GBIC >> Software Reviews >> WebCam Capture
WebCam Capture      (July 2007)

WebCam Capture software simply captures an image from a webcam on your PC, then transfers it to a server. Additional features include scheduled image captures, automatic annotation of the image,and creation of the web page on which the image will be displayed.

Review Results
This review is in work. Until the review is complete, I suggest the following application for your webcam capture needs:

  • gbWebCamLite
    gbWebCamLite is a freeware tool for easily capturing an image from a webcam and putting it on a server. It optionally annotates the image with title and date/time. It also can create a web page for viewing the image(s) online.

    gbWebCamLite is one of my freeware applications.
