I am a new webcam owner (two actually) and a new ImageSalsa / MovieSalsa user. I have ImageSalsa up and running beautifully (http://www.thorntonweather.com/wx35.php
) and reading in the current conditions tags from Weather Display. No problem there.
MovieSalsa on the other hand is kind of kicking my butt....
First, for the life of me I can't seem to find any sort of user manual. Is there one?
Second, if there isn't a manual, I am curious about learning more about automating the process of generating a WMV from the AVI that MovieSalsa creates. Doing some searching I have come up with one way to generate it using Windows Media Encoder 9 - here are the basics of the batch file:cd c:\Program Files\Windows Media Components\Encoder
Cscript.exe wmcmd.vbs -v_mode 2 -input "C:\Download\movie\mymovie.avi" -output "C:\Download\movie\mymovie.wmv"
That does work but the file size still seems pretty large and I don't seem to be getting the quality of some of the others I have seen. For instance, DeltaWeatherCam.com has beautiful 24 hour videos on his site here: http://deltaweathercam.com/index.php?page=yesterday
and I can't figure out how to encode them with the same sort of quality (granted my cams are nowhere near the high quality that his are).
I guess I am kind of looking for help with the basics (frame rate, WME configuration, etc) - I am sure once I get a nudge I will be able to run with it.
