Webcam Video Diary / Re: Feature request: in-video notes

Yes, that way I think it won't be as effective as it could, but probably somehow very useful anyway, and a good starting point. I can't estimate how much difference in efforts/time it would be to support standard (one-dimensional) tags instead of multidimensional ones (i.e. in-video notes), but if the marginal cost is high I'd go with the former too, while if it's low I'd definitely go with the latter.
By the way, when specifying tags for a video/image, it would be important to let the user see all the tags specified for that %IDENTIFIER%, sorted by occurrence (in descending order), and pick from them, or add new ones. (In case of multi-dimensional tags, the "immediately visible" coordinate of course would be the title).

Webcam Video Diary / Feature request: in-video notes

The following would be useful for lucid dreaming purposes (by using Webcam Video Diary to record dreams):

- when recording or playing a video, it's possible to pause and define a "in-video note", that is made by a "title" (input line field) and a "free text" (textarea field);

- the in-video notes are stored into a sqlite database, or whatever (text file?): a record (or text-file line) is an identifier (name?) of the video they belong to, the timestamp in that video, the note's title, and the note's free text;

- possibly, when you insert a in-video note, typing the title it autocompletes using the other in-video notes' titles of every video with the same identifier label (I mean, "%IDENTIFIER%"); and also show the entries somewhere (a popup?) in a sorted-by-occurrence list, where you can click one of those titles and it gets copied into the title input field, together with the associated free-text into the textarea field (but you can still edit both, of course).

Besides, in some tab of the app or wherever you want:

- for a selected %IDENTIFIER%, show the in-video notes' titles sorted by occurrence, and through filters on the free text;

- by clicking them, jump to the corresponding video and timestamp (and play the video from there).

So, for lucid dreaming purposes, for instance one could use the titles for simple descriptions of the hooks (e.g. "pink elephant"), and the free text for some conventional string, e.g. "__IMPOSSIBLE__".
The software could allow to filter notes containing (or not) the string "__IMPOSSIBLE__" into the free text; and eventually also more complex queries (e.g. notes not containing string "__IMPOSSIBLE__" and containing string "stairs").

All of my programs can be used portably.  Just unzip the setup program with any unzip program (rename extension from .exe to .zip if you like).  Then edit the ConfigDir.ini file (rename ConfigDir_Sample.ini to ConfigDir.ini) and make the first line: PORTABLE=TRUE

Awesome, uninstalled and using it in portable mode now.
I see the mouse pointer changing into a cross that I can drag on videos and pictures to make a rectangle, that can be moved and resized: what is it for? It seems that it is not saved...

mouser, 1.02.01 works for me too! It's a great app, with some more features how nice it would be for those lucid dreaming purposes that I wrote about before :) Also, the same features would be useful to take quick but effective notes about ideas when they pop into mind (and I can think a lot of other possible uses too...)

PS: could you post a notification in this thread whenever you update the software? (I didn't notice the availability of the 1.02.01 version).

No way: in Program Options -> Hardware -> Video Device Settings -> Video Source -> Video Input Device, I have the following options:

Google Camera Adapter 1
Google Camera Adapter 0
USB Video Device

Unfortunately none of them works, even if I am on the Live Camera Video tab.
