    Looking for a simple Soundtrigger

    Hope this is OK to post something jsut after i've posted something else, but anyway:

    I'm trying to link my camera to my laptop and use a soundtrigger to take photos. So the idea is i clap/fart whatever, and the camera takes a photo.

    I can use gphoto2 for the photo taking part, thats fine and taken care of. I just need something to detect the clap and run a script to take a photo.

    I've tried http://sourceforge.net/projects/audiotrigger/

    which is perfect on paper but i'm having problems so im looking for alternatives. I'm also looking into Entangle at the moment...

    Anyone have any ideas?

    You could work the problem differently, install motion or zoneminder and define a small area in the center of the frame as the detection area. When anything moves in the defined area, a picture is taken. The frequency of pictures can be controlled and you can define the area as small as needed even the corner of the frame and use a pole and a card to activate.
