I just remembered a small project I had in 2011 that I wanted to share with you guys. I had just bought a webcam, and also gotten a cat, and decided to combine the two with programming to make this, a webcam viewer. This way, I could see what my cat was doing while I wasn’t home, by checking the website on my phone.
Things you’ll need:
- Python (Link)
- VideoCapture Plugin (Link) and its dependency, PIL (Link)
- A Webserver equipped with PHP.
- A Webcam.
##PHP code: (index.php)
##Python Code: (capture.py)
