We bought your software one week ago. It works with PNG, but if we try to change to JPG it gives an error on line 49 compiling: its the part where it says now PNGEncoder.encode If we try to change that to JPGEncoder.encode etc....it gives an error.
If i use the PNG encoder to make JPG files, it does work, but the JPG files are tooo big 60 kb for such a small picture.
Help

To marcel: I need to take a look at the file that you have. Can you send me your file?
marcel

Posted on 2009 Mar 04

marcel

Posted on 2009 Mar 04

also your original file the, fla file i downloaded after paying has the same error on the same line, so i maybe you dont even need the file, cuz you have it:-)I change this: byte_array=PNGEncoder.encode(bitmap_data); to: byte_array=JPGEncoder.encode(bitmap_data); and then it says undefined methode static class

Hey, I just wanted to drop you a line to say what a fantastic app this is... WELL worth the $15. I'm excited to start using it - so far testing the app has been a breeze, and it's incredibly customizable.

Thanks, thanks, THANKS!

Hello, is it set to show up only the first taken phto on the leftside?

I would like it to show up the new taken photo each time the camera icon clicked, instead of shown the same first taken photo all the time.

To reduce saved images size, just use JPG instead of PNG. JPGEncoder cannot be used as a static class like PNGEncoder.
You can use like that:

var encoding:JPGEncoder = new JPGEncoder(80);
var byte_array=encoding.encode(bitmap_data);

80 is the level of compression. You can put a number from 1-100

Now, I save 12k images instead of 80k... ;)

To r0mg: Thanks. This question was the most asked question. I couldn't have time to answer these. I appreciated

Great app. man! Now I'm testing it for something less complicated other than using a server to display images. I just want to have a new picture every time I click the camera icon, but I don't want to store any pic; just have the immediate result and keep it only to the end of my movie movie. Any help?

I downloaded, however I am not a flash developer. I am using it with a java web app I am creating. What would be the embed tag to save image to a specific directory? I would look at code but only have Flash 8. <object width="550" height="400">
<param name="movie" value="somefilename.swf">
<embed src="takemypicture.swf" width="550" height="400">
</embed>
</object>

displays the cam.. :-)

Hi.

This is pretty much the application what I am looking for, for my employer's project.

Can you please give a brief info about the capabilites of the app, most importantly if it supports Mac and OSX? (and Win, Linux, etc., or it only can use Win ActiveX controls?)
deviantdesign

Posted on 2009 Jun 16

To bananajoe: This is a web based app. So this is crosplatform. If you want a standalone app you should embed the application into your App
jellson1998

Posted on 2009 Jun 16

I downloaded and am trying to make work, I only have flash 8 so I can't edit. Looks like it will do what I need it to do just can't figure it out.. Have the php out there and all. Check out www.arrayconsulting.com/webcam and see if you can see what I am doing wrong.

Posted on 2009 Jun 17

To jellson1998: You have permission problem. PHP cannot write to the folder

Hello there!
Congratulations for the great tool! I wanna buy this for sure asap!
I just need to know two things: Is it possible to take more than one pic per time? Can we set random server directory to save the screen, according to a session id, for example?
Thanks a lot!!
deviantdesign

Posted on 2009 Jun 21

To williamboscardini: You have to configure it in php. Before that you can randomly take pictures via flash. I will consider adding this in second version.

Thank you for your feedback

I just tested it on two different MacBooks, and unfortunatelly it doesn't seem work. :-(

Max OSX 10.4 / 10.5, Safari 4.0
bananajoe

Posted on 2009 Jun 23

Right clicking on the Flash app, then going into the settings and changing the video source to a different one (like a USB one, even on MacBooks) might solve the problem.
bananajoe

Posted on 2009 Jun 23

If it doesn't work, then you need to edit the settings of the Flash application (grant right to access your webcam and select the proper video source).

Right click on the Flash app and choose Settings.

Choose the Privacy tab, where you may need to Allow the Flash app to access your webcam.

If this doesn't solve the problem then reload the page.

If it still doesn't work, then click on the webcam tab and choose a different source. Possibly there will be a USB device, (on MacBook it is "USB Video Class Video", try that first). Try them, one of those should work.

I can confirm that it works on MacBook.

Hello
Can you please tell me if the code is located on a separate classe file or is included in the FLA.
I need a working script with separate class.
Thank you for your answer.
deviantdesign

Posted on 2009 Jul 09

To humbucker: It is in FLA. However you can easily put it in your class file. It is a 10 line script
humbucker

Posted on 2009 Jul 09

Thanks, I've already done that in a separate class (the document class) and it saves me a white image on the server. Any idea why ?
Also is it coded in AS3 ?
deviantdesign

Posted on 2009 Jul 09

To humbucker: It is coded in AS3. The white image can be just because you are saving wrong movieclip
humbucker

Posted on 2009 Jul 10

Well I dont know, would you be ok to look up at my code, how can I send it to you?
No prob if you ask me a little fee for the fix.
Thanks

Posted on 2009 Jul 17

Hi! I would like to ask are there any possibility to change the times of taking the picture instead of 1 into many times? then it will store the picture to the server, ie: click once and it will automatically take a shot of 3 then send it all the same time to the server. OR! maybe click thrice after that it will send to the server.
cookie053177

Posted on 2009 Jul 17

sorry, do you mind if I ask, whenever you click the button it will produce an image, but when you click it for the second time will it replace the old image? thanks!

Great script..just what I was looking for..

Works great in Firefox but not in IE (surprise, surprise). The first picture shows fine, but any further pictures do not show. The futher pictures do save however. Any way to fix this?
deviantdesign

Posted on 2009 Jul 28

To arjuna87: Can you give me a direct link to your web site so I can test it in IE?

Is the destination file configurable and if so what language, I am proficient in php , but know nothing about flash or Flash CS3 (9+) is that required?

Thanks
deviantdesign

Posted on 2009 Oct 06

To cpstine: Destination file configurable in flash file. It is AS3.

I can help you on that if you purchase the software

Hi, I am interested to buy the software.
Is it possible to choose the picture's name and save it in a database.
Thanks in advance.

I am testing everything using XAMPP and it seem to works , but it is unable to show the taken image (that is correctly saved in the folder...)
The same files are working correctly in the remote server...
Any suggestion?
deviantdesign

Posted on 2009 Oct 19

To cccgpr: There is a static file name in the flash file.

l.load(new URLRequest("myPicture.png"));

Please change it to a dynamic variable.
cccgpr

Posted on 2009 Oct 26

Thank for all suggestions...
Now it is working perfectly with XAMMP and in the server, saving in JPG.
A great software, exactly what I was looking for.

Can the pictures be saved a jpegs now? Or can you change it so they save as jpegs automatically with a predefined name as in the specified file get overwritten every time.

Does is work with ASP .Net as well? Is that simple to convert the PHP code into ASP .Net equivalent?
deviantdesign

Posted on 2009 Nov 18

To nadavy: Since ASP.Net does not hove base64_decode function, You need to use following function instead of base64_decode
http://www.motobit.com/tips/detpg_Base64/

It is easy to conver it from PHP to ASP.NET

Question to DeviantDesign
We plan to use High Definition Webcam such as Logitech Pro 9000 to get high resolution still pictures.
If this script conforms with this requirement then we are glad to use it.

Thanks.
farbman

Posted on 2009 Dec 15

Let's say I have four input webcam sources. Is this designed so that I could edit the PHP so that with one button click I could capture images from the four sources to the database as well as any other textual data I might want to include on a form all at once? Also, is this limited to webcams or any video input source? Thanks
deviantdesign

Posted on 2009 Dec 16

To devgaul: This application is independent from Webcam Type. But you need to modify the webcam paramters to get HiDef picture.

Yes you can use it with HiDef webcam
deviantdesign

Posted on 2009 Dec 16

To farbman: Yes you can use it 4 for different sources. When the application starts to run in browser flash player promts you to enable webcam. Once you allow your webcam to be used, right click on flash and click settngs. Under the settings you will see a webcam icon click on it. The you will be able to select webcam from dropdown.

To Deviandesign,

I finally bought your script.
To get HiDef Picture, should I change webcam parameter in the control panel or direct in the source code ?
Thanks.

Hi. I need a very simple portuguese customized solution based on this script for one toten of a promotional stand, asked by a client, on which with only 3 clicks of a touch-screen, each user saves your photo within a choosed passepartout (molding) or a picture frame supplied by the client:
Click 1 - Choose your picture frame (in portuguese = Escolha sua moldura) - Displays 6 linked options supplied by the client.
Click 2 - Click here and make your pose (Clique aqui e faça sua pose) - Regressive chronometer starting on 6 seconds to take the photo.
Click 3 - Did you like you snapshot? Yes - No (Você gostou da sua foto? Sim - Não) - If afirmative, go ahead. If not, go back to home (begging of the system).
Page 4 - Thank you for your visit. You can download you photo on: www.tobedefinedlater.com.br/sgfotos/. (Translation: Agradecemos sua visita. Você pode baixar sua foto diretamente no endereço: www.aserdefinido.com.br/sgfotos).

So, how much cost this solution (every screens will be supplied by us) or can we buy your solution and weselves adapt it?

Thanks. Fernando Martins - Brazil - fernando.hspro@yahoo.com.br

Hi again,

How to send a php var to flash to set dynamic var instead of myPicture.jpg

Ex:

index.php

$id = 4;

on the AS3:

function completed(e:Event):void
  {
   var l = new Loader();
   addChild(l);
   l.load(new URLRequest("m_"+id+".jpg")); 
   video.x = 30;
   mpFrame.x = 20
   l.x = 320;
   l.y = 65;
  }

when I take a new picture : I want to m_4.jpg as my new picture.
and this new picture shoud be shown as the last picture.

idem on the php page : takemypicture.php

I want something like that:

<?php

$filename = "m_4.jpg"; <=== the last name send by AS3

 


$somecontent = base64_decode($_REQUEST['png']);

    if ($handle = fopen($filename, 'w+'))
    if (!fwrite($handle, $somecontent) ===FALSE)  
     fclose($handle);
     
    echo "imageurl=".$filename;
?>

 

Thank you for who can help me.

Ok. So i just purchased a few days ago and just now getting to it.
I have a few questions for deviantdesign as I'm a complete newbie in flash & php interaction.
1) In a post before you talk about making the dynamic: l.load(new URLRequest("myPicture.png")); Please change it to a dynamic variable. How is that achieved in your Flash file?
2) How do I make the file save the image in an specific folder?
3) How do I make the PHP file read this dynamic variable and use this location?
Thank you

I am very interested in purchasing this from you. Do you happen to know the compatibility with Facebook?

Also do you know why it is more pixelated than it should be? Are there fixes for this?

1st place in most popular files :) congrats!  Mine is on 5th place (the dance) :) . also,btw, " do you know why it is more pixelated than it should be? Are there fixes for this?" - Why really it's pixellated?  Are those the settings to keep the server from overload?  or its just my webcam? :)
deviantdesign

Posted on 2011 Oct 17

Pixellation is just because of webcam's aspect ratio. All this finding will be corrected in the second version. It will be available very soon. Thanks for your comment.

Do you have any comment or questions about deviantdesign file?
