fswebcam is a neat and simple webcam app. It captures images from a V4L1/V4L2 compatible device or file, averages them to reduce noise and draws a caption using the GD Graphics Library which also handles compressing the image to PNG or JPEG. The resulting image is saved to a file or sent to stdio where it can be piped to something like ncftpput or scp.


Latest version is fswebcam-20110717 tar.gz tar.xz

Fswebcam is a command line only app. But, I'm going to try it out and see if it's usefull to me. And I'm goung to try out Motion too. Motion is a program that monitors the video signal from cameras. It is able to detect if a significant part of the picture has changed; in other words, it can detect motion. See more on here...
