Delete/backup/rename the file: C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Photo Acquisition\PreviouslyAcquired.db And you should be able to reimport. I think.

IP cameras are of varying quality, some behaving erratically in my experience. Dealing with their RTSP streams requires a dose of fault-tolerance. The Live555 project provides a relatively fault-tolerant RTSP client implementation, openRTSP, for pulling RTSP audio/video streams via CLI: http://www.live555.com/openRTSP/ For example, to save a camera's RTSP ...

There are a number of websites that can take pictures. Usually they use Flash to access your webcam. Here's one: http://www.cameroid.com Also try searching the web for "take webcam pictures online."

This is one case where the easiest solution might be to use the Android emulator to run DvrSeeSee on your computer (or try out Android-x86), as that seems to be the only use-case I can find (outside of the Hanbang company itself) of this proprietary DVR implementation (and I stress proprietary because this is a common and well known problem with using these ...

As ASUS seems to take some of their FAQs offline, here's the transcript in case the links go down again: Enter into device manager. Choose "USB 2.0... WebCam", and right click to go to "Properties". Click "Detail", and find the PID number in "Value" as shown below. Go to the downloads site and download the correct driver. The correct driver will be the ...

Here's a blog post describing how to manually clean whiteboard photos in The Gimp. And here's script that automates a similar process, which can also be invoked from the command line. I haven't tried either of these myself but they look plausible...

You may have to put them in a DCIM folder on the root of the SD card. If that doesn't work, take a picture (any will do), open it up on the computer, then paste the pictures in the folder created by the camera. One more thing. Some cameras will refuse to show images with different aspect ratios or resolutions than the camera itself takes, in order to reduce ...

It means that the movie was copied by filming it in a cinema or off a tv, using a camera, therefore, cam. These are almost always illegal copies of very low quality. Xvid is just the file format.

I just thought I'd add my two cents and complement BjornR's answer. Instead of running a cron job to periodically kill the VLC process, one could tell VLC to run for a specified amount of time and close afterwards. This is the command that I run on my box: /usr/bin/vlc -vvv rtsp://192.168.1.128:1554/11 --sout=file/ts:/media/path/to/save/location/recording-...

Based on my general knowledge on how Windows 10 Universal Applications work I have no reason to doubt the following explanation by Maury Szwerdszarf. While I could have generated my own answer, from the actual SDK documentation, my existing knowledge on the subject is good enough to determine these two existing explanations are accurate. App Connector ...

What you want without a doubt is ISOBuster - it's IMHO the best optical disc recovery program. That should be able to get any data on the disc off it and into a usable format. IF your VOB files are still corrupt you can try using FFMpeg to reencode the video. Hope that helps!

Ok, What about pictures metadata? If you have the pictures has made by this camera, check the picture Properties>Details Is the camera model there?:)

I believe the Canon Ixus 990IS defaults to PTP mode (At least my Ixus 970IS seems to). There doesn't appear to be a way to change this either. It may be worth using a card reader to transfer the files, if you have access to one. You might also find a more informed answer on one of the sister sites dedicated to photography, such as photography.angle

I've had the same issue with an MP3 player. The solution was the same, also (change the device to MSC). However, this is a setting that is set on the device, not your computer. If your device doesn't have this setting, you are forced to use other suggestions such as use a card reader to mount it as a drive, etc.

I haven't used it myself, but I have read good things about dcraw from time to time. There is apparently some sort of drag-drop windows frontend, no clue how well it works. Note: I can't seem to reach the dcraw site right now, don't know if that is temporary or not... After doing it for a few years, I personally stopped shooting RAW last year. Since I am ...

You can modify the aspect ratio without re-encoding. EDIT : For MP4 files see this article: Change Aspect Ratio of .mp4 without re-encoding See MPEG4 Modifier Modifies MPEG-4 ASP videos (XviD, DivX) without re-encoding (change aspect ratio, edit userdata, remove or add packed bitstream, and change interlaced field order). It can also show ...

If you've got a computer and USB webcam in the room, you could set up motion-triggered recording with software YawCam.

I just created a service a few weeks ago: all you need to do is email your whiteboard picture as an attachment, the service cleans it up and emails it back to you. The service is called Snapclean.me. The email endpoint is doodle@snapclean.me Yes it's self promotion, it is free, though it doesn't meet all of your criteria at this time, it does brighten / ...

Yes there are. The meta info format is called EXIF, and there is a command line tool called exiftool which can to exactly that. Example invocations from the man page: exiftool -DateTimeOriginal-=’0:0:0 1:30:0’ dir Adjust original date/time of all images in directory "dir" by subtracting one hour and 30 minutes. (This is equivalent to ...

Photorec was designed for doing exactly this. It is free, multiplatform and open source. PhotoRec is file data recovery software designed to recover lost files including video, documents and archives from hard disks, CD-ROMs, and lost pictures (thus the Photo Recovery name) from digital camera memory. PhotoRec ignores the file system and goes after the ...

I think Photo Booth, included with Mac OS X, has a time-lapse mode, but I can't check because I'm on a Mac without a camera currently. If it doesn't, you can try an application called Gawker, which bills itself as having a time-lapse mode.

Seems the camera is not identifying itself as a Mass Storage Device, that's what the logs tell me. You can try using: fdisk to list all partitions to confirm it is not mounted sudo fdisk -l Use a software like digiKam or other digital camera management software to see if software recognizes the camera Check the camera settings to see if it is in PICT ...

But are networked video-camera options comparable to or preferable to the radio transmitted dedicated commercial baby-video monitors? Yes! The stuff marketed and branded for babies is mainly junk. Not only can you get a decent wifi web cam hookup for less, it's likely to work much better. But there are two things to keep in mind here. The first is ...

I am running Ubuntu 13.04. The images from my camera are located in /run/user/<user>/gvfs/gphoto2. Use the mount command to find the location.

Just use a USB web cam ($20 for basic, $40 can buy you 720p quality) and any of the freeware/shareware/paid applications out there to build your photo booth. his way, the computer drives the process of taking the pictures, rather than the camera. Here are a couple of links to applications offering this functionality: Link1, Link2. Feel free to Google for ...

This is a common problem, particularly with ASUS and Lenova products, and is almost always a driver issue. Nine times out of ten, simply updating the camera's driver by going to your computer's manufacturer's website and manually downloading and installing it will make the problem go away. If you happen to be one of the unlucky few for whom this doesn't ...
