    Keeper of the hens

    I've been asked for some 'good' and 'interesting' screengrabs from the webcam...

    Please could you email me any good pics you've taken previously, and if you have time try and get some new ones and send them to me please?

    Need them as soon as possible too (not asking much eh?) - cheers! x

    Depends if I get some good ones!

    A word of warning, I tried to get some and just got a black square where the cam image was, but you might have more luck...

    Thought if some did get in print, that it would be nice having had them sent in by the people that watch the hens!

    I only got a black square when I tried to do a screen grab of the hens a while ago. I'll try it now though and see if I have better luck this time.

    Nope.

    I wonder if it might work if I right click on the hens' window, click 'stop' and then screen grab the still image. Or will 'stop' stop the video streaming forever? I don't dare try just in case...

    Shouldn't stop it forever (a 'refresh' would have it going again). But then again probably wouldn't solve the 'black screen' problem either.

    Nobody has any screengrabs... :(

    Ok... you can do it, but it's a pain...

    You need to download HyperSnap (there's a trial version you can use).

    Then start it, and go into Capture -> Enable video or game capture

    Enable 'dvd or video playback capture' and then you can capture properly...

    Sorry I had to reboot my computer.
    I was not sure as to which screen shot you were looking for, the main page or just the streaming video.

    oh well done Ronald that is very good. I worked out how to do it and was rather pleased with myself as I am not that good with my PC. Then when I tried it with hencam it was just dark. My son said I had done well but I needed to download a gizmo of some sort for the live streaming. I have given up after that as I will just get confused knowing me so I will leave it up to you experts.

    Thanks guys, I've sent the pics off so hopefully one or more will get used (and I included your name so it would be even nicer if they used it and gave you credit!)

    Aw you fool, there's a word doc on your PC with screen grabs...called 'milly funny' or 'milly and chicks' or something, i think there's two. One of them only has screenshots of Webster, Luca and Scrambled, and the other has loads of funny or cute ones.

    Lol... I did ask if we had any, by gmail and text...

    Oh well, it was cute to have them sent in by the people who actually make hencam what it is, so I'm kind of glad it worked out that way.

    It was just one of those real lucky moments - I've never seen Mel that clear before or since!

    I am already credited in a book. Can't remember what its called, but my boss wrote a chapter and had to photograph my hands to show the "6 step handwash technique" and they name-checked me below the pics!!! What a hoot!
