Would like a webcam archive solution for a hobby site. The script would capture an image file off any website/webcam base on URL and archive that image on our local server.
Each group of images are held in a separate folder, each day's worth of captured images are in a sub folder.
We plan to archive about a dozen different cameras.
The output to the web viewer is a time lapse play back through Flash player with the ability to select images by calendar view. Would have customized settings for each URL and some type of maintenance feature where older images can be removed by date.
Please see PDF for complete details.
Experience preferred, please post or PM with examples of your work.
Hosting on Bluehost
Clean up of old images
Add time stamp
Resize images to predefined size (if this will dramatically effect the prince this is a feature we can do without)
Your advice on server load, methods to archive: database driven or not?
