    Hi,

    I was wondering if anyone might be able to help me out with finding a script that does the following:

    Background information: We have an IP Network Camera. The only way to get the camera to send the images to the website is through Motion Detector. It uploads the image everytime there is motion to: http://www.delhicomputerclub.com/webcam/
    The problem is that the file name of the image gets changed, so we can not put a script on the page to refresh every minute for example, for a Live Cam View.

    I need a script that does the following: Can automatically display the lastest picture(s) and then delete really old ones.


    Is this possible at all? And if so, what script is available out there? Or if anyone has any suggestions that we can do without having a script that does this. Our problem is that we don't have a public IP address. We want to camera to be viewable live (2 minute update etc...) We are using an IP Network Camera that only has an option to FTP a image whenever there is motion. Is there any way around this and doing it differently?

    Please help!! We are going crazy not being able to figure it out!

    Thanks
    Laura

    It looks like the images are based on the Gallery_Photo_Album.txt file. It seems you need a text file to be written via script that will look through a given folder, parse the text to a new text file, overwriting the old one with the new images. Either that or have whatever you use to upload the pictures only upload, say 10 images with given names and when it reaches 10 it will overwrite the old images with new ones.
