    • Hi there,
      Quick question,
      Is it possible to see a remote webcam?
      What should i do?
      Many thanks,
    • 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. 
  • Any chance for a basic command line only version?

    • 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.ps1 -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.

    • You can detect the threading model of the PowerShell Runspace using some simple code. I actually just blogged about this yesterday:
    • 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.
  • Nice work
