Hi there, Quick question, Is it possible to see a remote webcam? What should i do? Many thanks, Mapache
Yes, but you need to be logged into an interactive session and the application visible. So if you want to run it on a remote workstation, RDP to it and then run it. That workstation probably already has webcam software installed that is better than this script.
This script is a little over my head, i been messing with it for a few hours and am getting no where, but any chance there could be a command line only version of this, i would like to implement this into one of my scripts but don't like the GUI part of it. Been trying to skim it down to something as simple as "takepicture.ps
1 -path image\path\file .jpg" but seem to be getting no where.
Sorry, it has been a while. I don't believe it is possible without the GUI. From memory the preview image needs to be visible in order to take a snapshot and you need to be logged into an interactive session.
How can I turn on and off my inbuildt webcam camera ?
You can detect the threading model of the PowerShell Runspace using some simple code. I actually just blogged about this yesterday: http://powershe

Thanks Trevor, That's an interesting article and looks like a handy piece of code too.
Make sure you check out Shay's tip in the comment. He explained how to work around the Unknown threading model when using MTA.
'er ... his comment is actually on my old blog (same article) ... I'm still transitioning. http://trevorsu
