Image Salsa alternate
« on: March 02, 2019, 11:41:22 PM »
I am using Image Salsa to grab images and FTP them to my website. It has some great features including the time stamping  and FTP. However it will not grab the image on my DLINK IP CAMERA. There are some local cameras I would like to grab an image from also but it refuses. I can copy the URL from these cameras and put the URL in a browser Window they pull up an Image but I.S. yields nothing. Is there other software I can use? I have seen Blue Iris mentioned. Also Webcam XP PRO.

I, too, used Image Salsa several years ago then moved to WebcamXP Pro. However, I moved to Blue Iris a few years back. It's a great product and works well with all my different versions of IP cameras.

I still use my Webcam 7 live stream /stills and overlays.. ... for other files use FLING, and some smaller stuff... I don't worry about time-lapse... If I've an event warranting it, I'll take over manually...
Still Slideshow link... (if cursor over image, it pauses)

I also used Image Salsa for many years but ended up switching to a combination of Iptimelapse for uploading my cam images as well as time lapse and use Netcam Studio for the live and motion detection that I wanted.  Both have worked flawless for me.  http://weather.athelstanewi.com/wxwebcam.php

Personally I just use a bash script since the image is processed on my Webserver (linux)

wget - to grab a snapshot image
Process a template file for what  weather values I want on the image
Then use Imagik's "convert" to add the layers and values onto the top and bottom of the image.
copy the image to a base image for the website, updating it every minute.
Convert another image for WU (150kb)
upload the WU image every 5 minutes using a different script in Crontab.

Does IPTimeLaspe work with USB cameras (local)?

As long as the USB camera can store a JPG locally - yes. (AFAIK)  You need the pro version to do overposting of data, though.

Then you still need something like ImageSalsa to grab the actual video from the USB camera then it goes to IPTimeLapse.

Sorry for the confusion...

I have a Logitech 9000 webcam (USB) that ImageSalsa captured...

I don't know it IPTimeLapse can grab the video from the camera directly or do you need an intermediate program to do that?

If your camera has some command line scripts, this can be put in IPtimelapse to grab a picture.

Something like this:   DCS-936L - http://IPADDRESS:PORT_NUMBER/mjpeg.cgi?user=[USERNAME]&password=[PASSWORD]
