Recording by webcam for a whole day ?
Posted on 2009-03-29
I would like to record by webcam one of my rooms, for a whole day long.
I tried to record with the program that comes with my webcam,
but I notice that 8 seconds will take a little more than 1Mb.
I'm afraid it will be too big.
Do you know how I can achieve this ? Low quality is not a problem, but I *need* the video, so it shouldn't be writed/rendered on the hard drive when I stop it, I'm too scared that an error will occur when saving to disk because it will be such a big file or that an error occurred while recording. It should be writed regularly.
I would also like to find a program that will take screenshots every 1 second (compressed jpg) of the output of the webcam..
Thank you for any info
