Okay, I know my friends here at DC can help, either with a code snack or a direction toward other good software. What I am looking for is a simple live webcam window to use. I envision that it would take the input from a USB 2.0 webcam and put it into a resizeable window. Nothing fancy needed, no recording or editing or anything, just a viewer. To make it easier to understand why I am looking for this, I have a monitor that uses GridMove to section off my desktop. In one corner, I just want to be able to see what else is currently going on in the room (I am in a cubical in the back corner, and people sneak up and suprise me alot!).
I have tried several pieces of software including the ArcSoft software that came with it, Debut, and WebCamXP to name a few, but none of them have a simple, resizeable window that views activity in real time. Either they are embedded in a larger window for editing or they are not resizable. I guess the makers can't imagine you would want to see a window in anything less than 640x480. That might be okay if you have a 22" monitor and can have the resolution up high enough that the 640x480 is only a tiny fraction of your screen real estate, but I have an old 17" CRT, and even at the highest resolution supported (1280x1024), it takes up nearly half the screen!
Can someone direct me to a piece of software that can accomplish this?
