SCWebCam will function like a webcam, except will upload your computer screen instead of using a camera and taking a picture of you LOOKING at your PC screen. (If you have a camera, however, you can even integrate the video image into the capture!).
- Automatic capture and FTP Upload with configurable timer
- Tabbed configuration interface, and relatively human-readable error messages
- Saves image as JPG or PNG with variable quality, size, and thumbnail functionality. (Or 24-bit BMP with sizing and thumbnail). Choice of several image resize engines to balance quality with speed, and image can be sized by percentage or absolute pixel size
- Optionally minimizes to the system tray, with visible countdown and single-click pause
- Detects screen saver, locked workstation, and logoff/shutdown, and can upload an ´offline´ image at those times
- Capture can run in several reduced priority modes to minimize the impact to your system - good for games!
