Screenshot from AVI file.
QuickCam is another security application based on motion-detection. It can stream the video to the internet to enable the
camera's video to be viewed remotely. Motion detection captures the video to a file which can be captured as full frame uncompressed AVI
or with a variety of compression options.
The motion detection is configurable to ignore motion outside a specified area and it can also be set to ignore excessive motion
inside the detection area. This helps to avoid video capture during heavy rain, for example.
QuickCam can be configured to automatically delete captured video files after a specified number of days.

WebStream is primarily a video security application based on motion-detection.
It works with any Windows
Media-compatible video source and has options to:
- Continuously stream video over the internet, independently of the motion detection, using http protocol with
stream bitrates ranging from 20.0 Kbps to 256 Kbps. Using http enables any compatible player to
display the stream (Media Player, VLC, etc).
- Capture video in AVI format with an optional date/time overlay. Video is only
captured when movement is detected and there is an adjustable "run-on" timer
to capture video after movement ceases.
- An audible alarm can be sounded when movement is detected. The sound can be a built-in
siren sound or a user-selected wave file.
- WebStream can control hardware connected to the computer's USB port by
using a commercially available USB interface card.

Mini-Server 1.0 with PHP Support
I wrote Mini-Server primarily so that I could learn PHP programming without
the need to be constantly uploading files to my website in order to use my
website host's http server.|
However, Mini-Server has also turned out to be a useful little http web server in its own right, hence the
addition of one or two simple features such as Authentication and some simple Logkeeping.
If you want to run a website from home, this server could be all you need but please bear in mind that, as it
is primarily a programming development tool, the help file is somewhat limited.
