I just want to take pictures.

Post by wardhj » Mon Aug 10, 2009 4:51 pm

I just want to take single pictures with a cheap webcam, preferably into a simple bitmap.

Obviously, I don't need all Zone Minder's sophisticated infrastructure (web interface, archiving, motion detection, etc).

Should I try to extract some choice pieces of Zone Minder? If so, which pieces?

Or, should I use a software package other than Zone Minder?

Sincere thanks and regards in advance.

ZoneMinder might indeed be overkill for your needs.

I started out with webcamd which does exactly what you need, and not what I wanted, so I moved on to ZoneMinder.

Be careful with webcamd, my experience was that it had overwritten my standard index.html file without asking!
