Re: Rép. : [K12OSN] Capturing s napshots from camera



OK I'll give you all little more background and it might explain my need for quality :-)

You assumed that we're looking at people :-) we need to count GEESE yes that's right we need to know how many geese roughly are using our field before we are allowed to build a new college. These are Brent geese that come over from Canada to feed etc & the local nature people have said we need to have numbers before we can go ahead, they've said that snapshots would be OK.

It's ridiculous that geese are stopping us build a new College but it's taken almost 3 years to get to this point !!!!

"Quality" isn't as much of a factor as "the presence of" if you are using this for the described purpose.

Problem is that the webcams don't have the sort of lens that we'd need.

I'm looking at a package called "webcam" that's part of xawtv at the mo to see if that'll do it.

My gut feeling is do'nt touch that, get a Linux compatible webcam. It will be a lot less hassle. I'm sure there will be members here that can suggest easy to get compatible webcams.

I've been asked to setup a camera over looking our College's playing field to capture an image every
30 minutes so we can see how much it is being used.

I have a camera with that has a composite video output that I'd like to use and a video input card (not sure if it linux compatible, if not I'll get one that is *grin*) but I'm not sure what software
to use to do this.

Not worried about motion sensing just need a jpg or something every X minutes

Does anyone do this ? Any ideas or pointer where to start.

Thanks
