Show latest image from folder

Post by johan99 » Monday 26 December 2016 10:57

Hi,
I've got a camera (Vistacam) wich I'm unable to add to domoticz. However, I'm OK with showing fotos from it. But it puts images in a folder and all image files gets different names. Is there a simple way to show the newest image file from a folder? I'd like to add that code to my frontpage.html.

The camera stores jpg-files in a folder:
c:\Domoticz\www\cams\chicken
on a windows server.
the files are named similar to this: VSTA016411UKFLZ_0_20161226085543_5.jpg

I'm new to PHP but it could be a good reason to start learning :D

The first part is always the same? Then a date/time stamp with a sequential number at the end?
How often do they update?
Maybe I'll write something tomorrow with the php glob function. Can't be to difficult with such names.

Why not schedule (previously know as AT) a batchfile (or 2) to copy the latest into say c:\domoticz\www\vesta_image.jpg.

Windows standard is to write date/timestamp with LastModified so u can use that for your Latest Image.

After that you can setup a 'static' camera within Domoticz with the url http://domo-ip:domo-port/vesta_image.jpg

And to clean up say daily another to copy/move the last whole day to c:\image_bak\year\month\day

Basic commands are available for these methods in windows. Or learn PowerShell which you give fine grained control over date/time etc.
