Quickpost: More Picture-Taking with Python

Filed under: Hardware,My Software,Quickpost — Didier Stevens @ 9:24

Per @TimelessP’s request, here’s so more Python code that can be used for time-lapse photography.

It’s code I wrote to take surveillance pictures from IP-cameras:

20090720-171815

You have to update 2 config files with the data of your IP-cameras: vs.config and credentials.config. Fields in the config files are tab-separated.

vs.config contains the IP cameras, example:

Hall.jpg    http://192.168.1.1/IMAGE.JPG    -

First field is the prefix for the name when saving the picture (suffix is a timestamp). Second field is the URL to access the picture on the IP camera (depends on the model your using). Third field is a fixed name for the picture, use a hyphen (-) if not used.

credentials.config contains the passwords to access the IP-cameras, example:

192.168.1.1    admin    password
