I’ve always liked timelapse video, and have been trying to capture a timelapse of christmas morning every year. This year I found a super simple way to get a timelapse going.
Using fswebcam, you can capture a timelapse super easily. Here is a one line timelapse command.
fswebcam --resolution 640x480 --frames 10 --loop 5 --device /dev/video0 --save out.jpg --exec 'mv out.jpg `date +%F_%T.jpg`'
I’m sure I will find some other good settings as I play with this more, but this took like 5 minutes. Awesome!
