Capturing Images

I have downloaded MWSnap and can manage to capture images on the cam ...... but they are appearing black when I try to upload them to tinypic. Cere I did follow your advice and tick the "use overlays" box on the Windows Media Player. I am probably doing something else wrong :oops: Help anyone?? Thanks you!!

Ms Charlie, I use MWSnap only to capture still images, I'm not sure how to capture videos.

Ms Charlie try this .....
To save pics from streaming,
download the program MWSnap from http://www.mirekw.com/winfreeware/mwsnap.html
when you use it you might get a black image. To get rid of that,
you have to tick "use overlays" in Windows Media Player,
To find that overlays in WMP go to Tools/options and then performance
there you go to 'advanced users' or just advanced, open it, then tick use overlays. You can close Windows Media Player then.
I like using the window of the wavelit site as it is a fair sized window to watch this cam.
Get back to me if you are still stuck, it's such fun to capture pics.
Are you familiar how to post pics? I use the www.tinypic.com site.

Can you help. We are trying to capture some of these incredible animals on pic's and vid for the kids at school. We bought the program FRAPS and it is a nightmare. What other program can we download to use to capture pictures and also live video of all this. We all have windows Movie maker and Windows XP professional. Any suggestions other then FRAPS would be greately appreciated.
Thank you in advance.... Laughing out loud

Okay, I sent you a mail but i think I am not doing this correctly as the picture is appearing as a video (a live stream) I will figure it out - I am being very blonde today :oops:
