    I want to set up a webcam in my home for when i am out, covering the kitchen and living room, and I already know how to access the video stream for free from another computer and even my android! I can already do this (just the live video stream)

    But id also like for the home computer to take a screen grab of the video every few seconds or so, and dump a JPG in to a folder .... any ideas?? so it will basically record images every few hundred frames or so

    If possible, i will have it store images in to a cloud storage folder that will automatically upload in to the sky drive as soon as anything is uploaded, then simply delete it all and refresh at the end of the week for whichever.

    i have fraps which i use as screen capturing software and it has a repeat screenshot option where it can take a screenshot every second, im sure many other screen capturing programs have that as a standard option aswell.
