I've got a Joomla webcam setup and running at Euxton CE Primary
Superb mate, wish we'd done that when we had some at my previous school. Ended up filming the hatching and my arm was killing hehe.
Can't wait to see the tasty little morsals hatch
Good job on the cam mate!
I wasn't expecting that on the "ChickCam"

awww....wish i had thought of something like that for ours...
Using Yawcam as the main engine - its marvellous.I would love to know the details of this setup...........
It lets you FTP up a series of images to your website - so I've set it to upload a maximum of 5 images and when it uploads a new one, it renames the old ones and the latest becomes image0.jpg.
The sequence of 4 older image from past minute is using an Iframe to ref a simple html file that uses meta refresh every 30 secs.
Yawcam also saves a local image copy every 2 secs that I'll be using to create videos (Photolapse 3, VirtualDub and Riva VideoEncoder to get it into flv file).
And icing on cake - Yawcam automagically run as a webserver so that we can have 3fps video into each classroom to stick up on the projectors
I've taken todays images and currently converting to video showing eggs moving slighty -I'll upload later
Our first chick hatched at 3am - teacher in Austrailia rang ICT Co-ord and they rang me - was in at school at 4:30am!
Vids of first 3 hatchings up on site
I've been watching all day. Popping back and forth watching the 4th hatch. Unfortunately i missed the big event itself!
Just been asked today to set up something similar, as we have an incubator in the nursery and it would be good for the kids to see.
need some more info.
It went on such a long time - all classes came to a halt for an hour - I'll bet you heard the cheer down your way when it finally hatchedPopping back and forth watching the 4th hatch. Unfortunately i missed the big event itself!

What template you using on the school site? I am going to be making a mockup of one so I can show off what I do with joomla, etc since I got hired not at school district like I wanted to but got one with another company that atleast has better pay and better benefits. lol.
