Just downloaded and installed ICS in Borland C++ Builder 5, looks like it is
going to be just the ticket for a little project I am getting ready to work on.
Postcard will be forthcoming as soon as I can get into town and pick one up.
This little project is going to be for my model airplane clubs webcam. We have
a D-Link DSC-900 ordered and I have already created the web html page. What I
now need to do is create is the server side app that will grab an image from
the web cam and FTP it to the internet site. I think I can figure out the FTP
stuff thanks to the great sample app that came with ICS, what I am not sure how
to do grab the image from the camera?
My understanding is the D-Link DSC-900's current image can be accessed from my
local network by simply entering the URL into IE. Something like
http://192.168.0.20/IMAGE.jpg I am going to need to grab this image every
minute or so, rename it and FTP it up to the web site. What I need to know to
get started is which ICS component will I need to use to grab the image so I
can save it to the hard drive?
Any tips would be appreciated, once I have the image on the drive I am fairly
confident I can work out the balance of the stuff the app will need to do. The
web page I created is here http://www.tulsacl.com/Webcam.html Feel free to
steal the HTM code if you need a webcam page as I borrowed most of it myself
from stuff I found on the net and in news groups.
