gbWebCamLite Overview

gbWebCamLite consists of a single window from which all features may be accessed. The main window displays a preview of the webcam, the most recently captured image, caption settings and various other settings.

The common functions beneath the video preview window are Start, Stop, Reset, Countdown Timer, Capture, and status listbox. Note: the Start/Stop function is supplied by the same button. Its label changes to reflect the function it will perform.

gbWebCamLite can upload images to the server in two ways - automatically at the end of a timed interval, or immediately by pressing the Capture button.
