 0

Recommended Posts

I want to set up a webcam cache. However the site I want to use does not have a webcam that takes a picture every so many seconds, but rather uses streaming video.


I have tried clicking on the video portion and saving it. The only way I can figure out how to do it is to do an "ALT-PRINT SCREEN" and paste it into a Word document.


I was really wanting to be able to save it as a gc.com supported format (*.jpb, *.gif etc) so that it could be uploaded with the log for viewing and verification purposes.


Anyone have any suggestions how to do this??

One of the best things in life that is actually FREE!



I don't use this because I'm a Photoshop user... but I read about everywhere. It's regarded as a very respectable image viewing program with more features than most people will ever need, but sure to have the ones that most people actually do need. If you are using MS Word for anything besides text, you are probably doing things the hard way... same goes for MS Paint - download this program today, will be happily working with web images in no time!


IrfanView is a very fast, small, compact and innovative FREEWARE (for non-commercial use) graphic viewer for Windows 9x/ME/NT/2000/XP/2003.


It is trying to be simple for beginners and powerful for professionals.

Just remember that everyone that wants to find your webcam cache will have to do the research and get capture software in order to log it. Since most folks won't realize it until they are on the phone with the cacher at home, this might cause alot of dnf's and frustrated cachers.
