I use this program with a wireless camera I bought on ebay, for home security purposes. I use it to time-lapse video survey the front of my house. Your program was by far the most inexpensive one out there for time-lapse purposes.... I had to do a little research to see if this program would suit my needs, and it does, absolutely perfect I might add.
HandyAvi meteor trail imaging:
"Excellent, Excellent, Excellent!!
I let the program run all night, and even with passing clouds there was not one false detection in the group. I picked up many "very dim" objects passing through the clouds, with no false detections. I believe you have hit the solution on the nose. I am extremely happy with the results. I believe your program is now the easiest to use, and best of the group, of the existing meteor detection programs."
HandyAvi California Fireball video (Click here to see video):
"This was taken with HandyAvi operating from a second port of the Sentinel all-sky camera system here in Yuba City, California.
This movie is spreading on the Internet & local TV with CREDIT references to HandyAvi & the Sentinel System at every opportunity.
A major event, which might lead to a recovery attempt by NASA, or JPL, if they hear/read about it, and certainly by private local citizens to obtain fragments.
Rare to get a compete video.... Sentinel did not capture the explosion. Just the Fireball."
HandyAvi support when a problem was encountered:
"I'm sorry I missed your call today. I was in a meeting at work.
I have to tell you I am so incredibly impressed with the service level. I never really thought I'd even hear from you. I had a break in at my house... I'm using this setup to attempt to catch them in the act... I know they will be back, I just don't know when.
Anyway... thank you so much for both responding so quickly, taking the problem so seriously, and creating a great little piece of software!"
[We resolved the problem and provided a Beta release to this customer within 12 hours... We can't always guarantee that level of service but we try...]
HandyAvi - Catching a thief:
"...we have deliveries at 2 and 3 am most days when I am fast asleep in my bed and recently things have been going missing but thanks to your motion detection programme and one very small and very cheap web cam we have 'one less' dishonest delivery driver to worry about. The cost of 40 dollars (£24 UK) to buy 'HandyAvi' has saved me about £6 per day in losses
Many, many, thanks,..."
We helped solve a user problem:
It’s working perfectly! Good results from an overnight test.
Thanks for all your help in getting this up and running.
I’ll be purchasing licensing codes tonight, and putting your software to use.
We helped a user solve an IP Camera problem:
Wow, you got it! You're amazing. On a sunday, no less.
I bought this camera because I trust [seller of camera] to sell good stuff, but I might not keep it [the camera]. The hardware may be okay, but the software it came with [it, the camera] really sucks. Now that I can use HandyAvi, maybe I'll keep it [the camera]. Kinda amazing these haven't been standardized. Makes it pretty hard to produce software like yours. Really appreciate what you do.
We helped a user connect his NTSC camera:
Thanks for the help earlier. I just discovered another RCA-to-USB product that works
with HandyAVI. It is the EasyCAP DC60 - USB 2.0 Audio/video Creator. I bought 3 from
Amazon.com for $7.05 each. I just installed one in my Vista machine and it worked
immediately. ... all is working for now.
I hope to produce some beautiful images of Saturn soon. I'll let you know.
[We have tested many USB/Video adapters and each of them worked well with HandyAvi...]
Something we had not thought of:
I use this program for time lapse of a nights sleep, then take the video to my sleep Doctor so he can see what is going on. It has been a great help.
