You will be able to use your webcam to take snapshots or videos from your webcam ! Amd that with motion detection :)

I will post a new version of the TV Recorder when I get my new TV Tuner Card !

OpenMC v0.5


This version does only correct some little nasty bugs with NVidia TV Tuners.

It seems that there is a bug with TV recording too .. I will correct it for v0.6.

Archos AV Serie Compatibility


I finally managed to find a solution for a bug that made self recorded videos incompatible with the Archos AV serie.

You can now record and transfer without having to convert anything for the Archos AV :)

V0.4 is on the way with bug fixes and better remote control support !

OpenMC v0.3


You probably saw that I did not post the source code of OpenMC 0.2 ! This was because of bugs I found in the Beta (binary version).

I have corrected almost all the known bugs (one is still open) and I am designing a new user interface (with themes, based on the decorator pattern for those who are interested).

Version 0.3 will come out soon (probably next week!)

Streaming Server


Thanks to Microsoft again I have embeded a streaming server in OpenMC !

It will be available in v0.0.12 :)

You can now stream any video/audio source to the network !

For the moment you will have to configure your source through Windows Media Encoder !

I will embed the device configuration in OpenMC soon !

There is a limit : you can only have 5 clients !

Stay tuned !

The TV Plug-in is quite good now :)

Look in the release / change notes for more details.

I will try to improve the Picture and the Media Player plug in !

Help needed


This project starts growing and I feel lonely !

One main point about OpenMC is that it supports a custom plug in technology. This means that anyone can write a plug in for it !

I think about a lot of plug ins :
- meteo
- news
- shop
- games
- ...

But I only have two hands and ten fingers ...

If you have some ideas and some time to spend feel free to contact me :)

Fourth Release


It is still a developer release.

I hope that v0.1.0 will be an end user release !

Stay tuned :)

Posted by xavier lois 2003-12-17

Second Release


This is still only a Developer release.

I added some important building blocks for the future beta release.

I know it is full of bugs :) But I will correct it in two or three release.

Please give your Opinion in the "Open Discussion" forum !
