Gems for capturing video?


#1

Hi,

I’m looking into the possibility of using ruby to drive a video capture
of an application in use. Does anyone know of any gems/libs that would
be useful for this project? (unfortunately I’m stuck on windows)

My thinking is that at the worst case I could use win32ole lib and drive
a video capture program (snagit etc) through that, but I’m looking for
something a little more rubyish :slight_smile:

Any help greatly appreciated
Thanks
Kev

Me too. I have a system with a BT878 based 4 Port DVR card and
associated WDM driver running on Win XP. Currently using py software
Active Webcam but would like to capture shots directly from Ruby if
possible.
