The Image Grabber saves webcam images from a specific address. These are automatically added as media objects and are therefore also available to the WebFront.
As of IP-Symcon 4.0, the media created by the Image Grabber are only written to the hard disk after closing IP-Symcon. The intelligent caching protects the hard disk/ flash memory and the content is only stored in the working memory. The current content can be accessed at runtime via IPS_GetMediaContent.
Set up a new instance via "Add object" -> "Add instance" -> Manufacturer: "(Other)". The following settings can be made in the configuration tab.
With a MJPG stream it is possible to display a webcam with moving images.
In contrast to most other instances, this module does not need a parent instance
