Hi

I want to have up to ten cameras connected via usb to the same computer using a usb hub.

I would like to be able to access a real-time streaming video feed from a webpage which is a single video of the camera feeds being rotated through.

ie camera 1, 10 seconds, 2, ten seconds 3 etc...

Is this possible with this software?

Do most usb camera drivers allow multiple cameras of the same make on the same machine, or am I facing a problem here as well?

Thanks for any help!

Rick

Yes, you can connect multiple cameras to your computer using a USB hub and then use WebCam Monitor to cycle through them. WebCam Monitor's Cycle through mutliple devices feature present in the Device Scheduler will enable you to do so. You can also assign the duration for which you want to monitor from every connected WebCam.

Since WebCam Monitor operates devices based on indices and not based on their names, you will be able to connect multiple cameras of the same make on the same machine.

You can read about setting up multiple cameras from our article at:
