I've added a second webcam
« on: December 31, 2006, 04:05:36 PM »
I've added a second webcam to my site: http://www.leyner.org/

Webcam #2 is pointed West, toward the indian peaks. The setup I am using now is temporary. I got a new webcam for Christmas, but the quality was not so good and I returned it. The temporary setup is using a retired camcorder. The lens and resolution seem to be very good, I may not want to go back to a cheap webcam.

I also dug an old "Snappy" capture device out of storage in my barn to capture the analog video into the parallel port using a program called "KSnap2".  With all the new snow, I may need to change the font color to something besides white...

Comments, questions welcome.

Happy New Year,
-David

Noice!!

As the cam is facing west.. You may be interested in registering it with http://www.eternalsunset.net

They track the sunset around the globe as it sets.

Cheers,
Dave.

Interesting site, although I noticed a few cameras that clearly state that they are pointing in a direction completely different from West.
