Webcam Recording Software
We require software to run on a public PC which allows passing customers to record their views on a given subject, opinions etc to a video file on disk. The input device will be a high resolution webcam and USB microphone.
When idle, the program shows a predefined local web page full screen (eg [url removed, login to view]) as a background to attract users- we will design. Within or overlaid on this screen will be the webcam output.
When a potential user presses the left mouse button (actually a push button wired to the mouse button, but you donâ€™t need to consider this) the webcam and sound will be recorded to a file on disk at full video resolution in a standard mpeg or similar format. The background image will also change from [url removed, login to view] to recording.html. The webcam overlay will stay the same. The video will be saved to disk using a filename in the format â€œhhmmss.mpgâ€ where hhmmss is the time of recording.
After 10 seconds of recording a still frame will also be grabbed from the webcam (this should not interrupt video recording) and saved to disk with the same [url removed, login to view] name (i.e. the same start time filename, not the actual time of the grab.
The recording can be stopped by the user again pressing the left mouse button (this will be mentioned in the [url removed, login to view] page that we will design).
If after 2 minutes the user has not pressed the stop button ,the background will change to [url removed, login to view] (recording will continue). This screen (designed by us) will say â€˜press the button to continue recordingâ€™.
If the user does not press anything within 10 seconds then recording will stop and the file will be flagged with a â€œfilename-stop.mpgâ€ suffix. If the user presses the button recording will continue and the background will go back to the recording .html screen (awaiting either a button press for stop or another 2 minute time-out).
Once the stop button is pressed or the time-out occurs the system goes back to its original [url removed, login to view] state.
The program needs to be 100% stable and work under XP and Vista with standard webcams and microphones. It is likely in future we will want further versions with more advanced interfaces.
Payment will be 100% on successful testing and evaluation, GAF escrow is acceptable. Work to start ASAP.
