You need Windows 95/98 and a Connectix Quickcam or other camera.
Create your Webcam.bat file below
echo Webcam now searching for Quickcam.jpg every 30 seconds.
CHOICE /C:FPX /T:F,30 F=Force File Search P=Pause X=Exit
if errorlevel 3 goto Term
if errorlevel 2 goto sleep
if errorlevel 1 goto search
if not exist c:\quickcam\quickcam.jpg goto top
echo Webcam is now in pause mode.
Echo Webcam Terminated!
* Edit above batch file to suit your paths and camera software.
I use Connectix Quickcam so I set it's software into Auto Capture
mode for every three minutes.
* Edit Line 2 if you have cam software other than Quickcam.
* The /C:PB following the word "choice" is not a path but a command
parameter it does not need to be changed. Edit the "99" seconds if
you lower the 180 seconds which you can do with ftp.exe as it is so
fast. You can probably upload a new picture every 60 seconds.
* Save webcam.bat and textfile.txt in \Quickcam directory.
Create Textfile.txt which contains the script commands for FTP.EXE to run.
You can name it something other than textfile.txt. Here is one similar to
mine, you may have to tweak yours to get it to run smoothly. I copied ftp.exe
to my Quickcam directory for convenience sake.
