Using unsupported cameras, like a webcam or phone?

Post by fuzzy » Thu Sep 16, 2021 5:58 pm

Hi all,

This is a little off-the-wall, and definitely outside the scope of what digiCamControl is about, but I'm searching for basically the exact same feature sets that it offers, but with the ability to use a webcam or maybe even a phone/tablet. Does anyone have any ideas on how to get this to work, or know of alternatives? The features that stand out are the motion-based capture, barcode scanning, and naming conventions + auto upload.

Is there a plugin that could adapt these devices to DCC?

Thanks!

DCC have implemented support for most webcameras but the option is turned off in setting->Advanced
I hade some idea to support android phone camera using external app like Ip Webcam https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... bcam&gl=RO but nothing implemented, as alternative you can use this app wit a virtual webcam software like http://ip-webcam.appspot.com/
