Projects / VNC Camera Server

VNC Camera Server

Vnccam fetches images as quickly as it can from a webcam that uses HTTP, such as the Axis webcams. It performs minimal processing, such as rotating and overlaying text, and makes the frames available via the VNC protocol (also known as the Remote Framebuffer protocol) and can optionally save them as jpeg files. It works with both Windows and Unix VNC clients.
