Webcam Client and Server Suite for the Sony PSP
I am proud to announce the release of the skyPSP Webcam Client and Server suite for the Sony PSP.
What is it?:
The skyPSP Webcam Suite is a pair of applications which transform your PSP into a mobile webcam studio.
These homebrew applications are written in C and do not use HTML or the PSP's web browser.
Server Application - Controls and Other Information:
The server application turns your PSP into a mobile webcam, using the GoCam!/ChottoShot camera for the Sony PSP.
FTP server and the GoCam!/ChottoShot camera ARE REQUIRED for the SERVER application.
Edit the skyPSP.cfg file and add your own ftp login information.
Run the program, it will connect to the first network.
Once it has connected to the network, it will prompt you to connect the camera and press X.
Upon doing so your memory stick and wlan LEDs will flash wildly (saving the cam image, uploading it).
Visit your FTP via whatever url to your domain: the image will be saved as www.yourdomain.com/skyPSPcam.jpg
Video of Server Application:
Client Application - Controls and Other Information:
The client application allows you to view webcam streams on five of the seven continents, in over ten countries.
You DO NOT need an FTP server, or the GoCam!/ChottoShot camera for the CLIENT application.
Snapshots will be posted to my own FTP server and can be viewed at:
Holding the L button when the program starts will save EVERY image to the ms0:/PICTURE/skyPSP/ folder.
Otherwise, if you would like to save a picture, press R anytime to save a snapshot into the ms0:/PICTURE/snapshots/ folder.
The folders will automatically be created so don't worry about that.
If you set up the FTP server information in the .cfg file, the snapshots will automatically upload to your own server.
If not, you can view snapshots at:
Note that everyones snapshots will be posted here and you'll have to browse through them.
Press R Trigger to take a snapshot (as described above)
Left and Right will change to previous or next webcam
Up or Down will enable webcam auto-cycle which will either go to the next or previous webcam after each refresh.
Press Triangle to stop the webcam auto-cycle.
Press X to enable "Theatre Mode"
Press O to switch between grayscale and color mode.
After startup, pressing the L Trigger will toggle between 1 and 2 second refresh.
There are over 40 webcams included in this release:

This uses pgeFont engine by Insert_Witty_Name, which I've modified slightly (and released the modified source at psp-programming).
The graphics aren't polished as this is a BUILD 1 (alpha) release.
Also, due to the varying nature of the internet, when a webcam goes down and does not post images, it will cause the program the crash when you try to access that camera. Just wait and try it again later or on a different day. Unfortunately webcams aren't maintained as regularly as they should be.
Any webcams with images larger than 640x480 will crash the PSP. I plan to fix this and add scaling to future releases.
Please let me know if you have any troubles connecting to your networks
It will only connect to the first access point in the list.
Any questions please comment here or send any questions or comments to firstname.lastname@example.org
I've also attached an updated EBOOT for anybody experiencing issues with the network connection.
It bypasses the sceUtilityCheckNetParam() calls which check to make sure a network even exists in the configuration.
This should solve some issues, but may open more up, as if you do not have any connections in your list, it will still try to connect and will ultimately fail.
I've also increased the timeout from a 5s timeout between connection states to 10s.
Please let me know if this helps solve any issues.
