pyGTKCam is a webcam software for Linux (and there was a win32
version, too) that takes snapshots at a set interval and saves or
uploads them to a FTP server. It is capable of adding the usualy
timestamps to the image and has a few tricks of its own. Everything is
configurable from the GUI.
The Windows version used
VideoCapture instead of a
custom module to access the camera.
pyGTKCam is released released under the
GNU General Public License, version 2.
Capture (camera) options
The temporal filtering can be used to reduce noise in the image but of
course it will also blur any movement (which may be a good or a bad
thing.) You can also capture at the highest possible resolution and
add a filter that scales the image down.
One thing I really don't like is the fact that fonts has to be
configured by giving the file name instead just using fonts installed
on the system.
It is also possible to configure a command that copies saved locally
to a remote server with ssh, for example.
Active and inactive.
Uploading can be toggled separately so you can preview the image.
Picture-in-picture with two camera pointing at each other.
And finally, running on Windows (probably XP.)
