Rear View Mirror

------------------------------

This is a simple application that connects to a web camera device or MJPEG enabled webcam and displays a window whenever motion is detected. It was intended to be a "Rear View Mirror" in my cubical so people wouldn't sneak up on me. 

The program also contains a simple HTTP MJPEG server so that other clients can connect to your web camera. 

I developed the front end. The original motion detection was designed by Andrew Kirillov <andrew.kirillov@gmail.com> and uses Image filters from the open source AForge.NET library. His project can be found at the following:

Known Issues
------------------------------

No security on MJPEG server. Anybody can connect.

User will not get a 404 error if a camera doesn't actually exist.

If you remove a camera, people connected to you at that camera will stay connected and should you recreate a camera with that name, it will start sending the new feed to people connected to previous camera.


Todo
------------------------------

Change out recording framework from VFW to something better
