Quick, after that .jpg!

SpyCam 5.0 is the latest version of a popular shareware programme that captures .jpg images from any Windows driven video-capture device and transfers them to your Web site. It can capture and display images at any interval and you can also include a customisable text strap, with the date and time. One drawback is that you'll have to create our own HTML page to put your images on, but the site contains sample files.

Add all this the fact that SpyCam 5.0 is self-installing, and you've got a cool new piece of software well worth the $5 (£3ish) the author politely asks for.
