Very nice server indeed.
May be it is possible to have an option in settings to make camera public.
I dont like to log in every time.
And this would allow to display gallery on some other homepage.

Hello janisalnis,
thank you for the feedback.

You need the login only, when you want to manage your account, e.g. to change your password, or to change the limits, to change the camera status.

Per default, your camera is status "show". Then you give others the link, e.g.

When you are logged in, you can change the status of your camera: set it to "hide", then you must be logged in to see the pictures.

Next week i want to add a command "publish": in this status, the camera is presented at the home page of
And: we plan to add a status "protect": then the directory is protected with a .htaccess, and you can share user and password with friends.
And: some more documentation.

Let me know if you have some ideas, what we could improve / implement.
I think about creating zip-files, creating avi videos, links to share images, and creating a special folder for each user, where is no time limit, if one wants to keep some pictures..

Best regards

i think, we will offer timelapse videos soon
all files in one folder --> generate a video;
if we implement a "favorites folder", we can select images, put them into favorites folder, and generate a video.

I had some difficulties with ffmpeg: it only run, if i use "mencoder" first:
use mencoder first,
then ffmpeg,
as described here:

I read with great interest the website.
I also looked at the MobileWebCam application for Android.
I also developed a similar open-source application working for a few mobile platforms (Symbian, Android, WinCE, iOS) - see (or The media is stored on YouTube and a dedicated server. My application is written mostly in Python (smartphone client, etc) - this also allowed me to easily port it to other platforms.
Let me know if you have questions.

With best regards,

Re: Website Gallery Access

habe unsere Webcam "mf-rom" über MobileWebcam erfolgreich eingerichtet und in Betrieb genommen. Der Zugriff auf die Bilder ist per .htaccess geschützt. Leider hat man nach Aufruf der Seite zur Gallery nur Zugang nach Login.
Lässt sich das so ändern, dass meine Kameraden nach Eingabe der über .htaccess festgelegten Zugangskennung auch auf die Gallery Zugriff haben?

Danke schon mal, und viele Grüße

Hi, again me ...

Cam Name: "mf-rom", based on MobileWebcam.

I did some tests related to my issue that there is no access to our gallery without logging in:
Clicking on the Gallery results in: <please Login to visit gallery "mf-rom">

I found out that as soon as I set the .htaccess to "open", there is access for everybody to the latest picture as well as to the gallery.
When I re-enable .htaccess by setting it to status "closed", after giving .htaccess defined username/password, I can see the latest picture, but - as shown above - no access to the gallery without login.

I want to pass the .htaccess user/password to my club colleagues, so that they have access to the latest picture as well as to the gallery, without being public to the rest of the world.

Can this be managed in any way?

Thanks and best regards
