Hello,

Very happy to be part of this community.
I bought a  Globalscale Dreamplug, and I'm expecting it later this week.

I would like to do a little project with it, and was wondering if you guys could give me a general direction.

I have an IP camera, which I would like the Dreamplug to connect to (same network switch).
Once connected, I would like the Dreamplug to "pull" a mpeg4 video from the camera and save it locally.
The video will be 60 seconds long.

That's the part I need help with.
The other part, which I can do my self (somewhat!) is to upload via ftp that 60 second file to a webserver.

Any thoughts on what I can do/use for the "video"?
Would ffmpeg be a good place to start?

Thanks to everyone in advance!

Try this http://tldp.org/HOWTO/Webcam-HOWTO/framegrabbers.html
or this https://www.linux.com/news/hardware/peripherals/8211-five-fun-ways-to-use-a-linux-webcam/
I don't have an IP camera and I don't know if these solutions will work with one.

I have a Guruplug server plus with the default Debian Lenny and a usb camera. I use this package
http://code.google.com/p/mjpg-streamer-mini2440/downloads/detail?name=mjpg-streamer-mini2440-bin-libjpeg62.tar.gz&can=4&q= to provide live video.  The mjpg streamer package from other sources are built against a different version of libjpeg from what is on the Guruplug.  If you have a usb camera you could use a shell script to grab images with this package.

Very good information.
Thank you!

I will see how I adapt this to my IP cameras, and update this thread with the information.

The use of USB webcams is... freaking awesome.

Do you know the Zoneminder package (www.zoneminder.com). Maybe it will work for you.
