    FMS - capture webcam stream and store

    Hi,
    Does anyone know anything about recording webcam streams and storing them using FMS? I'm looking into capturing the stream as an FLV that can then be stored on the server so it can be played back.

    If anyone has any ideas on hwo to go about this or knows of any good reading material, let me know.

    Thanks,
    Dave

    basically its like this:
    Code:
    var nc:NetConnection = new NetConnection();
    nc.connect(fms_uri);
    var ns:NetStream = new NetStream(nc);
    var mic:Microphone = Microphone.get();
    var cam:Camera = Camera.get();
    ns.attachAudio(mic);
    ns.attachVideo(cam);
    ns.publish(filename, "record");

    I have a fms running. NetConnection is stablish ok.
    This is what i do:
    var audioStream:NetStream = null;
    fsConn = new NetConnection();
    fsConn.connect("rtmp://localhost/app/user1");
    fsConn.onStatus = function(){
    if(fsConn.isConnected == false) return;
    var mic:Microphone = Microphone.get();
    audioStream = new NetStream(fsConn);
    audioStream.attachAudio(mic);
    audioStream.publish("testAudio", "record");

    }

    In the server I have a folder called app in <fms folder>/applications folder. Nothing is saved in any folder.

    Can you help me?

    Thanks.

    I've tried to use this, but either my FMS doesn't work well or I'm doing something wrong.

    I'm pushing the record button. I see movement in the window and the red recording... text, but I can't view the recording and it's not stored anywhere.

    Same with the mr-webcam thing, which I tried first.
    Can anyone help me setting this up. I'm really a flash nOOb. ASP, PHP and .NET is more my territory.

    thanks in advance!

    Having trouble with FMS

    I downloaded the Web Record thanks for the FLA. but its not working I uploaed it to my server, the FMS I guess is located here

    C:\Program Files\Macromedia\Flash Media Server 2\fms2_console.htm

    and the server is called karaoke, now I guess my question would be how would I write the actionscript for the RTMP, the default for webRecord is

    var RTMP:String = "rtmp:/karaoke";

    This is driving me crazy haha, thanks for any help.

    Here is your Record Actionscript Code for Webcam Video & Audio Feeds

    SCRIPT 1:

    var sUser = fuser;
    var connection = connection;
    ncConnection = new NetConnection();
    ncConnection.connect((connection + sUser), sUser, nCpm, "record");
    ncConnection["onStatus"] = function (info){
    if(info.code == "NetConnection.Connect.Success"){
    txConnect.text = "Coonection established";
    gotoAndStop(2);
    } else if(info.code == "NetConnection.Connect.Closed"){
    gotoAndStop(1);
    txConnect.text += "\r>>The connection was closed successfully";
    } else if(info.code == "NetConnection.Call.Failed"){
    gotoAndStop(1);
    txConnect.text += "\r>>The NetConnection.call method was not able to invoke the server-side method or command.";
    txConnect.text += ("\r" + info.description);
    } else if(info.code == "NetConnection.Connect.Failed"){
    gotoAndStop(1);
    txConnect.text += "\r>>The connection attempt failed.";
    } else if(info.code == "NetConnection.Connect.InvalidApp"){
    gotoAndStop(1);
    txConnect.text += "\r>>The application name specified during the connection attempt was not found on the server.";
    } else if(info.code == "NetConnection.Connect.Rejected"){
    gotoAndStop(1);
    txConnect.text += "\r>>The client does not have permission to connect to the application, or the application expected different parameters from those that were passed.";
    } else if(info.code == "NetConnection.Connect.AppShutdown"){
    gotoAndStop(1);
    txConnect.text += "\r>>The application has been shut down (for example, if the application is out of memory resources and must shut down to prevent the server from crashing) or the server has shut down.";
    } else if(info.code = "NetConnection.call.BadVersion"){
    gotoAndStop(1);
    txConnect.text += "\r>>The URI specified in the NetConnection.connect method did not specify \'rtmp\' as the protocol. \'rtmp\' must be specified when connecting to Flash Communication Server.";
    }
    }
    stop();





    SCRIPT 2:

    nsVideo.publish((date_str + type), "record");

    I am trying to record a video with my web cam via a web page using FMS. I noticed you had some luck with that. I was wondering if you can give me some demo files that you got working. I got my FMS setup all setup with Amazon, but having trouble getting the web cam recording to work. Any help would be appreciated very much.

    Thanks,
    Rick

    Sorry for not replying...
    I think it was something in the action script. I'll get back to you all if I figured it out.
    Flash is not installed on my computer anymore.
