View Full Version : how to put a webcam capture on a webpage

I'd like to put a web cam capture on my website. I want it to automatically update every time I take a snapshot.

An example would be this girl's page: www.sacred.nu

she has an image in the top right of her page that automatically updates when she takes a picture

how would i go about doing this? i'm at my wits end here ;(

My website is powered by word press which makes it even more difficult to understand.

this is something that would be done using software bundled with the webcam.

you will almost assuredly need some kind of server software.
if you have some webcam software that dump to flikr or something, you might be able to wire something up using javascript and JSON feeds, but it would be a bit complicated, and i don't know that wordpress would allow it.

so, look through the software that came with it.

if you can easily get the images somewhere, anywhere on the web, let me know, and i will see if there's anyway to sync them to your wordpress page.
