Embed web cam images in web page
 
Hey guys! Thanks for reading.

I have a REVO Security camera system and it is set up for remote viewing, etc. It has been working great!

My question is: How can I display an image every 5 minutes or so from one of my web cams our web page? Are the REVO cams capable of this?

I have seen nothing in the documentation regarding this and have searched online with no luck.

Here's a link on how to set this sort of thing up from About dot com:

http://webdesign.about.com/cs/multim.../aawebcams.htm

It appears that you need to set the webcam software to save an image at the appropriate intervals, then the webpage grabs the saved image (not the live one) at intervals. It's not the same as streaming content, but this might get you started.

Aside: Generally, I've found the About dot com tutorials pretty well done, excellent when you consider the price.
