    I am trying to get a flash project to refresh an image off a web cam server. I basically attempt to retrieve an image every 10 seconds and display it in a movie.

    Is there a way to add java code to get the picture to refresh, because right now the refresh is only retrieving the image from the temporary internet files.

    Thanks for any help.

    i ve uploaded a source to the movie section

    i ve uploaded a source to the movie section

    so in a vew days it might be online!

    ->

    This is a Flash mx (flash 6) based webcam viewing movie!
    It is like many javaapps - so you can put your webcam stream on your website (it isn’t to let visitor view their own webcam nor for conference, just like a live video).
    You may need a ftp connection and a picture steamig program like coolcam or sitecam (MAC). Name the pushed picture webcam.jpg and recompile the fla to the imagesize you like - thats all!


    i hope it is that, you searching for!
    ps. no java needed (i hate java)

    yep!

    i know... as seen @ shockteam in his ecard beta ;-P

    but i can't use a serversoft ;-( since i've no own private server and only ftp and ssh access (a virtual one like most others). in biz i've some but useing mx for common users atm... you know!)

    so, a thing like coldfusion mx isn't realy useable 4 me, i'll need something like perl, php or tomcat

    may the time go by fast and then, maybe

    C'U ;-)

    u'll know what i mean

    all the best from germany

    i've got to check the friday-nightlive now

    Error opening URL "file:///C|/Documents%20and%20Settings/Tom%20Tryniski/Desktop/webcam.jpg? The Name Of the FIle Im trying to open is webcam.jpg Not webcam.jpg?

    Any Help Would Be appreciated


    loadMovie("webcam.jpg?"+cachebust, this["stream"+i]);

    erase the ? and have the webcam save its webcam.jpg in the same folder as your .swf.

    by the way, I really would like to figure out how to get the camera streaming directly with one of these guys:

    camera.get
    NetStream.prototype.attachAudio
    NetStream.prototype.attachVideo
    NetStream.prototype.send
    NetStream.prototype.publish
    NetStream.prototype.play
    NetStream.prototype.receiveAudio
    NetStream.prototype.receiveVideo

    I Have tryed that but after about 5 or 6 Updates I get this error
    Error opening URL "file:///C|/Documents%20and%20Settings/Tom%20Tryniski/Desktop/webcam.jpg"

    Then it Will Not Update till i Restart Webcam.swf I Think That It is trying to do a read of webcam.jpg While The webcam32 Software is updating the image and it crashes webcam.swf

    hi folks!

    try it on an server!
    i'd tested it on a mac as serverpush unix (ftp) and stationary save on hd -> everything worked fine
    the '?' is to prevent a load by proxy!

    only the millisec add seems not to work (to prevent cache loading!)

    webcam32??? running in demomode?

    cheers

    if you have your very own server then this seems to be very interesting!

    it is a real sneak glance at the future (in about some month)


    http://ecards.shockteam.com/video/

    u'll then need some special serverside software
    like coldfusion mx or similar (from mm?)

    cheers

    i would be delighted over the moon if you know how this is realy done and post here the source (fla) and a list of the needed serversoft!
    thx

    webcam and flash

    Webcam32 is set to Save local to my hard disk every 1 second but really its more like every 2 sec, I am Running A webserver, Flash for some reason thinks the ? after "webcam.jpg?" is the file name not webcam.jpg what i'm save the image as. if i take out the ? after the webcam.jpg it will update for about 5 time Then i get error as mention in previous post then have to restart webcam.swf then same thing happens. What i need to do is stop the caching problem in my browser im running ie 6.0 windowxp


    http://www.flashkit.com/tutorials/Dy...32/more9.shtml

    This tutorial found on this site worked even though i got some erros whitch I Think Has has to do with webcam32 updating image and flash tryting to do a read at the same time but it did not stop image update but when i put this on my server had caching problem from browser That would use cach image not reloaded image from my server

    webcam and flashmx

    Followup if i use the fla
    http://www.flashkit.com/tutorials/Dy...32/index.shtml
    and change in Internet exployer tools, internet options, under setting, and change from automatic to check every visit to page this will work ok, but that just point to a caching issue that most visitors probley use the default automatic setting in exployer. so how do i stop caching , any suggestion will be appreciated
