Hmmm, I could relate this to HTPCs by wondering if we could use an HTPC to run video surveillance in our homes right?
Seriously, though, does anyone know any semi-decent software that would work with a webcam? Having an issue with a certain delivery company that does not come to my house, yet says "delivery attempted" and I am about to make a big stink about it. Would like video proof to back up my complaint with, if possible. I have a Handicam but I don't think it has room to record for the whole 8 hour window I would need.
Was thinking *maybe* I could use my netbook and its webcam?
Anyone have any recommendations? Would want something that could output to a normal video file (avi mpeg4 etc) and that I could speed up (cuz God knows watching 8 hours of video....no thanks! Granted, I hope to only watch maybe half an hour, because the tracking has the time delivery was supposedly attempted :-)
