    I see there's a spotting scope which might be of interest to anyone looking at digiscoping. I know nothing about it just saw it hereSANParks.org Forums • View topic - Digiscoping and thought it looked neat.

    The point is that when spring comes it will all be set up and ready to go. It's aloy a few weeks away when the first birds start to get prepared for mating season.

    Shame this wasn't a week ago, we just ordered a complete hi-res kit off handykam.com complete with box.

    Mind you, the cedar bird box is really well made, and they really do include everything you need in the kit, including the right size drill bit to get the cables inside the building, so it is worth the money.

    Mike.

    So i have just built my Aldi bird box and im up a ladder after luch to fit it.

    Have it running to a tv card and can view it in VLC or Booru webcam (A free ftp webcam app)

    Every time i try and run both application it crashes.

    What software can i use to stream the webcam video/audio on the school network and also ftp images to the website.

    Cheers

    Cooper

    A few years ago I had VisionGS - webcam and video surveillance software running from a TV card. Worked a treat but not used it since.

    I've been using yawcam with my birdbox cam, seems to work well for me.

    I've stumbled across this neat product, but what do you people think?

    Looks like it supports PoE, supports good resolutions, low light and also video/picture capture without the need for a dedicated PC. Not badly priced either and would/should comfortably fit within a bird box.

    I think I wish I'd seen that last year before I crammed an IP camera into a bird box!

    Mind you, are they designed specifically for pub use?
