I am experimenting with an AutoIT script to periodically save images from 2 Webcams.
When running the script, I get a windows pop-Up asking me to select the “Video Source”.
Is there any way to eliminate this pop-up?
(1) I am using 2 webcams from 2 different manufacturers.
(2) dllCall($user, “int”, “SendMessage”, “hWnd”, $cap1, “int”, $WM_CAP_DRIVER_CONNECT, “int”, X, “int”, 0)
In the above line, I tried changing the value of “X” from 0 to 1, 2, 3, 4 etc.
But for all non-Zero values, I got a Blank BLACK image.
And for X=0, I get a popup Video Source selection screen.
This makes me think that both Webcams are Device # 0.
As I understand, the script finds 2 devices attached to # 0 and hence gives a pop-up asking me to select one of them.
Is there any way I can manually change one of the webcam to # 1 in the Windows OS (may be in registry or elsewhere) ?
OR any other way to prevent the pop-up Video Source Selection?
Any help here….
PS: I have tried with 2 Webcams from the same company and 2 webcams from different companies.
